Proverbs 22 - Interlinear Bible


On Life and Conduct

1 A good name is to be more desired than great wealth, Favor is better than silver and gold.
bw{j !ex b'h'Zim.W @,s,Kim b'r r,v{[em ~ev r'x.bin
2 The rich and the poor have a common bond, The LORD is the maker of them all.
3 The prudent sees the evil and hides himself, But the naive go on, and are punished for it.
4 The reward of humility and the fear of the LORD Are riches, honor and life.
5 Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse; He who guards himself will be far from them.
