1 The a of the heart in man, and the answer of the b, is from the Lord.
2 All the ways of a man are a in his b; but the Lord weigheth the spirits.
3 a thy works unto the Lord, and thy b shall be established.
4 The Lord hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.
5 Every one that is a in heart is an abomination to the Lord: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
6 By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the a of the Lord men b from c.
7 When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his a to be at b with him.
8 a is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.
9 A man’s heart a his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.
10 A divine sentence is in the lips of the king: his mouth transgresseth not in judgment.
11 A just weight and balance are the Lord’s: all the weights of the bag are his work.
12 It is an abomination to kings to commit a: for the throne is established by righteousness.
13 a b are the delight of kings; and they love him that speaketh right.
14 The wrath of a king is as messengers of death: but a wise man will pacify it.
15 In the light of the king’s countenance is life; and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.
16 How much better is it to get a than gold! and to get b rather to be chosen than silver!
17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.
18 a goeth before destruction, and an b spirit before a fall.
19 Better it is to be of an a spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.
20 He that a a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso b in the Lord, c is he.
21 The wise in heart shall be called a: and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.
22 Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it: but the instruction of fools is folly.
23 The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.
24 Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
25 There is a a that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
26 He that laboureth laboureth for himself; for his mouth craveth it of him.
27 An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning a.
28 A froward man soweth a: and a whisperer separateth chief friends.
29 A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way that is not good.
30 He shutteth his eyes to devise froward things: moving his lips he bringeth evil to pass.
31 a is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness.
32 He that is slow to a is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.
33 The a is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the Lord.
