Proverbs 19

YLT 1 Better [is] the poor walking in his integrity, Than the perverse [in] his lips, who [is] a fool. NIV 1 Better a poor man whose walk is blameless than a fool whose lips are perverse. YLT 2 Also, without knowledge the soul [is] not good, And the hasty in feet is sinning. NIV 2 It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way. YLT 3 The folly of man perverteth his way, And against Jehovah is his heart wroth. NIV 3 A man's own folly ruins his life, yet his heart rages against the LORD. YLT 4 Wealth addeth many friends, And the poor from his neighbour is separated. NIV 4 Wealth brings many friends, but a poor man's friend deserts him. YLT 5 A false witness is not acquitted, Whoso breatheth out lies is not delivered. NIV 5 A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who pours out lies will not go free. YLT 6 Many entreat the face of the noble, And all have made friendship to a man of gifts. NIV 6 Many curry favor with a ruler, and everyone is the friend of a man who gives gifts. YLT 7 All the brethren of the poor have hated him, Surely also his friends have been far from him, He is pursuing words -- they are not! 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. YLT 8 Whoso is getting heart is loving his soul, He is keeping understanding to find good. NIV 8 He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; he who cherishes understanding prospers. YLT 9 A false witness is not acquitted, And whoso breatheth out lies perisheth. NIV 9 A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who pours out lies will perish. YLT 10 Luxury is not comely for a fool, Much less for a servant to rule among princes. NIV 10 It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury-- how much worse for a slave to rule over princes! YLT 11 The wisdom of a man hath deferred his anger, And his glory [is] to pass over transgression. NIV 11 A man's wisdom gives him patience; it is to his glory to overlook an offense. YLT 12 The wrath of a king [is] a growl as of a young lion, And as dew on the herb his good-will. NIV 12 A king's rage is like the roar of a lion, but his favor is like dew on the grass. YLT 13 A calamity to his father [is] a foolish son, 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. YLT 14 House and wealth [are] the inheritance of fathers, And from Jehovah [is] an understanding wife. NIV 14 Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the LORD. YLT 15 Sloth causeth deep sleep to fall, And an indolent soul doth hunger. NIV 15 Laziness brings on deep sleep, and the shiftless man goes hungry. YLT 16 Whoso is keeping the command is keeping his soul, Whoso is despising His ways dieth. NIV 16 He who obeys instructions guards his life, but he who is contemptuous of his ways will die. YLT 17 Whoso is lending [to] Jehovah is favouring the poor, And his deed He repayeth to him. NIV 17 He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward him for what he has done. YLT 18 Chastise thy son, for there is hope, And to put him to death lift not up thy soul. NIV 18 Discipline your son, for in that there is hope; do not be a willing party to his death. YLT 19 A man of great wrath is bearing punishment, For, if thou dost deliver, yet again thou dost add. NIV 19 A hot-tempered man must pay the penalty; if you rescue him, you will have to do it again. YLT 20 Hear counsel and receive instruction, So that thou art wise in thy latter end. NIV 20 Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise. YLT 21 Many [are] the purposes in a man's heart, And the counsel of Jehovah it standeth. NIV 21 Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails. YLT 22 The desirableness of a man [is] his kindness, And better [is] the poor than a liar. NIV 22 What a man desires is unfailing love; better to be poor than a liar. YLT 23 The fear of Jehovah [is] to life, And satisfied he remaineth -- he is not charged with evil. NIV 23 The fear of the LORD leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble. YLT 24 The slothful hath hidden his hand in a dish, Even unto his mouth he bringeth it not back. NIV 24 The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not even bring it back to his mouth! YLT 25 A scorner smite, and the simple acts prudently, And give reproof to the intelligent, He understandeth knowledge. NIV 25 Flog a mocker, and the simple will learn prudence; rebuke a discerning man, and he will gain knowledge. YLT 26 Whoso is spoiling a father causeth a mother to flee, A son causing shame, and bringing confusion. NIV 26 He who robs his father and drives out his mother is a son who brings shame and disgrace. YLT 27 Cease, my son, to hear instruction -- To err from sayings of knowledge. NIV 27 Stop listening to instruction, my son, and you will stray from the words of knowledge. YLT 28 A worthless witness scorneth judgment, And the mouth of the wicked swalloweth iniquity. NIV 28 A corrupt witness mocks at justice, and the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil. YLT 29 Judgments have been prepared for scorners, And stripes for the back of fools! NIV 29 Penalties are prepared for mockers, and beatings for the backs of fools.
