Chapter 12

1


 

  Whoever loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish.  

 

 


2


 

  A good man obtaineth favor from the LORD: but a man of wicked devices he will condemn.  

 

 


3


 

  A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.  

 

 


4


 

  A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.  

 

 


5


 

  The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.  

 

 


6


 

  The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.  

 

 


7


 

  The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.  

 

 


8


 

  A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.  

 

 


9


 

  He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoreth himself, and is destitute of bread.  

 

 


10


 

  A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.  

 

 


11


 

  He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.  

 

 


12


 

  The wicked desireth the net of evil men: but the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit.  

 

 


13


 

  The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.  

 

 


14


 

  A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompense of a man's hands shall be rendered to him.  

 

 


15


 

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

 

 


16


 

  A fool's wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covereth shame.  

 

 


17


 

  He that speaketh truth showeth forth righteousness: but a false witness, deceit.  

 

 


18


 

  There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.  

 

 


19


 

  The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.  

 

 


20


 

  Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counselors of peace is joy.  

 

 


21


 

  There shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief.  

 

 


22


 

  Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.  

 

 


23


 

  A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.  

 

 


24


 

  The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute.  

 

 


25


 

  Heaviness in the heart of man depresseth it: but a good word maketh it glad.  

 

 


26


 

  The righteous is more excellent than his neighbor: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.  

 

 


27


 

  The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious.  

 

 


28


 

  In the way of righteousness is life; and in the path of it there is no death.
