   1: These are also proverbs of Solomon, which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah transcribed.
   2: It is the glory of God to conceal a thing; but the glory of kings is to search out a thing.
   3: The heavens for height, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings is unsearchable.
   4: Take away the dross from the silver, and there cometh forth a vessel for the refiner:
   5: take away the wicked from before the king, and his throne shall be established in righteousness.
   6: Put not thyself forward in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of the great;
   7: for better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither, than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes see.
   8: Go not forth hastily to strive, lest [thou know not] what to do in the end thereof, when thy neighbour hath put thee to shame.
   9: Debate thy cause with thy neighbour, but reveal not the secret of another;
   10: lest he that heareth [it] disgrace thee, and thine evil report turn not away.
   11: [As] apples of gold in pictures of silver, is a word spoken in season.
   12: An ear-ring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, is a wise reprover upon an attentive ear.
   13: As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, [so] is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refresheth the soul of his masters.
   14: Clouds and wind without rain, [so] is a man that boasteth himself of a false gift.
   15: By long forbearing is a ruler persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.
   16: Hast thou found honey? Eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be surfeited therewith, and vomit it.
   17: Let thy foot be seldom in thy neighbour's house; lest he be weary of thee and hate thee.
   18: A maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow, is a man that beareth false witness against his neighbour.
   19: A broken tooth, and a tottering foot, is confidence in an unfaithful [man] in the day of trouble.
   20: [As] he that taketh off a garment in cold weather, [and as] vinegar upon nitre, so is he that singeth songs to a sad heart.
   21: If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink:
   22: for thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and Jehovah shall reward thee.
   23: The north wind bringeth forth rain, and the angry countenance a backbiting tongue.
   24: It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a contentious woman, and a house in common.
   25: [As] cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
   26: A troubled fountain, and a defiled well, is a righteous [man] that giveth way before the wicked.
   27: It is not good to eat much honey; and to search into weighty matters is [itself] a weight.
   28: He that hath no rule over his own spirit is [as] a city broken down, without walls.
