020:018:001
Through desire a man,
having separated himself,
seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.


020:018:002
A fool hath no delight in understanding,
but that his heart may discover itself.


020:018:003
When the wicked cometh,
then cometh also contempt,
and with ignominy reproach.


020:018:004
The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters,
and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.


020:018:005
It is not good to accept the person of the wicked,
to overthrow the righteous in judgment.


020:018:006
A fool's lips enter into contention,
and his mouth calleth for strokes.


020:018:007
A fool's mouth is his destruction,
and his lips are the snare of his soul.


020:018:008
The words of a talebearer are as wounds,
and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.


020:018:009
He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.


020:018:010
The name of the LORD is a strong tower:
the righteous runneth into it,
and is safe.


020:018:011
The rich man's wealth is his strong city,
and as an high wall in his own conceit.


020:018:012
Before destruction the heart of man is haughty,
and before honour is humility.


020:018:013
He that answereth a matter before he heareth it,
it is folly and shame unto him.


020:018:014
The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity;
but a wounded spirit who can bear?


020:018:015
The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge;
and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.


020:018:016
A man's gift maketh room for him,
and bringeth him before great men.


020:018:017
He that is first in his own cause seemeth just;
but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.


020:018:018
The lot causeth contentions to cease,
and parteth between the mighty.


020:018:019
A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city:
and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.


020:018:020
A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth;
and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.


020:018:021
Death and life are in the power of the tongue:
and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.


020:018:022
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing,
and obtaineth favour of the LORD.


020:018:023
The poor useth intreaties;
but the rich answereth roughly.


020:018:024
A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly:
and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
