PROV 14:1 Every wise woman hath builded her house, And the foolish with her hands breaketh it down. PROV 14:2 Whoso is walking in his uprightness is fearing Jehovah, And the perverted `inhis ways is despising Him. PROV 14:3 In the mouth of a fool `isa rod of pride, And the lips of the wise preserve them. PROV 14:4 Without oxen a stall `isclean, And great `isthe increase by the power of the ox. PROV 14:5 A faithful witness lieth not, And a false witness breatheth out lies. PROV 14:6 A scorner hath sought wisdom, and it is not, And knowledge to the intelligent `iseasy. PROV 14:7 Go from before a foolish man, Or thou hast not known the lips of knowledge. PROV 14:8 The wisdom of the prudent `isto understand his way, And the folly of fools `isdeceit. PROV 14:9 Fools mock at a guilt-offering, And among the upright -- a pleasing thing. PROV 14:10 The heart knoweth its own bitterness, And with its joy a stranger doth not intermeddle. PROV 14:11 The house of the wicked is destroyed, And the tent of the upright flourisheth. PROV 14:12 There is a way -- right before a man, And its latter end `areways of death. PROV 14:13 Even in laughter is the heart pained, And the latter end of joy `isaffliction. PROV 14:14 From his ways is the backslider in heart filled, And a good man -- from his fruits. PROV 14:15 The simple giveth credence to everything, And the prudent attendeth to his step. PROV 14:16 The wise is fearing and turning from evil, And a fool is transgressing and is confident. PROV 14:17 Whoso is short of temper doth folly, And a man of wicked devices is hated. PROV 14:18 The simple have inherited folly, And the prudent are crowned `withknowledge. PROV 14:19 The evil have bowed down before the good, And the wicked at the gates of the righteous. PROV 14:20 Even of his neighbour is the poor hated, And those loving the rich `aremany. PROV 14:21 Whoso is despising his neighbour sinneth, Whoso is favouring the humble, O his happiness. PROV 14:22 Do not they err who are devising evil? And kindness and truth `areto those devising good, PROV 14:23 In all labour there is advantage, And a thing of the lips `isonly to want. PROV 14:24 The crown of the wise is their wealth, The folly of fools `isfolly. PROV 14:25 A true witness is delivering souls, And a deceitful one breatheth out lies. PROV 14:26 In the fear of Jehovah `isstrong confidence, And to His sons there is a refuge. PROV 14:27 The fear of Jehovah `isa fountain of life, To turn aside from snares of death. PROV 14:28 In the multitude of a people `isthe honour of a king, And in lack of people the ruin of a prince. PROV 14:29 Whoso is slow to anger `isof great understanding, And whoso is short in temper is exalting folly. PROV 14:30 A healed heart `islife to the flesh, And rottenness to the bones `isenvy. PROV 14:31 An oppressor of the poor reproacheth his Maker, And whoso is honouring Him Is favouring the needy. PROV 14:32 In his wickedness is the wicked driven away, And trustful in his death `isthe righteous. PROV 14:33 In the heart of the intelligent wisdom doth rest. And in the midst of fools it is known. PROV 14:34 Righteousness exalteth a nation, And the goodliness of peoples `isa sin-offering. PROV 14:35 The favour of a king `isto a wise servant, And an object of his wrath is one causing shame!
