1The proverbs of #Prov. 1:1; 25:1Solomon:
#Prov. 15:20; 17:21, 25; 19:13; 29:3, 15A wise son makes a glad father,
But a foolish son is the grief of his mother.
2#Ps. 49:7; Prov. 11:4; 21:6; Ezek. 7:19; (Luke 12:19, 20)Treasures of wickedness profit nothing,
#Dan. 4:27But righteousness delivers from death.
3#Ps. 34:9, 10; 37:25; Prov. 28:25; (Matt. 6:33)The Lord will not allow the righteous soul to famish,
But He casts away the desire of the wicked.
4#Prov. 19:15He who has a slack hand becomes poor,
But #Prov. 12:24; 13:4; 21:5the hand of the diligent makes rich.
5He who gathers in #Prov. 6:8summer is a wise son;
He who sleeps in harvest is #Prov. 19:26a son who causes shame.
6Blessings are on the head of the righteous,
But violence covers the mouth of the wicked.
7#Ps. 112:6; Eccl. 8:10The memory of the righteous is blessed,
But the name of the wicked will rot.
8The wise in heart will receive commands,
#Prov. 10:10But a prating fool will fall.
9#(Ps. 23:4; Prov. 3:23; 28:18; Is. 33:15, 16)He who walks with integrity walks securely,
But he who perverts his ways will become known.
10He who winks with the eye causes trouble,
But a prating fool will fall.
11The mouth of the righteous is a well of life,
But violence covers the mouth of the wicked.
12Hatred stirs up strife,
But #Prov. 17:9; (1 Cor. 13:4–7; James 5:20); 1 Pet. 4:8love covers all sins.
13Wisdom is found on the lips of him who has understanding,
But #Prov. 26:3a rod is for the back of him who is devoid of understanding.
14Wise people store up knowledge,
But #Prov. 18:7the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.
15The #Job 31:24; Ps. 52:7; Prov. 18:11; (1 Tim. 6:17)rich man’s wealth is his strong city;
The destruction of the poor is their poverty.
16The labor of the righteous leads to #Prov. 6:23life,
The wages of the wicked to sin.
17He who keeps instruction is in the way of life,

And #Ps. 15:3; 101:5whoever spreads slander is a fool.
19#Job 11:2; (Prov. 18:21); Eccl. 5:3In the multitude of words sin is not lacking,
But #Prov. 17:27; (James 1:19; 3:2)he who restrains his lips is wise.
20The tongue of the righteous is choice silver;
The heart of the wicked is worth little.
21The lips of the righteous feed many,
But fools die for lack of wisdom.
22#Gen. 24:35; 26:12; Deut. 8:18; Ps. 37:22; Prov. 8:21The blessing of the Lord makes one rich,
And He adds no sorrow with it.

But a man of understanding has wisdom.
24#Job 15:21; Prov. 1:27; Is. 66:4The fear of the wicked will come upon him,
And #Ps. 145:19; Prov. 15:8; Matt. 5:6; (1 John 5:14, 15)the desire of the righteous will be granted.
25When the whirlwind passes by, #Ps. 37:9, 10the wicked is no more,
But #Ps. 15:5; Prov. 12:3; Matt. 7:24, 25the righteous has an everlasting foundation.
26As vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes,
So is the lazy man to those who send him.
27#Prov. 9:11The fear of the Lord prolongs days,
But #Job 15:32the years of the wicked will be shortened.
28The hope of the righteous will be gladness,
But the #Job 8:13expectation of the wicked will perish.

But #Ps. 1:6destruction will come to the workers of iniquity.

But the wicked will not inhabit the earth.

But the perverse tongue will be cut out.
32The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable,
But the mouth of the wicked what is perverse.
