The preparationsH4633 of the heartH3820 in man,H120 and the answerH4617 of the tongue,H3956 is from the LORD.H3068
AllH3605 the waysH1870 of a manH376 are cleanH2134 in his own eyes;H5869 but the LORDH3068 weighsH8505 the spirits.H7307
CommitH1556 your worksH4639 to the LORD,H3068 and your thoughtsH4284 shall be established.H3559
The LORDH3068 has madeH6466 allH3605 things for himself:H4617 yes,H1571 evenH1571 the wickedH7563 for the dayH3117 of evil.H7451
EveryH3605 one that is proudH1362 in heartH3820 is an abominationH8441 to the LORD:H3068 though handH3027 join in hand,H3027 he shall not be unpunished.H5352
By mercyH2617 and truthH571 iniquityH5771 is purged:H3722 and by the fearH3374 of the LORDH3068 men departH5493 from evil.H7451
When a man'sH376 waysH1870 pleaseH7521 the LORD,H3068 he makes evenH1571 his enemiesH341 to be at peaceH7999 with him.
BetterH2896 is a littleH4592 with righteousnessH6666 than greatH7230 revenuesH8393 withoutH3808 right.H4941
A man'sH120 heartH3820 devisesH2803 his way:H1870 but the LORDH3068 directsH3559 his steps.H6806
A divineH7081 sentenceH7081 is in the lipsH8193 of the king:H4428 his mouthH6310 transgressesH4603 not in judgment.H4941
A justH4941 weightH6425 and balanceH3976 are the LORD's:H3068 allH3605 the weightsH68 of the bagH3599 are his work.H4639
It is an abominationH8441 to kingsH4428 to commitH6213 wickedness:H7562 for the throneH3678 is establishedH3559 by righteousness.H6666
RighteousH6664 lipsH8193 are the delightH7522 of kings;H4428 and they loveH157 him that speaksH1696 right.H3477
The wrathH2534 of a kingH4428 is as messengersH4397 of death:H4194 but a wiseH2450 manH376 will pacifyH3722 it.
In the lightH216 of the king'sH4428 countenanceH6440 is life;H2416 and his favorH7522 is as a cloudH5645 of the latterH4456 rain.H4456
HowH4100 much betterH2896 is it to getH7069 wisdomH2451 than gold!H2742 and to getH7069 understandingH998 rather to be chosenH977 than silver!H3701
The highwayH4546 of the uprightH3477 is to departH5493 from evil:H7451 he that keepsH5341 his wayH1870 preservesH8104 his soul.H5315
PrideH1347 goes beforeH6440 destruction,H7667 and an haughtyH1363 spiritH7307 beforeH6440 a fall.H3783
BetterH2896 it is to be of an humbleH8213 spiritH7307 with the lowly,H6041 thanH4480 to divideH2505 the spoilH7998 with the proud.H1343
He that handlesH5921 a matterH1697 wiselyH7919 shall findH4672 good:H2896 and whoever trustsH982 in the LORD,H3068 happyH835 is he.
The wiseH2450 in heartH3820 shall be calledH7121 prudent:H995 and the sweetnessH4986 of the lipsH8193 increasesH3254 learning.H3948
UnderstandingH7922 is a wellspringH4726 of lifeH2416 to him that hasH1167 it: but the instructionH4148 of foolsH191 is folly.H200
The heartH3820 of the wiseH2450 teachesH7919 his mouth,H6310 and addsH3254 learningH3948 to his lips.H8193
PleasantH5278 wordsH561 are as an honeycomb,H6688 H1706 sweetH4966 to the soul,H5315 and healthH4832 to the bones.H6106
There is a wayH1870 that seemsH6440 rightH3477 to a man,H376 but the endH319 thereof are the waysH1870 of death.H4194
He that laborsH6001 laborsH5998 for himself; for his mouthH6310 cravesH404 it of him.
An ungodlyH1100 manH376 digsH3738 up evil:H7451 and in his lipsH8193 there is as a burningH6867 fire.H784
A fraudulentH8419 manH376 sowsH7971 strife:H4066 and a whispererH5372 separatesH6504 chiefH441 friends.H441
A violentH2555 manH376 enticesH6601 his neighbor,H7453 and leadsH3212 him into the wayH1870 that is not good.H2896
He shutsH6095 his eyesH5869 to deviseH2803 fraudulentH8419 things: movingH7169 his lipsH8193 he bringsH3615 evilH7451 to pass.H3615
The hoaryH7872 head is a crownH5850 of glory,H8597 if it be foundH4672 in the wayH1870 of righteousness.H6666
He that is slowH750 to angerH639 is betterH2896 thanH4480 the mighty;H1368 and he that rulesH4910 his spiritH7307 than he that takesH3920 a city.H5892
The lotH1486 is castH2904 into the lap;H2436 but the wholeH3605 disposingH4941 thereof is of the LORD.H3068
