1 Proverbs of Solomon. A wise son will gladden a father: and a son of the foolish will grieve his mother.
3 Jehovah will not cause the soul of the just one to hunger: and he will thrust away the desire of the unjust
5 He gathering in summer, is a prudent son: he lying in deep sleep in harvest, a son causing shame.
11 A fountain of life the mouth of the just one: and violence shall cover the mouth of the unjust
13 In the lips of him understanding, wisdom shall be found: and a rod for the back of him wanting heart
19 In the multitude of words transgression shall not cease: and he withholding his lips is prudent
24 The fear of the unjust one it shall come to him: and the desire of the just shall be given.
25 As the whirlwind passing away the unjust one is not: and the just one a foundation forever.
26 As vinegar to the teeth and as smoke to the eyes, so is the slothful one to those sending him.
29 The way of Jehovah is a fortress to the upright one: and destruction to those doing iniquity.
31 The mouth of the just one shall germinate wisdom: and the tongue of perverseness shall be cut off.
