Proverbs 20

Wine
<03196>
[is] a mocker
<03887> (8801)_,
strong drink
<07941>
[is] raging
<01993> (8802)_:
and whosoever is deceived
<07686> (8802)
thereby is not wise
<02449> (8799)_.
The fear
<0367>
of a king
<04428>
[is] as the roaring
<05099>
of a lion
<03715>_:
[whoso] provoketh him to anger
<05674> (8693)
sinneth
<02398> (8802)
[against] his own soul
<05315>_.
[It is] an honour
<03519>
for a man
<0376>
to cease
<07674>
from strife
<07379>_:
but every fool
<0191>
will be meddling
<01566> (8691)_.
The sluggard
<06102>
will not plow
<02790> (8799)
by reason of the cold
<02779>_;
[therefore] shall he beg
<07592> (8804) (8675) <07592> (8799)
in harvest
<07105>_,
and [have] nothing. {cold: or, winter}
Counsel
<06098>
in the heart
<03820>
of man
<0376>
[is like] deep
<06013>
water
<04325>_;
but a man
<0376>
of understanding
<08394>
will draw it out
<01802> (8799)_.
Most
<07230>
men
<0120>
will proclaim
<07121> (8799)
every one
<0376>
his own goodness
<02617>_:
but a faithful
<0529>
man
<0376>
who can find
<04672> (8799)_?
{goodness: or, bounty}
The just
<06662>
[man] walketh
<01980> (8693)
in his integrity
<08537>_:
his children
<01121>
[are] blessed
<0835>
after
<0310>
him.
A king
<04428>
that sitteth in
<03427> (8802)
the throne
<03678>
of judgment
<01779>
scattereth away
<02219> (8764)
all evil
<07451>
with his eyes
<05869>_.
Who can say
<0559> (8799)_,
I have made my heart
<03820>
clean
<02135> (8765)_,
I am pure
<02891> (8804)
from my sin
<02403>_?
Divers weights
<068> <068>_,
[and] divers measures
<0374> <0374>_,
both
<08147>
of them [are] alike
<01571>
abomination
<08441>
to the LORD
<03068>_.
{Divers weights: Heb. A stone and a stone} {divers measures: Heb. an ephah and an ephah}
Even a child
<05288>
is known
<05234> (8691)
by his doings
<04611>_,
whether his work
<06467>
[be] pure
<02134>_,
and whether [it be] right
<03477>_.
The hearing
<08085> (8802)
ear
<0241>_,
and the seeing
<07200> (8802)
eye
<05869>_,
the LORD
<03068>
hath made
<06213> (8804)
even both
<08147>
of them.
Love
<0157> (8799)
not sleep
<08142>_,
lest thou come to poverty
<03423> (8735)_;
open
<06491> (8798)
thine eyes
<05869>_,
[and] thou shalt be satisfied
<07646> (8798)
with bread
<03899>_.
[It is] naught
<07451>_,
[it is] naught
<07451>_,
saith
<0559> (8799)
the buyer
<07069> (8802)_:
but when he is gone
<0235> (8801)
his way, then he boasteth
<01984> (8691)_.
There is
<03426>
gold
<02091>_,
and a multitude
<07230>
of rubies
<06443>_:
but the lips
<08193>
of knowledge
<01847>
[are] a precious
<03366>
jewel
<03627>_.
Take
<03947> (8798)
his garment
<0899>
that is surety
<06148> (8804)
[for] a stranger
<02114> (8801)_:
and take a pledge
<02254> (8798)
of him for a strange woman
<05237>_.
Bread
<03899>
of deceit
<08267>
[is] sweet
<06156>
to a man
<0376>_;
but afterwards
<0310>
his mouth
<06310>
shall be filled
<04390> (8735)
with gravel
<02687>_.
{deceit: Heb. lying, or, falsehood}
[Every] purpose
<04284>
is established
<03559> (8735)
by counsel
<06098>_:
and with good advice
<08458>
make
<06213> (8798)
war
<04421>_.
He that goeth about
<01980> (8802)
[as] a talebearer
<07400>
revealeth
<01540> (8802)
secrets
<05475>_:
therefore meddle
<06148> (8691)
not with him that flattereth
<06601> (8802)
with his lips
<08193>_.
{flattereth: or, enticeth}
Whoso curseth
<07043> (8764)
his father
<01>
or his mother
<0517>_,
his lamp
<05216>
shall be put out
<01846> (8799)
in obscure
<0380> (8676) <0380>
darkness
<02822>_.
{lamp: or, candle}
An inheritance
<05159>
[may be] gotten hastily
<0926> (8794) (8675) <0973> (8794)
at the beginning
<07223>_;
but the end
<0319>
thereof shall not be blessed
<01288> (8792)_.
Say
<0559> (8799)
not thou, I will recompense
<07999> (8762)
evil
<07451>_;
[but] wait on
<06960> (8761)
the LORD
<03068>_,
and he shall save
<03467> (8686)
thee.
Divers weights
<068> <068>
[are] an abomination
<08441>
unto the LORD
<03068>_;
and a false
<04820>
balance
<03976>
[is] not good
<02896>_.
{a false...: Heb. balance of deceit}
Man's
<01397>
goings
<04703>
[are] of the LORD
<03068>_;
how can a man
<0120>
then understand
<0995> (8799)
his own way
<01870>_?
[It is] a snare
<04170>
to the man
<0120>
[who] devoureth
<03216> (8804)
[that which is] holy
<06944>_,
and after
<0310>
vows
<05088>
to make enquiry
<01239> (8763)_.
A wise
<02450>
king
<04428>
scattereth
<02219> (8764)
the wicked
<07563>_,
and bringeth
<07725> (8686)
the wheel
<0212>
over them.
The spirit
<05397>
of man
<0120>
[is] the candle
<05216>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
searching
<02664> (8802)
all the inward parts
<02315>
of the belly
<0990>_.
{candle: or, lamp}
Mercy
<02617>
and truth
<0571>
preserve
<05341> (8799)
the king
<04428>_:
and his throne
<03678>
is upholden
<05582> (8804)
by mercy
<02617>_.
The glory
<08597>
of young men
<0970>
[is] their strength
<03581>_:
and the beauty
<01926>
of old men
<02205>
[is] the gray head
<07872>_.
The blueness
<02250>
of a wound
<06482>
cleanseth
<08562>
away evil
<07451>_:
so [do] stripes
<04347>
the inward parts
<02315>
of the belly
<0990>_.
{cleanseth...: Heb. is a purging medicine against}
