Proverbs 24

TMBA 1 Be thou not envious of evil men, neither desire to be with them; NIV 1 Do not envy the wicked, do not desire their company; TMBA 2 for their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief. NIV 2 for their hearts plot violence, and their lips talk about making trouble. TMBA 3 Through wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; NIV 3 By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; TMBA 4 and by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches. NIV 4 through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures. TMBA 5 A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength. NIV 5 The wise prevail through great power, and those who have knowledge muster their strength. TMBA 6 For by wise counsel thou shalt wage thy war, and in the multitude of counselors there is safety. NIV 6 Surely you need guidance to wage war, and victory is won through many advisers. TMBA 7 Wisdom is too high for a fool; he openeth not his mouth in the gate. NIV 7 Wisdom is too high for fools; in the assembly at the gate they must not open their mouths. TMBA 8 He that deviseth to do evil shall be called a wicked person. NIV 8 Whoever plots evil will be known as a schemer. TMBA 9 The thinking of foolishness is sin, and the scorner is an abomination to men. NIV 9 The schemes of folly are sin, and people detest a mocker. TMBA 10 If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small. NIV 10 If you falter in a time of trouble, how small is your strength! TMBA 11 If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain-- NIV 11 Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. TMBA 12 if thou sayest, "Behold, we knew it not"--doth not He that pondereth the heart consider it? And He that keepeth thy soul, doth He not know it? And shall not He render to every man according to his works? NIV 12 If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done? TMBA 13 My son, eat thou honey because it is good, and the honeycomb which is sweet to thy taste. NIV 13 Eat honey, my son, for it is good; honey from the comb is sweet to your taste. TMBA 14 So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul when thou hast found it; then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off. NIV 14 Know also that wisdom is like honey for you: If you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. TMBA 15 Lie not in wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous; spoil not his resting place; NIV 15 Do not lurk like a thief near the house of the righteous, do not plunder their dwelling place; TMBA 16 for a just man falleth seven times and riseth up again, but the wicked shall fall into trouble. NIV 16 for though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes. TMBA 17 Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth, NIV 17 Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when they stumble, do not let your heart rejoice, TMBA 18 lest the LORD see it and it displease Him, and He turn away His wrath from him. NIV 18 or the LORD will see and disapprove and turn his wrath away from them. TMBA 19 Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious of the wicked; NIV 19 Do not fret because of evildoers or be envious of the wicked, TMBA 20 for there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out. NIV 20 for the evildoer has no future hope, and the lamp of the wicked will be snuffed out. TMBA 21 My son, fear thou the LORD and the king, and mingle not with them that are given to change; NIV 21 Fear the LORD and the king, my son, and do not join with rebellious officials, TMBA 22 for their calamity shall rise suddenly, and who knoweth the ruin of them both? NIV 22 for those two will send sudden destruction on them, and who knows what calamities they can bring? TMBA 23 These sayings also belong to the wise: It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment. NIV 23 These also are sayings of the wise: To show partiality in judging is not good: TMBA 24 He that saith unto the wicked, "Thou art righteous": him shall the people curse; nations shall abhor him. NIV 24 Whoever says to the guilty, “You are innocent,” will be cursed by peoples and denounced by nations. TMBA 25 But to them that rebuke him shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come upon them. NIV 25 But it will go well with those who convict the guilty, and rich blessing will come on them. TMBA 26 Every man that answereth right words, giveth a kiss on the lips. NIV 26 An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips. TMBA 27 Prepare thy work outside, and make ready the field for thyself; and afterwards build thine house. NIV 27 Put your outdoor work in order and get your fields ready; after that, build your house. TMBA 28 Be not a witness against thy neighbor without cause, and deceive not with thy lips. NIV 28 Do not testify against your neighbor without cause— would you use your lips to mislead? TMBA 29 Say not: "I will do so to him as he hath done to me; I will render to the man according to his work." NIV 29 Do not say, “I’ll do to them as they have done to me; I’ll pay them back for what they did.” TMBA 30 I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding; NIV 30 I went past the field of a sluggard, past the vineyard of someone who has no sense; TMBA 31 and lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down. NIV 31 thorns had come up everywhere, the ground was covered with weeds, and the stone wall was in ruins. TMBA 32 Then I saw and considered it well; I looked upon it, and received instruction: NIV 32 I applied my heart to what I observed and learned a lesson from what I saw: TMBA 33 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep-- NIV 33 A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest— TMBA 34 so shall thy poverty come as one that wandereth, and thy want as an armed man. NIV 34 and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man.
