Geneva Study Bible
   1: These [are] also proverbs of Solomon, which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied out.
   2: [It is] the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings [is] to search out a matter.
   3: The heaven for hight, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings [is] unsearchable.
   4: Take away the dross from the silver, and there shall come forth a vessel for the finer.
   5: Take away the wicked [from] before the king, and his throne shall be established in righteousness.
   6: Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great [men]:
   7: For better [it is] that it be said to thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldst be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thy eyes have seen.
   8: Go not forth hastily to strive, lest [thou know not] what to do in the end thereof, when thy neighbor hath put thee to shame.
   9: Debate thy cause with thy neighbor [himself]; and reveal not a secret to another:
   10: Lest he that heareth [it] put thee to shame, and thy infamy turn not away.
   11: A word fitly spoken [is like] apples of gold in pictures of silver.
   12: [As] an ear-ring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, [so is] a wise reprover upon an obedient 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: Whoever boasteth himself of a false gift [is like] clouds and wind without rain.
   15: By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.
   16: Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled with it, and vomit it.
   17: Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbor's house; lest he be weary of thee, and [so] hate thee.
   18: A man that beareth false witness against his neighbor [is] a maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow.
   19: Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble [is like] a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.
   20: [As] he that taketh away a garment in cold weather, [and as] vinegar upon nitre; so [is] he that singeth songs to a heavy heart.
   21: If thy enemy shall hunger, give him bread to eat; and if he shall thirst, give him water to drink:
   22: For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD will reward thee.
   23: The north wind driveth away rain: so [doth] an angry countenance a backbiting tongue.
   24: [It is] better to dwell in a corner of the house-top, than with a brawling woman and in a wide house.
   25: [As] cold waters to a thirsty soul, so [is] good news from a far country.
   26: A righteous man falling down before the wicked [is as] a turbid fountain, and a corrupt spring.
   27: [It is] not good to eat much honey: so [for men] to search their own glory [is not] glory.
   28: He that [hath] no rule over his own spirit [is like] a city [that is] broken down, [and] without walls.
