and correction and instruction
are the way to life,
keeping you from your neighbors wife,
from the smooth talk of a wayward woman.
Do not lust in your heart after her beauty
or let her captivate you with her eyes.
For a prostitute can be had for
An unplowed field produces food for the poor,
but injustice sweeps it away.
Whoever spares the rod hates their children,
but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them.
The righteous eat to their hearts content,
but the stomac
For the LORD gives wisdom;
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
He holds success in store for the upright,
he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,
for he guards the course of the just
and protects the way of his faithful ones.
What the wicked dread will overtake them;
what the righteous desire will be granted.
When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone,
but the righteous stand firm forever.
As vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes,
so are sluggards to those
and poverty will come on you like a thief
and scarcity like an armed man.
A troublemaker and a villain,
who goes about with a corrupt mouth,
who winks maliciously with his eye,
signals with his feet
and motions with his fingers,
who plots evil
Whoever walks in integrity walks securely,
but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out.
Whoever winks maliciously causes grief,
and a chattering fool comes to ruin.
The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life,
but the mouth of the wicke
I have perfumed my bed
with myrrh, aloes and cinnamon.
Come, lets drink deeply of love till morning;
lets enjoy ourselves with love!
My husband is not at home;
he has gone on a long journey.
He took his purse filled with money
and will not be
The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood,
but the speech of the upright rescues them.
The wicked are overthrown and are no more,
but the house of the righteous stands firm.
A person is praised according to their prudence,
and one with a warped
She gives no thought to the way of life;
her paths wander aimlessly, but she does not know it.
Now then, my sons, listen to me;
do not turn aside from what I say.
Keep to a path far from her,
do not go near the door of her house,
lest you lose you
Out in the open wisdom calls aloud,
she raises her voice in the public square;
on top of the wall she cries out,
at the city gate she makes her speech:
How long will you who are simple love your simple ways?
How long will mocke
beside the gate leading into the city,
at the entrance, she cries aloud:
To you, O people, I call out;
I raise my voice to all mankind.
You who are simple, gain prudence;
you who are foolish, set your hearts on it.
Listen, for I have trustwort
The eyes of the LORD keep watch over knowledge,
but he frustrates the words of the unfaithful.
The sluggard says, Theres a lion outside!
Ill be killed in the public square!
The mouth of an adulterous woman is a deep pit;
a man who is under the LO
A large population is a kings glory,
but without subjects a prince is ruined.
Whoever is patient has great understanding,
but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.
A heart at peace gives life to the body,
but envy rots the bones.
A friend loves at all times,
and a brother is born for a time of adversity.
One who has no sense shakes hands in pledge
and puts up security for a neighbor.
Whoever loves a quarrel loves sin;
whoever builds a high gate invites destruction.
Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers,
and blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD.
The wise in heart are called discerning,
and gracious words promote instruction.
Prudence is a fountain of life to the prudent,
but folly brings pu
Love and faithfulness keep a king safe;
through love his throne is made secure.
The glory of young men is their strength,
gray hair the splendor of the old.
Blows and wounds scrub away evil,
and beatings purge the inmost being.
