Geneva Study Bible
   1: Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity Than he that is perverse in his lips and is a fool.
   2: Also, that the soul be without knowledge is not good; And he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.
   3: The foolishness of man subverteth his way; And his heart fretteth against Jehovah.
   4: Wealth addeth many friends; But the poor is separated from his friend.
   5: A false witness shall not be unpunished; And he that uttereth lies shall not escape.
   6: Many will entreat the favor of the liberal man; And every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts.
   7: All the brethren of the poor do hate him: How much more do his friends go far from him! He pursueth [them with] words, [but] they are gone.
   8: He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: He that keepeth understanding shall find good.
   9: A false witness shall not be unpunished; And he that uttereth lies shall perish.
   10: Delicate living is not seemly for a fool; Much less for a servant to have rule over princes.
   11: The discretion of a man maketh him slow to anger; And it is his glory to pass over a transgression.
   12: The king's wrath is as the roaring of a lion; But his favor is as dew upon the grass.
   13: A foolish son is the calamity of his father; And the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.
   14: House and riches are an inheritance from fathers; But a prudent wife is from Jehovah.
   15: Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; And the idle soul shall suffer hunger.
   16: He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his soul; [But] he that is careless of his ways shall die.
   17: He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto Jehovah, And his good deed will he pay him again.
   18: Chasten thy son, seeing there is hope; nd set not thy heart on his destruction.
   19: A man of great wrath shall bear the penalty; For if thou deliver [him], thou must do it yet again.
   20: Hear counsel, and receive instruction, That thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
   21: There are many devices in a man's heart; But the counsel of Jehovah, that shall stand.
   22: That which maketh a man to be desired is his kindness; And a poor man is better than a liar.
   23: The fear of Jehovah [tendeth] to life; And he [that hath it] shall abide satisfied; He shall not be visited with evil.
   24: The sluggard burieth his hand in the dish, And will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
   25: Smite a scoffer, and the simple will learn prudence; And reprove one that hath understanding, [and] he will understand knowledge.
   26: He that doeth violence to his father, and chaseth away his mother, Is a son that causeth shame and bringeth reproach.
   27: Cease, my son, to hear instruction [Only] to err from the words of knowledge.
   28: A worthless witness mocketh at justice; And the mouth of the wicked swalloweth iniquity.
   29: Judgments are prepared for scoffers, And stripes for the back of fools.
