On Life and Conduct1 a Better is a poor man who b walks in his integrity
Than he who is perverse in ▼
▼ Lit his lipsspeech and is a fool.
2Also it is not good for a person to be without knowledge,
And he who hurries ▼
▼ Lit with his feet, e his footsteps ▼
▼ Lit sinserrs.
3The g foolishness of man ruins his way,
And his heart h rages against the Lord.
4 i Wealth adds many friends,
But a poor man is separated from his friend.
5A j false witness will not go unpunished,
And he who ▼
▼ Lit breathes, l tells lies will not escape.
6 m Many will seek the favor of a ▼
▼ Or noblegenerous man,
And every man is a friend to him who o gives gifts.
7All the brothers of a poor man hate him;
How much more do his p friends abandon him!
He q pursues them with words, but they are ▼
▼ Lit notgone.
8He who gets ▼
▼ Lit heartwisdom loves his own soul;
He who keeps understanding will t find good.
9A u false witness will not go unpunished,
And he who ▼
▼ Lit breathestells lies will perish.
10Luxury is w not fitting for a fool;
Much less for a x slave to rule over princes.
11A man’s y discretion makes him slow to anger,
And it is his glory z to overlook a transgression.
12The aa king’s wrath is like the roaring of a lion,
But his favor is like ab dew on the grass.
13A ac foolish son is destruction to his father,
And the ad contentions of a wife are a constant dripping.
14House and wealth are an ae inheritance from fathers,
But a prudent wife is from the Lord.
15 af Laziness casts into a deep sleep,
And an idle ▼
▼ Lit soulman will suffer hunger.
16He who ah keeps the commandment keeps his soul,
But he who ▼
▼ Lit despisesis careless of ▼
▼ Lit waysconduct will die.
17One who ak is gracious to a poor man lends to the Lord,
And He will repay him for his ▼
▼ Or benefits, am good deed.
18 an Discipline your son while there is hope,
And do not desire ▼
▼ Lit causing him to diehis death.
19 A man of great anger will bear the penalty,
For if you rescue him, you will only have to do it again.
20 ap Listen to counsel and accept discipline,
That you may be wise ▼
▼ Lit in your latter endthe rest of your days.
21Many ar plans are in a man’s heart,
But the as counsel of the Lord will stand.
22What is desirable in a man is his ▼
▼ Or loyaltykindness,
And it is better to be a poor man than a liar.
▼ Or reverence, av fear of the Lord leads to life,
So that one may sleep aw satisfied ▼
▼ Lit not visited, ay untouched by evil.
24The az sluggard buries his hand ba in the dish,
But will not even bring it back to his mouth.
25 bb Strike a scoffer and the ▼
▼ Lit simplenaive may become shrewd,
But bd reprove one who has understanding and he will ▼
▼ Lit discerngain knowledge.
26He bf who assaults his father and drives his mother away
Is a shameful and disgraceful son.
27Cease listening, my son, to discipline,
And you will stray from the words of knowledge.
28A rascally witness makes a mockery of justice,
And the mouth of the wicked ▼
▼ Or swallows, bh spreads iniquity.
▼ Gr RodsJudgments are prepared for bj scoffers,
And bk blows for the back of fools.
