1 G3592 Thus G3004 speaks G3588 the G435 man G3588 to the G4100 ones trusting G2316 in God. G2532 And now G3973 I will cease.
2 G878 [4most foolish G1063 1For G1510.2.1 2I am G537 3all together] G444 of men, G2532 and G5428 the intelligence G444 of man G3756 is not G1510.2.3 G1722 in G1473 me.
3 G3588 G2316 God G1321 has taught G1473 me G4678 wisdom, G2532 and G1108 [2 the knowledge G39 3of the holies G1097 1I know].
4 G5100 Who G305 ascended G1519 into G3588 the G3772 heaven, G2532 and G2597 came down? G5100 Who G4863 brought together G417 the winds G1722 in G2859 his bosom? G5100 Who G4962 bundled up G5204 waters G1722 in G2440 his cloak? G5100 Who G2902 holds G3956 all G3588 the G206.1 extremities G3588 of the G1093 earth? G5100 What G3686 name G1473 is given to him? G2228 or G5100 what G3686 name G3588 to G5043 his children G1473 G2443 that G1097 you should know?
5 G3956 For all G1063 G3056 the words G2316 of God G4448 are purified. G5231.3 [3shields G1161 1And G1473 2he himself] G3588 the ones G2125 venerating G1473 him.
6 G3361 You should not G4369 add G3588 to G3056 his words, G1473 G2443 lest G3361 G1651 he reprove G1473 you, G2532 and G5571 [2a liar G1096 1you should become].
7 G1417 Two things G154 I ask G3844 from G1473 you; G3361 you should not G851 remove G1473 [2from me G5484 1favor] G4253 before G3588 G599 my dying; G1473

9 G2443 that G3361 [2not G4130 5in being filled up G5571 4false G1096 1I should 3become], G2532 and G2036 should say, G5100 Who G1473 sees me? G3708 G2228 Or G3998.1 to be in need G2813 that I shall steal, G2532 and G3660 I shall swear an oath by G3588 the G3686 name G3588 G2316 of God.
10 G3361 You should not G3860 deliver G1401 a bondservant G1519 into G5495 the hands G1203 of a master, G3379 lest at any time G2672 he should curse G1473 you, G2532 and G853 you should be obliterated.

16 G86 Hades, G2532 and G2064.2 passion G1135 of a woman, G2532 and G1093 earth G3756 not G1705 filled G5204 with water; G2532 and G5204 water G2532 and G4442 fire G3766.2 in no way G2036 shall say, G714 It sufficies.
17 G3788 The eye G2606 ridiculing G3962 a father, G2532 and G818 dishonoring G1094 the old age G3384 of a mother -- G1581 [5cut it out G1473 G2876 1let the crows G1537 2from G3588 3the G5327 4ravines], G2532 and G2719 may [3devour G1473 4it G3502 1 the young G105 2of the eagles].
18 G5140 [3three things G1161 1And G1510.2.3 2there are] G102 impossible G1473 for me G3539 to comprehend, G2532 and G3588 the G5067 fourth G3756 I do not G1921 know --
19 G2487 the traces G105 [2eagle G4072 1of a flying], G2532 and G3598 the ways G3789 of a serpent G1909 upon G4073 a rock, G2532 and G5147 the paths G3491 of a ship G4194.1 passing through the sea, G2532 and G3598 the ways G435 of a man G1722 in G3503 youth.
20 G5108 Such is the G3598 way G1135 [2woman G3428 1of an adulterous], G3588 G3752 whenever G4238 she should act G633 in washing herself, G3762 [2not G5346 1she says] G4238 to have acted G824 out of place.

23 G2532 and G3610.1 a female domestic servant, G1437 if G1544 she is cast out G3588 G1438 by her own G2959 lady, G2532 and G3404.1 a hateful G1135 wife G1437 if G5177 she should attain G435 [2man G18 1a good].

26 G2532 And G3588 the G5518.1 rabbits -- G1484 a nation G3756 not G2478 being strong, G3588 the ones G4160 making G1722 [3in G4073 4 the rocks G3588 G1438 1their own G3624 2houses].

31 G2532 and G220 a rooster G1704 walking about G1722 among G2338 females G2174.1 confidently, G2532 and G5131 a he-goat G2233 taking the lead G137.2 of a flock of goats, G2532 and G935 a king G1215 delivering a public address G1722 to G1484 a nation.
32 G1437 If G4290.2 you should let go G4572 of yourself G1519 in G2167 gladness, G2532 and G1614 should stretch out G3588 G5495 your hand G1473 G3326 for G3163 a fight G818 you shall be dishonored.
