Proverbs 22

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31]

22:1 A good name is more desirable than great riches, and loving favor is better than silver and gold.

22:2 The rich and the poor have this in common: Yahweh is the maker of them all.

22:3 A prudent man sees danger, and hides himself; but the simple pass on, and suffer for it.

22:4 The result of humility and the fear of Yahweh is wealth, honor, and life.

22:5 Thorns and snares are in the path of the wicked: whoever guards his soul stays from them.

22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.

22:7 The rich rule over the poor. The borrower is servant to the lender.

22:8 He who sows wickedness reaps trouble, and the rod of his fury will be destroyed.

22:9 He who has a generous eye will be blessed; for he shares his food with the poor.

22:10 Drive out the mocker, and strife will go out; yes, quarrels and insults will stop.

22:11 He who loves purity of heart and speaks gracefully is the king's friend.

22:12 The eyes of Yahweh watch over knowledge; but he frustrates the words of the unfaithful.

22:13 The sluggard says, "There is a lion outside! I will be killed in the streets!"

22:14 The mouth of an adulteress is a deep pit: he who is under Yahweh's wrath will fall into it.

22:15 Folly is bound up in the heart of a child: the rod of discipline drives it far from him.

22:16 Whoever oppresses the poor for his own increase and whoever gives to the rich, both come to poverty.

22:17 Turn your ear, and listen to the words of the wise. Apply your heart to my teaching.

22:18 For it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you, if all of them are ready on your lips.

22:19 That your trust may be in Yahweh, I teach you today, even you.

22:20 Haven't I written to you thirty excellent things of counsel and knowledge,

22:21 To teach you truth, reliable words, to give sound answers to the ones who sent you?

22:22 Don't exploit the poor, because he is poor; and don't crush the needy in court;

22:23 for Yahweh will plead their case, and plunder the life of those who plunder them.

22:24 Don't befriend a hot-tempered man, and don't associate with one who harbors anger:

22:25 lest you learn his ways, and ensnare your soul.

22:26 Don't you be one of those who strike hands, of those who are collateral for debts.

22:27 If you don't have means to pay, why should he take away your bed from under you?

22:28 Don't move the ancient boundary stone, which your fathers have set up.

22:29 Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will serve kings. He won't serve obscure men.
