Geneva Study Bible
   1: A [good] name is rather to be chosen than great riches; loving favour rather than silver and gold.
   2: The rich and poor meet together; Jehovah is the maker of them all.
   3: A prudent [man] seeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.
   4: The reward of humility [and] the fear of Jehovah is riches, and honour, and life.
   5: Thorns [and] snares are in the way of the perverse: he that keepeth his soul holdeth himself far from them.
   6: Train up the child according to the tenor of his way, and when he is old he will not depart from it.
   7: The rich ruleth over the poor; and the borrower is servant to the lender.
   8: He that soweth unrighteousness shall reap iniquity, and the rod of his wrath shall have an end.
   9: He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed, for he giveth of his bread to the poor.
   10: Cast out the scorner, and contention will depart, and strife and ignominy shall cease.
   11: He that loveth pureness of heart, upon whose lips is grace, the king is his friend.
   12: The eyes of Jehovah preserve knowledge; but he overthroweth the words of the unfaithful.
   13: The sluggard saith, There is a lion without, I shall be killed in the streets!
   14: The mouth of strange women is a deep ditch: he with whom Jehovah is displeased shall fall therein.
   15: Folly is bound in the heart of a child; the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
   16: He that oppresseth the poor, it is to enrich him; he that giveth to the rich, [bringeth] only to want.
   17: Incline thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thy heart unto my knowledge.
   18: For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee: they shall be together fitted on thy lips.
   19: That thy confidence may be in Jehovah, I have made [them] known to thee this day, even to thee.
   20: Have not I written to thee excellent things, in counsels and knowledge,
   21: that I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest carry back words of truth to them that send thee?
   22: Rob not the poor, because he is poor, neither oppress the afflicted in the gate;
   23: for Jehovah will plead their cause, and despoil the soul of those that despoil them.
   24: Make no friendship with an angry man, and go not with a furious man;
   25: lest thou learn his paths, and get a snare to thy soul.
   26: Be not of them that strike hands, of them that are sureties for debts:
   27: if thou hast nothing to pay, why should he take away thy bed from under thee?
   28: Remove not the ancient landmark which thy fathers have set.
   29: Hast thou seen a man diligent in his work? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before the mean.
