1 H2896 Better H7326 [H8802] is the poor H1980 [H8802] that walketh H8537 in his integrity H6141 , than he that is perverse H8193 in his lips H3684 , and is a fool.
2 H5315 Also, that the soul H1847 be without knowledge H2896 , it is not good H213 [H8801] ; and he that hasteth H7272 with his feet H2398 [H8802] sinneth.
3 H200 The foolishness H120 of man H5557 [H8762] perverteth H1870 his way H3820 : and his heart H2196 [H8799] fretteth H3068 against the LORD.
4 H1952 Wealth H3254 [H8686] maketh H7227 many H7453 friends H1800 ; but the poor H6504 [H8735] is separated H7453 from his neighbour.
5 H8267 A false H5707 witness H5352 [H8735] shall not be unpunished H6315 [H8686] , and he that speaketh H3577 lies H4422 [H8735] shall not escape.
6 H7227 Many H2470 [H8762] will entreat H6440 the favour H5081 of the prince H7453 : and every man is a friend H376 to him H4976 that giveth gifts.
7 H251 All the brethren H7326 [H8802] of the poor H8130 [H8804] do hate H4828 him: how much more do his friends H7368 [H8804] go far H7291 [H8764] from him? he pursueth H561 them with words, yet they are gone.
8 H7069 [H8802] He that getteth H3820 wisdom H157 [H8802] loveth H5315 his own soul H8104 [H8802] : he that keepeth H8394 understanding H4672 [H8800] shall find H2896 good.
9 H8267 A false H5707 witness H5352 [H8735] shall not be unpunished H6315 [H8686] , and he that speaketh H3577 lies H6 [H8799] shall perish.
10 H8588 Delight H5000 is not proper H3684 for a fool H5650 ; much less for a servant H4910 [H8800] to have rule H8269 over princes.
11 H7922 The discretion H120 of a man H748 [H8689] deferreth H639 his anger H8597 ; and it is his glory H5674 [H8800] to pass over H6588 a transgression.
12 H4428 The king's H2197 wrath H5099 is as the roaring H3715 of a lion H7522 ; but his favour H2919 is as dew H6212 upon the grass.
13 H3684 A foolish H1121 son H1942 is the calamity H1 of his father H4079 : and the contentions H802 of a wife H2956 [H8802] are a continual H1812 dropping.
14 H1004 House H1952 and riches H5159 are the inheritance H1 of fathers H7919 [H8688] : and a prudent H802 wife H3068 is from the LORD.
15 H6103 Slothfulness H5307 [H8686] casteth H8639 into a deep sleep H7423 ; and an idle H5315 soul H7456 [H8799] shall suffer hunger.
16 H8104 [H8802] He that keepeth H4687 the commandment H8104 [H8802] keepeth H5315 his own soul H959 [H8802] ; but he that despiseth H1870 his ways H4191 [H8799] shall die.
17 H2603 [H8802] He that hath pity H1800 upon the poor H3867 [H8688] lendeth H3068 to the LORD H1576 ; and that which he hath given H7999 [H8762] will he pay him again.
18 H3256 [H8761] Chasten H1121 thy son H3426 while there is H8615 hope H5315 , and let not thy soul H5375 [H8799] spare H4191 [H8687] for his crying.
19 H1419 A man H1632 of great H2534 wrath H5375 [H8802] shall suffer H6066 punishment H5337 [H8686] : for if thou deliver H3254 [H8686] him, yet thou must do it again.
20 H8085 [H8798] Hear H6098 counsel H6901 [H8761] , and receive H4148 instruction H2449 [H8799] , that thou mayest be wise H319 in thy latter end.
21 H7227 There are many H4284 devices H376 in a man's H3820 heart H6098 ; nevertheless the counsel H3068 of the LORD H6965 [H8799] , that shall stand.
22 H8378 The desire H120 of a man H2617 is his kindness H7326 [H8802] : and a poor man H2896 is better H376 than H3577 a liar.
23 H3374 The fear H3068 of the LORD H2416 tendeth to life H3885 [H8799] : and he that hath it shall abide H7649 satisfied H6485 [H8735] ; he shall not be visited H7451 with evil.
24 H6102 A slothful H2934 [H8804] man hideth H3027 his hand H6747 in his bosom H7725 0 , and will not so much as bring H6310 it to his mouth H7725 [H8686] again.
25 H5221 [H8686] Smite H3887 [H8801] a scorner H6612 , and the simple H6191 [H8686] will beware H3198 [H8689] : and reprove H995 [H8737] one that hath understanding H995 [H8799] , and he will understand H1847 knowledge.
26 H7703 [H8764] He that wasteth H1 his father H1272 [H8686] , and chaseth away H517 his mother H1121 , is a son H954 [H8688] that causeth shame H2659 [H8688] , and bringeth reproach.
27 H2308 [H8798] Cease H1121 , my son H8085 [H8800] , to hear H4148 the instruction H7686 [H8800] that causeth to err H561 from the words H1847 of knowledge.
28 H1100 An ungodly H5707 witness H3887 [H8686] scorneth H4941 judgment H6310 : and the mouth H7563 of the wicked H1104 [H8762] devoureth H205 iniquity.
