Proverbs of Solomon. A wise son causeth a father to rejoice, And a foolish son [is] an affliction to his mother.
Treasures of wickedness profit not, And righteousness delivereth from death.
Jehovah causeth not the soul of the righteous to hunger, And the desire of the wicked He thrusteth away.
Poor [is] he who is working -- a slothful hand, And the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
Whoso is gathering in summer [is] a wise son, Whoso is sleeping in harvest [is] a son causing shame.
Blessings [are] for the head of the righteous, And the mouth of the wicked cover doth violence.
The remembrance of the righteous [is] for a blessing, And the name of the wicked doth rot.
The wise in heart accepteth commands, And a talkative fool kicketh.
Whoso is walking in integrity walketh confidently, And whoso is perverting his ways is known.
Whoso is winking the eye giveth grief, And a talkative fool kicketh.
