Chapter 14

1

 

 Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands. 

 

 


2

 

 He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the LORD: but [he that is] perverse in his ways despiseth him. 

 

 


3

 

 In the mouth of the foolish [is] a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them. 

 

 


4

 

 Where no oxen [are], the crib [is] clean: but much increase [is] by the strength of the ox. 

 

 


5

 

 A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies. 

 

 


6

 

 A scorner seeketh wisdom, and [findeth it] not: but knowledge [is] easy unto him that understandeth. 

 

 


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. 

 

 


9

 

 Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous [there is] favour. 

 

 


10

 

 The heart knoweth his own bitterness; and a stranger doth not intermeddle with his joy. 

 

 


11

 

 The house of the wicked shall be overthrown: but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish. 

 

 


12

 

 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof [are] the ways of death. 

 

 


13

 

 Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; and the end of that mirth [is] heaviness. 

 

 


14

 

 The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man [shall be satisfied] from himself. 

 

 


15

 

 The simple believeth every word: but the prudent [man] looketh well to his going. 

 

 


16

 

 A wise [man] feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident. 

 

 


17

 

 [He that is] soon angry dealeth foolishly: and a man of wicked devices is hated. 

 

 


18

 

 The simple inherit folly: but the prudent are crowned with knowledge. 

 

 


19

 

 The evil bow before the good; and the wicked at the gates of the righteous. 

 

 


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. 

 

 


22

 

 Do they not err that devise evil? but mercy and truth [shall be] to them that devise good. 

 

 


23

 

 In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips [tendeth] only to penury. 

 

 


24

 

 The crown of the wise [is] their riches: [but] the foolishness of fools [is] folly. 

 

 


25

 

 A true witness delivereth souls: but a deceitful [witness] speaketh lies. 

 

 


26

 

 In the fear of the LORD [is] strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge. 

 

 


27

 

 The fear of the LORD [is] a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. 

 

 


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. 

 

 


30

 

 A sound heart [is] the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones. 

 

 


31

 

 He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor. 

 

 


32

 

 The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: but the righteous hath hope in his death. 

 

 


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. 

 

 


35

 

 The king's favour [is] toward a wise servant: but his wrath is [against] him that causeth shame.
