 Psalms   Ecclesiastes  

Proverbs 1:1
The proverbs of Solomon, the son of David, king of Israel;

Proverbs 1:2
To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;

Proverbs 1:3
To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity;

Proverbs 1:4
To give subtlety to the simple, to the young man, knowledge and discretion.

Proverbs 1:5
A wise [man] will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding will attain wise counsels.

Proverbs 1:6
To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.

Proverbs 1:7
The fear of the Lord [is] the beginning of knowledge [*35:28], [but] fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 1:8
My son, hear the instruction of your father, and do not forsake the law of your mother.

Proverbs 1:9
For they [will be] an ornament of grace to your head, and chains about your neck.

Proverbs 1:10
My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent.

Proverbs 1:11
If they say, "Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause.

Proverbs 1:12
Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those who go down into the pit.

Proverbs 1:13
We will find all precious substance, we will fill our houses with spoil.

Proverbs 1:14
Cast in your lot among us; let us all have one purse."

Proverbs 1:15
My son, do not walk in the way with them; refrain your foot from their path.

Proverbs 1:16
For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.

Proverbs 1:17
Surely the net is spread in vain in the sight of any bird.

Proverbs 1:18
And they lay wait for their [own] blood; they lurk privily for their [own] lives.

Proverbs 1:19
So [are] the ways of everyone who is greedy of gain; [which] takes away the life of the owners thereof.

Proverbs 1:20
Wisdom cries outside; she utters her voice in the streets.

Proverbs 1:21
She cries in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates, in the city, she utters her words, [saying],

Proverbs 1:22
"How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity?  And the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

Proverbs 1:23
Turn at my reproof, behold, I will pour out my spirit to you, I will make my words known to you.

Proverbs 1:24
Because I have called, and you refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

Proverbs 1:25
But you have set all my counsel at nothing, and did not will any of my reproof.

Proverbs 1:26
I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear comes;

Proverbs 1:27
When your fear comes as desolation, and your destruction comes as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish come upon you.

Proverbs 1:28
Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer; they will seek me early, but they will not find me.

Proverbs 1:29
For they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord.

Proverbs 1:30
They did not comply to my counsel, they despised all my reproof.

Proverbs 1:31
Therefore they will eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

Proverbs 1:32
For the turning away of the simple will slay them, and the prosperity of fools will destroy them.

Proverbs 1:33
But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be quiet from fear of evil."

Proverbs 2:1
My son, if you will receive my words, and hide my commandments with you;

Proverbs 2:2
So that you incline your ear to wisdom, [and] apply your heart to understanding;

Proverbs 2:3
Indeed, if you cry after knowledge, [and] lift up your voice for understanding;

Proverbs 2:4
If you seek her as silver, and search for her as [for] hidden treasures;

Proverbs 2:5
Then you will understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.

Proverbs 2:6
For the Lord gives wisdom, out of His mouth [comes] knowledge and understanding.

Proverbs 2:7
He lays up sound wisdom for the righteous, [He is] a buckler to those who walk uprightly.

Proverbs 2:8
He keeps the paths of judgment, and preserves the way of His benign ones.

Proverbs 2:9
Then you will understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; [indeed], every good path.

Proverbs 2:10
When wisdom enters into your heart, and knowledge is pleasant to your soul;

Proverbs 2:11
Discretion will preserve you, understanding will keep you.

Proverbs 2:12
To deliver you from the way of the evil [man], from the man who speaks perverse things;

Proverbs 2:13
Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;

Proverbs 2:14
Who rejoice to do evil, [and] delight in the perversity of the wicked;

Proverbs 2:15
Whose ways [are] crooked, and devious in their paths.

Proverbs 2:16
To deliver you from the strange woman, [even] from the stranger [who] flatters with her words;

Proverbs 2:17
Who forsakes the guide of her youth, and forgets the covenant of her God.

Proverbs 2:18
For her house inclines to death, and her paths to the dead.

Proverbs 2:19
None who go to her return again, neither do they take hold of the paths of life.

Proverbs 2:20
That you may walk in the way of good [men], and keep the paths of the righteous.

Proverbs 2:21
For the upright will dwell in the land, and the perfect will remain in it.

Proverbs 2:22
But the wicked will be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors will be rooted out of it.

Proverbs 3:1
My son, do not forget my law; but let your heart keep my commandments.

Proverbs 3:2
For length of days, and long life, and peace, they will add to you.

