1 G2908 Better G1510.2.3 is G4434 one poor G4198 going G1722 in G572 his simplicity, G1473 G2228 than G4760.1 one crooked G3588 G5491 of his lips, G1473 G2532 and G1473 he G453 is unthinking.
2 G2532 And G1065 even G5565 [2without G1989.1 3higher knowledge G5590 1a soul] G3756 is not G18 good; G2532 and G3588 the one G4692 hastening G3588 with the G4228 feet G264 sins.
3 G877 The folly G435 of a man G3075 lays waste G3588 G3598 his ways; G1473 G3588 G1161 and G2316 [2God G157.1 1he blames] G3588 in his heart. G2588 G1473
4 G4149 Riches G4369 add G5384 [2friends G4183 1many]; G3588 but the G1161 G4434 poor one G2532 [2even G575 3by G3588 4the G5224 6that exists G5384 5friend G3007 1 is forsaken].
5 G3144 [2witness G5571 1A lying G3756 4not G821.1 6unpunished G1510.8.3 3shall 5be]; G3588 and the G1161 G1458 one accusing G95 unjustly G3756 shall not G1309 escape.
6 G4183 Many G2323 attend to G4383 the persons G935 of a king; G3956 but every G1161 G3588 G2556 evil man G1096 becomes G3681 scorn G435 to men.
7 G3956 Every one G3739 who G80 [3brother G4434 2a poor G3404 1detests] G2532 [2also G5373 5 from friendship G3112 4far G1510.8.3 1will 3be]. G1771 [2insight G18 1Good G3588 4to the ones G1492 5perceiving G1473 6it G1448 3approaches]; G435 [3man G1161 1and G5429 2an intelligent] G2147 will find G1473 it. G3588 The G4183 many G2554 doing evil G5051.1 perfect a work G2549 of evil; G3739 and the one who G1161 G2042 aggravates G3056 by words G3756 shall not G4982 be delivered.
8 G3588 The one G2932 acquiring G5428 intelligence G25 loves G1438 himself; G3739 and the one G1161 G5442 guarding G5428 intelligence G2147 shall find G18 good.
9 G3144 [2witness G5571 1A lying G3756 4not G821.1 6unpunished G1510.8.3 3shall 5be]; G3739 and who G1161 G302 ever G1572 shall kindle G2549 evil G622 shall perish G5259 by G1473 it.
10 G3756 [2is not G4851 3advantageous G878 4to a fool G5172 1Luxury], G2532 nor is it seemly G1437 if G3610 a servant G756 should begin G3326 [2by G5196 3insult G1412.2 1to be in power].
11 G1655 A merciful G435 man G3114 is lenient, G3588 G1161 and G2745 his boasting G1473 G1904 comes upon G3892.1 lawbreakers.
12 G935 [2of a king G547 1 The intimidation] G3664 is likened to G1030 [2gnashing G3023 1a lion's]; G5618 but as G1161 G1408.1 dew G1909 upon G5528 the grass G3779 so is G3588 G2431 his making one happy. G1473
13 G152 [3 is shame G3962 4to a father G5207 2son G878 1A foolish]; G2532 and G3756 [5 are not G53 6pure G2171 1vows paid out G575 2from G3410 3 the hire G2082.2 4of a mistress].
14 G3624 A house G2532 and G5223 substance G3307 is portioned G3962 by fathers G3816 to children; G3844 but by G1161 G2962 the lord G718 [2is accorded G1135 1a wife] G435 to a man.
15 G1167 Dread G2722 holds down G407.1 an effeminate man; G5590 and the soul G1161 G104.2 of the idle G3983 hungers.
16 G3739 The one who G5442 keeps G1785 the commandment G5083 gives heed to G3588 G1438 his own G5590 soul; G3588 but the one G1161 G2706 disdaining G3588 G1438 his own G3598 ways G622 shall perish.
17 G1155 [4lends G2316 5to God G3588 1The one G1653 2showing mercy G4434 3on the poor]; G2596 and according to G1161 G3588 G1390 his gift G1473 G467 he shall make recompense G1473 to him.
18 G3811 Correct G5207 your son! G1473 G3779 for thus G1063 G1510.8.3 he will be G2107.3 confident; G1519 [6to G1161 1but G5196 7insult G3361 2do not G1869 3lift up G3588 4the G5590 5soul]!
19 G2558.2 An evil-minded G435 man G4183 [2much G2210 1shall be penalized]; G1437 and if G1161 G3060.1 there should be injury, G2532 [2even G3588 G5590 3his life G1473 G4369 1he shall add].
20 G191 Hear, G5207 O son, G3809 the instruction G3962 of your father! G1473 G2443 that G4680 [2wise G1096 1you should become] G1909 unto G2078 your last days . G1473
21 G4183 Many G3053 devices G1722 are in G2588 the heart G435 of a man; G3588 but the G1161 G1012 counsel G3588 of the G2962 lord G1519 [2into G3588 3the G165 4eon G3306 1abides].
22 G2590 [2 is a fruit G435 3to a man G1654 1Charity]; G2908 but better G1161 G4434 a poor G1342 just man, G2228 than G4145 a rich G5583 liar.
23 G5401 Fear G2962 of the lord G1519 is life to G2222 G435 a man; G3588 but the one G1161 G869.2 without fear G835 shall lodge G1722 in G5117 places G3739 where G3756 [2is not G1983 3overseen G1108 1knowledge].
24 G3588 The man G1470 hiding G1519 [4in G3588 G2859 5 his enfolded arm G1473 1his G5495 3hands G95 2unjust], G3761 not even G3588 G4750 [4to his mouth G3766.2 1 will he in any way G4317 2bring G1473 3them].
25 G3061 [3of his mischievousness G3146 2being whipped G878 1A fool G3835 5more clever G1510.8.3 4will be]; G1437 but if G1161 G1651 you should reprove G435 [2man G5429 1an intelligent] G3539 he shall comprehend G144 for good sense.
26 G3588 The one G818 dishonoring G3962 his father, G2532 and G683 thrusting away G3384 his mother, G1473 G2617 [2disgraced G2532 3and G2027.1 4reviled G1510.8.3 1he will be].
27 G5207 A son G620 ceasing G5442 to guard G3809 the instruction G3962 of a father G3191 shall meditate upon G4488.1 [2sayings G2556 1evil].
28 G3588 The one G1449.1 guaranteeing a loan G3816 [2child G878 1of a foolish] G2530.1 insults G1345 the ordinance; G4750 and the mouth G1161 G765 of the impious G2666 shall swallow down G2920 judgments.
