Geneva Study Bible
   1: An unfriendly man pursues selfishness, And defies all sound judgment.
   2: A fool has no delight in understanding, But only in broadcasting his own opinion.
   3: When wickedness comes, contempt also comes, And with shame comes disgrace.
   4: The words of a man's mouth are like deep waters. The fountain of wisdom is like a flowing brook.
   5: To be partial to the faces of the wicked is not good, Nor to deprive the innocent of justice.
   6: A fool's lips come into strife, And his mouth invites beatings.
   7: A fool's mouth is his destruction, And his lips are a snare to his soul.
   8: The words of a gossip are like dainty morsels: They go down into a person's innermost parts.
   9: One who is slack in his work Is brother to him who is a master of destruction.
   10: The name of Yahweh is a strong tower: The righteous run to him, and are safe.
   11: The rich man's wealth is his strong city, Like an unscalable wall in his own imagination.
   12: Before destruction the heart of man is proud, But before honor is humility.
   13: He who gives answer before he hears, That is folly and shame to him.
   14: A man's spirit will sustain him in sickness, But a crushed spirit who can bear?
   15: The heart of the discerning gets knowledge. The ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
   16: A man's gift makes room for him, And brings him before great men.
   17: He who pleads his cause first seems right; Until another comes and questions him.
   18: The lot settles disputes, And keeps strong ones apart.
   19: A brother offended is more difficult than a fortified city; And disputes are like the bars of a castle.
   20: A man's stomach is filled with the fruit of his mouth. With the harvest of his lips he is satisfied.
   21: Death and life are in the power of the tongue; Those who love it will eat its fruit.
   22: Whoever finds a wife finds a good thing, And obtains favor of Yahweh.
   23: The poor pleads for mercy, But the rich answers harshly.
   24: A man of many companions may be ruined, But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
