1: He, that being often reproved hardeneth [his] neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy. 2: When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. 3: He that loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth [his] substance. 4: The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it. 5: A man that flattereth his neighbor spreadeth a net for his feet. 6: In the transgression of an evil man [there is] a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice. 7: The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: [but] the wicked regardeth not to know [it]. 8: Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise [men] turn away wrath. 9: [If] a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rageth or laugheth, [there is] no rest. 10: The blood-thirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul. 11: A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise [man] keepeth it in till afterwards. 12: If a ruler hearkeneth to lies, all his servants [are] wicked. 13: The poor and the deceitful man meet together: the LORD enlighteneth both their eyes. 14: The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever. 15: The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left [to himself] bringeth his mother to shame. 16: When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall. 17: Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yes, he shall give delight to thy soul. 18: Where [there is] no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy [is] he. 19: A servant will not be corrected by words: for though he understandeth, he will not answer. 20: Seest thou a man [that is] hasty in his words? [there is] more hope of a fool than of him. 21: He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child shall have him at length become [his] son. 22: An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression. 23: A man's pride shall bring him low: but honor shall uphold the humble in spirit. 24: Whoever is partner with a thief, hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and discloseth [it] not. 25: The fear of man bringeth a snare: but he who putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe. 26: Many seek the ruler's favor; but [every] man's judgment [cometh] from the LORD. 27: An unjust man [is] an abomination to the just: and [he that is] upright in the way [is] abomination to the wicked.
