PROV 10:1 Proverbs of Solomon. A wise son causeth a father to rejoice, And a foolish son `isan affliction to his mother. PROV 10:2 Treasures of wickedness profit not, And righteousness delivereth from death. PROV 10:3 Jehovah causeth not the soul of the righteous to hunger, And the desire of the wicked He thrusteth away. PROV 10:4 Poor `ishe who is working -- a slothful hand, And the hand of the diligent maketh rich. PROV 10:5 Whoso is gathering in summer `isa wise son, Whoso is sleeping in harvest `isa son causing shame. PROV 10:6 Blessings `arefor the head of the righteous, And the mouth of the wicked cover doth violence. PROV 10:7 The remembrance of the righteous `isfor a blessing, And the name of the wicked doth rot. PROV 10:8 The wise in heart accepteth commands, And a talkative fool kicketh. PROV 10:9 Whoso is walking in integrity walketh confidently, And whoso is perverting his ways is known. PROV 10:10 Whoso is winking the eye giveth grief, And a talkative fool kicketh. PROV 10:11 A fountain of life `isthe mouth of the righteous, And the mouth of the wicked cover doth violence. PROV 10:12 Hatred awaketh contentions, And over all transgressions love covereth. PROV 10:13 In the lips of the intelligent is wisdom found, And a rod `isfor the back of him who is lacking understanding. PROV 10:14 The wise lay up knowledge, and the mouth of a fool `isnear ruin.

PROV 10:19 In the abundance of words transgression ceaseth not, And whoso is restraining his lips `iswise. PROV 10:20 The tongue of the righteous `ischosen silver, The heart of the wicked -- as a little thing. PROV 10:21 The lips of the righteous delight many, And fools for lack of heart die. PROV 10:22 The blessing of Jehovah -- it maketh rich, And He addeth no grief with it. PROV 10:23 To execute inventions `isas play to a fool, And wisdom to a man of understanding. PROV 10:24 The feared thing of the wicked it meeteth him, And the desire of the righteous is given. PROV 10:25 As the passing by of a hurricane, So the wicked is not, And the righteous is a foundation age-during. PROV 10:26 As vinegar to the teeth, And as smoke to the eyes, So `isthe slothful to those sending him. PROV 10:27 The fear of Jehovah addeth days, And the years of the wicked are shortened.

PROV 10:32 The lips of the righteous know a pleasing thing, And the mouth of the wicked perverseness!
