Geneva Study Bible
   1: A name is chosen rather than much wealth, Than silver and than gold -- good grace.
   2: Rich and poor have met together, The Maker of them all [is] Jehovah.
   3: The prudent hath seen the evil, and is hidden, And the simple have passed on, and are punished.
   4: The end of humility [is] the fear of Jehovah, Riches, and honour, and life.
   5: Thorns -- snares [are] in the way of the perverse, Whoso is keeping his soul is far from them.
   6: Give instruction to a youth about his way, Even when he is old he turneth not from it.
   7: The rich over the poor ruleth, And a servant [is] the borrower to the lender.
   8: Whoso is sowing perverseness reapeth sorrow, And the rod of his anger weareth out.
   9: The good of eye -- he is blessed, For he hath given of his bread to the poor.
   10: Cast out a scorner -- and contention goeth out, And strife and shame cease.
   11: Whoso is loving cleanness of heart, Grace [are] his lips, a king [is] his friend.
   12: The eyes of Jehovah have kept knowledge, And He overthroweth the words of the treacherous.
   13: The slothful hath said, 'A lion [is] without, In the midst of the broad places I am slain.'
   14: A deep pit [is] the mouth of strange women, The abhorred of Jehovah falleth there.
   15: Folly is bound up in the heart of a youth, The rod of chastisement putteth it far from him.
   16: He is oppressing the poor to multiply to him, He is giving to the rich -- only to want.
   17: Incline thine ear, and hear words of the wise, And thy heart set to my knowledge,
   18: For they are pleasant when thou dost keep them in thy heart, They are prepared together for thy lips.
   19: That thy trust may be in Jehovah, I caused thee to know to-day, even thou.
   20: Have I not written to thee three times With counsels and knowledge?
   21: To cause thee to know the certainty of sayings of truth, To return sayings of truth to those sending thee.
   22: Rob not the poor because he [is] poor, And bruise not the afflicted in the gate.
   23: For Jehovah pleadeth their cause, And hath spoiled the soul of their spoilers.
   24: Shew not thyself friendly with an angry man, And with a man of fury go not in,
   25: Lest thou learn his paths, And have received a snare to thy soul.
   26: Be not thou among those striking hands, Among sureties [for] burdens.
   27: If thou hast nothing to pay, Why doth he take thy bed from under thee?
   28: Remove not a border of olden times, That thy fathers have made.
   29: Hast thou seen a man speedy in his business? Before kings he doth station himself, He stations not himself before obscure men!
