Proverbs 20:2-12 RSV

2 The dread wrath of a king is like the growling of a lion; he who provokes him to anger forfeits his life.
3 It is an honor for a man to keep aloof from strife; but every fool will be quarreling.
4 The sluggard does not plow in the autumn; he will seek at harvest and have nothing.
5 The purpose in a man's mind is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out.
6 Many a man proclaims his own loyalty, but a faithful man who can find?
7 A righteous man who walks in his integrity--blessed are his sons after him!
8 A king who sits on the throne of judgment winnows all evil with his eyes.
9 Who can say, "I have made my heart clean; I am pure from my sin"?
10 Diverse weights and diverse measures are both alike an abomination to the LORD.
11 Even a child makes himself known by his acts, whether what he does is pure and right.
12 The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the LORD has made them both.
