Geneva Study Bible
   1: A wise son listens to his father's instruction, But a scoffer doesn't listen to rebuke.
   2: By the fruit of his lips, a man enjoys good things; But the unfaithful crave violence.
   3: He who guards his mouth guards his soul. One who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.
   4: The soul of the sluggard desires, and has nothing, But the desire of the diligent shall be fully satisfied.
   5: A righteous man hates lies, But a wicked man brings shame and disgrace.
   6: Righteousness guards the way of integrity, But wickedness overthrows the sinner.
   7: There are some who pretend to be rich, yet have nothing. There are some who pretend to be poor, yet have great wealth.
   8: The ransom of a man's life is his riches, But the poor hears no threats.
   9: The light of the righteous shines brightly, But the lamp of the wicked is snuffed out.
   10: By pride comes only quarrels, But with ones who take advice is wisdom.
   11: Wealth gained dishonestly dwindles away, But he who gathers by hand makes it grow.
   12: Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when longing is fulfilled, it is a tree of life.
   13: Whoever despises instruction will pay for it, But he who respects a command will be rewarded.
   14: The teaching of the wise is a spring of life, To turn from the snares of death.
   15: Good understanding wins favor; But the way of the unfaithful is hard.
   16: Every prudent man acts from knowledge, But a fool exposes folly.
   17: A wicked messenger falls into trouble, But a trustworthy envoy gains healing.
   18: Poverty and shame come to him who refuses discipline, But he who heeds correction shall be honored.
   19: Longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul, But fools detest turning from evil.
   20: One who walks with wise men grows wise, But a companion of fools suffers harm.
   21: Misfortune pursues sinners, But prosperity rewards the righteous.
   22: A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children, But the wealth of the sinner is stored for the righteous.
   23: An abundance of food is in poor people's fields, But injustice sweeps it away.
   24: One who spares the rod hates his son, But one who loves him is careful to discipline him.
   25: The righteous one eats to the satisfying of his soul, But the belly of the wicked goes hungry.
