Chapter 19

1

 

 Better [is] the poor that walketh in his integrity, than [he that is] perverse in his lips, and is a fool. 

 

 


2

 

 Also, [that] the soul [be] without knowledge, [it is] not good; and he that hasteth with [his] feet sinneth. 

 

 


3

 

 The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the LORD. 

 

 


4

 

 Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour. 

 

 


5

 

 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and [he that] speaketh lies shall not escape. 

 

 


6

 

 Many will intreat the favour of the prince: and every man [is] a friend to him that giveth gifts. 

 

 


7

 

 All the brethren of the poor do hate him: how much more do his friends go far from him? he pursueth [them with] words, [yet] they [are] wanting [to him]. 

 

 


8

 

 He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good. 

 

 


9

 

 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and [he that] speaketh lies shall perish. 

 

 


10

 

 Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes. 

 

 


11

 

 The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and [it is] his glory to pass over a transgression. 

 

 


12

 

 The king's wrath [is] as the roaring of a lion; but his favour [is] as dew upon the grass. 

 

 


13

 

 A foolish son [is] the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife [are] a continual dropping. 

 

 


14

 

 House and riches [are] the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife [is] from the LORD. 

 

 


15

 

 Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger. 

 

 


16

 

 He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul; [but] he that despiseth his ways shall die. 

 

 


17

 

 He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again. 

 

 


18

 

 Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying. 

 

 


19

 

 A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou deliver [him], yet thou must do it again. 

 

 


20

 

 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end. 

 

 


21

 

 [There are] many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand. 

 

 


22

 

 The desire of a man [is] his kindness: and a poor man [is] better than a liar. 

 

 


23

 

 The fear of the LORD [tendeth] to life: and [he that hath it] shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil. 

 

 


24

 

 A slothful [man] hideth his hand in [his] bosom, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again. 

 

 


25

 

 Smite a scorner, and the simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, [and] he will understand knowledge. 

 

 


26

 

 He that wasteth [his] father, [and] chaseth away [his] mother, [is] a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach. 

 

 


27

 

 Cease, my son, to hear the instruction [that causeth] to err from the words of knowledge. 

 

 


28

 

 An ungodly witness scorneth judgment: and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity. 

 

 


29

 

 Judgments are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the back of fools.
