He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: Therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.

Whoso curseth his father or his mother,

His lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness.

An inheritance may be gotten hastily at the beginning;

But the end thereof shall not be blessed.

Say not thou, I will recompense evil;

But wait on the Lord, and he shall save thee.

Divers weights are an abomination unto the Lord; And a false balance is not good.

Man's goings are of the Lord;

How can a man then understand his own way?

It is a snare to the man who devoureth that which is holy,

And after vows to make enquiry.

A wise king scattereth the wicked,
And bringeth the wheel over them.

The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord,
Searching all the inward parts of the belly.

Mercy and truth preserve the king:
And his throne is upholden by mercy.

The glory of young men is their strength:
And the beauty of old men is the grey head.

The blueness of a wound cleanseth away evil:
So do stripes the inward parts of the belly.

THE king's heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water:

He turneth it whithersoever he will.

Every way of a man is right in his own eyes:
But the Lord pondereth the hearts.

To do justice and judgment

Is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.

An high look, and a proud heart,

And the plowing of the wicked, is sin.

The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteous


But of every one that is hasty only to want.

The getting of treasures by a lying tongue

Is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.

The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them;
Because they refuse to do judgment.

The way of man is froward and strange:

But as for the pure, his work is right.

It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop,
Than with a brawling woman in a wide house.

The soul of the wicked desireth evil:

His neighbour findeth no favour in his eyes.

When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise:

And when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.

The righteous man wisely considereth the house of the wicked:

But God overthroweth the wicked for their wicked


Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, He also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard. A gift in secret pacifieth anger:

And a reward in the bosom strong wrath.

It is joy to the just to do judgment:

But destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.

The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding

Shall remain in the congregation of the dead.

He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man:
He that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.

The wicked shall be a ransom for the righteous, And the transgressor for the upright.

It is better to dwell in the wilderness,

Than with a contentious and an angry woman.

There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwell

ing of the wise;

But a foolish man spendeth it up.

He that followeth after righteousness and mercy Findeth life, righteousness, and honour.

A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty,
And casteth down the strength of the confidence

Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue
Keepeth his soul from troubles.

Proud and haughty scorner is his name,

Who dealeth in proud wrath.

The desire of the slothful killeth him;
For his hands refuse to labour.

He coveteth greedily all the day long:
But the righteous giveth and spareth not.

The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination:

How much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?

A false witness shall perish:

But the man that heareth speaketh constantly.

A wicked man hardeneth his face:

But as for the upright, he directeth his way.

There is no wisdom nor understanding
Nor counsel against the Lord.

The horse is prepared against the day of battle: But safety is of the Lord.

A GOOD name is rather to be chosen than great riches, And loving favour rather than silver and gold.

The rich and poor meet together:

The Lord is the maker of them all.

A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself:

But the simple pass on, and are punished.

By humility and the fear of the Lord

Are riches, and honour, and life.

Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward:
He that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.

Train up a child in the way he should go:
And when he is old, he will not depart from it.

The rich ruleth over the poor,

And the borrower is servant to the lender.
