Genesis 13:12-18Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
12 Abram dwelt in the land of Chanaan; and Lot abode in the towns that were about the Jordan, and dwelt in Sodom.
13 And the men of Sodom were very wicked, and sinners before the face of the Lord, beyond measure.
14 And the Lord said to Abram, after Lot was separated from him: Lift up thy eyes, and look from the place wherein thou now art, to the north and to the south, to the east and to the west.
15 All the land which thou seest, I will give to thee, and to thy seed for ever.
16 And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: if any man be able to number the dust of the earth, he shall be able to number thy seed also.
17 Arise and walk through the land in the length, and in the breadth thereof: for I will give it to thee.
18 So Abram removing his tent came and dwelt by the vale of Mambre, which is in Hebron: and he built there an altar to the Lord.
Proverbs 14:27-15:4Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
27 The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to decline from the ruin of death.
28 In the multitude of people is the dignity of the king: and in the small number of people the dishonour of the prince.
29 He that is patient, is governed with much wisdom: but he that is impatient, exalteth his folly.
30 Soundness of heart is the life of the flesh: but envy is the rottenness of the bones.
31 He that oppresseth the poor, upbraideth his Maker: but he that hath pity on the poor, honoureth him.
32 The wicked man shall be driven out in his wickedness: but the just hath hope in his death.
33 In the heart of the prudent resteth wisdom, and it shall instruct all the ignorant.
34 Justice exalteth a nation: but sin maketh nations miserable.
35 A wise servant is acceptable to the king: he that is good for nothing shall feel his anger.
15 A mild answer breaketh wrath: but a harsh word stirreth up fury.
2 The tongue of the wise adorneth knowledge: but the mouth of fools bubbleth out folly.
3 The eyes of the Lord in every place behold the good and the evil.
4 A peaceable tongue is a tree of life: but that which is immoderate, shall crush the spirit.
