1 The a heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.
2 Every way of a man is right in his a: but the Lord b the c.
3 To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the Lord than a.
4 a, and a b heart, and c plowing of the wicked, is sin.
5 The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is a only to want.
6 The getting of a by a lying tongue is a b tossed to and fro of them that seek death.
7 The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them; because they refuse to do judgment.
8 a way of man is froward and strange: but as for the pure, his work is right.
9 It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, a with a brawling b in a c.
10 The soul of the wicked desireth evil: his a findeth no favour in his eyes.
11 When the a is punished, the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.
12 The righteous man wisely considereth the house of the a: but God overthroweth the wicked for their wickedness.
13 Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the a, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.
14 A gift in secret pacifieth a: and a reward in the bosom strong wrath.
15 It is joy to the just to do judgment: but destruction shall be to the workers of a.
16 The man that a out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.
17 He that loveth a shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be b.
18 The wicked shall be a a for the righteous, and the transgressor for the upright.
19 It is better to a in the wilderness, than with a b and an angry woman.
20 There is a to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man b it up.
21 He that followeth after a and mercy findeth b, righteousness, and honour.
22 A a man scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof.
23 Whoso keepeth his a and his b keepeth his soul from troubles.
24 Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath.
25 The desire of the a killeth him; for his hands refuse to b.
26 He a greedily all the day long: but the righteous b and spareth not.
27 The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?
28 A false witness shall perish: but the man that heareth speaketh constantly.
29 A wicked man a his face: but as for the upright, he directeth his way.
30 There is no wisdom nor a nor counsel against the Lord.
31 The a is prepared against the day of battle: but b is of the Lord.
