Chapter 12

1

 He that loveth correction, loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is foolish. 


2

 He that is good, shall draw grace from the Lord : but he that trusteth in his own devices doth wickedly. 


3

 Men shall not be strengthened by wickedness: and the root of the just shall not be moved. 


4

 A diligent woman is a crown to her husband: and she that doth things worthy of confusion, is a rottenness in his bones. 


5

 The thoughts of the just are judgments: and the counsels of the wicked are deceitful. 


6

 The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood: the mouth of the just shall deliver them. 


7

 Turn the wicked, and they shall not be: but the house of the just shall stand firm. 


8

 A man shall be known by his learning: but he that is vain and foolish, shall be exposed to contempt. 


9

 Better is the poor man that provideth for himself, than he that is glorious and wanteth bread. 


10

 The just regardeth the lives of his beasts: but the bowels of the wicked are cruel. 


11

 He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that pursueth idleness is very foolish. He that is delighted in passing his time over wine, leaveth a reproach in his strong holds. 


12

 The desire of the wicked is the fortification of evil men: but the root of the just shall prosper. 


13

 For the sins of the lips ruin draweth nigh to the evil mall: but the just shall escape out of distress. 


14

 By the fruit of his own mouth shall a man be filled with good things, and according to the works of his hands it shall be repaid him. 


15

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


16

 A fool immediately sheweth his anger: but he that dissembleth injuries is wise. 


17

 He that speaketh that which he knoweth, sheweth forth justice: but he that lieth, is a deceitful witness. 


18

 There is that promiseth, and is pricked as it were with a sword of conscience: but the tongue of the wise is health. 


19

 The lip of truth shall be steadfast for ever: but he that is a hasty witness, frameth a lying tongue. 


20

 Deceit is in the heart of them that think evil things: but joy followeth them that take counsels of peace. 


21

 Whatsoever shall befall the just man. it shall not make him sad: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief. 


22

 Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord: but they that deal faithfully please him. 


23

 A cautious man concealeth knowledge: and the heart of fools publisheth folly. 


24

 The hand of the valiant shall bear rule: but that which is slothful, shall be under tribute. 


25

 Grief in the heart of a man shall bring him low, but with a good word he shall be made glad. 


26

 He that neglecteth a loss for the sake of a friend, is just: but the way of the wicked shall deceive them. 


27

 The deceitful man shall not find gain: but the substance of a just man shall be precious gold. 


28

 In the path of justice is life: but the by-way leadeth to death.
