1 Be not thou a against b men, neither desire to be with them.
2 For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.
3 Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:
4 And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
5 A wise man is a; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.
6 For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy a: and in b of c there is safety.
7 Wisdom is too high for a a: he openeth not his mouth in the gate.
8 He that deviseth to do evil shall be called a mischievous person.
9 The thought of a is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.
10 If thou a in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.
11 If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;
12 If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that a the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his b?
13 My son, eat thou a, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste:
14 So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.
15 Lay not wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous; spoil not his resting place:
16 For a just man falleth seven times, and a up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.
17 Rejoice not when thine a falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth:
18 Lest the Lord see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him.
19 Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou a at the wicked;
20 For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the a of the wicked shall be put out.
21 My son, a thou the Lord and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change:
22 For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both?
23 These things also belong to the wise. It is not good to have a of persons in judgment.
24 He that saith unto the a, Thou art righteous; him shall the people curse, nations shall abhor him:
25 But to them that rebuke him shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come upon them.
26 Every man shall kiss his lips that giveth a right answer.
27 a thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house.
28 Be not a a against thy neighbour without cause; and b not with thy lips.
29 Say not, I will a so to him as he hath done to me: I will render to the man according to his work.
30 I went by the field of the a, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding;
31 And, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone a thereof was broken down.
32 Then I saw, and considered it well: I looked upon it, and received instruction.
33 Yet a little a, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:
34 So shall thy poverty come as one a; and thy want as an armed man.
