On Life and Conduct1 a Wine is a mocker b strong drink a brawler,
And whoever ▼
▼ Lit errsis intoxicated by it is not wise.
2 The terror of a king is like the growling of a lion;
He who provokes him to anger ▼
▼ Lit sins against, e forfeits his own life.
▼ Lit Ceasing, g Keeping away from strife is an honor for a man,
But any fool will ▼
▼ Lit burst outquarrel.
4 The i sluggard does not plow after the autumn,
So he ▼
▼ Lit asksbegs during the harvest and has nothing.
5 A plan in the heart of a man is like deep water,
But a man of understanding draws it out.
6 Many a man k proclaims his own loyalty,
But who can find a l trustworthy man?
7 A righteous man who m walks in his integrity—
n How blessed are his sons after him.
8 o A king who sits on the throne of justice
▼ Or SiftsDisperses all evil with his eyes.
9 q Who can say, “I have cleansed my heart,
I am pure from my sin”?
▼ Lit A stone and a stone, an ephah and an ephah, s Differing weights and differing measures,
Both of them are abominable to the Lord.
11 It is by his deeds that a lad ▼
▼ Or makes himself known, u distinguishes himself
If his conduct is pure and right.
12 The hearing v ear and the seeing eye,
The Lord has made both of them.
13 w Do not love sleep, or you will become poor;
Open your eyes, and you will be satisfied with ▼
▼ Lit breadfood.
14 “Bad, bad,” says the buyer,
But when he goes his way, then he boasts.
15 There is gold, and an abundance of ▼
▼ Or coralsjewels;
But the lips of knowledge are a more precious thing.
16 Take his garment when he becomes surety for a stranger;
And for foreigners, hold him in pledge.
17 z Bread obtained by falsehood is sweet to a man,
But afterward his mouth will be filled with gravel.
18 Prepare aa plans by consultation,
And ab make war by wise guidance.
19 He who ac goes about as a slanderer reveals secrets,
Therefore do not associate with ▼
▼ Lit one who opens his lips, ae a gossip.
20 He who af curses his father or his mother,
His ag lamp will go out in ▼
▼ Lit pupil (of eye)time of darkness.
21 An inheritance gained hurriedly at the beginning
Will not be blessed in the end.
22 ai Do not say, “I will repay evil”;
aj Wait for the Lord, and He will save you.
▼ Lit A stone and a stone, al Differing weights are an abomination to the Lord,
And a ▼
▼ Lit balance of deceit, an false scale is not good.
24 ao Man’s steps are ordained by the Lord,
How then can man understand his way?
25 It is a trap for a man to say rashly, “It is holy!”
And ap after the vows to make inquiry.
26 A aq wise king winnows the wicked,
▼ Lit turnsdrives the as threshing wheel over them.
27 The ▼
▼ Lit breath, au spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord,
Searching all the ▼
▼ Lit chambers of the bodyinnermost parts of his being.
▼ Lit Covenant loyaltyLoyalty and ax truth preserve the king,
And he upholds his throne by ▼
▼ Lit Covenant loyaltyrighteousness.
29 The glory of young men is their strength,
And the ▼
▼ Or splendor, ba honor of old men is their gray hair.
30 bb Stripes that wound scour away evil,
And strokes reach the ▼
▼ Lit chambers of the bodyinnermost parts.
