Proverbs 12

1He that loueth instruction, loueth knowledge: but he that hateth correction, is a foole.

2A good man getteth fauour of the Lord: but the man of wicked immaginations will hee condemne.

3A man cannot be established by wickednesse: but the roote of the righteous shall not be mooued.

4A vertuous woman is the crowne of her husband: but she that maketh him ashamed, is as corruption in his bones.

5The thoughtes of the iust are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceitfull.

6The talking of the wicked is to lye in waite for blood: but the mouth of the righteous will deliuer them.

7God ouerthroweth the wicked, and they are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.

8A man shall be commended for his wisedome: but the froward of heart shalbe despised.

9He that is despised, and is his owne seruant, is better then he that boasteth himselfe and lacketh bread.

10A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the mercies of the wicked are cruell.

11He that tilleth his lande, shalbe satisfied with bread: but he that followeth the idle, is destitute of vnderstanding.

12The wicked desireth the net of euils: but the roote of the righteous giueth fruite.

13The euill man is snared by the wickednesse of his lips, but the iust shall come out of aduersitie.

14A man shalbe satiate with good things by the fruite of his mouth, and the recompence of a mans hands shall God giue vnto him.

15The way of a foole is right in his owne eyes: but he that heareth counsell, is wise.

16A foole in a day shall be knowen by his anger: but he that couereth shame, is wise.

17He that speaketh trueth, will shewe righteousnes: but a false witnes vseth deceite.

18There is that speaketh wordes like the prickings of a sworde: but the tongue of wise men is health.

19The lip of trueth shall be stable for euer: but a lying tongue varieth incontinently.

20Deceite is in the heart of them that imagine euill: but to the counsellers of peace shall be ioye.

21There shall none iniquitie come to the iust: but the wicked are full of euill.

22The lying lips are an abomination to the Lord: but they that deale truely are his delite.

23A wise man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of the fooles publisheth foolishnes.

24The hand of the diligent shall beare rule: but the idle shalbe vnder tribute.

25Heauines in the heart of man doeth bring it downe: but a good worde reioyceth it.

26The righteous is more excellent then his neighbour: but the way of the wicked will deceiue them.

27The deceitfull man rosteth not, that hee tooke in hunting: but the riches of the diligent man are precious.

28Life is in the way of righteousnesse, and in that path way there is no death.
