7, Proverbs 13-15

Proverbs 13

1 A wise son heareth his father’s instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke. 4 I
2 A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence. 5 I
3 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction. 7 I
4 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat. 7 I
5 A righteous man hateth lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame. 5 I
6 Righteousness keepeth him that is upright in the way: but wickedness overthroweth the sinner. 12 I
7 There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches. 2 I
8 The ransom of a man’s life are his riches: but the poor heareth not rebuke. 2 I
9 The light of the righteous rejoiceth: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out. 11 I
10 Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom. 12 I
11 Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase. 5 I
12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. 5 I
13 Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded. 14 I
14 The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. 7 I
15 Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard. 5 I
16 Every prudent man dealeth with knowledge: but a fool layeth open his folly. 2 I
17 A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health. 2 I
18 Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured. 5 I
19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil. 7 I
20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. 13 I
21 Evil pursueth sinners: but to the righteous good shall be repayed. 9 I
22 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just. 9 I
23 Much food is in the tillage of the poor: but there is that is destroyed for want of judgment.
24 He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes. 3 I
25 The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want.


Proverbs 14

1 Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands. 7 I
2 He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the Lord: but he that is perverse in his ways despiseth him. 7 I
3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them. 5 I
4 Where no oxen are, the crib is clean: but much increase is by the strength of the ox. 2 I
5 A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies. 2 I
6 A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth. 4 I
7 Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.
8 The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way: but the folly of fools is deceit. 5 I
9 Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour. 4 I
10 The heart knoweth his own bitterness; and a stranger doth not intermeddle with his joy. 4 I
11 The house of the wicked shall be overthrown: but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish. 5 I
12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. 16 I
13 Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; and the end of that mirth is heaviness. 6 I
14 The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself. 2 I
15 The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going. 7 I
16 A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident. 7 I
17 He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly: and a man of wicked devices is hated. 9 I
18 The simple inherit folly: but the prudent are crowned with knowledge. 5 I
19 The evil bow before the good; and the wicked at the gates of the righteous. 8 I
20 The poor is hated even of his own neighbour: but the rich hath many friends.
21 He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth: but he that hath mercy on the poor, happy is he. 10 I
22 Do they not err that devise evil? but mercy and truth shall be to them that devise good. 5 I
23 In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury. 2 I
24 The crown of the wise is their riches: but the foolishness of fools is folly. 2 I
25 A true witness delivereth souls: but a deceitful witness speaketh lies. 6 I
26 In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge. 14 I
27 The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. 17 I
28 In the multitude of people is the king’s honour: but in the want of people is the destruction of the prince.
29 He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly. 16 I
30 A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones. 20 I
31 He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor. 14 I
32 The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: but the righteous hath hope in his death. 12 I
33 Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding: but that which is in the midst of fools is made known.
34 Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. 10 I
35 The king’s favour is toward a wise servant: but his wrath is against him that causeth shame.


Proverbs 15

1 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. 15 I
2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness. 9 I
3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. 23 I
4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit. 15 I
5 A fool despiseth his father’s instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent. 2 I
6 In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble. 2 I
7 The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so. 4 I
8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord: but the prayer of the upright is his delight. 11 I
9 The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the Lord: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness. 10 I
10 Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die. 3 I
11 Hell and destruction are before the Lord: how much more then the hearts of the children of men? 2 I
12 A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him: neither will he go unto the wise. 2 I
13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. 28 I
14 The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness. 7 I
15 All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast. 10 I
16 Better is little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble therewith. 16 I
17 Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith. 33 I
18 A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife. 11 I
19 The way of the slothful man is as an hedge of thorns: but the way of the righteous is made plain. 8 I
20 A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish man despiseth his mother. 9 I
21 Folly is joy to him that is destitute of wisdom: but a man of understanding walketh uprightly. 2 I
22 Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.
23 A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it! 17 I
24 The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath. 9 I
25 The Lord will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow. 2 I
26 The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord: but the words of the pure are pleasant words. 7 I
27 He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live. 6 I
28 The heart of the righteous studieth to answer: but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things. 9 I
29 The Lord is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous. 14 I
30 The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart: and a good report maketh the bones fat. 18 I
31 The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise. 11 I
32 He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding. 9 I
33 The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility. 16 I
