Geneva Study Bible
   1: A soft answer turneth back fury, And a grievous word raiseth up anger.
   2: The tongue of the wise maketh knowledge good, And the mouth of fools uttereth folly.
   3: In every place are the eyes of Jehovah, Watching the evil and the good.
   4: A healed tongue [is] a tree of life, And perverseness in it -- a breach in the spirit.
   5: A fool despiseth the instruction of his father, And whoso is regarding reproof is prudent.
   6: [In] the house of the righteous [is] abundant strength, And in the increase of the wicked -- trouble.
   7: The lips of the wise scatter knowledge, And the heart of fools [is] not right.
   8: The sacrifice of the wicked [is] an abomination to Jehovah, And the prayer of the upright [is] His delight.
   9: An abomination to Jehovah [is] the way of the wicked, And whoso is pursuing righteousness He loveth.
   10: Chastisement [is] grievous to him who is forsaking the path, Whoso is hating reproof dieth.
   11: Sheol and destruction [are] before Jehovah, Surely also the hearts of the sons of men.
   12: A scorner loveth not his reprover, Unto the wise he goeth not.
   13: A joyful heart maketh glad the face, And by grief of heart is the spirit smitten.
   14: The heart of the intelligent seeketh knowledge, And the mouth of fools enjoyeth folly.
   15: All the days of the afflicted [are] evil, And gladness of heart [is] a perpetual banquet.
   16: Better [is] a little with the fear of Jehovah, Than much treasure, and tumult with it.
   17: Better [is] an allowance of green herbs and love there, Than a fatted ox, and hatred with it.
   18: A man of fury stirreth up contention, And the slow to anger appeaseth strife.
   19: The way of the slothful [is] as a hedge of briers, And the path of the upright is raised up.
   20: A wise son rejoiceth a father. And a foolish man is despising his mother.
   21: Folly is joy to one lacking heart, And a man of intelligence directeth [his] going.
   22: Without counsel [is] the making void of purposes, And in a multitude of counsellors it is established.
   23: Joy [is] to a man in the answer of his mouth, And a word in its season -- how good!
   24: A path of life [is] on high for the wise, To turn aside from Sheol beneath.
   25: The house of the proud Jehovah pulleth down, And He setteth up the border of the widow.
   26: An abomination to Jehovah [are] thoughts of wickedness, And pure [are] sayings of pleasantness.
   27: A dishonest gainer is troubling his house, And whoso is hating gifts liveth.
   28: The heart of the righteous meditateth to answer, And the mouth of the wicked uttereth evil things.
   29: Far [is] Jehovah from the wicked, And the prayer of the righteous He heareth.
   30: The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart, A good report maketh fat the bone.
   31: An ear that is hearing the reproof of life Doth lodge among the wise.
   32: Whoso is refusing instruction is despising his soul, And whoso is hearing reproof Is getting understanding.
   33: The fear of Jehovah [is] the instruction of wisdom, And before honour [is] humility!