Proverbs 3:3
Do not let mercy and truth forsake you, bind them about your neck; write them upon the table of your heart.

Proverbs 3:4
So you will find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and do not lean to your own understanding.

Proverbs 3:6
In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Proverbs 3:7
Do not be wise in your own eyes, fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

Proverbs 3:8
It will be health to your navel, and marrow to your bones.

Proverbs 3:9
Honor the Lord with your substance, and with the firstfruits of all your increase.

Proverbs 3:10
So your barns will be filled with plenty, and your presses will burst out with new wine.

Proverbs 3:11
My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of His correction.

Proverbs 3:12
For whom the Lord loves, He corrects; even as a father the son [in whom] he delights.

Proverbs 3:13
Happy [is] the man [who] finds wisdom, and the man [who] gets understanding.

Proverbs 3:14
For the merchandise of it [is] better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.

Proverbs 3:15
She [is] more precious than rubies, and all the things you can desire are not to be compared to her.

Proverbs 3:16
Length of days [is] in her right hand; [and] in her left hand riches and honor.

Proverbs 3:17
Her ways [are] ways of pleasantness, and all her paths [are] peace.

Proverbs 3:18
She [is] a Tree of Life to those who lay hold upon her, and happy [is everyone] who retains her.

Proverbs 3:19
The Lord has founded the earth by wisdom; He has established the heavens by understanding.

Proverbs 3:20
By His knowledge, the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down dew.

Proverbs 3:21
My son, do not let them depart from your eyes, keep sound wisdom and discretion.

Proverbs 3:22
So they will be life to your soul, and grace to your neck.

Proverbs 3:23
Then you will walk in your way safely, and your foot will not stumble.

Proverbs 3:24
When you lie down, you will not be afraid, indeed, you will lie down, and your sleep will be sweet.

Proverbs 3:25
Do not be afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it comes.

Proverbs 3:26
For the Lord will be your confidence, and will keep your foot from being taken.

Proverbs 3:27
Do not withhold good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of your hand to do [it].

Proverbs 3:28
Do not say to your neighbor, "Go, and come again, and tomorrow I will give;" when you have it by you.

Proverbs 3:29
Do not devise evil against your neighbor, seeing he dwells securely by you.

Proverbs 3:30
Do not strive with a man without cause, if he has done you no harm.

Proverbs 3:31
Do not envy the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.

Proverbs 3:32
For the deviousness [is] an abomination to the Lord, but His secret [is] with the righteous.

Proverbs 3:33
The curse of the Lord [is] in the house of the wicked, but He blesses the habitation of the just.

Proverbs 3:34
Surely He scorns the scorners, but He gives grace to the lowly.  [*James 4:6]

Proverbs 3:35
The wise will inherit glory, but shame will be the promotion of fools.

Proverbs 4:1
Hear, you children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.

Proverbs 4:2
For I give you a good doctrine, do not forsake my law.

Proverbs 4:3
For I was my father's son, tender and only [beloved] in the sight of my mother.

Proverbs 4:4
He taught me also, and said to me, "Let your heart retain my words, keep my commandments, and live.

Proverbs 4:5
Get wisdom, get understanding, do not forget [it]; neither decline from the words of my mouth."

Proverbs 4:6
Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you, love her, and she will keep you.

Proverbs 4:7
Wisdom [is] the principal thing; [therefore] get wisdom, and with all your getting, get understanding.

Proverbs 4:8
Exalt her, and she will promote you, she will bring you to honor, when you do embrace her.

Proverbs 4:9
She will give an ornament of grace to your head, she will deliver a crown of glory to you.

Proverbs 4:10
Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of your life will be many.

Proverbs 4:11
I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths.

Proverbs 4:12
When you go, your steps will not be straitened; and when you run, you will not stumble.

Proverbs 4:13
Take fast hold of instruction; do not let [her] go, keep her; for she [is] your life.

Proverbs 4:14
Do not enter into the path of the wicked, and do not go in the way of evil [men].

Proverbs 4:15
Avoid it, do not pass by it, turn from it, and pass away.

Proverbs 4:16
For they do not sleep, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause [some] to fall.

Proverbs 4:17
For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.

Proverbs 4:18
But the path of the just [is] as the shining light, that shines more and more to the perfect day.

Proverbs 4:19
The way of the wicked [is] as darkness, they do not know at what they stumble.

Proverbs 4:20
My son, attend to my words; incline your ear to my sayings.

