   1: The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father; But a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother.
   2: Treasures of wickedness profit nothing; But righteousness delivereth from death.
   3: Jehovah will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish; But he thrusteth away the desire of the wicked.
   4: He becometh poor that worketh with a slack hand; But the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
   5: He that gathereth in summer is a wise son; [But] he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.
   6: Blessings are upon the head of the righteous; But violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
   7: The memory of the righteous is blessed; But the name of the wicked shall rot.
   8: The wise in heart will receive commandments; But a prating fool shall fall.
   9: He that walketh uprightly walketh surely; But he that perverteth his ways shall be known.
   10: He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow; But a prating fool shall fall.
   11: The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life; But violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
   12: Hatred stirreth up strifes; But love covereth all transgressions.
   13: In the lips of him that hath discernment wisdom is found; But a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.
   14: Wise men lay up knowledge; But the mouth of the foolish is a present destruction.
   15: The rich man's wealth is his strong city: The destruction of the poor is their poverty.
   16: The labor of the righteous [tendeth] to life; The increase of the wicked, to sin.
   17: He is in the way of life that heedeth correction; But he that forsaketh reproof erreth.
   18: He that hideth hatred is of lying lips; And he that uttereth a slander is a fool.
   19: In the multitude of words there wanteth not transgression; But he that refraineth his lips doeth wisely.
   20: The tongue of the righteous is [as] choice silver: The heart of the wicked is little worth.
   21: The lips of the righteous feed many; But the foolish die for lack of understanding.
   22: The blessing of Jehovah, it maketh rich; And he addeth no sorrow therewith.
   23: It is as sport to a fool to do wickedness; And [so is] wisdom to a man of understanding.
   24: The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him; And the desire of the righteous shall be granted.
   25: When the whirlwind passeth, the wicked is no more; But the righteous is an everlasting foundation.
   26: As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, So is the sluggard to them that send him.
   27: The fear of Jehovah prolongeth days; But the years of the wicked shall be shortened.
   28: The hope of the righteous [shall be] gladness; But the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
   29: The way of Jehovah is a stronghold to the upright; But it is a destruction to the workers of iniquity.
   30: The righteous shall never be removed; But the wicked shall not dwell in the land.
   31: The mouth of the righteous bringeth forth wisdom; But the perverse tongue shall be cut off.
   32: The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable; But the mouth of the wicked [speaketh] perverseness.
