From Proverbs Chapters 11 and 3
11:1 A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is
11:2 When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
11:3 The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness
of transgressors shall destroy them.
11:4 Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth
11:5 The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: but the
wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.
11:6 The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them: but
transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness.
11:7 When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish: and the hope
of unjust men perisheth.
11:8 The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in
11:9 An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through
knowledge shall the just be delivered.
11:10 When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and
when the wicked perish, there is shouting.
11:11 By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is
overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.
11:12 He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of
understanding holdeth his peace.
11:13 A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful
spirit concealeth the matter.
11:14 Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of
counsellors there is safety.
11:15 He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it: and he that
hateth suretiship is sure.
11:16 A gracious woman retaineth honour: and strong men retain riches.
11:17 The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel
troubleth his own flesh.
11:18 The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth
righteousness shall be a sure reward.
11:19 As righteousness tendeth to life: so he that pursueth evil
pursueth it to his own death.
11:20 They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the LORD: but
such as are upright in their way are his delight.
11:21 Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but
the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
11:22 As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman which is
11:23 The desire of the righteous is only good: but the expectation of
the wicked is wrath.
11:24 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that
withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.
11:25 The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be
watered also himself.
11:26 He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: but blessing
shall be upon the head of him that selleth it.
11:27 He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: but he that
seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.
11:28 He that trusteth in his riches shall fall; but the righteous shall
flourish as a branch.
11:29 He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: and the
fool shall be servant to the wise of heart.
11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth
souls is wise.
11:31 Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more
the wicked and the sinner.
3:1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine
heart keep my commandments:
3:2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to
3:3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck;
write them upon the table of thine heart:
3:4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God
3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own
3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
3:7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
3:8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
3:9 Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all
3:10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall
burst out with new wine.
3:11 My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of
3:12 For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in
whom he delighteth.
3:13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth
3:14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver,
and the gain thereof than fine gold.
3:15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst
desire are not to be compared unto her.
3:16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches
3:17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
3:18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is
every one that retaineth her.
3:19 The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he
established the heavens.
3:20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down
3:21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and
3:22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.
3:23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not
3:24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie
down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.
3:25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the
wicked, when it cometh.
3:26 For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from
3:27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the
power of thine hand to do it.
3:28 Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I
will give; when thou hast it by thee.
3:29 Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely
3:30 Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.
3:31 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.
3:32 For the froward is abomination to the LORD: but his secret is with
3:33 The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he
blesseth the habitation of the just.
3:34 Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the
3:35 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of
