PROV 22:1 A name is chosen rather than much wealth, Than silver and than gold -- good grace. PROV 22:2 Rich and poor have met together, The Maker of them all `isJehovah. PROV 22:3 The prudent hath seen the evil, and is hidden, And the simple have passed on, and are punished. PROV 22:4 The end of humility `isthe fear of Jehovah, Riches, and honour, and life. PROV 22:5 Thorns -- snares `arein the way of the perverse, Whoso is keeping his soul is far from them. PROV 22:6 Give instruction to a youth about his way, Even when he is old he turneth not from it. PROV 22:7 The rich over the poor ruleth, And a servant `isthe borrower to the lender. PROV 22:8 Whoso is sowing perverseness reapeth sorrow, And the rod of his anger weareth out. PROV 22:9 The good of eye -- he is blessed, For he hath given of his bread to the poor. PROV 22:10 Cast out a scorner -- and contention goeth out, And strife and shame cease. PROV 22:11 Whoso is loving cleanness of heart, Grace `arehis lips, a king `ishis friend. PROV 22:12 The eyes of Jehovah have kept knowledge, And He overthroweth the words of the treacherous. PROV 22:13 The slothful hath said, `A lion `iswithout, In the midst of the broad places I am slain.' PROV 22:14 A deep pit `isthe mouth of strange women, The abhorred of Jehovah falleth there. PROV 22:15 Folly is bound up in the heart of a youth, The rod of chastisement putteth it far from him. PROV 22:16 He is oppressing the poor to multiply to him, He is giving to the rich -- only to want. PROV 22:17 Incline thine ear, and hear words of the wise, And thy heart set to my knowledge, PROV 22:18 For they are pleasant when thou dost keep them in thy heart, They are prepared together for thy lips. PROV 22:19 That thy trust may be in Jehovah, I caused thee to know to-day, even thou. PROV 22:20 Have I not written to thee three times With counsels and knowledge? PROV 22:21 To cause thee to know the certainty of sayings of truth, To return sayings of truth to those sending thee. PROV 22:22 Rob not the poor because he `ispoor, And bruise not the afflicted in the gate. PROV 22:23 For Jehovah pleadeth their cause, And hath spoiled the soul of their spoilers. PROV 22:24 Shew not thyself friendly with an angry man, And with a man of fury go not in, PROV 22:25 Lest thou learn his paths, And have received a snare to thy soul. PROV 22:26 Be not thou among those striking hands, Among sureties `forburdens. PROV 22:27 If thou hast nothing to pay, Why doth he take thy bed from under thee? PROV 22:28 Remove not a border of olden times, That thy fathers have made. PROV 22:29 Hast thou seen a man speedy in his business? Before kings he doth station himself, He stations not himself before obscure men!
