Proverbs 12Darby Translation (DARBY)

12 Whoso loveth discipline loveth knowledge, but he that hateth reproof is brutish.

A good [man] obtaineth favour of Jehovah; but a man of mischievous devices will he condemn.

A man shall not be established by wickedness; but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.

A woman of worth is a crown to her husband; but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.

The thoughts of the righteous are right; the counsels of the wicked are deceit.

The words of the wicked are a lying-in-wait for blood; but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.

Overthrow the wicked, and they are no [more]; but the house of the righteous shall stand.

A man is commended according to his wisdom; but he that is of a perverted heart shall be despised.

Better is he that is lightly esteemed, and hath a servant, than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread.

10 A righteous man is concerned for the life of his beast; but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.

11 He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread; but he that followeth the worthless is void of understanding.

12 The wicked desireth the net of evil [men]; but the root of the righteous yieldeth [fruit].

13 In the transgression of the lips is an evil snare; but a righteous [man] shall go forth out of trouble.

14 A man is satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth; and the recompense of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him.

15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes; but he that is wise hearkeneth unto counsel.

16 The vexation of the fool is presently known; but a prudent [man] covereth shame.

17 He that uttereth truth sheweth forth righteousness; but a false witness deceit.

18 There is that babbleth like the piercings of a sword; but the tongue of the wise is health.

19 The lip of truth shall be established for ever; but a lying tongue is but for a moment.

20 Deceit is in the heart of them that devise evil; but to the counsellors of peace is joy.

21 There shall no evil happen to a righteous [man]; but the wicked shall be filled with mischief.

22 Lying lips are an abomination to Jehovah; but they that deal truly are his delight.

23 A prudent man concealeth knowledge; but the heart of the foolish proclaimeth folly.

24 The hand of the diligent shall bear rule; but the slothful [hand] shall be under tribute.

25 Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop; but a good word maketh it glad.

26 The righteous guideth his neighbour; but the way of the wicked misleadeth them.

27 The slothful roasteth not what he took in hunting; but man's precious substance is to the diligent.

28 In the path of righteousness is life, and in the pathway thereof there is no death.
