Geneva Study Bible
   1: Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to stink [and] ferment; [so] a little folly is weightier than wisdom [and] honour.
   2: The heart of a wise [man] is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left.
   3: Yea also, when he that is a fool walketh by the way, his sense faileth [him], and he saith to every one [that] he is a fool.
   4: If the spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for quietness pacifieth great offences.
   5: There is an evil that I have seen under the sun, as an error [that] proceedeth from the ruler:
   6: folly is set in great dignities, but the rich sit in a low place.
   7: I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth.
   8: He that diggeth a pit falleth into it; and whoso breaketh down a hedge, a serpent biteth him.
   9: Whoso removeth stones is hurt therewith; he that cleaveth wood is endangered thereby.
   10: If the iron be blunt, and one do not whet the edge, then must he apply more strength; but wisdom is profitable to give success.
   11: If the serpent bite before enchantment, then the charmer hath no advantage.
   12: The words of a wise man's mouth are gracious; but the lips of a fool swallow up himself.
   13: The beginning of the words of his mouth is folly; and the end of his talk is mischievous madness.
   14: And the fool multiplieth words: [yet] man knoweth not what shall be; and what shall be after him, who will tell him?
   15: The labour of fools wearieth them, because they know not how to go to the city.
   16: Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a child, and thy princes eat in the morning!
   17: Happy art thou, O land, when thy king is a son of nobles, and thy princes eat in [due] season, for strength, and not for drunkenness!
   18: By much sloth fulness the framework falleth in; and through idleness of the hands the house drippeth.
   19: A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh life merry; but money answereth everything.
   20: Curse not the king, no, not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for the bird of the air will carry the voice, and that which hath wings will tell the matter.
