   1: Every wise woman buildeth her house; But the foolish plucketh it down with her own hands.
   2: He that walketh in his uprightness feareth Jehovah; But he that is perverse in his ways despiseth him.
   3: In the mouth of the foolish is a rod for [his] pride; But the lips of the wise shall preserve them.
   4: Where no oxen are, the crib is clean; But much increase is by the strength of the ox.
   5: A faithful witness will not lie; But a false witness uttereth lies.
   6: A scoffer seeketh wisdom, and [findeth it] not; But knowledge is easy unto him that hath understanding.
   7: Go into the presence of a foolish man, And thou shalt not perceive [in him] the lips of knowledge.
   8: The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way; But the folly of fools is deceit.
   9: A trespass-offering mocketh fools; But among the upright there is good will.
   10: The heart knoweth its own bitterness; And a stranger doth not intermeddle with its joy.
   11: The house of the wicked shall be overthrown; But the tent of the upright shall flourish.
   12: There is a way which seemeth right unto a man; But the end thereof are the ways of death.
   13: Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; And the end of mirth is heaviness.
   14: The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways; And a good man [shall be satisfied] from himself.
   15: The simple believeth every word; But the prudent man looketh well to his going.
   16: A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil; But the fool beareth himself insolently, and is confident.
   17: He that is soon angry will deal foolishly; And a man of wicked devices is hated.
   18: The simple inherit folly; But the prudent are crowned with knowledge.
   19: The evil bow down before the good; And the wicked, at the gates of the righteous.
   20: The poor is hated even of his own neighbor; But the rich hath many friends.
   21: He that despiseth his neighbor sinneth; But he that hath pity on the poor, happy is he.
   22: Do they not err that devise evil? But mercy and truth [shall be to] them that devise good.
   23: In all labor there is profit; But the talk of the lips [tendeth] only to penury.
   24: The crown of the wise is their riches; [But] the folly of fools is [only] folly.
   25: A true witness delivereth souls; But he that uttereth lies [causeth] deceit.
   26: In the fear of Jehovah is strong confidence; And his children shall have a place of refuge.
   27: The fear of Jehovah is a fountain of life, That one may depart from the snares of death.
   28: In the multitude of people is the king's glory; But in the want of people is the destruction of the prince.
   29: He that is slow to anger is of great understanding; But he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.
   30: A tranquil heart is the life of the flesh; But envy is the rottenness of the bones.
   31: He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker; But he that hath mercy on the needy honoreth him.
   32: The wicked is thrust down in his evil-doing; But the righteous hath a refuge in his death.
   33: Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding; But [that which is] in the inward part of fools is made known.
   34: Righteousness exalteth a nation; But sin is a reproach to any people.
   35: The king's favor is toward a servant that dealeth wisely; But his wrath will be [against] him that causeth shame.
