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:
But love covereth all sins.
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: But he that refuseth reproof erreth.
He that hideth hatred with lying lips,
And he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.
In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: But he that refraineth his lips is wise.
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: But the desire of the righteous shall be granted.
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
The fear of the Lord prolongeth days:
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: But the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness.
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
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
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: And he that hateth suretiship is sure.
A gracious woman retaineth honour:
The merciful man doeth good to his own soul:
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;
but it tendeth to poverty.
The liberal soul shall be made fat:
And he that watereth shall be watered also himself.
