[It is] naught, [it is] naught, saith the buyer: but when he is gone his way, then he boasteth.
Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift [is like] clouds and wind without rain.
Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
Shall the axe boast itself against him that heweth therewith? [or] shall the saw magnify itself against him that shaketh it? as if the rod should shake [itself] against them that lift it up, [or] as if the staff should lift up [itself, as if it were] no wood.
Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise [man] glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty [man] glory in his might, let not the rich [man] glory in his riches:
Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.
