Geneva Study Bible
   1: A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.
   2: The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all.
   3: A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.
   4: By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.
   5: Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.
   6: Train up a child in the way he should go: 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 iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of his anger shall fail.
   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 shall go out; yea, strife and reproach shall cease.
   11: He that loveth pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend.
   12: The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge, and he overthroweth the words of the transgressor.
   13: The slothful man saith, There is a lion without, I shall be slain in the streets.
   14: The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the LORD shall fall therein.
   15: Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
   16: He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.
   17: Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge.
   18: For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee; they shall withal be fitted in thy lips.
   19: That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made 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 answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?
   22: Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
   23: For the LORD will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them.
   24: Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:
   25: Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.
   26: Be not thou one of them that strike hands, or 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: Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.
