Geneva Study Bible
   1: Don't you be envious against evil men; Neither desire to be with them:
   2: For their hearts plot violence, And their lips talk about mischief.
   3: Through wisdom a house is built; By understanding it is established;
   4: By knowledge the rooms are filled With all rare and beautiful treasure.
   5: A wise man has great power; And a knowledgeable man increases strength;
   6: For by wise guidance you wage your war; And victory is in many advisors.
   7: Wisdom is too high for a fool: He doesn't open his mouth in the gate.
   8: One who plots to do evil Will be called a schemer.
   9: The schemes of folly are sin. The mocker is detested by men.
   10: If you falter in the time of trouble, Your strength is small.
   11: Rescue those who are being led away to death! Indeed, hold back those who are staggering to the slaughter!
   12: If you say, "Behold, we didn't know this;" Doesn't he who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps your soul, doesn't he know it? Shall he not render to every man according to his work?
   13: My son, eat honey, for it is good; The droppings of the honeycomb, which are sweet to your taste:
   14: So you shall know wisdom to be to your soul; If you have found it, then will there be a reward, Your hope will not be cut off.
   15: Don't lay in wait, wicked man, against the habitation of the righteous. Don't destroy his resting-place:
   16: For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises up again; But the wicked are overthrown by calamity.
   17: Don't rejoice when your enemy falls. Don't let your heart be glad when he is overthrown;
   18: Lest Yahweh see it, and it displease him, And he turn away his wrath from him.
   19: Don't fret yourself because of evildoers; Neither be envious of the wicked:
   20: For there will be no reward to the evil man; And the lamp of the wicked shall be snuffed out.
   21: My son, fear Yahweh and the king. Don't join those who are rebellious:
   22: For their calamity will rise suddenly; The destruction from them both -- who knows?
   23: These also are sayings of the wise. To show partiality in judgment is not good.
   24: He who says to the wicked, "You are righteous;" Peoples shall curse him, and nations shall abhor him --
   25: But it will go well with those who convict the guilty, And a rich blessing will come on them.
   26: An honest answer Is like a kiss on the lips.
   27: Prepare your work outside. Make it ready for you in the field. Afterwards, build your house.
   28: Don't be a witness against your neighbor without cause. Don't deceive with your lips.
   29: Don't say, "I will do to him as he has done to me; I will render to the man according to his work."
   30: I went by the field of the sluggard, By the vineyard of the man void of understanding;
   31: Behold, it was all grown over with thorns. Its surface was covered with nettles, And its stone wall was broken down.
   32: Then I saw, and considered well. I saw, and received instruction:
   33: A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep;
   34: So shall your poverty come as a robber, And your want as an armed man.
