Proverbs 30

"Give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is needful for me, lest I be full and deny you and say, “Who is the Lord?” or lest I be poor and steal and profane the name of my God."
Verses 8-9

This seems such a wise desire for God to provide, and to remain dependent on Him.

The last half of the chapter has a series of 3 or 4 things that strike the author, and usually the last in the list is the main focus.  The theme seems to be the mystery of love (vss. 19, 23), and the limitations of kingship (vss. 28, 31-33).  The last three verses are quite a rebuke to a prideful king who is pushing too hard.
