Geneva Study Bible
   1: He who keeps himself separate for his private purpose goes against all good sense.
   2: A foolish man has no pleasure in good sense, but only to let what is in his heart come to light.
   3: When the evil-doer comes, a low opinion comes with him, and with the loss of honour comes shame.
   4: The words of a man's mouth are like deep waters: the fountain of wisdom is like a flowing stream.
   5: To have respect for the person of the evil-doer is not good, or to give a wrong decision against the upright.
   6: A foolish man's lips are a cause of fighting, and his mouth makes him open to blows.
   7: The mouth of a foolish man is his destruction, and his lips are a net for his soul.
   8: The words of one who says evil of his neighbour secretly are like sweet food, and go down into the inner parts of the stomach.
   9: He who does not give his mind to his work is brother to him who makes destruction.
   10: The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the upright man running into it is safe.
   11: The property of a man of wealth is his strong town, and it is as a high wall in the thoughts of his heart.
   12: Before destruction the heart of man is full of pride, and before honour goes a gentle spirit.
   13: To give an answer before hearing is a foolish thing and a cause of shame.
   14: The spirit of a man will be his support when he is ill; but how may a broken spirit be lifted up?
   15: The heart of the man of good sense gets knowledge; the ear of the wise is searching for knowledge.
   16: A man's offering makes room for him, letting him come before great men.
   17: The man who first puts his cause before the judge seems to be in the right; but then his neighbour comes and puts his cause in its true light.
   18: The decision of chance puts an end to argument, parting the strong.
   19: A brother wounded is like a strong town, and violent acts are like a locked tower.
   20: With the fruit of a man's mouth his stomach will be full; the produce of his lips will be his in full measure.
   21: Death and life are in the power of the tongue; and those to whom it is dear will have its fruit for their food.
   22: Whoever gets a wife gets a good thing, and has the approval of the Lord.
   23: The poor man makes requests for grace, but the man of wealth gives a rough answer.
   24: There are friends who may be a man's destruction, but there is a lover who keeps nearer than a brother.
