Proverbs 121 He that loueth instruction, loueth knowledge: but he that hateth correction, is a foole. 2 A good man getteth fauour of the Lord: but the man of wicked immaginations will hee condemne. 3 A man cannot be established by wickednesse: but the roote of the righteous shall not be mooued. 4 A vertuous woman is the crowne of her husband: but she that maketh him ashamed, is as corruption in his bones. 5 The thoughtes of the iust are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceitfull. 6 The talking of the wicked is to lye in waite for blood: but the mouth of the righteous will deliuer them. 7 God ouerthroweth the wicked, and they are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand. 8 A man shall be commended for his wisedome: but the froward of heart shalbe despised. 9 He that is despised, and is his owne seruant, is better then he that boasteth himselfe and lacketh bread. 10 A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the mercies of the wicked are cruell. 11 He that tilleth his lande, shalbe satisfied with bread: but he that followeth the idle, is destitute of vnderstanding. 12 The wicked desireth the net of euils: but the roote of the righteous giueth fruite. 13 The euill man is snared by the wickednesse of his lips, but the iust shall come out of aduersitie. 14 A man shalbe satiate with good things by the fruite of his mouth, and the recompence of a mans hands shall God giue vnto him. 15 The way of a foole is right in his owne eyes: but he that heareth counsell, is wise. 16 A foole in a day shall be knowen by his anger: but he that couereth shame, is wise. 17 He that speaketh trueth, will shewe righteousnes: but a false witnes vseth deceite. 18 There is that speaketh wordes like the prickings of a sworde: but the tongue of wise men is health. 19 The lip of trueth shall be stable for euer: but a lying tongue varieth incontinently. 20 Deceite is in the heart of them that imagine euill: but to the counsellers of peace shall be ioye. 21 There shall none iniquitie come to the iust: but the wicked are full of euill. 22 The lying lips are an abomination to the Lord: but they that deale truely are his delite. 23 A wise man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of the fooles publisheth foolishnes. 24 The hand of the diligent shall beare rule: but the idle shalbe vnder tribute. 25 Heauines in the heart of man doeth bring it downe: but a good worde reioyceth it. 26 The righteous is more excellent then his neighbour: but the way of the wicked will deceiue them. 27 The deceitfull man rosteth not, that hee tooke in hunting: but the riches of the diligent man are precious. 28 Life is in the way of righteousnesse, and in that path way there is no death.
