  5 G2296 To admire G4383 the face G765 of the impious G3756 is not G2570 good; G3761 nor G3741 is it sacred G1578 to turn aside G3588 the G1342 just G1722 in G2920 a judgment.

  8 G3636 The lazy G2598 are thrown down G5401 by fear; G5590 and the souls G1161   G407.1 of effeminate ones G3983 shall hunger.
  9 G3588 The one G3361 not G2390 repairing G1438 himself G1722 by G3588   G2041 his works G1473   G80 is brother G1510.2.3   G3588 of the one G3075 laying himself waste. G1438

  11 G5223 The substance G4145 of a rich G435 man G4172 [2city G3793.1 1is a fortified]; G3588   G1161 and G1391 its glory G1473   G3173 [2greatly G1982 1overshadows].
  12 G4253 Before G4936.1 destruction G5312 [3is raised up high G2588 1 the heart G435 2of a man], G2532 and G4253 before G1391 glory G5013 it is humbled.

  14 G2372 [4 the rage G435 5of a man G4238.2 3calms G2324 2attendant G5429 1An intelligent]; G3642 but a faint hearted G1161   G435 man, G5100 who G5297 can endure.
  15 G2588 The heart G5429 of an intelligent man G2932 acquires G144 perception; G3775 and ears G1161   G4680 of the wise G2212 seek G1771 insight.
  16 G1390 A gift G444 of a man G1706.2 widens G1473 him; G2532 and G3844 [3by G1413 4monarchs G2522.2 1sits G1473 2him].
  17 G1342 A just man, G1438 [2of himself G2725 1 is an accuser] G1722 at G4411.1 the beginning of speaking; G5613 but when G1161   G302 ever G1911 [3demands attention G3588 1the G476 2opponent] G1651 he is reproved.

  20 G575 From G2590 fruits G4750 of the mouth G435 a man G4130 fills G2836 his belly; G1473   G575 and from G1161   G2590 fruits G5491 of his lips G1473   G1705 he shall be filled up.
  21 G2288 Death G2532 and G2222 life G1722 are in G5495 the handle G1100 of the tongue; G3588 and the ones G1161   G2902 holding G1473 it G2068 shall eat G3588   G2590 of its fruits. G1473  
  22 G3739 The one who G2147 found G1135 [2wife G18 1a good], G2147 found G5484 favors; G2983 and he received G1161   G3844 [2from G2962 3 the lord G2432 1happiness]. G3739 The one who G1544 casts out G1135 [2woman G18 1a good], G1544 casts out G3588   G18 good things; G3588 but the one G1161   G2722 holding on to G3428 an adulteress G878 is foolish G2532 and G765 impious.

  24 G435 A man G2083 having friends G4314 is for G2082.3 friendship; G2532 and G1510.2.3 there is G5384 a friend G4347 cleaving to G5228 over G80 a brother.
