Contrast the Upright and the Wicked1A a wise son accepts his father’s discipline,
But a b scoffer does not listen to rebuke.
2From the fruit of a man’s mouth he ▼
▼ Lit eats, d enjoys good,
But the ▼
▼ Lit souldesire of the treacherous is f violence.
3The one who g guards his mouth preserves his life;
The one who h opens wide his lips ▼
▼ Lit ruin is hiscomes to ruin.
4The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing,
But the soul of the diligent is made fat.
5A righteous man j hates falsehood,
But a wicked man ▼
▼ Lit causes a bad odor and causes shame, l acts disgustingly and shamefully.
6Righteousness m guards the ▼
▼ Lit blamelessness of wayone whose way is blameless,
But wickedness subverts the ▼
▼ Lit sinsinner.
7There is one who p pretends to be rich, but has nothing;
▼ Lit impoverishes himselfpretends to be r poor, but has great wealth.
8The ransom of a man’s life is his wealth,
But the poor hears no rebuke.
9The s light of the righteous ▼
▼ I.e. shines brightlyrejoices,
But the u lamp of the wicked goes out.
10Through insolence ▼
▼ Lit givescomes nothing but strife,
But wisdom is with those who receive counsel.
11Wealth obtained by ▼
▼ Lit vanityfraud dwindles,
But the one who gathers ▼
▼ Or gradually; lit on the handby labor increases it.
12Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
But desire ▼
▼ Lit comingfulfilled is a tree of life.
13The one who z despises the word will be ▼
▼ Lit pledged to itin debt to it,
But the one who fears the commandment will be ab rewarded.
▼ Or lawteaching of the wise is a ad fountain of life,
To turn aside from the ae snares of death.
15 af Good understanding produces favor,
But the way of the treacherous is hard.
16Every ag prudent man acts with knowledge,
But a fool ▼
▼ Lit spreads outdisplays folly.
17A wicked messenger falls into adversity,
But ai a faithful envoy brings healing.
18Poverty and shame will come to him who aj neglects ▼
▼ Or instructiondiscipline,
But he who regards reproof will be honored.
19Desire realized is sweet to the soul,
But it is an abomination to fools to turn away from evil.
20 al He who walks with wise men will be wise,
But the companion of fools will suffer harm.
21 am Adversity pursues sinners,
But the an righteous will be rewarded with prosperity.
22A good man ao leaves an inheritance to his ▼
▼ Lit sons’ sonschildren’s children,
And the aq wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.
23 ar Abundant food is in the fallow ground of the poor,
▼ Lit there is what is sweptit is swept away by injustice.
24He who at withholds his ▼
▼ I.e. correction or disciplinerod hates his son,
But he who loves him ▼
▼ Lit seeks him diligently with discipline, aw disciplines him diligently.
25The ax righteous ▼
▼ Lit eats to the satisfaction of his soulhas enough to satisfy his appetite,
But the stomach of the az wicked is in need.
