020:020:001
Wine is a mocker,
strong drink is raging:
and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.


020:020:002
The fear of a king is as the roaring of a lion:
whoso provoketh him to anger sinneth against his own soul.


020:020:003
It is an honour for a man to cease from strife:
but every fool will be meddling.


020:020:004
The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold;
therefore shall he beg in harvest,
and have nothing.


020:020:005
Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water;
but a man of understanding will draw it out.


020:020:006
Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness:
but a faithful man who can find?


020:020:007
The just man walketh in his integrity:
his children are blessed after him.


020:020:008
A king that sitteth in the throne of judgment scattereth away all evil with his eyes.


020:020:009
Who can say,
I have made my heart clean,
I am pure from my sin?


020:020:010
Divers weights,
and divers measures,
both of them are alike abomination to the LORD.


020:020:011
Even a child is known by his doings,
whether his work be pure,
and whether it be right.


020:020:012
The hearing ear,
and the seeing eye,
the LORD hath made even both of them.


020:020:013
Love not sleep,
lest thou come to poverty;
open thine eyes,
and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.


020:020:014
It is naught,
it is naught,
saith the buyer:
but when he is gone his way,
then he boasteth.


020:020:015
There is gold,
and a multitude of rubies:
but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.


020:020:016
Take his garment that is surety for a stranger:
and take a pledge of him for a strange woman.


020:020:017
Bread of deceit is sweet to a man;
but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.


020:020:018
Every purpose is established by counsel:
and with good advice make war.


020:020:019
He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets:
therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.


020:020:020
Whoso curseth his father or his mother,
his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness.


020:020:021
An inheritance may be gotten hastily at the beginning;
but the end thereof shall not be blessed.


020:020:022
Say not thou,
I will recompense evil;
but wait on the LORD,
and he shall save thee.


020:020:023
Divers weights are an abomination unto the LORD;
and a false balance is not good.


020:020:024
Man's goings are of the LORD;
how can a man then understand his own way?


020:020:025
It is a snare to the man who devoureth that which is holy,
and after vows to make enquiry.


020:020:026
A wise king scattereth the wicked,
and bringeth the wheel over them.


020:020:027
The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD,
searching all the inward parts of the belly.


020:020:028
Mercy and truth preserve the king:
and his throne is upholden by mercy.


020:020:029
The glory of young men is their strength:
and the beauty of old men is the grey head.


020:020:030
The blueness of a wound cleanseth away evil:
so do stripes the inward parts of the belly.
