Geneva Study Bible
   1: Be not thou envious against 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 shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
   5: A wise man [is] strong; and a man of knowledge increaseth strength.
   6: For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counselors [there is] safety.
   7: Wisdom [is] too high for a fool: he openeth not his mouth in the gate.
   8: He that deviseth to do evil shall be called a mischievous person.
   9: The thought of foolishness [is] sin: and the scorner [is] an abomination to men.
   10: [If] thou faintest in the day of adversity, thy strength [is] small.
   11: If thou forbearest to deliver [them that are] drawn to death, and [those that are] ready to be slain;
   12: If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider [it]? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth [not] he know [it]? and will [not] he render to [every] man according to his works?
   13: My son, eat thou honey, because [it is] good; and the honey-comb, [which is] sweet to thy taste:
   14: So [shall] the knowledge of wisdom [be] to thy soul: when thou hast found [it], then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.
   15: Lay not wait, O wicked [man], against the dwelling of the righteous; destroy not his resting-place:
   16: For a just [man] falleth seven times, and riseth again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.
   17: Rejoice not when thy enemy falleth, and let not thy heart be glad when he stumbleth:
   18: Lest the LORD see [it], and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him.
   19: Fret not thyself because of evil [men], neither be thou envious at the wicked;
   20: For there shall be no reward to the evil [man]; the candle of the wicked shall be extinguished.
   21: My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: [and] 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 [belong] to the wise. [It is] not good to have respect of persons in judgment.
   24: He that saith to the wicked, Thou [art] righteous; him shall the people curse, nations shall abhor him:
   25: But to them that rebuke [him] shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come upon them.
   26: [Every man] shall kiss [his] lips that giveth a right answer.
   27: Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thy house.
   28: Be not a witness against thy neighbor without cause; and deceive [not] 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 the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding;
   31: And lo, it was all grown over with thorns, [and] nettles had covered the face of it, and its stone wall was broken down.
   32: Then I saw, [and] considered [it] well: I looked upon [it], [and] received instruction.
   33: [Yet] a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:
   34: So shall thy poverty come [as] one that traveleth; and thy want as an armed man.
