Proverbs 20:1-6

JPS_ASV_Byz(i) 1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is riotous; and whosoever reeleth thereby is not wise. 2 The terror of a king is as the roaring of a lion: he that provoketh him to anger forfeiteth his life. 3 It is an honour for a man to keep aloof from strife; but every fool will be snarling. 4 The sluggard will not plow when winter setteth in; therefore he shall beg in harvest, and have nothing. 5 Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it out. 6 Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness; but a faithful man who can find?
