020:012:001
Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge:
but he that hateth reproof is brutish.


020:012:002
A good man obtaineth favour of the LORD:
but a man of wicked devices will he condemn.


020:012:003
A man shall not be established by wickedness:
but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.


020:012:004
A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband:
but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.


020:012:005
The thoughts of the righteous are right:
but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.


020:012:006
The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood:
but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.


020:012:007
The wicked are overthrown,
and are not:
but the house of the righteous shall stand.


020:012:008
A man shall be commended according to his wisdom:
but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.


020:012:009
He that is despised,
and hath a servant,
is better than he that honoureth himself,
and lacketh bread.


020:012:010
A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast:
but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.


020:012:011
He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread:
but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.


020:012:012
The wicked desireth the net of evil men:
but the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit.


020:012:013
The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips:
but the just shall come out of trouble.


020:012:014
A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth:
and the recompence of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him.


020:012:015
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes:
but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.


020:012:016
A fool's wrath is presently known:
but a prudent man covereth shame.


020:012:017
He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness:
but a false witness deceit.


020:012:018
There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword:
but the tongue of the wise is health.


020:012:019
The lip of truth shall be established for ever:
but a lying tongue is but for a moment.


020:012:020
Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil:
but to the counsellors of peace is joy.


020:012:021
There shall no evil happen to the just:
but the wicked shall be filled with mischief.


020:012:022
Lying lips are abomination to the LORD:
but they that deal truly are his delight.


020:012:023
A prudent man concealeth knowledge:
but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.


020:012:024
The hand of the diligent shall bear rule:
but the slothful shall be under tribute.


020:012:025
Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop:
but a good word maketh it glad.


020:012:026
The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour:
but the way of the wicked seduceth them.


020:012:027
The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting:
but the substance of a diligent man is precious.


020:012:028
In the way of righteousness is life:
and in the pathway thereof there is no death.
