1 H4633 The preparations H3820 of the heart H120 in man, H4617 and the answer H3956 of the tongue, H3068 is from the LORD.
2 H3605 All H1870 the ways H376 of a man H2134 are clean H5869 in his own eyes; H3068 but the LORD H8505 weighs H7307 the spirits.
3 H1556 Commit H4639 your works H3068 to the LORD, H4284 and your thoughts H3559 shall be established.
4 H3068 The LORD H6466 has made H3605 all H4617 things for himself: H1571 yes, H1571 even H7563 the wicked H3117 for the day H7451 of evil.
5 H3605 Every H1362 one that is proud H3820 in heart H8441 is an abomination H3068 to the LORD: H3027 though hand H3027 join in hand, H5352 he shall not be unpunished.
6 H2617 By mercy H571 and truth H5771 iniquity H3722 is purged: H3374 and by the fear H3068 of the LORD H5493 men depart H7451 from evil.
7 H376 When a man’s H1870 ways H7521 please H3068 the LORD, H1571 he makes even H341 his enemies H7999 to be at peace with him.
8 H2896 Better H4592 is a little H6666 with righteousness H7230 than great H8393 revenues H3808 without H4941 right.
9 H120 A man’s H3820 heart H2803 devises H1870 his way: H3068 but the LORD H3559 directs H6806 his steps.
10 H7081 A divine H7081 sentence H8193 is in the lips H4428 of the king: H6310 his mouth H4603 transgresses H4941 not in judgment.
11 H4941 A just H6425 weight H3976 and balance H3068 are the LORD’s: H3605 all H68 the weights H3599 of the bag H4639 are his work.
12 H8441 It is an abomination H4428 to kings H6213 to commit H7562 wickedness: H3678 for the throne H3559 is established H6666 by righteousness.
13 H6664 Righteous H8193 lips H7522 are the delight H4428 of kings; H157 and they love H1696 him that speaks H3477 right.
14 H2534 The wrath H4428 of a king H4397 is as messengers H4194 of death: H2450 but a wise H376 man H3722 will pacify it.
15 H216 In the light H4428 of the king’s H6440 countenance H2416 is life; H7522 and his favor H5645 is as a cloud H4456 of the latter H4456 rain.
16 H4100 How H2896 much better H7069 is it to get H2451 wisdom H2742 than gold! H7069 and to get H998 understanding H977 rather to be chosen H3701 than silver!
17 H4546 The highway H3477 of the upright H5493 is to depart H7451 from evil: H5341 he that keeps H1870 his way H8104 preserves H5315 his soul.
18 H1347 Pride H6440 goes before H7667 destruction, H1363 and an haughty H7307 spirit H6440 before H3783 a fall.
19 H2896 Better H8213 it is to be of an humble H7307 spirit H6041 with the lowly, H4480 than H2505 to divide H7998 the spoil H1343 with the proud.
20 H5921 He that handles H1697 a matter H7919 wisely H4672 shall find H2896 good: H982 and whoever trusts H3068 in the LORD, H835 happy is he.
21 H2450 The wise H3820 in heart H7121 shall be called H995 prudent: H4986 and the sweetness H8193 of the lips H3254 increases H3948 learning.
22 H7922 Understanding H4726 is a wellspring H2416 of life H1167 to him that has H4148 it: but the instruction H191 of fools H200 is folly.
23 H3820 The heart H2450 of the wise H7919 teaches H6310 his mouth, H3254 and adds H3948 learning H8193 to his lips.
24 H5278 Pleasant H561 words H6688 are as an honeycomb, H1706 H4966 sweet H5315 to the soul, H4832 and health H6106 to the bones.
25 H1870 There is a way H6440 that seems H3477 right H376 to a man, H319 but the end H1870 thereof are the ways H4194 of death.
27 H1100 An ungodly H376 man H3738 digs H7451 up evil: H8193 and in his lips H6867 there is as a burning H784 fire.
28 H8419 A fraudulent H376 man H7971 sows H4066 strife: H5372 and a whisperer H6504 separates H441 chief H441 friends.
29 H2555 A violent H376 man H6601 entices H7453 his neighbor, H3212 and leads H1870 him into the way H2896 that is not good.
30 H6095 He shuts H5869 his eyes H2803 to devise H8419 fraudulent H7169 things: moving H8193 his lips H3615 he brings H7451 evil H3615 to pass.
31 H7872 The hoary H5850 head is a crown H8597 of glory, H4672 if it be found H1870 in the way H6666 of righteousness.
32 H750 He that is slow H639 to anger H2896 is better H4480 than H1368 the mighty; H4910 and he that rules H7307 his spirit H3920 than he that takes H5892 a city.
