Proverbs 20:1-6

NSB(i) 1 Wine is a mocker! Strong drink leads to brawls. He who is intoxicated by it is not wise. 2 Fear of a king is like the roar of a lion. Provoke him to anger and sin against yourself. 3 It is an honor for a man to cease from discord. Only fools start quarrels. 4 The lazy man will not plow because of the cold. He will beg during harvest and have nothing. 5 Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water and a man of understanding will draw it out. 6 Most men proclaim their own loyalty; but who can find a trustworthy man?
