1 H4428 The king's H3820 heart H3027 is in the hand H3068 of the LORD, H6388 as the rivers H4325 of water: H5186 [H8686] he turneth H2654 [H8799] it wherever he will.
2 H1870 Every way H376 of a man H3477 is right H5869 in his own eyes: H3068 but the LORD H8505 [H8802] weigheth H3826 the hearts.
3 H6213 [H8800] To do H6666 justice H4941 and judgment H977 [H8737] is more acceptable H3068 to the LORD H2077 than sacrifice.
4 H7312 An high H5869 look, H7342 and a proud H3820 heart, H5215 and the plowing H7563 of the wicked, H2403 is sin.
5 H4284 The thoughts H2742 of the diligent H4195 tend only to plenteousness; H213 [H8801] but of every one that is hasty H4270 only to want.
6 H6467 The getting H214 of treasures H8267 by a lying H3956 tongue H1892 is a vanity H5086 [H8737] tossed to and fro by H1245 [H8764] them that seek H4194 death.
7 H7701 The robbery H7563 of the wicked H1641 [H8799] shall drag them away; H3985 [H8765] because they refuse H6213 [H8800] to do H4941 judgment.
8 H1870 The way H376 of man H2019 is perverse H2054 and strange: H2134 but as for the pure, H6467 his work H3477 is right.
9 H2896 It is better H3427 [H8800] to dwell H6438 in a corner H1406 of the housetop, H4079 H4066 [H8675] than with a brawling H802 woman H2267 in a wide H1004 house.
10 H5315 The breath H7563 of the wicked H183 [H8765] desireth H7451 evil: H7453 his neighbour H2603 [H8717] findeth no favour H5869 in his eyes.
11 H3887 [H8801] When the scorner H6064 [H8800] is punished, H6612 the simple H2449 [H8799] is made wise: H2450 and when the wise H7919 [H8687] is instructed, H3947 [H8799] he receiveth H1847 knowledge.
12 H6662 The righteous H7919 [H8688] man wisely considereth H1004 the house H7563 of the wicked: H5557 [H8764] but God overthroweth H7563 the wicked H7451 for their evil.
13 H331 [H8801] Whoever stoppeth H241 his ears H2201 at the outcry H1800 of the poor, H7121 [H8799] he also shall call H6030 [H8735] himself, but shall not be heard.
14 H4976 A gift H5643 in secret H3711 [H8799] pacifieth H639 anger: H7810 and a reward H2436 in the bosom H5794 strong H2534 wrath.
15 H8057 It is joy H6662 to the just H6213 [H8800] to do H4941 judgment: H4288 but destruction H6466 [H8802] shall be to the workers H205 of nothingness.
16 H120 The man H8582 [H8802] that wandereth H1870 out of the way H7919 [H8687] of understanding H5117 [H8799] shall remain H6951 in the congregation H7496 of the dead.
17 H157 [H8802] He that loveth H8057 pleasure H4270 shall be a poor H376 man: H157 [H8802] he that loveth H3196 wine H8081 and oil H6238 [H8686] shall not be rich.
18 H7563 The wicked H3724 shall be a ransom H6662 for the righteous, H898 [H8802] and the transgressor H3477 for the upright.
19 H2896 It is better H3427 [H8800] to dwell H776 H4057 in the wilderness, H4079 H4066 [H8675] than with a contentious H3708 and an angry H802 woman.
20 H214 There is a treasure H2530 [H8737] to be desired H8081 and oil H5116 in the dwelling H2450 of the wise; H3684 but a foolish H120 man H1104 [H8762] spendeth it up.
21 H7291 [H8802] He that followeth H6666 after righteousness H2617 and mercy H4672 [H8799] findeth H2416 life, H6666 righteousness, H3519 and honour.
22 H2450 A wise H5927 [H8804] man scaleth H5892 the city H1368 of the mighty, H3381 [H8686] and casteth down H5797 the strength H4009 of its confidence.
23 H8104 [H8802] Whoever keepeth H6310 his mouth H3956 and his tongue H8104 [H8802] keepeth H5315 his breath H6869 from troubles.
24 H2086 Proud H3093 and haughty H3887 [H8801] scorner H8034 is his name, H6213 [H8802] who dealeth H2087 in proud H5678 wrath.
25 H8378 The desire H6102 of the slothful H4191 [H8686] killeth H3027 him; for his hands H3985 [H8765] refuse H6213 [H8800] to labour.
26 H183 [H8694] He coveteth H8378 greedily H3117 all the day H6662 long: but the righteous H5414 [H8799] giveth H2820 [H8799] and spareth not.
27 H2077 The sacrifice H7563 of the wicked H8441 is abomination: H935 [H8686] how much more, when he bringeth H2154 it with a wicked mind?
28 H3577 A false H5707 witness H6 [H8799] shall perish: H376 but the man H8085 [H8802] that heareth H1696 [H8762] speaketh H5331 constantly.
29 H7563 A wicked H376 man H5810 [H8689] hardeneth H6440 his face: H3477 but as for the upright, H995 H3559 [H8799] he directeth H1870 his way.
