On Life and Conduct1 A a good name is to be more desired than great wealth,
Favor is better than silver and gold.
2 The rich and the poor ▼
▼ Lit meet togetherhave a common bond,
The Lord is the c maker of them all.
3 The d prudent sees the evil and hides himself,
But the ▼
▼ Lit simplenaive go on, and are punished for it.
4 The reward of humility and the ▼
▼ Or reverencefear of the Lord
Are riches, honor and life.
5 g Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse;
He who guards himself will be far from them.
6 h Train up a child ▼
▼ Lit according to his wayin the way he should go,
Even when he is old he will not depart from it.
7 The j rich rules over the poor,
And the borrower becomes the lender’s slave.
8 He who k sows iniquity will reap vanity,
And the l rod of his fury will perish.
9 He who ▼
▼ Lit has a good eyeis n generous will be blessed,
For he o gives some of his food to the poor.
10 p Drive out the scoffer, and contention will go out,
Even strife and dishonor will cease.
11 He who loves q purity of heart
▼ Lit has grace on his lipswhose speech is s gracious, the king is his friend.
12 The eyes of the Lord preserve knowledge,
But He overthrows the words of the treacherous man.
13 The t sluggard says, “There is a lion outside;
I will be killed in the streets!”
14 The mouth of ▼
▼ Lit strange woman, v an adulteress is a deep pit;
He who is w cursed of the Lord will fall ▼
▼ Lit thereinto it.
15 Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child;
The y rod of discipline will remove it far from him.
16 He z who oppresses the poor to make ▼
▼ Lit muchmore for himself
Or who gives to the rich ab will only come to poverty.
17 ac Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise,
And apply your mind to my knowledge;
18 For it will be ad pleasant if you keep them within you,
▼ Lit They togetherThat they may be ready on your lips.
19 So that your af trust may be in the Lord,
I have ▼
▼ Lit made you knowtaught you today, even you.
20 Have I not written to you ▼
▼ Or previous, ai excellent things
Of counsels and knowledge,
21 To make you aj know the ▼
▼ Lit truthcertainty of the words of truth
That you may ▼
▼ Lit return to words of truth, am correctly answer him who sent you?
22 an Do not rob the poor because he is poor,
Or ao crush the afflicted at the gate;
23 For the Lord will ap plead their case
▼ Lit rob the soultake the life of those who rob them.
24 Do not associate with a man given to anger;
Or go with a ar hot-tempered man,
25 Or you will as learn his ways
▼ Lit takefind a snare for yourself.
26 Do not be among those who au give ▼
▼ Lit strike handspledges,
Among those who become guarantors for debts.
27 If you have nothing with which to pay,
Why should he aw take your bed from under you?
28 ax Do not move the ancient boundary
Which your fathers have set.
29 Do you see a man skilled in his work?
He will ay stand before kings;
He will not stand before obscure men.
