Geneva Study Bible
   1: A good name is more desirable than great riches; Loving favor rather than silver and gold.
   2: The rich and the poor have this in common: Yahweh is the maker of them all.
   3: A prudent man sees danger, and hides himself; But the simple pass on, and suffer for it.
   4: The result of humility and the fear of Yahweh Is wealth, honor, and life.
   5: Thorns and snares are in the path of the wicked: Whoever guards his soul stays from them.
   6: Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.
   7: The rich rules over the poor. The borrower is servant to the lender.
   8: He who sows wickedness reaps trouble, And the rod of his fury will be destroyed.
   9: He who has a generous eye will be blessed; For he shares his food with the poor.
   10: Drive out the mocker, and strife will go out; Yes, quarrels and insults will stop.
   11: He who loves purity of heart and speaks gracefully Is the king's friend.
   12: The eyes of Yahweh watch over knowledge; But he frustrates the words of the unfaithful.
   13: The sluggard says, "There is a lion outside! I will be killed in the streets!"
   14: The mouth of an adulteress is a deep pit: He who is under Yahweh's wrath will fall into it.
   15: Folly is bound up in the heart of a child: The rod of discipline drives it far from him.
   16: Whoever oppresses the poor for his own increase and whoever gives to the rich, Both come to poverty.
   17: Turn your ear, and listen to the words of the wise. Apply your heart to my teaching.
   18: For it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you, If all of them are ready on your lips.
   19: That your trust may be in Yahweh, I teach you today, even you.
   20: Haven't I written to you thirty excellent things Of counsel and knowledge,
   21: To teach you truth, reliable words, To give sound answers to the ones who sent you?
   22: Don't exploit the poor, because he is poor; And don't crush the needy in court;
   23: For Yahweh will plead their case, And plunder the life of those who plunder them.
   24: Don't befriend a hot-tempered man, And don't associate with one who harbors anger:
   25: Lest you learn his ways, And ensnare your soul.
   26: Don't you be one of those who strike hands, Of those who are collateral for debts.
   27: If you don't have means to pay, Why should he take away your bed from under you?
   28: Don't move the ancient boundary stone, Which your fathers have set up.
   29: Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will serve kings; He won't serve obscure men.
