Proverbs 20

  1 H3196 Wine H3887 [H8801] is a mocker H7941 , strong drink H1993 [H8802] is raging H7686 [H8802] : and whoever is deceived H2449 [H8799] by it is not wise.
  2 H367 The fear H4428 of a king H5099 is as the roaring H3715 of a lion H5674 [H8693] : whoever provoketh him to anger H2398 [H8802] sinneth H5315 against his own soul.
  3 H3519 It is an honour H376 for a man H7674 to cease H7379 from strife H191 : but every fool H1566 [H8691] will be meddling.
  4 H6102 The sluggard H2790 [H8799] will not plow H2779 by reason of the cold H7592 H7592 [H8804] ; therefore shall he beg H7105 in harvest, and have nothing.
  5 H6098 Counsel H3820 in the heart H376 of man H6013 is like deep H4325 water H376 ; but a man H8394 of understanding H1802 [H8799] will draw it out.
  6 H7230 Most H120 men H7121 [H8799] will proclaim H376 every one H2617 his own goodness H529 : but a faithful H376 man H4672 [H8799] who can find?
  7 H6662 The just H1980 [H8693] man walketh H8537 in his integrity H1121 : his children H835 are blessed H310 after him.
  8 H4428 A king H3427 [H8802] that sitteth on H3678 the throne H1779 of judgment H2219 [H8764] scattereth away H7451 all evil H5869 with his eyes.
  9 H559 [H8799] Who can say H3820 , I have made my heart H2135 [H8765] clean H2891 [H8804] , I am pure H2403 from my sin?
  10 H68 Differing weights H374 , and differing measures H8147 , both H1571 of them are alike H8441 abomination H3068 to the LORD.
  11 H5288 Even a child H5234 [H8691] is known H4611 by his doings H6467 , whether his work H2134 is pure H3477 , and whether it is right.
  12 H8085 [H8802] The hearing H241 ear H7200 [H8802] , and the seeing H5869 eye H3068 , the LORD H6213 [H8804] hath made H8147 even both of them.
  13 H157 [H8799] Love H8142 not sleep H3423 [H8735] , lest thou come to poverty H6491 [H8798] ; open H5869 thy eyes H7646 [H8798] , and thou shalt be satisfied H3899 with bread.
  14 H7451 It is nothing H7451 , it is nothing H559 [H8799] , saith H7069 [H8802] the buyer H235 [H8801] : but when he is gone H1984 [H8691] his way, then he boasteth.
  15 H3426 There is H2091 gold H7230 , and an abundance H6443 of rubies H8193 : but the lips H1847 of knowledge H3366 are a precious H3627 jewel.
  16 H3947 [H8798] Take H899 his garment H6148 [H8804] that is surety H2114 [H8801] for a stranger H2254 [H8798] : and take a pledge H5237 of him for an adulteress.
  17 H3899 Bread H8267 of deceit H6156 is sweet H376 to a man H310 ; but afterwards H6310 his mouth H4390 [H8735] shall be filled H2687 with gravel.
  18 H4284 Every purpose H3559 [H8735] is established H6098 by counsel H8458 : and with good advice H6213 [H8798] make H4421 war.
  19 H1980 [H8802] He that goeth about H7400 as a talebearer H1540 [H8802] revealeth H5475 secrets H6148 [H8691] : therefore meddle H6601 [H8802] not with him that flattereth H8193 with his lips.
  20 H7043 [H8764] Whoever curseth H1 his father H517 or his mother H5216 , his lamp H1846 [H8799] shall be put out H380 H380 [H8676] in obscure H2822 darkness.
  21 H5159 An inheritance H926 H973 [H8794] may be gotten hastily H7223 at the beginning H319 ; but the end H1288 [H8792] of it shall not be blessed.
  22 H559 [H8799] Say H7999 [H8762] not thou, I will recompense H7451 evil H6960 [H8761] ; but wait on H3068 the LORD H3467 [H8686] , and he shall save thee.
  23 H68 Differing weights H8441 are an abomination H3068 to the LORD H4820 ; and a false H3976 balance H2896 is not good.
  24 H1397 Man's H4703 goings H3068 are of the LORD H120 ; how can a man H995 [H8799] then understand H1870 his own way?
  25 H4170 It is a snare H120 to the man H3216 [H8804] who devoureth H6944 that which is holy H310 , and after H5088 vows H1239 [H8763] to make enquiry.
  26 H2450 A wise H4428 king H2219 [H8764] scattereth H7563 the wicked H7725 [H8686] , and bringeth H212 the wheel over them.
  27 H5397 The spirit H120 of man H5216 is the lamp H3068 of the LORD H2664 [H8802] , searching H2315 all the inward parts H990 of the belly.
  28 H2617 Mercy H571 and truth H5341 [H8799] preserve H4428 the king H3678 : and his throne H5582 [H8804] is upheld H2617 by mercy.
  29 H8597 The glory H970 of young men H3581 is their strength H1926 : and the beauty H2205 of old men H7872 is the gray head.
  30 H2250 The blueness H6482 of a wound H8562 cleanseth H7451 away evil H4347 : so do stripes H2315 the inward parts H990 of the belly.
