36 But he that sinneth against me '^ wrong-
eth his own soul : all they that hate me love


1 The discipline, 4 and doctrine of wisdom. 13 The
custom, 16 and error of folly.

WISDOM hath ■'builded her house, she
hath hewn out her seven pillars :

2 i" She hath killed t her beasts; ''she hath
mingled her wine; she hath also furnished
her table.

3 She hath ^ sent forth her maidens :
* she crieth ^ upon the highest places of the

4 s Whoso is simple, let him turn in
hither : as for him that wanteth understand-
ing, she saith to him,

5 '' Come, eat of my bread, and drink of
the wine which I have mingled.

6 Forsalie the foolish, and live; and go
in the way of understanding.

7 He that reproveth a scorner getteth to
himself shame : and he that rebuketh a wicked
man getteth himself a blot.

8 'Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate
thee: ''rebuke a wise man, and he will love

9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he
will be yet wiser : teach a just man, 'and he
will increase in learning.

10 "The fear of the Lord is the begin-
ning of wisdom : and the knowledge of the
holy is understanding.

11 "For by me thy days shall be mul-
tiplied, and the years of thy life shall be

12 °If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise
for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone
shalt bear it.

13 IT? A foolish woman is clamorous : she
is simple, and knoweth nothing.

14 For she sitteth at the door of her house,
on a seat lin the high places of the city,

15 To call passengers who go right on
their ways :

16 'Whoso is simple, let him turn in
hither : and as for him that wanteth under-
standing, she saith to him,

17 ^Stolen waters are sweet, and bread
t eaten in secret is pleasant.

depths of hell.



From this chapter to the five and twentieth are sundry
observations of moral virtues, and their contrary vices.

THE proverbs of Solomon. "A wise son
maketh a glad father : but a foolish son
is the heaviness of his mother.

2 '• Treasures of wickedness profit nothing :
''but righteousness delivereth from death.

3 ^The Lord will not suffer the soul of
the righteous to famish : but he casteth away
II the substance of the wicked.

4 *He becometh poor that dealeth with
a slack hand : but ^ the hand of the diligent
maketh rich.

5 He that gathereth in summer is a wise
son: hut he that sleepeth in harvest is sa
son that causeth shame.

6 Blessings are upon the head of the just :
but •'violence covereth the mouth of the

7 ' The memory of the just is blessed : but
the name of the wicked shall rot.

8 The wise in heart will receive com-
mandments : ''but t a prating fool [| shall fall.

9 'He that walketh uprightly walketh
surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall
be known.

10 ""He that winketh with the eye causeth
sorrow: "but a prating fool || shall fall.

11 "The mouth of a righteous man is a
well of life: but p violence covereth the
mouth of the wicked.

12 Hatred stirreth up strifes : but ilove
covereth all sins.

13 In the lips of<y;iiim that hath under-
standing wisdom is found: but ""a rod is
for the back of him that is void of f under-

14 Wise men lay up knowledge : but nhe
mouth of the foohsh is near destruction.

15 'The rich man's wealth is his strong
city: the destruction of the poor is their

16 The labour of the righteous tendeth to
life : the fruit of the wicked to sin.

17 He is in the way of life that keepeth
instruction: but he that refuseth reproof
II erreth.

18 He that hideth hatred with lying lips,
and "he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.

19 ^In the multitude of words there
wanteth not sin: but yhe that refraineth his
lips is wise.

20 The tongue of the just is as choice
silver: the heart of the wicked is little

Moral virtues,

21 The lips of the righteous feed many :
but fools die for want t of wisdom.

22 ^The blessing of the Lord, it maketh
rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

\\^ 23 " Jf is as sport to a fool to do mischief:
but a man of understanding hath wisdom.

24 ""The fear of the wicked, it shall come
upon him : but •'the desire of the righteous
shall be granted.

25 As the whirlwind passeth, ^so is the
wicked no more: but "the righteous is an
everlasting foundation.

26 As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke
to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that
send him.

27 ^The fear of the Lord f prolongeth
days : but s the years of the wicked shall be

28 The hope of the righteous shall he
gladness : but the "^ expectation of the wicked

• • shall perish.

29 The way of the Lord is strength to
the upright: 'but destruction shall he to the
workers of iniquity.

30 ''The righteous shall never be remov-
ed : but the wicked shall not inhabit the

31 'The mouth of the just bringeth forth
wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be
cut out.

32 The lips of the righteous know what
is acceptable : but the mouth of the wicked
speaketh f frowardness.


A" t FALSE balance is abomination to
the Lord : but f a just weight is\ his
delight. \

2 ^When pride cometh, then cometh
shame : but with the lowly is wisdom.

3 "The integrity of the upright shall guide
them : but the perverseness of transgressors
shall destroy them.

4 ^Riches profit not in the day of wrath :
but ^righteousness delivereth from death.

5 The righteousness of the perfect shall
\ direct his way : but the wicked shall fall
by his own wickedness.

6 The righteousness of the upright shall
deliver them : but ''transgressors shall be
taken in their own naughtiness.

7 s When a wicked man dieth, his expec-
tation shall perish : and the hope of unjust
men perisheth.

8 '' The righteous is delivered out of trou-
ble, and the wicked cometh in his stead.

9 An 'hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth
his neighbour : but through knowledge shall
the just be delivered.
