1 The wicked a when no man pursueth: but the b are bold as a lion.
2 For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.
3 A poor man that a the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.
4 They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.
5 Evil men a not judgment: but they that seek the Lord understand all things.
6 Better is the poor that walketh in his a, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
7 Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of a men b his father.
8 He that by a and unjust gain b his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.
9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the a, even his b shall be abomination.
10 Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall a himself into his own b: but the upright shall have good c in possession.
11 The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the a that hath understanding searcheth him out.
12 When a men do rejoice, there is great glory: but when the wicked rise, a man is hidden.
13 He that a his sins shall not prosper: but whoso b and c them shall have mercy.
14 Happy is the man that a alway: but he that b his heart shall fall into mischief.
15 As a a, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.
16 The prince that wanteth understanding is also a great oppressor: but he that hateth a shall prolong his days.
17 A man that doeth violence to the a of any person shall b; let no man stay him.
18 Whoso a uprightly shall be saved: but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.
19 He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.
20 A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh a to be b shall not be innocent.
21 To have a of persons is not good: for for a b of c that man will transgress.
22 He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.
23 He that a a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that b with the tongue.
24 Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer.
25 He that is of a a heart stirreth up b: but he that putteth his c in the Lord shall be d.
26 He that a in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.
27 He that giveth unto the a shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.
28 When the a rise, men hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase.
