Mishlei (Book of Proverbs), Chapter 14

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 Every wise woman buildeth her house; but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 He that walketh in his uprightness feareth HaShem; but he that is perverse in his ways despiseth Him.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride; but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 Where no oxen are, the crib is clean; but much increase is by the strength of the ox.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 A faithful witness will not lie; but a false witness breatheth forth lies.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not; but knowledge is easy unto him that hath discernment.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 Go from the presence of a foolish man, for thou wilt not perceive the lips of knowledge.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 The wisdom of the prudent is to look well to his way; but the folly of fools is deceit.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 Amends pleadeth for fools; but among the upright there is good will.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 The heart knoweth its own bitterness; and with its joy no stranger can intermeddle.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 The house of the wicked shall be overthrown; but the tent of the upright shall flourish.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 Even in laughter the heart acheth; and the end of mirth is heaviness.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 The dissembler in heart shall have his fill from his own ways; and a good man shall be satisfied from himself.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 The thoughtless believeth every word; but the prudent man looketh well to his going.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil; but the fool behaveth overbearingly, and is confident.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly; and a man of wicked devices is hated.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 The thoughtless come into possession of folly; but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 The evil bow before the good, and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 The poor is hated even of his own neighbour; but the rich hath many friends.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth; but he that is gracious unto the humble, happy is he.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 Shall they not go astray that devise evil? But mercy and truth shall be for them that devise good.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 In all labour there is profit; but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'24 The crown of the wise is their riches; but the folly of fools remaineth folly.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000018-QINU`"'25 A true witness delivereth souls; but he that breatheth forth lies is all deceit.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000019-QINU`"'26 In the fear of HaShem a man hath strong confidence; and his children shall have a place of refuge.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001A-QINU`"'27 The fear of HaShem is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001B-QINU`"'28 In the multitude of people is the king's glory; but in the want of people is the ruin of the prince.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001C-QINU`"'29 He that is slow to anger is of great understanding; but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001D-QINU`"'30 A tranquil heart is the life of the flesh; but envy is the rottenness of the bones.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001E-QINU`"'31 He that oppresseth the poor blasphemeth his Maker; but he that is gracious unto the needy honoureth Him.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001F-QINU`"'32 The wicked is thrust down in his misfortune; but the righteous, even when he is brought to death, hath hope.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000020-QINU`"'33 In the heart of him that hath discernment wisdom resteth; but in the inward part of fools it maketh itself known.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000021-QINU`"'34 Righteousness exalteth a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000022-QINU`"'35 The king's favour is toward a servant that dealeth wisely; but his wrath striketh him that dealeth shamefully.
