1: The wisdom of women buildeth their house; but folly plucketh it down with her hands. 2: He that walketh in his uprightness feareth Jehovah; but he that is perverted in his ways despiseth him. 3: In the fool's mouth is a rod of pride; but the lips of the wise shall preserve them. 4: Where no oxen are, the crib is clean; but much increase is by the strength of the ox. 5: A faithful witness will not lie; but a false witness uttereth lies. 6: A scorner seeketh wisdom, and there is none [for him]; but knowledge is easy unto the intelligent. 7: Go from the presence of a foolish man, in whom thou perceivest not the lips of knowledge. 8: The wisdom of the prudent is to discern his way; but the folly of the foolish is deceit. 9: Fools make a mock at trespass; but for the upright there is favour. 10: The heart knoweth its own bitterness, and a stranger doth not intermeddle with its joy. 11: The house of the wicked shall be overthrown; but the tent of the upright shall flourish. 12: There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof is the ways of death. 13: Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful, and the end of mirth is sadness. 14: The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways, and the good man from what is in himself. 15: The simple believeth every word; but the prudent [man] heedeth his going. 16: A wise [man] feareth and departeth from evil; but the foolish is overbearing and confident. 17: He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly, and a man of mischievous devices is hated. 18: The simple inherit folly; but the prudent are crowned with knowledge. 19: The evil bow before the good, and the wicked at the gates of the righteous [man]. 20: He that is poor is hated even of his own neighbour; but the rich hath many friends. 21: He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth; but he that is gracious to the afflicted, happy is he. 22: Do they not err that devise evil? but loving-kindness and truth are for those that devise good. 23: In all labour there is profit; but the talk of the lips [tendeth] only to want. 24: The crown of the wise is their riches; the folly of the foolish is folly. 25: A true witness delivereth souls; but deceit uttereth lies. 26: In the fear of Jehovah is strong confidence, and his children shall have a place of refuge. 27: The fear of Jehovah is a fountain of life, to turn away from the snares of death. 28: In the multitude of people is the king's glory; but in the lack of people is the ruin of a prince. 29: He that is slow to anger is of great understanding; but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly. 30: A sound heart is the life of the flesh; but envy the rottenness of the bones. 31: He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker; but he that honoureth Him is gracious to the needy. 32: The wicked is driven away by his evil-doing; but the righteous trusteth, [even] in his death. 33: Wisdom resteth in the heart of the intelligent [man]; but that which is in the foolish maketh itself known. 34: Righteousness exalteth a nation; but sin is a reproach to peoples. 35: The king's favour is toward a wise servant; but his wrath is [against] him that causeth shame.
