A GOOD nameH8034 is rather to be chosenH977 than greatH7227 riches,H6239 and lovingH2896 favorH2580 rather than silverH3701 and gold.H2091
The richH6223 and poorH7326 meetH6298 together: the LORDH3068 is the makerH6213 of them all.H3605
A prudentH6175 man foreseesH7200 the evil,H7451 and hidesH5641 himself: but the simpleH6612 passH5674 on, and are punished.H6064
By humilityH6038 and the fearH3374 of the LORDH3068 are riches,H6239 and honor,H3519 and life.H2416
ThornsH6791 and snaresH6341 are in the wayH1870 of the fraudulent:H6141 he that does keepH8104 his soulH5315 shall be farH7368 from them.
TrainH2596 up a childH5288 in the wayH1870 he should go:H6310 and whenH3588 he is old,H2204 he will not departH5493 from it.
The richH6223 rulesH4910 over the poor,H7326 and the borrowerH3867 is servantH5650 to the lender.H3867
He that sowsH2232 iniquityH5766 shall reapH7114 vanity:H205 and the rodH7626 of his angerH5678 shall fail.H3615
He that has a bountifulH2896 eyeH5869 shall be blessed;H1288 for he givesH5414 of his breadH3899 to the poor.H1800
CastH1644 out the scorner,H3887 and contentionH4066 shall goH3318 out; yes, strifeH1779 and reproachH7036 shall cease.H7673
He that lovesH157 purenessH2890 of heart,H3820 for the graceH2580 of his lipsH8193 the kingH4428 shall be his friend.H7453
The eyesH5869 of the LORDH3068 preserveH5341 knowledge,H1847 and he overthrowsH5557 the wordsH1697 of the transgressor.H898
The slothfulH6102 man said,H559 There is a lionH738 without,H2351 I shall be slainH7523 in the streets.H7339
The mouthH6310 of strangeH2114 women is a deepH6013 pit:H7745 he that is abhorredH2194 of the LORDH3068 shall fallH5307 therein.H8033
FoolishnessH200 is boundH7194 in the heartH3820 of a child;H5288 but the rodH7626 of correctionH4148 shall drive it farH7368 from him.
He that oppressesH6231 the poorH1800 to increaseH7235 his riches, and he that givesH5414 to the rich,H6223 shall surelyH389 come to want.H4270
BowH5186 downH5186 your ear,H241 and hearH8085 the wordsH1697 of the wise,H2450 and applyH7896 your heartH3820 to my knowledge.H1847
For it is a pleasantH5273 thing ifH3588 you keepH8104 them withinH990 you; they shall withH3162 be fittedH3559 in your lips.H8193
That your trustH4009 may be in the LORD,H3068 I have made knownH3045 to you this day,H3117 evenH637 to you.
Have not I writtenH3789 to you excellentH7991 things in counselsH4156 and knowledge,H1847
That I might make you knowH3045 the certaintyH7189 of the wordsH561 of truth;H571 that you might answerH7725 the wordsH561 of truthH571 to them that sendH7971 to you?
RobH1497 not the poor,H1800 becauseH3588 he is poor:H1800 neitherH3808 oppressH1792 the afflictedH6041 in the gate:H8179
For the LORDH3068 will pleadH7378 their cause,H7379 and spoilH6906 the soulH5315 of those that spoiledH6906 them.
Make noH408 friendshipH7462 with an angryH639 man;H1167 and with a furiousH2534 manH376 you shall not go:H935
LestH6435 you learnH502 his ways,H734 and getH3947 a snareH4170 to your soul.H5315
Be not you one of them that strikeH8628 hands,H3709 or of them that are suretiesH6148 for debts.H4859
IfH518 you have nothingH369 to pay,H7999 whyH4100 should he takeH3947 away your bedH4904 from underH8478 you?
RemoveH5253 not the ancientH5769 landmark,H1366 whichH834 your fathersH1 have set.H6213
SeeH2372 you a manH376 diligentH4106 in his business?H4399 he shall standH3320 beforeH6440 kings;H4428 he shall not standH3320 beforeH6440 meanH2823 men.
