Proverbs
14
1 Every wise 2454 woman 802 buildeth 1129 her house 1004: but the foolish 200 plucketh 2040 it down 8045 with her hands 3027.
2 He that walketh 1980 in his uprightness 3476 feareth 3373 the LORD 3068: but he that is perverse 3868 in his ways 1870 despiseth 959 him.
3 In the mouth 6310 of the foolish 191 is a rod 2415 of pride 1346: but the lips 8193 of the wise 2450 shall preserve 8104 them.
4 Where no 369 oxen 5091 are, the crib 18 is clean 1249: but much 7230 increase 8393 is by the strength 3581 of the ox 7794.
5 A faithful 529 witness 5707 will not lie 3576: but a false 8267 witness 5707 will utter 6315 lies 3576.
6 A scorner 3887 seeketh 1245 wisdom 2451, and findeth it not: but knowledge 1847 is easy 7043 unto him that understandeth 995.
7 Go 3212 from the presence 5048 of a foolish 3684 man 376, when thou perceivest 3045 not in him the lips 8193 of knowledge 1847.
8 The wisdom 2451 of the prudent 6175 is to understand 995 his way 1870: but the folly 200 of fools 3684 is deceit 4820.
9 Fools 191 make a mock 3887 at sin 817: but among 996 the righteous 3477 there is favour 7522.
10 The heart 3820 knoweth 3045 his own 5315 bitterness 4751; and a stranger 2114 doth not intermeddle 6148 with his joy 8057.
11 The house 1004 of the wicked 7563 shall be overthrown 8045: but the tabernacle 168 of the upright 3477 shall flourish 6524.
12 There is a way 1870 which seemeth 6440 right 3477 unto a man 376, but the end 319 thereof are the ways 1870 of death 4194.
13 Even 1571 in laughter 7814 the heart 3820 is sorrowful 3510; and the end 319 of that mirth 8057 is heaviness 8424.
14 The backslider 5472 in heart 3820 shall be filled 7646 with his own ways 1870: and a good 2896 man 376 shall be satisfied from himself.
15 The simple 6612 believeth 539 every 3605 word 1697: but the prudent 6175 man looketh 995 well 995 to his going 838.
16 A wise 2450 man feareth 3373, and departeth 5493 from evil 7451: but the fool 3684 rageth 5674, and is confident 982.
17 He that is soon 7116 angry 639 dealeth 6213 foolishly 200: and a man 376 of wicked 4209 devices 4209 is hated 8130.
18 The simple 6612 inherit 5157 folly 200: but the prudent 6175 are crowned 3803 with knowledge 1847.
19 The evil 7451 bow 7817 before 6440 the good 2896; and the wicked 7563 at the gates 8179 of the righteous 6662.
20 The poor 7326 is hated 8130 even 1571 of his own neighbour 7453: but the rich 6223 hath many 7227 friends 157.
21 He that despiseth 936 his neighbour 7453 sinneth 2398: but he that hath mercy 2603 on the poor, happy 835 is he.
22 Do they not err 8582 that devise 2790 evil 7451? but mercy 2617 and truth 571 shall be to them that devise 2790 good 2896.
23 In all 3605 labour 6089 there is profit 4195: but the talk 1697 of the lips 8193 tendeth only 389 to penury 4270.
24 The crown 5850 of the wise 2450 is their riches 6239: but the foolishness 200 of fools 3684 is folly 200.
25 A true 571 witness 5707 delivereth 5337 souls 5315: but a deceitful 4820 witness speaketh 6315 lies 3576.
26 In the fear 3374 of the LORD 3068 is strong 5797 confidence 4009: and his children 1121 shall have 1961 a place of refuge 4268.
27 The fear 3374 of the LORD 3068 is a fountain 4726 of life 2416, to depart 5493 from the snares 4170 of death 4194.
28 In the multitude 7230 of people 5971 is the king's 4428 honour 1927: but in the want 657 of people 3816 is the destruction 4288 of the prince 7333.
29 He that is slow 750 to wrath 639 is of great 7227 understanding 8394: but he that is hasty 7116 of spirit 7307 exalteth 7311 folly 200.
30 A sound 4832 heart 3820 is the life 2416 of the flesh 1320: but envy 7068 the rottenness 7538 of the bones 6106.
31 He that oppresseth 6231 the poor 1800 reproacheth 2778 his Maker 6213: but he that honoureth 3513 him hath mercy 2603 on the poor 34.
32 The wicked 7563 is driven 1760 away in his wickedness 7451: but the righteous 6662 hath hope 2620 in his death 4194.
33 Wisdom 2451 resteth 5117 in the heart 3820 of him that hath understanding 995: but that which is in the midst 7130 of fools 3684 is made known 3045.
34 Righteousness 6666 exalteth 7311 a nation 1471: but sin 2403 is a reproach 2617 to any people 3816.
35 The king's 4428 favour 7522 is toward a wise 7919 servant 5650: but his wrath 5678 is against him that causeth shame 954.
