1 H4194 Dead H2070 flies H8081 cause the ointment H7543 of the apothecary [H8802] H5042 to send forth [H8686] H887 a stinking savour [H8686] H4592 : so doth a little H5531 folly H3368 him that is in reputation H2451 for wisdom H3519 and honour.
2 H2450 A wise man's H3820 heart H3225 is at his right hand H3684 ; but a fool's H3820 heart H8040 at his left.
3 H5530 Yea also, when he that is a fool H1980 walketh [H8802] H1870 by the way H3820 , his wisdom H2638 faileth H559 him, and he saith [H8804] H5530 to every one that he is a fool.
4 H7307 If the spirit H4910 of the ruler [H8802] H5927 rise up [H8799] H3240 against thee, leave [H8686] H4725 not thy place H4832 ; for yielding H3240 pacifieth [H8686] H1419 great H2399 offences.
5 H3426 There is H7451 an evil H7200 which I have seen [H8804] H8121 under the sun H7684 , as an error H3318 which proceedeth [H8802] H6440 from H7989 the ruler:
6 H5529 Folly H5414 is set [H8738] H7227 in great H4791 dignity H6223 , and the rich H3427 sit [H8799] H8216 in low place.
7 H7200 I have seen [H8804] H5650 servants H5483 upon horses H8269 , and princes H1980 walking [H8802] H5650 as servants H776 upon the earth.
8 H2658 He that diggeth [H8802] H1475 a pit H5307 shall fall [H8799] H6555 into it; and whoso breaketh [H8802] H1447 an hedge H5175 , a serpent H5391 shall bite [H8799] him.
9 H5265 Whoso removeth [H8688] H68 stones H6087 shall be hurt [H8735] H1234 therewith; and he that cleaveth [H8802] H6086 wood H5533 shall be endangered [H8735] thereby.
10 H1270 If the iron H6949 be blunt [H8765] H7043 , and he do not whet [H8773] H6440 the edge H1396 , then must he put [H8762] H2428 to more strength H2451 : but wisdom H3504 is profitable H3787 to direct [H8687] .
11 H5175 Surely the serpent H5391 will bite [H8799] H3908 without enchantment H3956 ; and a babbler H1167 H3504 is no better.
12 H1697 The words H2450 of a wise man's H6310 mouth H2580 are gracious H8193 ; but the lips H3684 of a fool H1104 will swallow up [H8762] himself.
13 H8462 The beginning H1697 of the words H6310 of his mouth H5531 is foolishness H319 : and the end H6310 of his talk H7451 is mischievous H1948 madness.
14 H5530 A fool H7235 also is full [H8686] H1697 of words H120 : a man H3045 cannot tell [H8799] H310 what shall be; and what shall be after H5046 him, who can tell [H8686] him?
15 H5999 The labour H3684 of the foolish H3021 wearieth [H8762] H3045 every one of them, because he knoweth [H8804] H3212 not how to go [H8800] H5892 to the city.
16 H337 Woe H776 to thee, O land H4428 , when thy king H5288 is a child H8269 , and thy princes H398 eat [H8799] H1242 in the morning!
17 H835 Blessed H776 art thou, O land H4428 , when thy king H1121 is the son H2715 of nobles H8269 , and thy princes H398 eat [H8799] H6256 in due season H1369 , for strength H8358 , and not for drunkenness!
18 H6103 By much slothfulness H4746 the building H4355 decayeth [H8735] H8220 ; and through idleness H3027 of the hands H1004 the house H1811 droppeth through [H8799] .
19 H3899 A feast H6213 is made [H8802] H7814 for laughter H3196 , and wine H8055 maketh merry [H8762] H2416 H3701 : but money H6030 answereth [H8799] all things .
20 H7043 Curse [H8762] H4428 not the king H4093 , no not in thy thought H7043 ; and curse [H8762] H6223 not the rich H2315 in thy bedchamber H4904 H5775 : for a bird H8064 of the air H3212 shall carry [H8686] H6963 the voice H1167 , and that which hath H3671 wings H5046 shall tell [H8686] H1697 the matter.
