WBT 1 Better [is] the poor that walketh in his integrity, than [he that is] perverse in his lips, and is a fool. NIV 1 Better a poor man whose walk is blameless than a fool whose lips are perverse. WBT 2 Also, [that] the soul [be] without knowledge, [it is] not good; and he that hasteth with [his] feet sinneth. NIV 2 It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way. WBT 3 The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the LORD. NIV 3 A man's own folly ruins his life, yet his heart rages against the LORD. WBT 4 Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbor.

NIV 5 A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who pours out lies will not go free. WBT 6 Many will entreat the favor of the prince: and every man [is] a friend to him that giveth gifts. NIV 6 Many curry favor with a ruler, and everyone is the friend of a man who gives gifts. WBT 7 All the brethren of the poor do hate him: how much more do his friends go far from him? he pursueth [them with] words, [yet] they [are] wanting [to him]. NIV 7 A poor man is shunned by all his relatives-- how much more do his friends avoid him! Though he pursues them with pleading, they are nowhere to be found. WBT 8 He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good. NIV 8 He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; he who cherishes understanding prospers. WBT 9 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and [he that] speaketh lies shall perish. NIV 9 A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who pours out lies will perish. WBT 10 Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes. NIV 10 It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury-- how much worse for a slave to rule over princes! WBT 11 The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and [it is] his glory to pass over a transgression. NIV 11 A man's wisdom gives him patience; it is to his glory to overlook an offense. WBT 12 The king's wrath [is] as the roaring of a lion; but his favor [is] as dew upon the grass. NIV 12 A king's rage is like the roar of a lion, but his favor is like dew on the grass. WBT 13 A foolish son [is] the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife [are] a continual dropping. NIV 13 A foolish son is his father's ruin, and a quarrelsome wife is like a constant dripping. WBT 14 House and riches [are] the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife [is] from the LORD. NIV 14 Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the LORD. WBT 15 Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger. NIV 15 Laziness brings on deep sleep, and the shiftless man goes hungry. WBT 16 He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul; [but] he that despiseth his ways shall die. NIV 16 He who obeys instructions guards his life, but he who is contemptuous of his ways will die. WBT 17 He that hath pity upon the poor, lendeth to the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again. NIV 17 He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward him for what he has done. WBT 18 Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying. NIV 18 Discipline your son, for in that there is hope; do not be a willing party to his death. WBT 19 A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou deliver [him], yet thou must do it again. NIV 19 A hot-tempered man must pay the penalty; if you rescue him, you will have to do it again. WBT 20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end. NIV 20 Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise. WBT 21 [There are] many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand. NIV 21 Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails. WBT 22 The desire of a man [is] his kindness: and a poor man [is] better than a liar.

WBT 23 The fear of the LORD [tendeth] to life: and [he that hath it] shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil. NIV 23 The fear of the LORD leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble. WBT 24 A slothful [man] hideth his hand in [his] bosom, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again. NIV 24 The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not even bring it back to his mouth! WBT 25 Smite a scorner and the simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, [and] he will understand knowledge. NIV 25 Flog a mocker, and the simple will learn prudence; rebuke a discerning man, and he will gain knowledge. WBT 26 He that wasteth [his] father, [and] chaseth away [his] mother, [is] a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach. NIV 26 He who robs his father and drives out his mother is a son who brings shame and disgrace. WBT 27 Cease, my son, to hear the instruction [that causeth] to err from the words of knowledge.
