1: The purposes of the heart are of man, but the answer of the tongue is from Jehovah. 2: All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but Jehovah weigheth the spirits. 3: Commit thy works unto Jehovah, and thy thoughts shall be established. 4: Jehovah hath wrought everything on his own account, yea, even the wicked for the day of evil. 5: Every proud heart is an abomination to Jehovah: hand for hand, he shall not be held innocent. 6: By loving-kindness and truth iniquity is atoned for; and by the fear of Jehovah [men] depart from evil. 7: When a man's ways please Jehovah, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him. 8: Better is a little with righteousness, than great revenues without right. 9: The heart of man deviseth his way, but Jehovah directeth his steps. 10: An oracle is on the lips of the king: his mouth will not err in judgment. 11: The just balance and scales are Jehovah's; all the weights of the bag are his work. 12: It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness; for the throne is established by righteousness. 13: Righteous lips are the delight of kings, and they love him that speaketh aright. 14: The fury of a king is [as] messengers of death; but a wise man will pacify it. 15: In the light of the king's countenance is life, and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain. 16: How much better is it to get wisdom than fine gold, and the getting of intelligence to be preferred to silver! 17: The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that taketh heed to his way keepeth his soul. 18: Pride [goeth] before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. 19: Better is it to be of a humble spirit with the meek, than to divide the spoil with the proud. 20: He that giveth heed to the word shall find good; and whoso confideth in Jehovah, happy is he. 21: The wise in heart is called intelligent, and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning. 22: Wisdom is a fountain of life for him that hath it; but the instruction of fools is folly. 23: The heart of the wise maketh his mouth intelligent, and upon his lips increaseth learning. 24: Pleasant words are [as] a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health for the bones. 25: There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof is the ways of death. 26: The appetite of the labourer laboureth for him, for his mouth urgeth him on. 27: A man of Belial diggeth up evil, and on his lips there is as a scorching fire. 28: A false man soweth contention; and a talebearer separateth very friends. 29: A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into a way that is not good. 30: He that shutteth his eyes, [it is] to devise froward things; biting his lips, he bringeth evil to pass. 31: The hoary head is a crown of glory, [if] it is found in the way of righteousness. 32: He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city. 33: The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole decision is of Jehovah.
