Young's Literal Translation
Make your ear attentive to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding;
For wisdom will enter your heart And knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;
My son, do not forget my teaching, But let your heart keep my commandments;
Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.
Then he taught me and said to me, "Let your heart hold fast my words; Keep my commandments and live;
Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life.
And you say, "How I have hated instruction! And my heart spurned reproof!
Who with perversity in his heart continually devises evil, Who spreads strife.
A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that run rapidly to evil,
Bind them continually on your heart; Tie them around your neck.
The one who commits adultery with a woman is lacking sense; He who would destroy himself does it.
Bind them on your fingers; Write them on the tablet of your heart.
And I saw among the naive, And discerned among the youths A young man lacking sense,
And behold, a woman comes to meet him, Dressed as a harlot and cunning of heart.
Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways, Do not stray into her paths.
"O naive ones, understand prudence; And, O fools, understand wisdom.
"Whoever is naive, let him turn in here!" To him who lacks understanding she says,
"Whoever is naive, let him turn in here," And to him who lacks understanding she says,
The wise of heart will receive commands, But a babbling fool will be ruined.
On the lips of the discerning, wisdom is found, But a rod is for the back of him who lacks understanding.
The tongue of the righteous is as choice silver, The heart of the wicked is worth little.
The lips of the righteous feed many, But fools die for lack of understanding.
He who despises his neighbor lacks sense, But a man of understanding keeps silent.
The perverse in heart are an abomination to the LORD , But the blameless in their walk are His delight.
A man will be praised according to his insight, But one of perverse mind will be despised.
He who tills his land will have plenty of bread, But he who pursues worthless things lacks sense.
Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil, But counselors of peace have joy.
A prudent man conceals knowledge, But the heart of fools proclaims folly.
Anxiety in a man's heart weighs it down, But a good word makes it glad.
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But desire fulfilled is a tree of life.
The heart knows its own bitterness, And a stranger does not share its joy.
Even in laughter the heart may be in pain, And the end of joy may be grief.
The backslider in heart will have his fill of his own ways, But a good man will be satisfied with his.
A tranquil heart is life to the body, But passion is rottenness to the bones.
Wisdom rests in the heart of one who has understanding, But in the hearts of fools it is made known.
The lips of the wise spread knowledge, But the hearts of fools are not so.
Sheol and Abaddon lie open before the LORD , How much more the hearts of men !
A joyful heart makes a cheerful face, But when the heart is sad, the spirit is broken.
The mind of the intelligent seeks knowledge, But the mouth of fools feeds on folly.
All the days of the afflicted are bad, But a cheerful heart has a continual feast.
Folly is joy to him who lacks sense, But a man of understanding walks straight.
The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer, But the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things.
Bright eyes gladden the heart; Good news puts fat on the bones.
He who neglects discipline despises himself, But he who listens to reproof acquires understanding.
The plans of the heart belong to man, But the answer of the tongue is from the LORD .
Everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD ; Assuredly, he will not be unpunished.
The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps.
The wise in heart will be called understanding, And sweetness of speech increases persuasiveness.
The heart of the wise instructs his mouth And adds persuasiveness to his lips.
The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold, But the LORD tests hearts.
Why is there a price in the hand of a fool to buy wisdom, When he has no sense?
A man lacking in sense pledges And becomes guarantor in the presence of his neighbor.
He who has a crooked mind finds no good, And he who is perverted in his language falls into evil.
A joyful heart is good medicine, But a broken spirit dries up the bones.
A fool does not delight in understanding, But only in revealing his own mind.
Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, But humility goes before honor.
The mind of the prudent acquires knowledge, And the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
The foolishness of man ruins his way, And his heart rages against the LORD .
He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; He who keeps understanding will find good.
Many plans are in a man's heart, But the counsel of the LORD will stand.
A plan in the heart of a man is like deep water, But a man of understanding draws it out.
Who can say, "I have cleansed my heart, I am pure from my sin "?
The king's heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD ; He turns it wherever He wishes.
Every man's way is right in his own eyes, But the LORD weighs the hearts.
Haughty eyes and a proud heart, The lamp of the wicked, is sin.
He who loves purity of heart And whose speech is gracious, the king is his friend.
Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of discipline will remove it far from him.
Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, And apply your mind to my knowledge;
For as he thinks within himself, so he is. He says to you, "Eat and drink!" But his heart is not with you.
Apply your heart to discipline And your ears to words of knowledge.
My son, if your heart is wise, My own heart also will be glad;
Do not let your heart envy sinners, But live in the fear of the LORD always .
Listen, my son, and be wise, And direct your heart in the way
Give me your heart, my son, And let your eyes delight in my ways.
Your eyes will see strange things And your mind will utter perverse things.
And you will be like one who lies down in the middle of the sea, Or like one who lies down on the top of a mast.
For their minds devise violence, And their lips talk of trouble.
If you say, "See, we did not know this," Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts? And does He not know it who keeps your soul? And will He not render to man according to his work?
Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles;
I passed by the field of the sluggard And by the vineyard of the man lacking sense,
When I saw, I reflected upon it; I looked, and received instruction.
As the heavens for height and the earth for depth, So the heart of kings is unsearchable .
Like one who takes off a garment on a cold day, or like vinegar on soda, Is he who sings songs to a troubled heart.
Like an earthen vessel overlaid with silver dross Are burning lips and a wicked heart.
When he speaks graciously, do not believe him, For there are seven abominations in his heart.
Oil and perfume make the heart glad, So a man's counsel is sweet to his friend.
Be wise, my son, and make my heart glad, That I may reply to him who reproaches me.
As in water face reflects face, So the heart of man reflects man.
Know well the condition of your flocks, And pay attention to your herds;
How blessed is the man who fears always, But he who hardens his heart will fall into calamity.
He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But he who walks wisely will be delivered.
The way of an eagle in the sky, The way of a serpent on a rock, The way of a ship in the middle of the sea, And the way of a man with a maid.
The heart of her husband trusts in her, And he will have no lack of gain.
