1 He loving instruction loved knowledge: and he hating reproof, is stupid.
2 The good shall obtain acceptance from Jehovah: and the man of mischief he will condemn.
3 A man shall not be prepared by injustice: and the root of the Just shall not be moved.
4 A woman of strength is a crown to her husband: and she causing shame, as rottenness in his bones.
5 The purposes of the just are judgment: the guidance of the unjust, deceit
6 The words of the unjust are the lying in wait of blood: and the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.
7 The unjust are overthrown, and they are not: and the house of the just shall stand.
8 According to the mouth of understanding a man shall be praised: and he being perverse of heart shall be for contempt
9 He is good being despised, and a servant to him above him, honoring himself, and wanting bread.
10 The just one shall know the soul of his cattle: and the compassion of the unjust are cruel.
11 He working his earth shall be filled with bread: and he pursuing vain things wanted heart.
12 The unjust one desired the net of the evil: and the root of the just will give.
13 In the transgression of the lips is the snare of evil: and the just one shall come forth out of straits.
14 From the fruit of the mouth a man shall be satisfied with good: and the reward of the hands of a man shall be good to him.
15 The way of the foolish is right in his eyes: and the wise one heard to counsel.
16 The foolish one in the day shall make known his anger: but the prudent one covered dishonor.
17 He breathing out faithfulness will announce justice: and a witness of falsehoods, deceit
18 There is he talking idly as the piercings of the sword: and the tongue of the wise is healing.
19 The lip of truth shall be prepared forever: and the tongue of falsehood while I shall wink.
20 Deceit in the heart of those devising evil: and joy to those counseling peace.
21 No iniquity shall approach to the just one: and the unjust were filled with evil.
22 Lips of falsehood an abomination of Jehovah: and they doing faithfulness his delight
23 A prudent man covered knowledge: and the heart of the foolish will meet folly.
24 The hand of the active shall give dominion: and of the slothful one shall be for tribute.
25 Fear in the heart of a man will bow it down: and a good word will gladden it
26 The just excelled above his neighbor: and the way of the unjust shall lead them astray.
27 The slothful one shall not ensnare his hunting: and the substance of the active man is precious.
28 In the way of justice is life; and the way of its beaten path not death.
