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.
