Book 28 : KETUVIM - PROVERBS - Chapter 012


Whoso loveth knowledge loveth correction; but he that is brutish hateth reproof


A good man shall obtain favour of HaShem; but a man of wicked devices will He condemn


A man shall not be established by wickedness; but the root of the righteous shall never be moved


A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband; but she that doeth shamefully is as rottenness in his bones


The thoughts of the righteous are right; but the counsels of the wicked are deceit


The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood; but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them


The wicked are overthrown, and are not; but the house of the righteous shall stand


A man shall be commended according to his intelligence; but he that is of a distorted understanding shall be despised


Better is he that is lightly esteemed, and hath a servant, than he that playeth the man of rank, and lacketh bread


A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast; but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel


He that tilleth his ground shall have plenty of bread; but he that followeth after vain things is void of understanding


The wicked desireth the prey of evil men; but the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit


In the transgression of the lips is a snare to the evil man; but the righteous cometh out of trouble


A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth, and the doings of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him


The way of a fool is straight in his own eyes; but he that is wise hearkeneth unto counsel


A fool's vexation is presently known; but a prudent man concealeth shame


He that breatheth forth truth uttereth righteousness; but a false witness deceit


There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword; but the tongue of the wise is health


The lip of truth shall be established for ever; but a lying tongue is but for a moment


Deceit is in the heart of them that devise evil; but to the counsellors of peace is joy


There shall no mischief befall the righteous; but the wicked are filled with evil


Lying lips are an abomination to HaShem; but they that deal truly are His delight


A prudent man concealeth knowledge; but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness


The hand of the diligent shall bear rule; but the slothful shall be under tribute


Care in the heart of a man boweth it down; but a good word maketh it glad


The righteous is guided by his friend; but the way of the wicked leadeth them astray


The slothful man shall not hunt his prey; but the precious substance of men is to be diligent


In the way of righteousness is life, and in the pathway thereof there is no death
