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.
