020:010:001
The proverbs of Solomon.
A wise son maketh a glad father:
but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother.


020:010:002
Treasures of wickedness profit nothing:
but righteousness delivereth from death.


020:010:003
The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish:
but he casteth away the substance of the wicked.


020:010:004
He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand:
but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.


020:010:005
He that gathereth in summer is a wise son:
but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.


020:010:006
Blessings are upon the head of the just:
but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.


020:010:007
The memory of the just is blessed:
but the name of the wicked shall rot.


020:010:008
The wise in heart will receive commandments:
but a prating fool shall fall.


020:010:009
He that walketh uprightly walketh surely:
but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.


020:010:010
He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow:
but a prating fool shall fall.


020:010:011
The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life:
but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.


020:010:012
Hatred stirreth up strifes:
but love covereth all sins.


020:010:013
In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found:
but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.


020:010:014
Wise men lay up knowledge:
but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.


020:010:015
The rich man's wealth is his strong city:
the destruction of the poor is their poverty.


020:010:016
The labour of the righteous tendeth to life:
the fruit of the wicked to sin.


020:010:017
He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction:
but he that refuseth reproof erreth.


020:010:018
He that hideth hatred with lying lips,
and he that uttereth a slander,
is a fool.


020:010:019
In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin:
but he that refraineth his lips is wise.


020:010:020
The tongue of the just is as choice silver:
the heart of the wicked is little worth.


020:010:021
The lips of the righteous feed many:
but fools die for want of wisdom.


020:010:022
The blessing of the LORD,
it maketh rich,
and he addeth no sorrow with it.


020:010:023
It is as sport to a fool to do mischief:
but a man of understanding hath wisdom.


020:010:024
The fear of the wicked,
it shall come upon him:
but the desire of the righteous shall be granted.


020:010:025
As the whirlwind passeth,
so is the wicked no more:
but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.


020:010:026
As vinegar to the teeth,
and as smoke to the eyes,
so is the sluggard to them that send him.


020:010:027
The fear of the LORD prolongeth days:
but the years of the wicked shall be shortened.


020:010:028
The hope of the righteous shall be gladness:
but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.


020:010:029
The way of the LORD is strength to the upright:
but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.


020:010:030
The righteous shall never be removed:
but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.


020:010:031
The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom:
but the froward tongue shall be cut out.


020:010:032
The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable:
but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness.
