1: Rivulets of waters [is] the heart of a king in the hand of Jehovah, Wherever He pleaseth He inclineth it. 2: Every way of a man [is] right in his own eyes, And Jehovah is pondering hearts. 3: To do righteousness and judgment, Is chosen of Jehovah rather than sacrifice. 4: Loftiness of eyes, and breadth of heart, Tillage of the wicked [is] sin. 5: The purposes of the diligent [are] only to advantage, And of every hasty one, only to want. 6: The making of treasures by a lying tongue, [Is] a vanity driven away of those seeking death. 7: The spoil of the wicked catcheth them, Because they have refused to do judgment. 8: Froward [is] the way of a man who is vile, And the pure -- upright [is] his work. 9: Better to sit on a corner of the roof, Than [with] a woman of contentions and a house of company. 10: The soul of the wicked hath desired evil, Not gracious in his eyes is his neighbour. 11: When the scorner is punished, the simple becometh wise, And in giving understanding to the wise He receiveth knowledge. 12: The Righteous One is acting wisely Towards the house of the wicked, He is overthrowing the wicked for wickedness. 13: Whoso is shutting his ear from the cry of the poor, He also doth cry, and is not answered. 14: A gift in secret pacifieth anger, And a bribe in the bosom strong fury. 15: To do justice [is] joy to the righteous, But ruin to workers of iniquity. 16: A man who is wandering from the way of understanding, In an assembly of Rephaim resteth. 17: Whoso [is] loving mirth [is] a poor man, Whoso is loving wine and oil maketh no wealth. 18: The wicked [is] an atonement for the righteous, And for the upright the treacherous dealer. 19: Better to dwell in a wilderness land, Than [with] a woman of contentions and anger. 20: A treasure to be desired, and oil, [Is] in the habitation of the wise, And a foolish man swalloweth it up. 21: Whoso is pursuing righteousness and kindness, Findeth life, righteousness, and honour. 22: A city of the mighty hath the wise gone up, And bringeth down the strength of its confidence. 23: Whoso is keeping his mouth and his tongue, Is keeping from adversities his soul. 24: Proud, haughty, scorner [is] his name, Who is working in the wrath of pride. 25: The desire of the slothful slayeth him, For his hands have refused to work. 26: All the day desiring he hath desired, And the righteous giveth and withholdeth not. 27: The sacrifice of the wicked [is] abomination, Much more when in wickedness he bringeth it. 28: A false witness doth perish, And an attentive man for ever speaketh. 29: A wicked man hath hardened by his face, And the upright -- he prepareth his way. 30: There is no wisdom, nor understanding, Nor counsel, over-against Jehovah. 31: A horse is prepared for a day of battle, And the deliverance [is] of Jehovah!
