Chapter 12

1

 

 Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof [is] brutish. 

 

 


2

 

 A good [man] obtaineth favour of the LORD: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn. 

 

 


3

 

 A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved. 

 

 


4

 

 A virtuous woman [is] a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed [is] as rottenness in his bones. 

 

 


5

 

 The thoughts of the righteous [are] right: [but] the counsels of the wicked [are] deceit. 

 

 


6

 

 The words of the wicked [are] to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them. 

 

 


7

 

 The wicked are overthrown, and [are] not: but the house of the righteous shall stand. 

 

 


8

 

 A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised. 

 

 


9

 

 [He that is] despised, and hath a servant, [is] better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread. 

 

 


10

 

 A righteous [man] regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked [are] cruel. 

 

 


11

 

 He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain [persons is] void of understanding. 

 

 


12

 

 The wicked desireth the net of evil [men]: but the root of the righteous yieldeth [fruit]. 

 

 


13

 

 The wicked is snared by the transgression of [his] lips: but the just shall come out of trouble. 

 

 


14

 

 A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of [his] mouth: and the recompence of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him. 

 

 


15

 

 The way of a fool [is] right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel [is] wise. 

 

 


16

 

 A fool's wrath is presently known: but a prudent [man] covereth shame. 

 

 


17

 

 [He that] speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit. 

 

 


18

 

 There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise [is] health. 

 

 


19

 

 The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue [is] but for a moment. 

 

 


20

 

 Deceit [is] in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace [is] joy. 

 

 


21

 

 There shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief. 

 

 


22

 

 Lying lips [are] abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly [are] his delight. 

 

 


23

 

 A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness. 

 

 


24

 

 The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute. 

 

 


25

 

 Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad. 

 

 


26

 

 The righteous [is] more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them. 

 

 


27

 

 The slothful [man] roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man [is] precious. 

 

 


28

 

 In the way of righteousness [is] life; and [in] the pathway [thereof there is] no death.
