   1: The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, [are] from the LORD.
   2: All the ways of a man [are] clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.
   3: Commit thy works to the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.
   4: The LORD hath made all [things] for himself: yes, even the wicked for the day of evil.
   5: Every one [that is] proud in heart [is] an abomination to the LORD: [though] hand [join] in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
   6: By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD [men] depart from evil.
   7: When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
   8: Better [is] a little with righteousness, than great revenues without right.
   9: A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.
   10: A divine sentence [is] in the lips of the king: his mouth transgresseth not in judgment.
   11: A just weight and balance [are] the LORD'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 right.
   14: The wrath of a king [is as] messengers of death: but a wise man will pacify it.
   15: In the light of a king's countenance [is] life; and his favor [is] as a cloud of the latter rain.
   16: How much better [is it] to get wisdom than gold? and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver?
   17: The highway of the upright [is] to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.
   18: Pride [goeth] before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
   19: Better [it is to be] of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.
   20: He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoever trusteth in the LORD, happy [is] he.
   21: The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.
   22: Understanding [is] a well-spring of life to him that hath it: but the instruction of fools [is] folly.
   23: The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.
   24: Pleasant words [are as] a honey-comb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
   25: There is a way that seemeth right to a man, but the end of it [is] the ways of death.
   26: He that laboreth laboreth for himself; for his mouth craveth it of him.
   27: An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips [there is] as a burning fire.
   28: A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends.
   29: A violent man enticeth his neighbor, and leadeth him into the way [that is] not good.
   30: He shutteth his eyes to devise froward things: moving 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 disposing of it [is] from the LORD.