Proverbs 4:21
Let them not depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart.

Proverbs 4:22
For they [are] life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.

Proverbs 4:23
Keep your heart with all diligence; for out of it [are] the issues of life.

Proverbs 4:24
Put a perverse mouth away from you, and put perverse lips far from you.

Proverbs 4:25
Let your eyes look right on, and let your eyelids look straight before you.

Proverbs 4:26
Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established.

Proverbs 4:27
Do not turn to the right hand or to the left, remove your foot from evil.

Proverbs 5:1
My son, attend to my wisdom, [and] bow your ear to my understanding.

Proverbs 5:2
That you may regard discretion, and [that] your lips may keep knowledge.

Proverbs 5:3
For the lips of a strange woman drop [as] a honeycomb, and her mouth [is] smoother than oil.

Proverbs 5:4
But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.

Proverbs 5:5
Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on Hell.

Proverbs 5:6
Unless you should ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, [that] you cannot know [them].

Proverbs 5:7
Hear me now therefore, O you children, and do not depart from the words of my mouth.

Proverbs 5:8
Remove your way far from her, and do not come near the door of her house.

Proverbs 5:9
Unless you give your honor to others, and your years to the cruel.

Proverbs 5:10
Unless strangers are filled with your wealth; and your labors [are] in the house of a stranger;

Proverbs 5:11
And you mourn at the last, when your flesh and your body are consumed,

Proverbs 5:12
And say, "How I have hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;

Proverbs 5:13
And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined my ear to those who instructed me!

Proverbs 5:14
I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly."

Proverbs 5:15
Drink waters out of your own cistern, and running waters out of your own well.

Proverbs 5:16
Let your fountains be dispersed abroad, [and] rivers of waters in the streets.

Proverbs 5:17
Let them be only your own, and not strangers' with you.

Proverbs 5:18
Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth.

Proverbs 5:19
[Let her be as] the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy you at all times; and be ravished always with her love.

Proverbs 5:20
And why will you, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?

Proverbs 5:21
For the ways of man [are] before the eyes of the Lord, and He ponders all his goings.

Proverbs 5:22
His own iniquities will take the wicked himself, and he will be held with the cords of his sins.

Proverbs 5:23
He will die without instruction; and he will go astray in the greatness of his folly.

Proverbs 6:1
My son, if you are surety for your friend, [if] you have stricken your hand with a stranger,

Proverbs 6:2
You are snared with the words of your mouth, you are taken with the words of your mouth.

Proverbs 6:3
Do this now, my son, and deliver yourself, when you are brought into the hand of your friend; go, humble yourself, and make sure your friend.

Proverbs 6:4
Do not give sleep to your eyes, nor slumber to your eyelids.

Proverbs 6:5
Deliver yourself as a roe from the hand [of the hunter], and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.

Proverbs 6:6
Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.

Proverbs 6:7
Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,

Proverbs 6:8
Provides her meat in the summer, [and] gathers her food in the harvest.

Proverbs 6:9
How long will you sleep, O sluggard?  When will you arise out of your sleep?

Proverbs 6:10
[Yet] a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep.

Proverbs 6:11
So will your poverty come as one who travels, and your want as an armed man.

Proverbs 6:12
A naughty person, a wicked man, walks with a perverse mouth.

Proverbs 6:13
He winks with his eyes, he speaks with his feet, he teaches with his fingers;

Proverbs 6:14
Perversity [is] in his heart, he devises mischief continually; he sows discord.

Proverbs 6:15
Therefore his calamity will come suddenly; suddenly he will be broken without remedy.

Proverbs 6:16
The Lord hates these six [things], indeed, seven [are] an abomination to him.

Proverbs 6:17
A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

Proverbs 6:18
A heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that are swift in running to mischief,

Proverbs 6:19
A false witness [that] speaks lies, and he who sows discord among brethren.

Proverbs 6:20
My son, keep your father's commandment, and do not forsake the law of your mother.

Proverbs 6:21
Bind them continually upon your heart, [and] tie them about your neck.

Proverbs 6:22
When you go, it will lead you; when you sleep, it will keep you; and [when] you awake, it will talk with you.

Proverbs 6:23
For the commandment [is] a lamp; and the law [is] light; and reproofs of instruction [are] the way of life.

Proverbs 6:24
To keep you from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.

Proverbs 6:25
Do not lust after her beauty in your heart; neither let her take with her eyelids.  [*Matthew 5:28, *24:30]

Proverbs 6:26
For by means of a whorish woman [a man is brought] to a piece of bread, and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.

