Proverbs 20:1-6

Thomson(i) 1 Wine is intemperate, and drunkenness scornful. And with these every fool is entangled. 2 The threat of a king is like the rage of a lion; and he who provoketh him sinneth against his own life. 3 It is an honour to a man to abstain from railing; but with such things every fool is entangled. 4 Though a sluggard is reproached he is not ashamed: and the same is the case with him who borroweth corn in harvest. 5 Counsel in the heart of a man is deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it up. 6 A man is a great thing: and a merciful man a precious thing: but it is hard to find a faithful man.
