New International Version
Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.
King James Bible
Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
Darby Bible Translation
Boast not thyself of to-morrow, for thou knowest not what a day will bring forth.
World English Bible
Don't boast about tomorrow; for you don't know what a day may bring forth.
Young's Literal Translation
Boast not thyself of to-morrow, For thou knowest not what a day bringeth forth.
Proverbs 27:1 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible

Every man wishes to live longer, and therefore wishes for to-morrow; and when to-morrow comes, then to-morrow, and so on.

The Call of Matthew.
And I'll say to myself, "You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry."'
"But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?'
Now listen, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money."
Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
1 Kings 20:11
The king of Israel answered, "Tell him: 'One who puts on his armor should not boast like one who takes it off.'"
