1: The plans of the heart belong to man; But the answer of the tongue is from Jehovah. 2: All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; But Jehovah weigheth the spirits. 3: Commit thy works unto Jehovah, And thy purposes shall be established. 4: Jehovah hath made everything for its own end; Yea, even the wicked for the day of evil. 5: Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to Jehovah: [Though] hand [join] in hand, he shall not be unpunished. 6: By mercy and truth iniquity is atoned for; And by the fear of Jehovah men depart from evil. 7: When a man's ways please Jehovah, He maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him. 8: Better is a little, with righteousness, Than great revenues with injustice. 9: A man's heart deviseth his way; But Jehovah directeth his steps. 10: A divine sentence is in the lips of the king; His mouth shall not transgress in judgment. 11: A just balance and scales are Jehovah's; All the weights of the bag are his work. 12: It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness; For the throne is established by righteousness. 13: Righteous lips are the delight of kings; And they love him that speaketh right. 14: The wrath of a king is [as] messengers of death; But a wise man will pacify it. 15: In the light of the king's countenance is life; And his favor is as a cloud of the latter rain. 16: How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! Yea, to get understanding is rather to be chosen than silver. 17: The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: He that keepeth his way preserveth his soul. 18: Pride [goeth] before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. 19: Better it is to be of a lowly spirit with the poor, Than to divide the spoil with the proud. 20: He that giveth heed unto the word shall find good; And whoso trusteth in Jehovah, happy is he. 21: The wise in heart shall be called prudent; And the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning. 22: Understanding is a well-spring of life unto him that hath it; But the correction of fools is [their] folly. 23: The heart of the wise instructeth his mouth, And addeth learning to his lips. 24: Pleasant words are [as] a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul, and health to the bones. 25: There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, But the end thereof are the ways of death. 26: The appetite of the laboring man laboreth for him; For his mouth urgeth him [thereto]. 27: A worthless man deviseth mischief; And in his lips there is as a scorching fire. 28: A perverse man scattereth abroad strife; And a whisperer separateth chief friends. 29: A man of violence enticeth his neighbor, And leadeth him in a way that is not good. 30: He that shutteth his eyes, [it is] to devise perverse things: He that compresseth his lips bringeth evil to pass. 31: The hoary head is a crown of glory; It shall be found in the way of righteousness. 32: He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; And he that ruleth his spirit, than he that taketh a city. 33: The lot is cast into the lap; But the whole disposing thereof is of Jehovah.
