1: Better is the poor who walks in his integrity than he who is perverse in his lips and is a fool. 2: It isn't good to have zeal without knowledge; nor being hasty with one's feet and missing the way. 3: The foolishness of man subverts his way; his heart rages against Yahweh. 4: Wealth adds many friends, but the poor is separated from his friend. 5: A false witness shall not be unpunished. He who pours out lies shall not go free. 6: Many will entreat the favor of a ruler, and everyone is a friend to a man who gives gifts. 7: All the relatives of the poor shun him: how much more do his friends avoid him! He pursues them with pleas, but they are gone. 8: He who gets wisdom loves his own soul. He who keeps understanding shall find good. 9: A false witness shall not be unpunished. He who utters lies shall perish. 10: Delicate living is not appropriate for a fool, much less for a servant to have rule over princes. 11: The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger. It is his glory to overlook an offense. 12: The king's wrath is like the roaring of a lion, but his favor is like dew on the grass. 13: A foolish son is the calamity of his father. A wife's quarrels are a continual dripping. 14: House and riches are an inheritance from fathers, but a prudent wife is from Yahweh. 15: Slothfulness casts into a deep sleep. The idle soul shall suffer hunger. 16: He who keeps the commandment keeps his soul, but he who is contemptuous in his ways shall die. 17: He who has pity on the poor lends to Yahweh; he will reward him. 18: Discipline your son, for there is hope; don't be a willing party to his death. 19: A hot-tempered man must pay the penalty, for if you rescue him, you must do it again. 20: Listen to counsel and receive instruction, that you may be wise in your latter end. 21: There are many plans in a man's heart, but Yahweh's counsel will prevail. 22: That which makes a man to be desired is his kindness. A poor man is better than a liar. 23: The fear of Yahweh leads to life, then contentment; he rests and will not be touched by trouble. 24: The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not so much as bring it to his mouth again. 25: Flog a scoffer, and the simple will learn prudence; rebuke one who has understanding, and he will gain knowledge. 26: He who robs his father and drives away his mother, is a son who causes shame and brings reproach. 27: If you stop listening to instruction, my son, you will stray from the words of knowledge. 28: A corrupt witness mocks justice, and the mouth of the wicked gulps down iniquity. 29: Penalties are prepared for scoffers, and beatings for the backs of fools.
