Proverbs 20

  1 H3196 Wine H3887 [H8801] is a mocker, H7941 strong drink H1993 [H8802] is raging: H7686 [H8802] and whoever is led astray 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 breath.
  3 H3519 It is an glory 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 call H376 every one H2617 his own mercy: 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 sons H835 are happy 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 clear, 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 thine 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 a pupil H2822 of 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 liberate 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 a man H3216 [H8804] who blurteth H6944 "It 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 breath 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.
