Chapter 10

1

 

 The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son [is] the heaviness of his mother. 

 

 


2

 

 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death. 

 

 


3

 

 The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked. 

 

 


4

 

 He becometh poor that dealeth [with] a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich. 

 

 


5

 

 He that gathereth in summer [is] a wise son: [but] he that sleepeth in harvest [is] a son that causeth shame. 

 

 


6

 

 Blessings [are] upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked. 

 

 


7

 

 The memory of the just [is] blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot. 

 

 


8

 

 The wise in heart will receive commandments: but a prating fool shall fall. 

 

 


9

 

 He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known. 

 

 


10

 

 He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a prating fool shall fall. 

 

 


11

 

 The mouth of a righteous [man is] a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked. 

 

 


12

 

 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins. 

 

 


13

 

 In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod [is] for the back of him that is void of understanding. 

 

 


14

 

 Wise [men] lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish [is] near destruction. 

 

 


15

 

 The rich man's wealth [is] his strong city: the destruction of the poor [is] their poverty. 

 

 


16

 

 The labour of the righteous [tendeth] to life: the fruit of the wicked to sin. 

 

 


17

 

 He [is in] the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth. 

 

 


18

 

 He that hideth hatred [with] lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, [is] a fool. 

 

 


19

 

 In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips [is] wise. 

 

 


20

 

 The tongue of the just [is as] choice silver: the heart of the wicked [is] little worth. 

 

 


21

 

 The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom. 

 

 


22

 

 The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. 

 

 


23

 

 [It is] as sport to a fool to do mischief: but a man of understanding hath wisdom. 

 

 


24

 

 The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him: but the desire of the righteous shall be granted. 

 

 


25

 

 As the whirlwind passeth, so [is] the wicked no [more]: but the righteous [is] an everlasting foundation. 

 

 


26

 

 As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so [is] the sluggard to them that send him. 

 

 


27

 

 The fear of the LORD prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened. 

 

 


28

 

 The hope of the righteous [shall be] gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish. 

 

 


29

 

 The way of the LORD [is] strength to the upright: but destruction [shall be] to the workers of iniquity. 

 

 


30

 

 The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth. 

 

 


31

 

 The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be cut out. 

 

 


32

 

 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked [speaketh] frowardness.
