1 H8034 A good name H977 [H8737] is rather to be chosen H7227 than great H6239 riches, H2896 and loving H2580 favour H3701 rather than silver H2091 and gold.
2 H6223 The rich H7326 [H8802] and poor H6298 [H8738] meet together: H3068 the LORD H6213 [H8802] is the maker of them all.
3 H6175 A prudent H7200 [H8804] man foreseeth H7451 the evil, H5641 H5641 [H8738] and hideth H6612 himself: but the simple H5674 [H8804] pass on, H6064 [H8738] and are punished.
4 H6118 By H6038 humility H3374 and the fear H3068 of the LORD H6239 are riches, H3519 and honour, H2416 and life.
5 H6791 Thorns H6341 and snares H1870 are in the way H6141 of the perverse: H8104 [H8802] he that doth keep H5315 his breath H7368 [H8799] shall be far from them.
6 H2596 [H8798] Train up H5288 a child H1870 in the way H6310 he should go: H2204 [H8686] and when he is old, H5493 [H8799] he will not depart from it.
7 H6223 The rich H4910 [H8799] ruleth H7326 [H8802] over the poor, H3867 [H8801] and the borrower H5650 is servant H376 H3867 [H8688] to the lender.
8 H2232 [H8802] He that soweth H5766 distortion H7114 [H8799] shall reap H205 vanity: H7626 and the rod H5678 of his anger H3615 [H8799] shall fail.
9 H2896 He that hath a bountiful H5869 eye H1288 [H8792] shall be blessed; H5414 [H8804] for he giveth H3899 of his bread H1800 to the poor.
10 H1644 [H8763] Cast out H3887 [H8801] the scorner, H4066 and contention H3318 [H8799] shall end; H1779 yea, strife H7036 and disgrace H7673 [H8799] shall cease.
11 H157 [H8802] He that loveth H2890 H2889 [H8675] pureness H3820 of heart, H2580 for the grace H8193 of his lips H4428 the king H7453 shall be his friend.
12 H5869 The eyes H3068 of the LORD H5341 [H8804] preserve H1847 knowledge, H5557 [H8762] and he overthroweth H1697 the words H898 [H8802] of the transgressor.
13 H6102 The slothful H559 [H8804] man saith, H738 There is a lion H2351 outside, H7523 [H8735] I shall be slain H8432 in H7339 the streets.
14 H6310 The mouth H2114 [H8801] of an adulteress H6013 is a deep H7745 chasm: H2194 [H8803] he that is abhorred H3068 by the LORD H5307 [H8799] shall fall in it.
15 H200 Foolishness H7194 [H8803] is bound H3820 in the heart H5288 of a child; H7626 but the rod H4148 of correction H7368 [H8686] shall drive it far from him.
16 H6231 [H8802] He that oppresseth H1800 the poor H7235 [H8687] to increase H5414 [H8802] his riches, and he that giveth H6223 to the rich, H4270 shall surely come to want.
17 H5186 [H8685] Bow down H241 thy ear, H8085 [H8798] and hear H1697 the words H2450 of the wise, H7896 [H8799] and apply H3820 thy heart H1847 to my knowledge.
18 H5273 For it is a pleasant thing H8104 [H8799] if thou keepest H990 them within H3162 thee; they shall all H3559 [H8735] be ready H8193 on thy lips.
19 H4009 That thy trust H3068 may be in the LORD, H3045 [H8689] I have made known H3117 to thee this day, even to thee.
20 H3789 [H8804] Have not I written H8032 to thee H7991 excellent things H4156 in counsels H1847 and knowledge,
21 H3045 [H8687] That I might make thee know H7189 the certainty H561 of the words H571 of truth; H7725 [H8687] that thou mightest answer H561 the words H571 of truth H7971 [H8802] to them that send to thee?
22 H1497 [H8799] Rob H1800 not the poor, H1800 because he is poor: H1792 [H8762] neither oppress H6041 the depressed H8179 in the gate:
23 H3068 For the LORD H7378 [H8799] will plead H7379 their cause, H6906 [H8804] and spoil H5315 the breath H6906 [H8802] of those that spoiled them.
24 H7462 [H8691] Make no friendship H639 with an angry H1167 man; H2534 and with a furious H376 man H935 [H8799] thou shalt not go:
25 H502 [H8799] Lest thou learn H734 his ways, H3947 [H8804] and get H4170 a snare H5315 to thy breath.
26 H8628 [H8802] Be not thou one of them that strike H3709 hands, H6148 [H8802] or of them that are sureties H4859 for debts.
27 H7999 [H8763] If thou hast nothing to pay, H3947 [H8799] why should he take away H4904 thy bed from under thee?
28 H5253 [H8686] Remove H5769 not the ancient H1366 landmark, H1 which thy fathers H6213 [H8804] have set.
