Geneva Study Bible
   1: The plans of the heart belong to man, But the answer of the tongue is from Yahweh.
   2: All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; But Yahweh weighs the motives.
   3: Commit your deeds to Yahweh, And your plans shall succeed.
   4: Yahweh has made everything for its own end -- Yes, even the wicked for the day of evil.
   5: Everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to Yahweh: They shall assuredly not be unpunished.
   6: By mercy and truth iniquity is atoned for. By the fear of Yahweh men depart from evil.
   7: When a man's ways please Yahweh, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
   8: Better is a little with righteousness, Than great revenues with injustice.
   9: A man's heart plans his course, But Yahweh directs his steps.
   10: Inspired judgments are on the lips of the king. He shall not betray his mouth.
   11: Honest balances and scales are Yahweh's; All the weights in the bag are his work.
   12: It is an abomination for kings to do wrong, For the throne is established by righteousness.
   13: Righteous lips are the delight of kings. They value one who speaks the truth.
   14: The king's wrath is a messenger of death, But a wise man will pacify it.
   15: In the light of the king's face is life. His favor is like a cloud of the spring rain.
   16: How much better it is to get wisdom than gold! Yes, to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.
   17: The highway of the upright is to depart from evil. He who keeps his way preserves his soul.
   18: Pride goes before destruction, A haughty spirit before a fall.
   19: It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poor, Than to divide the plunder with the proud.
   20: He who gives heed to the Word finds prosperity. Whoever trusts in Yahweh is blessed.
   21: The wise in heart shall be called prudent. Pleasantness of the lips promotes instruction.
   22: Understanding is a fountain of life to one who has it, But the punishment of fools is their folly.
   23: The heart of the wise instructs his mouth, And adds learning to his lips.
   24: Pleasant words are a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
   25: There is a way which seems right to a man, But in the end it leads to death.
   26: The appetite of the laboring man labors for him; For his mouth urges him on.
   27: A worthless man devises mischief. His speech is like a scorching fire.
   28: A perverse man stirs up strife. A whisperer separates close friends.
   29: A man of violence entices his neighbor, And leads him in a way that is not good.
   30: One who winks his eyes to plot perversities, One who compresses his lips, is bent on evil.
   31: Gray hair is a crown of glory. It is attained by a life of righteousness.
   32: One who is slow to anger is better than the mighty; One who rules his spirit, than he who takes a city.
   33: The lot is cast into the lap, But its every decision is from Yahweh.
