Proverbs 12

  1 H157 [H8802] Whoever loveth H4148 instruction H157 [H8802] loveth H1847 knowledge H8130 [H8802] : but he that hateth H8433 reproof H1198 is stupid.
  2 H2896 A good H6329 [H8686] man obtaineth H7522 favour H3068 from the LORD H376 : but a man H4209 of wicked devices H7561 [H8686] he will condemn.
  3 H120 A man H3559 [H8735] shall not be established H7562 by wickedness H8328 : but the root H6662 of the righteous H4131 [H8735] shall not be moved.
  4 H2428 A virtuous H802 woman H5850 is a crown H1167 to her husband H954 [H8688] : but she that maketh ashamed H7538 is as rottenness H6106 in his bones.
  5 H4284 The thoughts H6662 of the righteous H4941 are right H8458 : but the counsels H7563 of the wicked H4820 are deceit.
  6 H1697 The words H7563 of the wicked H693 [H8800] are to lie in wait H1818 for blood H6310 : but the mouth H3477 of the upright H5337 [H8686] shall deliver them.
  7 H7563 The wicked H2015 [H8800] are overthrown H1004 , and are not: but the house H6662 of the righteous H5975 [H8799] shall stand.
  8 H376 A man H1984 [H8792] shall be commended H6310 according H7922 to his wisdom H5753 [H8737] : but he that is of a perverse H3820 heart H937 shall be despised.
  9 H7034 [H8737] He that is despised H5650 , and hath a servant H2896 , is better H3513 [H8693] than he that honoureth H2638 himself, and is destitute H3899 of bread.
  10 H6662 A righteous H3045 [H8802] man regardeth H5315 the life H929 of his beast H7356 : but the tender mercies H7563 of the wicked H394 are cruel.
  11 H5647 [H8802] He that tilleth H127 his land H7646 [H8799] shall be satisfied H3899 with bread H7291 [H8764] : but he that followeth H7386 vain H2638 persons is void H3820 of understanding.
  12 H7563 The wicked H2530 [H8804] desireth H4685 the net H7451 of evil H8328 men: but the root H6662 of the righteous H5414 [H8799] yieldeth fruit.
  13 H7451 The wicked H4170 is snared H6588 by the transgression H8193 of his lips H6662 : but the just H3318 [H8799] shall come out H6869 of trouble.
  14 H376 A man H7646 [H8799] shall be satisfied H2896 with good H6529 by the fruit H6310 of his mouth H1576 : and the recompence H120 of a man's H3027 hands H7725 H7725 [H8686] shall be rendered to him.
  15 H1870 The way H191 of a fool H3477 is right H5869 in his own eyes H8085 [H8802] : but he that hearkeneth H6098 to counsel H2450 is wise.
  16 H191 A fool's H3708 wrath H3117 is presently H3045 [H8735] known H6175 : but a prudent H3680 [H8802] man covereth H7036 shame.
  17 H6315 [H8686] He that speaketh H530 truth H5046 [H8686] showeth forth H6664 righteousness H8267 : but a false H5707 witness H4820 deceit.
  18 H3426 There is H981 [H8802] that speaketh H4094 like the piercings H2719 of a sword H3956 : but the tongue H2450 of the wise H4832 is health.
  19 H8193 The lip H571 of truth H3559 [H8735] shall be established H5703 for ever H8267 : but a lying H3956 tongue H7280 [H8686] is but for a moment.
  20 H4820 Deceit H3820 is in the heart H2790 [H8802] of them that imagine H7451 evil H3289 [H8802] : but to the counsellors H7965 of peace H8057 is joy.
  21 H205 There shall no evil H579 [H8792] happen H6662 to the just H7563 : but the wicked H4390 [H8804] shall be filled H7451 with mischief.
  22 H8267 Lying H8193 lips H8441 are abomination H3068 to the LORD H6213 [H8802] : but they that deal H530 truly H7522 are his delight.
  23 H6175 A prudent H120 man H3680 [H8802] concealeth H1847 knowledge H3820 : but the heart H3684 of fools H7121 [H8799] proclaimeth H200 foolishness.
  24 H3027 The hand H2742 of the diligent H4910 [H8799] shall bear rule H7423 : but the slothful H4522 shall be put to forced labour.
  25 H1674 Heaviness H3820 in the heart H376 of man H7812 [H8686] weigheth it down H2896 : but a good H1697 word H8055 [H8762] maketh it glad.
  26 H6662 The righteous H8446 [H8686] is more excellent H7453 than his neighbour H1870 : but the way H7563 of the wicked H8582 [H8686] seduceth them.
  27 H7423 The slothful H2760 [H8799] man roasteth H6718 not that which he took in hunting H1952 : but the substance H2742 of a diligent H120 man H3368 is precious.
  28 H734 In the way H6666 of righteousness H2416 is life H5410 H1870 ; and in the pathway H4194 of it there is no death.
