MKJV(i) 1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging, and whoever goes astray by it is not wise. 2 The fear of a king is as the roaring of a lion; whoever stirs him up to anger sins against his own soul. 3 It is an honor for a man to cease from strife, but every fool exposes himself. 4 The lazy one will not plow; after the autumn he shall beg in harvest and have nothing. 5 Wisdom in the heart of man is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out. 6 Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, but a faithful man who can find?
