Proverbs 20:1-6

EJ2000(i) 1 ¶ Wine makes a mocker, and beer a reveler, and whoever errs concerning them shall never be wise. 2 ¶ The fear of the king is as the roaring of a lion; whoever provokes him to anger sins against his own soul. 3It is an honour for a man to cease from strife, but every fool will be meddling. 4 ¶ The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore he shall beg in harvest and have nothing. 5 ¶ Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water, but a man of intelligence will draw it out. 6 ¶ Most men will proclaim each one his own mercy, but who can find a man of truth?
