   1: Proverbs of Solomon. A wise son causeth a father to rejoice, And a foolish son [is] an affliction to his mother.
   2: Treasures of wickedness profit not, And righteousness delivereth from death.
   3: Jehovah causeth not the soul of the righteous to hunger, And the desire of the wicked He thrusteth away.
   4: Poor [is] he who is working -- a slothful hand, And the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
   5: Whoso is gathering in summer [is] a wise son, Whoso is sleeping in harvest [is] a son causing shame.
   6: Blessings [are] for the head of the righteous, And the mouth of the wicked cover doth violence.
   7: The remembrance of the righteous [is] for a blessing, And the name of the wicked doth rot.
   8: The wise in heart accepteth commands, And a talkative fool kicketh.
   9: Whoso is walking in integrity walketh confidently, And whoso is perverting his ways is known.
   10: Whoso is winking the eye giveth grief, And a talkative fool kicketh.
   11: A fountain of life [is] the mouth of the righteous, And the mouth of the wicked cover doth violence.
   12: Hatred awaketh contentions, And over all transgressions love covereth.
   13: In the lips of the intelligent is wisdom found, And a rod [is] for the back of him who is lacking understanding.
   14: The wise lay up knowledge, and the mouth of a fool [is] near ruin.
   15: The wealth of the rich [is] his strong city, The ruin of the poor [is] their poverty.
   16: The wage of the righteous [is] for life, The increase of the wicked for sin.
   17: A traveller to life [is] he who is keeping instruction, And whoso is forsaking rebuke is erring.
   18: Whoso is covering hatred with lying lips, And whoso is bringing out an evil report is a fool.
   19: In the abundance of words transgression ceaseth not, And whoso is restraining his lips [is] wise.
   20: The tongue of the righteous [is] chosen silver, The heart of the wicked -- as a little thing.
   21: The lips of the righteous delight many, And fools for lack of heart die.
   22: The blessing of Jehovah -- it maketh rich, And He addeth no grief with it.
   23: To execute inventions [is] as play to a fool, And wisdom to a man of understanding.
   24: The feared thing of the wicked it meeteth him, And the desire of the righteous is given.
   25: As the passing by of a hurricane, So the wicked is not, And the righteous is a foundation age-during.
   26: As vinegar to the teeth, And as smoke to the eyes, So [is] the slothful to those sending him.
   27: The fear of Jehovah addeth days, And the years of the wicked are shortened.
   28: The hope of the righteous [is] joyful, And the expectation of the wicked perisheth.
   29: The way of Jehovah [is] strength to the perfect, And ruin to workers of iniquity.
   30: The righteous to the age is not moved, And the wicked inhabit not the earth.
   31: The mouth of the righteous uttereth wisdom, And the tongue of frowardness is cut out.
   32: The lips of the righteous know a pleasing thing, And the mouth of the wicked perverseness!
