Geneva Study Bible
   1: Be not thou envious of evil men, neither desire to be with them;
   2: for their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.
   3: Through wisdom is a house built, and by understanding it is established;
   4: and by knowledge are the chambers filled with all precious and pleasant substance.
   5: A wise man is strong, and a man of knowledge increaseth strength.
   6: For with good advice shalt thou make thy war; and in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.
   7: Wisdom is too high for a fool: he will not open his mouth in the gate.
   8: He that deviseth to do evil shall be called a master of intrigues.
   9: The purpose of folly is sin, and the scorner is an abomination to men.
   10: [If] thou losest courage in the day of trouble, thy strength is small.
   11: Deliver them that are taken forth unto death, and withdraw not from them that stagger to slaughter.
   12: If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not, will not he that weigheth the hearts consider it? And he that preserveth thy soul, he knoweth it; and he rendereth to man according to his work.
   13: Eat honey, my son, for it is good; and a honeycomb is sweet to thy taste:
   14: so consider wisdom for thy soul; if thou hast found it, there shall be a result, and thine expectation shall not be cut off.
   15: Lay not wait, O wicked [man], against the dwelling of the righteous; lay not waste his resting-place.
   16: For the righteous falleth seven times, and riseth up again; but the wicked stumble into disaster.
   17: Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thy heart be glad when he stumbleth;
   18: lest Jehovah see it, and it be evil in his sight, and he turn away his anger from him.
   19: Fret not thyself because of evil-doers, [and] be not envious of the wicked:
   20: for there shall be no future to the evil [man]; the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.
   21: My son, fear Jehovah and the king: meddle not with them that are given to change.
   22: For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both?
   23: These things also come from the wise. It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment.
   24: He that saith unto the wicked, Thou art righteous, peoples shall curse him, nations shall abhor him;
   25: but to them that rebuke [him] shall be delight, and a good blessing cometh upon them.
   26: He kisseth the lips who giveth a right answer.
   27: Prepare thy work without, and put thy field in order, and afterwards build thy house.
   28: Be not a witness against thy neighbour without cause; and wouldest thou deceive with thy lips?
   29: Say not, I will do so to him as he hath done to me, I will render to the man according to his work.
   30: I went by the field of a sluggard, and by the vineyard of a man void of understanding;
   31: and lo, it was all grown over with thistles, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and its stone wall was broken down.
   32: Then I looked, I took it to heart; I saw, I received instruction:
   33: -- A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest!
   34: So shall thy poverty come [as] a roving plunderer, and thy penury as an armed man.
