   1: He that being often reproved hardeneth his neck Shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
   2: When the righteous are increased, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man beareth rule, the people sigh.
   3: Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father; But he that keepeth company with harlots wasteth [his] substance.
   4: The king by justice establisheth the land; But he that exacteth gifts overthroweth it.
   5: A man that flattereth his neighbor Spreadeth a net for his steps.
   6: In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare; But the righteous doth sing and rejoice.
   7: The righteous taketh knowledge of the cause of the poor; The wicked hath not understanding to know [it].
   8: Scoffers set a city in a flame; But wise men turn away wrath.
   9: If a wise man hath a controversy with a foolish man, Whether he be angry or laugh, there will be no rest.
   10: The bloodthirsty hate him that is perfect; And as for the upright, they seek his life.
   11: A fool uttereth all his anger; But a wise man keepeth it back and stilleth it.
   12: If a ruler hearkeneth to falsehood, All his servants are wicked.
   13: The poor man and the oppressor meet together; Jehovah lighteneth the eyes of them both.
   14: The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, His throne shall be established for ever.
   15: The rod and reproof give wisdom; But a child left to himself causeth shame to his mother.
   16: When the wicked are increased, transgression increaseth; But the righteous shall look upon their fall.
   17: Correct thy son, and he will give thee rest; Yea, he will give delight unto thy soul.
   18: Where there is no vision, the people cast off restraint; But he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
   19: A servant will not be corrected by words; For though he understand, he will not give heed.
   20: Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? There is more hope of a fool than of him.
   21: He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child Shall have him become a son at the last.
   22: An angry man stirreth up strife, And a wrathful man aboundeth in transgression.
   23: A man's pride shall bring him low; But he that is of a lowly spirit shall obtain honor.
   24: Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul; He heareth the adjuration and uttereth nothing.
   25: The fear of man bringeth a snare; But whoso putteth his trust in Jehovah shall be safe.
   26: Many seek the ruler's favor; But a man's judgment [cometh] from Jehovah.
   27: An unjust man is an abomination to the righteous; And he that is upright in the way is an abomination to the wicked.
