The Proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father; but a foolish son is the grief of his mother.
Treasures of wickedness profit nothing; but righteousness delivereth from death.
Jehovah suffereth not the soul of the righteous [man] to famish; but he repelleth the craving of the wicked.
He cometh to want that dealeth with a slack hand; but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
He that gathereth in summer is a wise son; he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.
Blessings are upon the head of a righteous [man]; but the mouth of the wicked covereth violence. a7
The memory of the righteous [man] shall be blessed; b but the name of the wicked shall rot.
