The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the Lord:
But he loveth him that folioweth after righteousness.
Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way:
And he that hateth reproof shall die.
Hell and destruction are before the Lord:
A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him:
A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance:
The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh
knowledge: But the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.
All the days of the afflicted are evil:
But he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.
Better is little with the fear of the Lord
Better is a dinner of herbs where love is,
A wrathful man stirreth up strife:
But he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.
The way of the slothful man is as an hedge of thorns:
A wise son maketh a glad father:
Folly is joy to him that is destitute of wisdom:
Without counsel purposes are disappointed:
A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth:
The way of life is above to the wise,
The Lord will destroy the house of the proud:
The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord:
But the words of the pure are pleasant words.
He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; But he that hateth gifts shall live.
The heart of the righteous studieth to answer:
The Lord is far from the wicked:
But he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart:
The ear that heareth the reproof of life
He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul:
The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; And before honour is humility.
The preparations of the heart in man,
And the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord.
All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes;
Commit thy works unto the Lord,
The Lord hath made all things for himself:
Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord:
Though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
By mercy and truth iniquity is purged:
And by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil.
When a man's ways please the Lord,
Better is a little with righteousness
A man's heart deviseth his way:
A divine sentence is in the lips of the king:
A just weight and balance are the Lord's:
It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness:
Righteous lips are the delight of kings;
The wrath of a king is as messengers of death:
In the light of the king's countenance is life;
How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!
The highway of the upright is to depart from evil:
Pride goeth before destruction,
Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly,
He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: And whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.
The wise in heart shall be called prudent:
And the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.
Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it:
But the instruction of fools is folly.
The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth,
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb,
There is a way that seemeth right unto a man,
