BetterH2896 is a dryH2720 morsel,H6595 and quietnessH7962 therewith, than an houseH1004 fullH4392 of sacrificesH2077 with strife.H7379
A wiseH7919 servantH5650 shall have ruleH4910 over a sonH1121 that causes shame,H954 and shall have partH2505 of the inheritanceH5159 amongH8432 the brothers.H251
The finingH4715 potH4715 is for silver,H3701 and the furnaceH3564 for gold:H2091 but the LORDH3068 triesH974 the hearts.H3826
A wickedH7489 doer gives heedH7181 to falseH205 lips;H8193 and a liarH8267 gives earH238 to a naughtyH1942 tongue.H3956
Whoever mocksH3932 the poorH7326 reproachesH2778 his Maker:H6213 and he that is gladH8056 at calamitiesH343 shall not be unpunished.H5352
Children'sH1121 childrenH1121 are the crownH5850 of oldH2205 men; and the gloryH8597 of childrenH1121 are their fathers.H1
ExcellentH3499 speechH8193 becomesH5000 not a fool:H5036 muchH637 less do lyingH8267 lipsH8193 a prince.H5081
A giftH7810 is as a preciousH2580 stoneH68 in the eyesH5869 of him that hasH1167 it: whereverH413 it turns,H6437 it prospers.H7919
He that coversH3680 a transgressionH6588 seeksH1245 love;H160 but he that repeatsH8138 a matterH1697 separatesH6504 very friends.H441
A reproofH1606 entersH5181 more into a wiseH995 man than an hundredH3967 stripesH5221 into a fool.H3684
An evilH7451 man seeksH1245 onlyH389 rebellion:H4805 therefore a cruelH394 messengerH4397 shall be sentH7971 against him.
Let a bearH1677 robbedH7909 of her whelps meetH6298 a man,H376 ratherH408 than a foolH3684 in his folly.H200
Whoever rewardsH7725 evilH7451 for good,H2896 evilH7451 shall not departH4185 from his house.H1004
The beginningH7225 of strifeH4066 is as when one letsH6362 out water:H4325 therefore leaveH5203 off contention,H7379 beforeH6440 it be meddledH1566 with.
He that justifiesH6663 the wicked,H7563 and he that condemnsH7561 the just,H6662 evenH1571 they bothH8147 are abominationH8441 to the LORD.H3068
WhyH4100 H2088 is there a priceH4242 in the handH3027 of a foolH3684 to getH7069 wisdom,H2451 seeing he has noH369 heartH3820 to it?
A friendH7453 lovesH157 at allH3605 times,H6256 and a brotherH251 is bornH3205 for adversity.H6869
A manH120 voidH2638 of understandingH3820 strikesH8628 hands,H3709 and becomesH6148 suretyH6161 in the presenceH6440 of his friend.H7453
He lovesH157 transgressionH6588 that lovesH157 strife:H4683 and he that exaltsH1361 his gateH6607 seeksH1245 destruction.H7667
He that has a fraudulentH6141 heartH3820 findsH4672 noH3808 good:H2896 and he that has a perverseH2015 tongueH3956 fallsH5307 into mischief.H7451
He that begetsH3205 a foolH3684 does it to his sorrow:H8424 and the fatherH1 of a foolH5036 has noH3808 joy.H8056
A merryH8056 heartH3820 does goodH3190 like a medicine:H1456 but a brokenH5218 spiritH7307 driesH3001 the bones.H1634
A wickedH7563 man takesH3947 a giftH7810 out of the bosomH2436 to pervertH5186 the waysH734 of judgment.H4941
WisdomH2451 is beforeH854 H6440 him that has understanding;H995 but the eyesH5869 of a foolH3684 are in the endsH7097 of the earth.H776
A foolishH3684 sonH1121 is a griefH3708 to his father,H1 and bitternessH4470 to her that boreH3205 him.
AlsoH1571 to punishH6064 the justH6662 is not good,H2896 nor to strikeH5221 princesH5081 for equity.H3476
He that has knowledgeH1847 sparesH2820 his words:H561 and a manH376 of understandingH8394 is of an excellentH7119 spirit.H7307
EvenH1571 a fool,H191 when he holdsH2790 his peace,H2790 is countedH2803 wise:H2450 and he that shutsH331 his lipsH8193 is esteemed a man of understanding.H995
