020:014:001
Every wise woman buildeth her house:
but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.


020:014:002
He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the LORD:
but he that is perverse in his ways despiseth him.


020:014:003
In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride:
but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.


020:014:004
Where no oxen are,
the crib is clean:
but much increase is by the strength of the ox.


020:014:005
A faithful witness will not lie:
but a false witness will utter lies.


020:014:006
A scorner seeketh wisdom,
and findeth it not:
but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth.


020:014:007
Go from the presence of a foolish man,
when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.


020:014:008
The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way:
but the folly of fools is deceit.


020:014:009
Fools make a mock at sin:
but among the righteous there is favour.


020:014:010
The heart knoweth his own bitterness;
and a stranger doth not intermeddle with his joy.


020:014:011
The house of the wicked shall be overthrown:
but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish.


020:014:012
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man,
but the end thereof are the ways of death.


020:014:013
Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful;
and the end of that mirth is heaviness.


020:014:014
The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways:
and a good man shall be satisfied from himself.


020:014:015
The simple believeth every word:
but the prudent man looketh well to his going.


020:014:016
A wise man feareth,
and departeth from evil:
but the fool rageth,
and is confident.


020:014:017
He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly:
and a man of wicked devices is hated.


020:014:018
The simple inherit folly:
but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.


020:014:019
The evil bow before the good;
and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.


020:014:020
The poor is hated even of his own neighbour:
but the rich hath many friends.


020:014:021
He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth:
but he that hath mercy on the poor,
happy is he.


020:014:022
Do they not err that devise evil?
but mercy and truth shall be to them that devise good.


020:014:023
In all labour there is profit:
but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.


020:014:024
The crown of the wise is their riches:
but the foolishness of fools is folly.


020:014:025
A true witness delivereth souls:
but a deceitful witness speaketh lies.


020:014:026
In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence:
and his children shall have a place of refuge.


020:014:027
The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life,
to depart from the snares of death.


020:014:028
In the multitude of people is the king's honour:
but in the want of people is the destruction of the prince.


020:014:029
He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding:
but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.


020:014:030
A sound heart is the life of the flesh:
but envy the rottenness of the bones.


020:014:031
He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker:
but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.


020:014:032
The wicked is driven away in his wickedness:
but the righteous hath hope in his death.


020:014:033
Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding:
but that which is in the midst of fools is made known.


020:014:034
Righteousness exalteth a nation:
but sin is a reproach to any people.


020:014:035
The king's favour is toward a wise servant:
but his wrath is against him that causeth shame.