Proverbs 6:27
Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes are not burned?

Proverbs 6:28
Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet are not burned?

Proverbs 6:29
So he who goes in to his neighbor's wife; whoever touches her will not be innocent.

Proverbs 6:30
[Men] do not despise a thief, if he steals to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;

Proverbs 6:31
But [if] he is found, he will restore sevenfold; he will give all the substance of his house.

Proverbs 6:32
[But] whoever commits adultery with a woman lacks understanding, he [who] does it destroys his own soul.

Proverbs 6:33
He will get a wound and dishonor; and his reproach will not be wiped away.

Proverbs 6:34
For jealousy [is] the rage of a man, therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.

Proverbs 6:35
He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though you give many gifts.

Proverbs 7:1
My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with you.

Proverbs 7:2
Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of your eye.

Proverbs 7:3
Bind them upon your fingers, write them upon the table of your heart.

Proverbs 7:4
Say to wisdom, "You [are] my sister; and call understanding [your] kinswoman."

Proverbs 7:5
That they may keep yourself from the strange woman, from the stranger [who] flatters with her words.

Proverbs 7:6
For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,

Proverbs 7:7
And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,

Proverbs 7:8
Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,

Proverbs 7:9
In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night.

Proverbs 7:10
And, behold, there met him a woman [with] the attire of a harlot, and subtle of heart.

Proverbs 7:11
(She [is] loud and stubborn; her feet do not abide in her house.

Proverbs 7:12
Now [she is] outside, now in the streets, and lies in wait at every corner.)

Proverbs 7:13
So she caught him, and kissed him, [and] with an impudent face said to him,

Proverbs 7:14
"[I have] peace offerings with me; this day I have payed my vows.

Proverbs 7:15
Therefore I came forth to meet you, diligently to seek your face, and I have found you.

Proverbs 7:16
I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved [works], with fine linen of Egypt.

Proverbs 7:17
I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.

Proverbs 7:18
Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning, let us solace ourselves with love.

Proverbs 7:19
For the goodman [is] not at home, he has gone a long journey.

Proverbs 7:20
He has taken a bag of money with him, [and] will come home at the appointed day."

Proverbs 7:21
With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.

Proverbs 7:22
He goes after her straightway, as an ox goes to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;

Proverbs 7:23
Until a dart strikes through his liver; as a bird hastens to the snare, and does not know that it [is] for his life.

Proverbs 7:24
Listen to me now therefore, O you children, and attend to the words of my mouth.

Proverbs 7:25
Do not let your heart decline to her ways, do not go astray in her paths.

Proverbs 7:26
For she has cast down many wounded, indeed, many strong [men] have been slain by her.

Proverbs 7:27
Her house [is] the way to Hell, going down to the chambers of death.

Proverbs 8:1
Does wisdom not cry?  And understanding put forth her voice?

Proverbs 8:2
She stands in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths.

Proverbs 8:3
She cries at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors.

Proverbs 8:4
To you, O men, I call; and my voice [is] to the sons of man.

Proverbs 8:5
O you simple, understand wisdom, and, you fools, be of an understanding heart.

Proverbs 8:6
Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips [will be] right things.

Proverbs 8:7
For my mouth will speak truth; and wickedness [is] an abomination to my lips.

Proverbs 8:8
All the words of my mouth [are] in righteousness; [there is] nothing twisted or perverse in them.

Proverbs 8:9
They [are] all plain to him who understands, and right to those who find knowledge.

Proverbs 8:10
Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.

Proverbs 8:11
For wisdom [is] better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.

Proverbs 8:12
I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.

Proverbs 8:13
The fear of the Lord [is] to hate evil, pride, and arrogance, and the evil way, and the perverse mouth, I hate.

Proverbs 8:14
Counsel [is] mine, and sound wisdom, I [am] understanding; I have strength.

Proverbs 8:15
Kings reign by me, and princes decree justice.

Proverbs 8:16
Princes rule by me, and nobles, [even] all the judges of the earth.

Proverbs 8:17
I love those who love me; and those who seek me early will find me.

Proverbs 8:18
Riches and honor [are] with me; [indeed], durable riches and righteousness.

Proverbs 8:19
My fruit [is] better than gold, indeed, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.

Proverbs 8:20
I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment.

Proverbs 8:21
That I may cause those who love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.

