Geneva Study Bible
   1: The king's heart is in the hand of Jehovah as the watercourses: He turneth it whithersoever he will.
   2: Every way of a man is right in his own eyes; But Jehovah weigheth the hearts.
   3: To do righteousness and justice Is more acceptable to Jehovah than sacrifice.
   4: A high look, and a proud heart, [Even] the lamp of the wicked, is sin.
   5: The thoughts of the diligent [tend] only to plenteousness; But every one that is hasty [hasteth] only to want.
   6: The getting of treasures by a lying tongue Is a vapor driven to and fro by them that seek death.
   7: The violence of the wicked shall sweep them away, Because they refuse to do justice.
   8: The way of him that is laden with guilt is exceeding crooked; But as for the pure, his work is right.
   9: It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, Than with a contentious woman in a wide house.
   10: The soul of the wicked desireth evil: His neighbor findeth no favor in his eyes.
   11: When the scoffer is punished, the simple is made wise; And when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.
   12: The righteous man considereth the house of the wicked, [How] the wicked are overthrown to [their] ruin.
   13: Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, He also shall cry, but shall not be heard.
   14: A gift in secret pacifieth anger; And a present in the bosom, strong wrath.
   15: It is joy to the righteous to do justice; But it is a destruction to the workers of iniquity.
   16: The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding Shall rest in the assembly of the dead.
   17: He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: He that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.
   18: The wicked is a ransom for the righteous; And the treacherous [cometh] in the stead of the upright.
   19: It is better to dwell in a desert land, Than with a contentious and fretful woman.
   20: There is precious treasure and oil in the dwelling of the wise; But a foolish man swalloweth it up.
   21: He that followeth after righteousness and kindness Findeth life, righteousness, and honor.
   22: A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, And bringeth down the strength of the confidence thereof.
   23: Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue Keepeth his soul from troubles.
   24: The proud and haughty man, scoffer is his name; He worketh in the arrogance of pride.
   25: The desire of the sluggard killeth him; For his hands refuse to labor.
   26: There is that coveteth greedily all the day long; But the righteous giveth and withholdeth not.
   27: The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination: How much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind!
   28: A false witness shall perish; But the man that heareth shall speak so as to endure.
   29: A wicked man hardeneth his face; But as for the upright, he establisheth his ways.
   30: There is no wisdom nor understanding Nor counsel against Jehovah.
   31: The horse is prepared against the day of battle; But victory is of Jehovah.
