Book 28 : KETUVIM - PROVERBS - Chapter 019


Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity than he that is perverse in his lips and a fool at the same time


Also, that the soul be without knowledge is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth


The foolishness of man perverteth his way; and his heart fretteth against HaShem


Wealth addeth many friends; but as for the poor, his friend separateth himself from him


A false witness shall not be unpunished; and he that breatheth forth lies shall not escape


Many will entreat the favour of the liberal man; and every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts


All the brethren of the poor do hate him; how much more do his friends go far from him! He that pursueth words, they turn against him


He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul; he that keepeth understanding shall find good


A false witness shall not be unpunished; and he that breatheth forth lies shall perish


Luxury is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes


It is the discretion of a man to be slow to anger, and it is his glory to pass over a transgression


The king's wrath is as the roaring of a lion; but his favour is as dew upon the grass


A foolish son is the calamity of his father; and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping


House and riches are the inheritance of fathers; but a prudent wife is from HaShem


Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and the idle soul shall suffer hunger


He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his soul; but he that despiseth His ways shall die


He that is gracious unto the poor lendeth unto HaShem; and his good deed will He repay unto him


Chasten thy son, for there is hope; but set not thy heart on his destruction


A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment; for if thou interpose, thou wilt add thereto


Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end


There are many devices in a man's heart; but the counsel of HaShem, that shall stand


The lust of a man is his shame; and a poor man is better than a liar


The fear of HaShem tendeth to life; and he that hath it shall abide satisfied, he shall not be visited with evil


The sluggard burieth his hand in the dish, and will not so much as bring it back to his mouth


When thou smitest a scorner, the simple will become prudent; and when one that hath understanding is reproved, he will understand knowledge


A son that dealeth shamefully and reproachfully will despoil his father, and chase away his mother


Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge


An ungodly witness mocketh at right; and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity


Judgments are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the back of fools
