|<< Proverbs 12 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
He that loves discipline loves knowledge, and he that hates reproof is a fool.
2It will be well for the man who keeps the will of Lord Jehovah and an evil man will be condemned.
3A son of man will not be established in evil, and the root of the righteous will not move.
4A valiant wife is the crown of her husband, and as a boring worm in wood, the woman that does evil things destroys a husband.
5The purposes of the righteous are justice, and the way of life of the evil is deceit.
6The words of the evil lie in ambush for blood, and the mouth of the upright delivers them.
7The evil will be overthrown and they will not be found, and the house of the righteous will be established.
8The children of men praise the mouth of understanding and he who lacks his reasoning will be despised.
9Better is a poor man who waits on himself than one who boasts and lacks bread.
10The righteous one is aware of the soul of his animal, and the evil withhold their compassions.
11He that cultivates the soil will be filled with bread, and he that runs after futility is devoid of reason.
12The evil one lusts to do evil, and the root of the righteous ones will sprout.
13The evil one is caught in the evil of his lips and the righteous escapes from trouble.
14A man will be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth and every son of man is rewarded according to the work of his hands.
15The way of the fool is beautiful in his eyes, and he that listens to counsel is wise.
16A fool immediately makes his wrath known and a cunning one hides his insult.
17The righteous speaks obvious trustworthiness and the testimony of the evil is deceit.
18There are those that speak a stabbing sword, but the tongue of the wise heals.
19The lips of truth are right, and the hasty witness does evil with his tongue.

26The righteous gives good counsel to his friend and the way of the evil will mislead them.
27Prey will not be taken for the deceitful man, but the precious possession of a man is choice.
28In the way of righteousness is life, and the way of the angry is unto death.