Proverbs 8:22
The Lord possessed me in the beginning of His way, before His works of old.

Proverbs 8:23
I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.

Proverbs 8:24
When [there were] no depths, I was brought forth; when [there were] no fountains abounding with water.

Proverbs 8:25
Before the mountains were settled, before the hills, I was brought forth.

Proverbs 8:26
While as yet He had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.

Proverbs 8:27
When He prepared the heavens, I [was] there, when He set a compass upon the face of the depth.

Proverbs 8:28
When He established the clouds above, when He strengthened the fountains of the deep.

Proverbs 8:29
When He gave His decree to the sea, that the waters should not pass His commandment, when He appointed the foundations of the earth.

Proverbs 8:30
Then I was by Him, [as] one brought up [with Him], and I was daily [His] delight, rejoicing always before Him;

Proverbs 8:31
Rejoicing in the habitable part of His earth; and my delights [were] with the sons of men.

Proverbs 8:32
Now therefore hear me, O you children, for blessed [are those who] keep my ways.

Proverbs 8:33
Hear instruction, and be wise, and do not refuse it.

Proverbs 8:34
Blessed [is] the man who hears me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

Proverbs 8:35
For whoever finds me finds life, and will obtain favor of the Lord.

Proverbs 8:36
But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul, all those who hate me love death.

Proverbs 9:1
Wisdom has built her house, she has hewn out her seven pillars.

Proverbs 9:2
She has killed her beasts; she has mingled her wine; she has also furnished her table.

Proverbs 9:3
She has sent forth her maidens, she cries upon the highest places of the city,

Proverbs 9:4
Whoever [is] simple, let him turn in here, [as for] him who wants understanding, she says to him,

Proverbs 9:5
"Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine [which] I have mingled."

Proverbs 9:6
Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Proverbs 9:7
He who reproves a scorner gets shame to himself, and he who rebukes a wicked [man gets] himself a blot.

Proverbs 9:8
Do not reprove a scorner, unless he hates you, rebuke a wise man, and he will love you.

Proverbs 9:9
Give [instruction] to a wise [man], and he will still be wiser, teach a just [man], and he will increase in learning.

Proverbs 9:10
The fear of the Lord [is] the beginning of wisdom [*Sirach 1:14], and the knowledge of the holy [is] understanding.

Proverbs 9:11
For by me your days will be multiplied, and the years of your life will be increased.

Proverbs 9:12
If you are wise, you will be wise for yourself, but [if] you scorn, you alone will bear [it].

Proverbs 9:13
A foolish woman [is] clamorous, [she is] simple, and knows nothing.

Proverbs 9:14
For she sits at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city,

Proverbs 9:15
To call passengers who go right on their ways.

Proverbs 9:16
Whoever [is] simple, let him turn in here, and [as for] him who wants understanding, she says to him,

Proverbs 9:17
"Stolen waters are sweet, and bread [eaten] in secret is pleasant."

Proverbs 9:18
But he does not know that the dead [are] there; [and that] her guests [are] in the depths of Hell.

Proverbs 10:1
The proverbs of Solomon.  A wise son makes a father glad, but a foolish son [is] the heaviness of his mother.

Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, but righteousness delivers from death.

Proverbs 10:3
The Lord will not allow the soul of the righteous to famish, but He casts away the substance of the wicked.

He who deals [with] a slack hand becomes poor, but the hand of the diligent enriches.

Proverbs 10:5
He who gathers in summer [is] a wise son, [but] he who sleeps in harvest [is] a son who causes shame.

Proverbs 10:11
The mouth of a righteous [man is] a well of life, but violence covers the mouth of the wicked.

Proverbs 10:12
Hatred stirs up strifes, but love covers all sins.

Proverbs 10:13
In the lips of him who has understanding, wisdom is found, but a rod [is] for the back of him who is void of understanding.

Proverbs 10:14
Wise [men] lay up knowledge, but the mouth of the foolish [is] near destruction.

Proverbs 10:15
The rich man's wealth [is] his strong city, the destruction of the poor [is] their poverty.

Proverbs 10:16
The labor of the righteous [tends] to life, the fruit of the wicked to sin.

Proverbs 10:17
He who keeps instruction [is in] the way of life, but he who refuses reproof errs.

Proverbs 10:18
He who hides hatred [with] lying lips, and he who utters a slander, [is] a fool.

Proverbs 10:19
In the multitude of words there is no lack of sin, but he who refrains his lips [is] wise.

Proverbs 10:20
