I will also laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your dread comes,
Even in laughter the heart may be in pain, And the end of joy may be grief.
The poor is hated even by his neighbor, But those who love the rich are many.
The LORD has made everything for its own purpose, Even the wicked for the day of evil.
When a man's ways are pleasing to the LORD , He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous, Both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD .
It is also not good to fine the righteous, Nor to strike the noble for their uprightness.
Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is considered wise; When he closes his lips, he is considered prudent.
When a wicked man comes, contempt also comes, And with dishonor comes scorn.
He also who is slack in his work Is brother to him who destroys.
Also it is not good for a person to be without knowledge, And he who hurries his footsteps errs.
The sluggard buries his hand in the dish, But will not even bring it back to his mouth.
Differing weights and differing measures, Both of them are abominable to the LORD .
The hearing ear and the seeing eye, The LORD has made both of them.
He who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor Will also cry himself and not be answered.
Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.
My son, if your heart is wise, My own heart also will be glad;
These also are sayings of the wise. To show partiality in judgment is not good.
These also are proverbs of Solomon which the men of Hezekiah, king of Judah, transcribed.
Do not answer a fool according to his folly, Or you will also be like him.
He who turns away his ear from listening to the law, Even his prayer is an abomination.
