020:019:001
Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity,
than he that is perverse in his lips,
and is a fool.


020:019:002
Also,
that the soul be without knowledge,
it is not good;
and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.


020:019:003
The foolishness of man perverteth his way:
and his heart fretteth against the LORD.


020:019:004
Wealth maketh many friends;
but the poor is separated from his neighbour.


020:019:005
A false witness shall not be unpunished,
and he that speaketh lies shall not escape.


020:019:006
Many will intreat the favour of the prince:
and every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts.


020:019:007
All the brethren of the poor do hate him:
how much more do his friends go far from him?
he pursueth them with words,
yet they are wanting to him.


020:019:008
He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul:
he that keepeth understanding shall find good.


020:019:009
A false witness shall not be unpunished,
and he that speaketh lies shall perish.


020:019:010
Delight is not seemly for a fool;
much less for a servant to have rule over princes.


020:019:011
The discretion of a man deferreth his anger;
and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.


020:019:012
The king's wrath is as the roaring of a lion;
but his favour is as dew upon the grass.


020:019:013
A foolish son is the calamity of his father:
and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.


020:019:014
House and riches are the inheritance of fathers:
and a prudent wife is from the LORD.


020:019:015
Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep;
and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.


020:019:016
He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul;
but he that despiseth his ways shall die.


020:019:017
He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD;
and that which he hath given will he pay him again.


020:019:018
Chasten thy son while there is hope,
and let not thy soul spare for his crying.


020:019:019
A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment:
for if thou deliver him,
yet thou must do it again.


020:019:020
Hear counsel,
and receive instruction,
that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.


020:019:021
There are many devices in a man's heart;
nevertheless the counsel of the LORD,
that shall stand.


020:019:022
The desire of a man is his kindness:
and a poor man is better than a liar.


020:019:023
The fear of the LORD tendeth to life:
and he that hath it shall abide satisfied;
he shall not be visited with evil.


020:019:024
A slothful man hideth his hand in his bosom,
and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.


020:019:025
Smite a scorner,
and the simple will beware:
and reprove one that hath understanding,
and he will understand knowledge.


020:019:026
He that wasteth his father,
and chaseth away his mother,
is a son that causeth shame,
and bringeth reproach.


020:019:027
Cease,
my son,
to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.


020:019:028
An ungodly witness scorneth judgment:
and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity.


020:019:029
Judgments are prepared for scorners,
and stripes for the back of fools.
