The wise in heart will receive commandments:
But a prating fool shall fall.
He that walketh uprightly walketh surely:
He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow:
The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life:
Hatred stirreth up strifes:
In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found:
But a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.
Wise men lay up knowledge:
But the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.
The rich man's wealth is his strong city:
The labour of the righteous tendeth to life:
He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction:
He that hideth hatred with lying lips,
In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin:
The tongue of the just is as choice silver:
The lips of the righteous feed many:
The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich,
It is as sport to a fool to do mischief:
The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him:
As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: But the righteous is an everlasting foundation.
As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, So is the sluggard to them that send him.
The fear of the Lord prolongeth days:
But the years of the wicked shall be shortened.
The hope of the righteous shall be gladness:
The way of the Lord is strength to the upright:
But destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.
The righteous shall never be removed:
The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom:
The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable:
A False balance is abomination to the Lord:
When pride cometh, then cometh shame:
The integrity of the upright shall guide them:
Riches profit not in the day of wrath:
The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way:
But the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.
The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them: But transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness.
When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish:
And the hope of unjust men perisheth.
The righteous is delivered out of trouble,
An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour:
But through knowledge shall the just be delivered.
When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth:
And when the wicked perish, there is shouting.
By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: But it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.
He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: But a man of understanding holdeth his peace.
A talebearer revealeth secrets:
But he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
Where no counsel is, the people fall:
But in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.
He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it:
A gracious woman retaineth honour:
The merciful man doeth good to his own soul:
But he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.
The wicked worketh a deceitful work: But to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward.
As righteousness tendeth to life:
So he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death.
They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the Lord:
But such as are upright in their way are his delight.
Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished:
But the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout,
So is a fair woman which is without discretion.
The desire of the righteous is only good:
There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth;
The liberal soul shall be made fat:
And he that watereth shall be watered also himself.
