Proverbs 20:1-6

Leeser(i) 1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is noisy; and whosoever indulgeth therein will never be wise. 2 Like the roaring of a young lion is the dread of a king: whoso provoketh him to anger sinneth against his own soul. 3 It is an honor for a man to cease from a contest; but every fool enrageth himself. 4 Because it is winter’s cold, will the sluggard not plough: when he therefore seeketh in the harvest time, there will be nothing. 5 Like deep water is counsel in the heart of man; but the man of understanding will draw it out. 6 Most men will proclaim every one his own kindness; but who can find a faithful man?
