1 Qui diligit disciplinam, diligit scientiam; qui autem odit increpationes, insipiens est.
2 Qui bonus est, hauriet gratiam a Domino, virum autem versutum ipse condemnabit.
3 Non roborabitur homo ex impietate, et radix iustorum non commovebitur.
4 Mulier diligens corona est viro suo, et quasi putredo in ossibus eius, quae est inhonesta.
5 Cogitationes iustorum iudicia, et consilia impiorum fraudulentia.
6 Verba impiorum insidiantur sanguini, os iustorum liberabit eos.
7 Subvertuntur impii et iam non sunt, domus autem iustorum permanebit.
8 Ad doctrinam suam laudabitur vir; qui autem perversus corde est, patebit contemptui.
9 Melior est pauper, qui ministrat sibi, quam gloriosus et indigens pane.
10 Curat iustus iumentorum suorum animas, viscera autem impiorum crudelia.
11 Qui operatur terram suam, satiabitur panibus; qui autem sectatur vana, vecors est.
12 Desiderat impius laqueum pessimorum, radix autem iustorum proficiet.
13 Propter peccata labiorum irretitur malus, effugiet autem iustus de angustia.
14 De fructu oris sui unusquisque replebitur bonis, et iuxta opera manuum suarum retribuetur ei.
15 Via stulti recta in oculis eius; qui autem sapiens est, audit consilia.
16 Fatuus statim indicat iram suam, dissimulat autem iniuriam callidus.
17 Qui spirat veritatem, index iustitiae est, testis autem mendax, fraudulentiae.
18 Est qui temere loquitur et quasi gladio pungit, lingua autem sapientium sanitas est.
19 Labium veritatis firmum erit in perpetuum, ad momentum autem lingua mendacii.
20 Dolus in corde cogitantium mala; qui autem pacis ineunt consilia, sequitur eos gaudium.
21 Nulla calamitas obveniet iusto, impii autem replebuntur malo.
22 Abominatio est Domino labia mendacia, qui autem fideliter agunt, placent ei.
23 Homo versutus celat scientiam, et cor insipientium provocat stultitiam.
24 Manus fortium dominabitur, quae autem remissa est, tributis serviet.
25 Maeror in corde viri humiliabit illum, et sermo bonus laetificabit eum.
26 In rectum ducit amicum iustus, iter autem impiorum decipiet eos.
27 Non assabit ignavia praedam suam, sed substantia pretiosa erit viro industrio.
28 In semita iustitiae vita, est autem etiam iter apertum ad mortem.
King James Version
1 Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish.
2 A good man obtaineth favour of the LORD: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn.
3 A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.
4 A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.
5 The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.
6 The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.
7 The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.
8 A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.
9 He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread.
10 A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.
11 He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.
12 The wicked desireth the net of evil men: but the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit.
13 The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.
14 A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompence of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him.
15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
16 A fool's wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covereth shame.
17 He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit.
18 There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.
19 The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.
20 Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy.
21 There shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief.
22 Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.
23 A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.
24 The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute.
25 Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.
26 The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.
27 The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious.
28 In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death.
