Geneva Study Bible
   1: Of man [are] arrangements of the heart, And from Jehovah an answer of the tongue.
   2: All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, And Jehovah is pondering the spirits.
   3: Roll unto Jehovah thy works, And established are thy purposes,
   4: All things hath Jehovah wrought for Himself, And also the wicked [worketh] for a day of evil.
   5: An abomination to Jehovah [is] every proud one of heart, Hand to hand he is not acquitted.
   6: In kindness and truth pardoned is iniquity, And in the fear of Jehovah Turn thou aside from evil.
   7: When a man's ways please Jehovah, even his enemies, He causeth to be at peace with him.
   8: Better [is] a little with righteousness, Than abundance of increase without justice.
   9: The heart of man deviseth his way, And Jehovah establisheth his step.
   10: An oath [is] on the lips of a king, In judgment his mouth trespasseth not.
   11: A just beam and balances [are] Jehovah's, His work [are] all the stones of the bag.
   12: An abomination to kings [is] doing wickedness, For by righteousness is a throne established.
   13: The delight of kings [are] righteous lips, And whoso is speaking uprightly he loveth,
   14: The fury of a king [is] messengers of death, And a wise man pacifieth it.
   15: In the light of a king's face [is] life, And his good-will [is] as a cloud of the latter rain.
   16: To get wisdom -- how much better than gold, And to get understanding to be chosen than silver!
   17: A highway of the upright [is], 'Turn from evil,' Whoso is preserving his soul is watching his way.
   18: Before destruction [is] pride, And before stumbling -- a haughty spirit.'
   19: Better is humility of spirit with the poor, Than to apportion spoil with the proud.
   20: The wise in any matter findeth good, And whoso is trusting in Jehovah, O his happiness.
   21: To the wise in heart is called, 'Intelligent,' And sweetness of lips increaseth learning.
   22: A fountain of life [is] understanding to its possessors, The instruction of fools is folly.
   23: The heart of the wise causeth his mouth to act wisely, And by his lips he increaseth learning,
   24: Sayings of pleasantness [are] a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul, and healing to the bone.
   25: There is a way right before a man, And its latter end -- ways of death.
   26: A labouring man hath laboured for himself, For his mouth hath caused [him] to bend over it.
   27: A worthless man is preparing evil, And on his lips -- as a burning fire.
   28: A froward man sendeth forth contention, A tale-bearer is separating a familiar friend.
   29: A violent man enticeth his neighbour, And hath causeth him to go in a way not good.
   30: Consulting his eyes to devise froward things, Moving his lips he hath accomplished evil.
   31: A crown of beauty [are] grey hairs, In the way of righteousness it is found.
   32: Better [is] the slow to anger than the mighty, And the ruler over his spirit than he who is taking a city.
   33: Into the centre is the lot cast, And from Jehovah [is] all its judgment!
