1 G2588 Let the heart G435 of a man G3049 consider G1342 just things, G2443 that G5259 [3by G3588 G2316 4God G1356.2 2should set right G3588 G1226.1 1his footsteps]. G1473 G3956 All G3588 the G2041 works G3588 of the G5011 humble G5318 are apparent G3844 by G3588 G2316 God; G3588 but the G1161 G765 impious G1722 [2in G2250 4day G2556 3an evil G3643.4 1shall be destroyed].
5 G169 [3 is unclean G3844 4with G2316 5God G3956 1Every G5307.3 2proud heart]; G5495 [3a hand G1161 1and G5495 4 against hands G1685 2a man putting] G95 unjustly G3756 shall not G121.1 be acquitted. G746 The beginning G3598 [2way G18 1of a good] G3588 G4160 is to do G3588 G1342 just things; G1184 and it is more acceptable G1161 G3844 by G2316 God G3123 rather G2228 than G2380 to sacrifice G2378 sacrifices. G3588 The one G2212 seeking G3588 the G2962 lord G2147 shall find G1108 knowledge G3326 with G1343 righteousness; G3588 and the ones G1161 G3723 rightly G2212 seeking G1473 him G2147 shall find G1515 peace. G3956 All G3588 the G2041 works G3588 of the G2962 lord G3326 are with G1343 righteousness; G5442 [4is kept G1161 1and G3588 2the G765 3impious] G1519 for G2250 [2day G2556 1 the evil].
10 G3131.2 An oracle G1909 is upon G5491 the lips G935 of a king; G1722 but in G1161 G2920 judgment, G3766.2 in no way G4105 should [2be misled G3588 G4750 1his mouth]. G1473
11 G4501.2 The crux G2218 of the yoke balance scale G1343 is righteousness G3844 with G2316 God; G3588 G1161 and G2041 [2works G1473 1his G4712.3 4weights G1342 3 are just].
12 G946 [4 is an abomination G935 5to a king G3588 1The one G4160 2doing G2556 3evils]; G3326 for with G1063 G1343 righteousness G2090 [3is prepared G2362 1 the throne G746 2of sovereignty].
13 G1184 [3 are acceptable G935 4to the king G5491 2lips G1342 1Just]; G3056 [6words G1161 1and G3717 5straight G25 4loves G3588 2the G2962 3 lord].
14 G2372 The rage G935 of a king G32 is a messenger G2288 of death; G435 [3man G1161 1but G4680 2a wise] G1837.2 will appease G1473 him.
15 G1722 [3 is in G5457 4 the light G2222 5of life G5207 1 The son G935 2of a king]; G3588 and the ones G1161 G4325.6 acceptable G1473 to him G5618 are as G3509 a cloud G3797 of late rain .
16 G3555 Nests G4678 of wisdom G141.1 are more preferred G5553 than gold; G3555 and nests G1161 G5428 of intelligence G141.1 more preferred G5228 than G694 silver.
17 G5147 The paths G2222 of life G1578 turn aside G575 from G2556 evils; G3372 [4 are length G1161 1and G979 5of existence G3598 2 the ways G1343 3of righteousness]. G3588 The one G1209 receiving G3809 instruction G1722 [2among G18 3good things G1510.8.3 1will be]; G3588 and the G1161 G5442 one keeping G1650 reproofs G4679 shall be made wise. G3739 The one who G5442 guards G3588 G1438 his own G3598 ways G5083 gives heed to G3588 G1438 his own G5590 soul; G25 and the one loving G1161 G2222 his life G1473 G5339 shall spare G4750 his mouth. G1473
18 G4253 [3before G4936.1 4destruction G2233 2takes the lead G5196 1Insolence]; G4253 and before G1161 G4430 a calamitous downfall G2558.1 evil thinking.
19 G2908 Better G4238.1 a gentle-minded one G3326 with G5014 a low estate, G2228 than G3739 one who G1244 divides G4661 spoils G3326 with G5197 the arrogant.
20 G4908 The one discerning G1722 in G4229 matters G2146.3 is an inventor G18 of good things; G3982 and the one yielding G1161 G1909 upon G2316 God G3108.1 is most blessed.
21 G3588 [2the G4680 3wise G2532 4and G4908 5discerning G5337 6vile G2564 1 Men call]; G3588 but the ones G1161 G1099 sweet G1722 in G3056 words G4183 [2much G191 1shall be heard].
22 G4077 The spring G2222 of life G1771 is insight G3588 to the ones G2932 acquiring; G3809 but the instruction G1161 G878 of fools G2556 is evil.
23 G2588 The heart G4680 of the wise G3539 shall comprehend G3588 the things G575 from G3588 G2398 his own G4750 mouth; G1909 and upon G1161 G5491 lips G5409 he shall wear G1921.1 knowledge.
24 G2781 [3 are honeycombs G3192 4of honey G3056 2words G2570 1Good]; G1098.3 and the sweetness G1161 G1473 of them G2392 is healing G5590 for the soul.
25 G1510.2.6 There are G3598 ways G1380 that seem G3717 to be straight G1510.1 G435 to a man, G3588 however the G3305 G5052.2 finalities G1473 of them G991 look G1519 into G4435.1 the lower branch G86 of Hades.
26 G435 A man G1722 in G4192 toils G4188.1 toils G1438 for himself, G2532 and G1545.1 expels G1473 [2from him G3588 G684 1destruction].
27 G3588 However the G3305 G4646 crooked man G1909 [3upon G3588 G1438 4his own G4750 5mouth G5409 1wears G3588 G684 2destruction]. G435 [2man G878 1A foolish] G3736 digs G1438 [2for himself G2556 1evils]; G1909 and upon G1161 G3588 G1438 his own G5491 lips G2343 treasures up G4442 fire.
28 G435 [2man G4646 1A crooked] G1275.4 spreads G2556 evils, G2532 and G2987.1 by the torch G1388 of treachery G4450.1 lights a fire G2556 for evils, G2532 and G1316 he parts G5384 friends.
29 G435 A man G3892.1 who is a lawbreaker G633.4 puts [2to test G5384 1 his friends], G2532 and G520 takes G1473 them G3598 ways G3756 not G18 good.
30 G4741 Fixing firmly G3788 his eyes, G1473 G3049 he devises G1294 perverted things; G3724 and he confirms G1161 G3588 with G5491 his lips G1473 G3956 all G3588 the G2556 evils; G3778 this man G2575 is a furnace G1510.2.3 G2549 of evil.
31 G4735 The crown G2746 of boasting G1094 is old age; G1722 [3in G1161 1and G3598 4 the ways G1343 5of righteousness G2147 2it is found].
32 G2908 Better G435 [2man G3115.1 1a lenient] G2478 than a strong man; G2532 and G435 a man G5428 of intelligence G2192 than one having G1091 [2farm G3173 1a great]; G3588 and the G1161 G2902 one holding G3709 his anger G2908 is better G2638 than one overtaking G4172 a city.
