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.
