020:017:001
Better is a dry morsel,
and quietness therewith,
than an house full of sacrifices with strife.


020:017:002
A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causeth shame,
and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren.


020:017:003
The fining pot is for silver,
and the furnace for gold:
but the LORD trieth the hearts.


020:017:004
A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips;
and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.


020:017:005
Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker:
and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.


020:017:006
Children's children are the crown of old men;
and the glory of children are their fathers.


020:017:007
Excellent speech becometh not a fool:
much less do lying lips a prince.


020:017:008
A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it:
whithersoever it turneth,
it prospereth.


020:017:009
He that covereth a transgression seeketh love;
but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.


020:017:010
A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.


020:017:011
An evil man seeketh only rebellion:
therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.


020:017:012
Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man,
rather than a fool in his folly.


020:017:013
Whoso rewardeth evil for good,
evil shall not depart from his house.


020:017:014
The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water:
therefore leave off contention,
before it be meddled with.


020:017:015
He that justifieth the wicked,
and he that condemneth the just,
even they both are abomination to the LORD.


020:017:016
Wherefore is there a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom,
seeing he hath no heart to it?


020:017:017
A friend loveth at all times,
and a brother is born for adversity.


020:017:018
A man void of understanding striketh hands,
and becometh surety in the presence of his friend.


020:017:019
He loveth transgression that loveth strife:
and he that exalteth his gate seeketh destruction.


020:017:020
He that hath a froward heart findeth no good:
and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief.


020:017:021
He that begetteth a fool doeth it to his sorrow:
and the father of a fool hath no joy.


020:017:022
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine:
but a broken spirit drieth the bones.


020:017:023
A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.


020:017:024
Wisdom is before him that hath understanding;
but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.


020:017:025
A foolish son is a grief to his father,
and bitterness to her that bare him.


020:017:026
Also to punish the just is not good,
nor to strike princes for equity.


020:017:027
He that hath knowledge spareth his words:
and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.


020:017:028
Even a fool,
when he holdeth his peace,
is counted wise:
and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.
