Whoever lovesH157 instructionH4148 lovesH157 knowledge:H1847 but he that hatesH8130 reproofH8433 is brutish.H1197
A goodH2896 man obtainsH6329 favorH7522 of the LORD:H3068 but a manH376 of wickedH4209 devicesH4209 will he condemn.H7561
A manH120 shall not be establishedH3559 by wickedness:H7562 but the rootH8328 of the righteousH6662 shall not be moved.H4131
A virtuousH2428 womanH802 is a crownH5850 to her husband:H1167 but she that makes ashamedH954 is as rottennessH7538 in his bones.H6106
The thoughtsH4284 of the righteousH6662 are right:H4941 but the counselsH8458 of the wickedH7563 are deceit.H4820
The wordsH1697 of the wickedH7563 are to lie in waitH693 for blood:H1818 but the mouthH6310 of the uprightH3477 shall deliverH5337 them.
The wickedH7563 are overthrown,H2015 and are not: but the houseH1004 of the righteousH6662 shall stand.H5975
A manH376 shall be commendedH1984 accordingH6310 to his wisdom:H7922 but he that is of a perverseH5753 heartH3820 shall be despised.H937
He that is despised,H7034 and has a servant,H5650 is betterH2896 than he that honorsH3513 himself, and lacksH2638 bread.H3899
A righteousH6662 man regardsH3045 the lifeH5315 of his beast:H929 but the tender merciesH7356 of the wickedH7563 are cruel.H394
He that tillsH5647 his landH127 shall be satisfiedH7646 with bread:H3899 but he that followsH7291 vainH7386 persons is voidH2638 of understanding.H3820
The wickedH7563 desiresH2530 the netH4686 of evilH7451 men: but the rootH8328 of the righteousH6662 yieldsH5414 fruit.
The wickedH7451 is snaredH4170 by the transgressionH6588 of his lips:H8193 but the justH6662 shall comeH3318 out of trouble.H6869
A manH376 shall be satisfiedH7646 with goodH2896 by the fruitH6529 of his mouth:H6310 and the recompenseH1576 of a man'sH120 handsH3027 shall be renderedH7725 to him.
The wayH1870 of a foolH191 is rightH3477 in his own eyes:H5869 but he that listensH8085 to counselH6098 is wise.H2450
A fool'sH191 wrathH3708 is presentlyH3117 known:H3045 but a prudentH6175 man coversH3680 shame.H7036
He that speaksH6315 truthH530 showsH5046 forth righteousness:H6664 but a falseH8267 witnessH5707 deceit.H4820
There is that speaksH981 like the piercingsH4094 of a sword:H2719 but the tongueH3956 of the wiseH2450 is health.H4832
The lipH8193 of truthH571 shall be establishedH3559 for ever:H5703 but a lyingH8367 tongueH3956 is but for a moment.H7281
DeceitH4820 is in the heartH3820 of them that imagineH2790 evil:H7451 but to the counsellorsH3289 of peaceH7965 is joy.H8057
There shall noH3808 evilH205 happenH579 to the just:H6662 but the wickedH7563 shall be filledH4390 with mischief.H7451
LyingH8367 lipsH8193 are abominationH8441 to the LORD:H3068 but they that dealH6213 trulyH530 are his delight.H7522
A prudentH6175 manH120 concealsH3680 knowledge:H1847 but the heartH3820 of foolsH3684 proclaimsH7121 foolishness.H200
The handH3027 of the diligentH2742 shall bearH4910 rule:H4910 but the slothfulH7423 shall be under tribute.H4522
HeavinessH1674 in the heartH3820 of manH376 makes it stoop:H7812 but a goodH2896 wordH1697 makes it glad.H8056
The righteousH6662 is more excellentH8446 than his neighbor:H7453 but the wayH1870 of the wickedH7563 seducesH8582 them.
The slothfulH7423 man roastsH2760 not that which he took in hunting:H6718 but the substanceH1952 of a diligentH2742 manH120 is precious.H3368
In the wayH734 of righteousnessH6666 is life:H2416 and in the pathwayH1870 H5410 thereof there is noH408 death.H4194
