Iron Sharpens Iron

Proverbs 27:17-22
As iron sharpens iron,
so a friend sharpens a friend.
As workers who tend a fig tree
are allowed to eat the fruit,
so workers who protect
their employer’s interests
will be rewarded.
As a face is reflected in water,
so the heart reflects the real person.
Just as Death and Destruction
are never satisfied,
so human desire is never satisfied.
Fire tests the purity
of silver and gold,
but a person is tested
by being praised.
You cannot separate fools
from their foolishness,
even though you grind them
like grain
with mortar and pestle.
