Proverbs
Chapter 20

20:1 Wine `is' a scorner -- strong drink `is' noisy, And any going astray in it is not wise.

20:2 The fear of a king `is' a growl as of a young lion, He who is causing him to be wroth is wronging his soul.

20:3 An honour to a man is cessation from strife, And every fool intermeddleth.

20:4 Because of winter the slothful plougheth not, He asketh in harvest, and there is nothing.

20:6 A multitude of men proclaim each his kindness, And a man of stedfastness who doth find?

20:7 The righteous is walking habitually in his integrity, O the happiness of his sons after him!

20:8 A king sitting on a throne of judgment, Is scattering with his eyes all evil,

20:9 Who saith, `I have purified my heart, I have been cleansed from my sin?'

20:10 A stone and a stone, an ephah and an ephah, Even both of them `are' an abomination to Jehovah.

20:11 Even by his actions a youth maketh himself known, Whether his work be pure or upright.

20:13 Love not sleep, lest thou become poor, Open thine eyes -- be satisfied `with' bread.

20:14 `Bad, bad,' saith the buyer, And going his way then he boasteth himself.

20:15 Substance, gold, and a multitude of rubies, Yea, a precious vessel, `are' lips of knowledge.

20:16 Take his garment when a stranger hath been surety, And for strangers pledge it.

20:17 Sweet to a man `is' the bread of falsehood, And afterwards is his mouth filled `with' gravel.

20:18 Purposes by counsel thou dost establish, And with plans make thou war.

20:19 A revealer of secret counsels is the busybody, And for a deceiver `with' his lips make not thyself surety.

20:20 Whoso is vilifying his father and his mother, Extinguished is his lamp in blackness of darkness.

20:21 An inheritance gotten wrongly at first, Even its latter end is not blessed.

20:22 Do not say, `I recompense evil,' Wait for Jehovah, and He delivereth thee.

20:23 An abomination to Jehovah `are' a stone and a stone, And balances of deceit `are' not good.

20:24 From Jehovah `are' the steps of a man, And man -- how understandeth he his way?

20:25 A snare to a man `is' he hath swallowed a holy thing, And after vows to make inquiry.

20:26 A wise king is scattering the wicked, And turneth back on them the wheel.

20:27 The breath of man `is' a lamp of Jehovah, Searching all the inner parts of the heart.

20:28 Kindness and truth keep a king, And he hath supported by kindness his throne.

20:29 The beauty of young men is their strength, And the honour of old men is grey hairs.

20:30 The bandages of a wound thou removest with the evil, Also the plagues of the inner parts of the heart!
