[[1]] ¶ Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise. [2] The fear of a king is as the roaring of a lion: whoso provoketh him to anger sinneth against his own soul. [3] It is an honour for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling. [4] The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing. [5] Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it out. [6] Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find? [7] The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him. [8] A king that sitteth in the throne of judgment scattereth away all evil with his eyes. [9] Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin? [10] Divers weights, and divers measures, both of them are alike abomination to the LORD. [11] Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right. [12] The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them. [13] Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread. [14] It is naught, it is naught, saith the buyer: but when he is gone his way, then he boasteth. [15] There is gold, and a multitude of rubies: but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel. [16] Take his garment that is surety for a stranger: and take a pledge of him for a strange woman. [17] Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel. [18] Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war. [19] He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips. [20] Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness. [21] An inheritance may be gotten hastily at the beginning; but the end thereof shall not be blessed. [22] Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee. [23] Divers weights are an abomination unto the LORD; and a false balance is not good. [24] Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way? [25] It is a snare to the man who devoureth that which is holy, and after vows to make inquiry. [26] A wise king scattereth the wicked, and bringeth the wheel over them. [27] The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly. [28] Mercy and truth preserve the king: and his throne is upholden by mercy. [29] The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the gray head. [30] The blueness of a wound cleanseth away evil: so do stripes the inward parts of the belly.
