1: The Proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father; but a foolish son is the grief of his mother. 2: Treasures of wickedness profit nothing; but righteousness delivereth from death. 3: Jehovah suffereth not the soul of the righteous [man] to famish; but he repelleth the craving of the wicked. 4: He cometh to want that dealeth with a slack hand; but the hand of the diligent maketh rich. 5: He that gathereth in summer is a wise son; he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame. 6: Blessings are upon the head of a righteous [man]; but the mouth of the wicked covereth violence. 7: The memory of the righteous [man] shall be blessed; but the name of the wicked shall rot. 8: The wise in heart receiveth commandments; but a prating fool shall fall. 9: He that walketh in integrity walketh securely; but he that perverteth his ways shall be known. 10: He that winketh with the eye causeth grief, and a prating fool shall fall. 11: The mouth of a righteous [man] is a fountain of life; but the mouth of the wicked covereth violence. 12: Hatred stirreth up strifes; but love covereth all transgressions. 13: In the lips of an intelligent [man] wisdom is found; but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding. 14: The wise lay up knowledge; but the mouth of the fool is near destruction. 15: The rich man's wealth is his strong city; the destruction of the poor is their poverty. 16: The labour of a righteous [man] [tendeth] to life; the revenue of a wicked [man], to sin. 17: Keeping instruction is the path to life; but he that forsaketh reproof goeth astray. 18: He that covereth hatred hath lying lips, and he that sendeth forth a slander is a fool. 19: In the multitude of words there wanteth not transgression; but he that restraineth his lips doeth wisely. 20: The tongue of the righteous [man] is [as] choice silver; the heart of the wicked is little worth. 21: The lips of a righteous [man] feed many; but fools die for want of understanding. 22: The blessing of Jehovah, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow to it. 23: It is as sport to a foolish [man] to do wickedness; but a man of understanding hath wisdom. 24: The fear of a wicked [man], it shall come upon him; but the desire of the righteous shall be granted. 25: As a whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no [more]; but the righteous is an everlasting foundation. 26: As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that send him. 27: The fear of Jehovah prolongeth days; but the years of the wicked shall be shortened. 28: The hope of the righteous is joy; but the expectation of the wicked shall perish. 29: The way of Jehovah is strength to the perfect [man], but destruction to the workers of iniquity. 30: The righteous [man] shall never be moved; but the wicked shall not inhabit the land. 31: The mouth of a righteous [man] putteth forth wisdom; but the froward tongue shall be cut out. 32: The lips of a righteous [man] know what is acceptable; but the mouth of the wicked is frowardness.
