Solomon's Proverbs: The Wise Son

1{2}Treasures of wickedness shall profit nothing: but justice shall deliver from death.

2{3}The Lord will not afflict the soul of the just with famine, and he will disappoint the deceitful practices of the wicked.

3{4}The slothful hand hath wrought poverty: but the hand of the industrious getteth riches. He that trusteth to lies feedeth the winds: and the same runneth after birds, that fly away.

4{5}He that gathereth in the harvest, is a wise son: but he that snorteth in the summer, is the son of confusion.

5{6}The blessing of the Lord is upon the head of the just: but iniquity covereth the mouth of the wicked.

6{7}The memory of the just is with praises: and the name of the wicked shall rot.

7{8}The wise of heart receiveth precepts: a fool is beaten with lips.

8{9}He that walketh sincerely, walketh confidently: but he that perverteth his ways, shall be manifest.

9{10}He that winketh with the eye, shall cause sorrow: and the foolish in lips shall be beaten.

10{11}The mouth of the just is a vein of life: and the mouth of the wicked covereth iniquity.

11{12}Hatred stirreth up strifes: and charity covereth all sins.

12{13}In the lips of the wise is wisdom found: and a rod on the back of him that wanteth sense.

13{14}Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the fool is next to confusion.

14{15}The substance of a rich man is the city of his strength: the fear of the poor is their poverty.

15{16}The work of the just is unto life: but the fruit of the wicked unto sin.

16{17}The way of life, to him that observeth correction: but he that forsaketh reproofs, goeth astray.

17{18}Lying lips hide hatred: he that uttereth reproach, is foolish.

18{19}In the multitude of words there shall not want sin: but he that refraineth his lips, is most wise.

19{20}The tongue of the just is as choice silver: but the heart of the wicked is nothing worth.

20{21}The lips of the just teach many: but they that are ignorant, shall die in the want of understanding.

21{22}The blessing of the Lord maketh men rich: neither shall affliction be joined to them.

22{23}A fool worketh mischief as it were for sport: but wisdom is prudence to a man.

23{24}That which the wicked feareth, shall come upon him: to the just their desire shall be given.

24{25}As a tempest that passeth, so the wicked shall be no more: but the just is as an everlasting foundation.

25{26}As vinegar to the teeth, and smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that sent him.

26{27}The fear of the Lord shall prolong days: and the years of the wicked shall be shortened.

27{28}The expectation of the just is joy: but the hope of the wicked shall perish.

28{29}The strength of the upright is the way of the Lord: and fear to them that work evil.

29{30}The just shall never be moved: but the wicked shall not dwell on the earth.

30{31}The mouth of the just shall bring forth wisdom: the tongue of the perverse shall perish.

31{32}The lips of the just consider what is acceptable: and the mouth of the wicked uttereth perverse things.

32{11:1}A deceitful balance is an abomination before the Lord: and a just weight is his will.
