Rivulets of waters is the heart of a king in the hand
of Jehovah, Wherever He pleaseth He inclineth it.
Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, And
Jehovah is pondering hearts.
To do righteousness and judgment, Is chosen of Jehovah
rather than sacrifice.
Loftiness of eyes, and breadth of heart, Tillage of the
wicked is sin.
The purposes of the diligent are only to advantage,
And of every hasty one, only to want.
The making of treasures by a lying tongue, Is a
vanity driven away of those seeking death.
The spoil of the wicked catcheth them, Because they have
refused to do judgment.
Froward is the way of a man who is vile, And the pure
-- upright is his work.
Better to sit on a corner of the roof, Than with a
woman of contentions and a house of company.
The soul of the wicked hath desired evil, Not gracious in
his eyes is his neighbour.
When the scorner is punished, the simple becometh wise, And
in giving understanding to the wise He receiveth knowledge.
The Righteous One is acting wisely Towards the house of the
wicked, He is overthrowing the wicked for wickedness.
Whoso is shutting his ear from the cry of the poor, He also
doth cry, and is not answered.
A gift in secret pacifieth anger, And a bribe in the bosom
To do justice is joy to the righteous, But ruin to
workers of iniquity.
A man who is wandering from the way of understanding, In an
assembly of Rephaim resteth.
Whoso is loving mirth is a poor man, Whoso is
loving wine and oil maketh no wealth.
The wicked is an atonement for the righteous, And for
the upright the treacherous dealer.
Better to dwell in a wilderness land, Than with a
woman of contentions and anger.
A treasure to be desired, and oil, Is in the
habitation of the wise, And a foolish man swalloweth it up.
Whoso is pursuing righteousness and kindness, Findeth life,
righteousness, and honour.
A city of the mighty hath the wise gone up, And bringeth
down the strength of its confidence.
Whoso is keeping his mouth and his tongue, Is keeping from
adversities his soul.
Proud, haughty, scorner is his name, Who is working
in the wrath of pride.
The desire of the slothful slayeth him, For his hands have
refused to work.
All the day desiring he hath desired, And the righteous
giveth and withholdeth not.
The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination, Much more
when in wickedness he bringeth it.
A false witness doth perish, And an attentive man for ever
A wicked man hath hardened by his face, And the upright --
he prepareth his way.
There is no wisdom, nor understanding, Nor counsel,
A horse is prepared for a day of battle, And the deliverance
is of Jehovah!
