Geneva Study Bible
   1: A soft answer turneth away wrath; But a grievous word stirreth up anger.
   2: The tongue of the wise uttereth knowledge aright; But the mouth of fools poureth out folly.
   3: The eyes of Jehovah are in every place, Keeping watch upon the evil and the good.
   4: A gentle tongue is a tree of life; But perverseness therein is a breaking of the spirit.
   5: A fool despiseth his father's correction; But he that regardeth reproof getteth prudence.
   6: In the house of the righteous is much treasure; But in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.
   7: The lips of the wise disperse knowledge; But the heart of the foolish [doeth] not so.
   8: The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to Jehovah; But the prayer of the upright is his delight.
   9: The way of the wicked is an abomination to Jehovah; But he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.
   10: There is grievous correction for him that forsaketh the way; [And] he that hateth reproof shall die.
   11: Sheol and Abaddon are before Jehovah: How much more then the hearts of the children of men!
   12: A scoffer loveth not to be reproved; He will not go unto the wise.
   13: A glad heart maketh a cheerful countenance; But by sorrow of heart the spirit is broken.
   14: The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge; But the mouth of fools feedeth on folly.
   15: All the days of the afflicted are evil; But he that is of a cheerful heart [hath] a continual feast.
   16: Better is little, with the fear of Jehovah, Than great treasure and trouble therewith.
   17: Better is a dinner of herbs, where love is, Than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.
   18: A wrathful man stirreth up contention; But he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.
   19: The way of the sluggard is as a hedge of thorns; But the path of the upright is made a highway.
   20: A wise son maketh a glad father; But a foolish man despiseth his mother.
   21: Folly is joy to him that is void of wisdom; But a man of understanding maketh straight his going.
   22: Where there is no counsel, purposes are disappointed; But in the multitude of counsellors they are established.
   23: A man hath joy in the answer of his mouth; And a word in due season, how good is it!
   24: To the wise the way of life [goeth] upward, That he may depart from Sheol beneath.
   25: Jehovah will root up the house of the proud; But he will establish the border of the widow.
   26: Evil devices are an abomination to Jehovah; But pleasant words [are] pure.
   27: He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; But he that hateth bribes shall live.
   28: The heart of the righteous studieth to answer; But the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.
   29: Jehovah is far from the wicked; But he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
   30: The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart; [And] good tidings make the bones fat.
   31: The ear that hearkeneth to the reproof of life Shall abide among the wise.
   32: He that refuseth correction despiseth his own soul; But he that hearkeneth to reproof getteth understanding.
   33: The fear of Jehovah is the instruction of wisdom; And before honor [goeth] humility.
