Proverbs 10

10:1 The Prouerbes of Solomon: A wise sonne maketh a glad father: but a foolish sonne is the heauinesse of his mother. 10:2 Treasures of wickednesse profit nothing: but righteousnes deliuereth from death. 10:3 The Lord will not suffer the soule of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked. 10:4 Hee becommeth poore that dealeth with a slacke hand: but the hand of the diligent, maketh rich. 10:5 Hee that gathereth in Summer, is a wise sonne: but hee that sleepeth in haruest, is a sonne that causeth shame. 10:6 Blessings are vpon the head of the iust: but violence couereth the mouth of the wicked. 10:7 The memorie of the iust is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot. 10:8 The wise in heart will receiue commaundements: but a prating foole shall fall. 10:9 He that walketh vprightly, walketh surely: but he that peruerteth his wayes, shalbe knowen. 10:10 Hee that winketh with the eye, causeth sorrow: but a prating foole shall fall. 10:11 The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence couereth the mouth of the wicked. 10:12 Hatred stirreth vp strifes: but loue couereth all sinnes. 10:13 In the lips of him that hath vnderstanding, wisedome is found: but a rod is for the backe of him that is voyd of vnderstanding. 10:14 Wise men lay vp knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is neere destruction. 10:15 The rich mans wealth is his strong citie: the destruction of the poore is their pouertie. 10:16 The labour of the righteous tendeth to life: the fruite of the wicked to sinne. 10:17 He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction: but hee that refuseth reproofe, erreth. 10:18 Hee that hideth hatred with lying lippes, and he that vttereth a slander, is a foole. 10:19 In the multitude of words there wanteth not sinne: but he that refraineth his lippes, is wise. 10:20 The tongue of the iust is as choise siluer: the heart of the wicked is little worth. 10:21 The lippes of the righteous feed many: but fooles die for want of wisedome. 10:22 The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and hee addeth no sorrow with it. 10:23 It is as a sport to a foole to doe mischiefe: but a man of vnderstanding hath wisedome. 10:24 The feare of the wicked, it shall come vpon him: but the desire of the righteous shalbe granted. 10:25 As the whirlewinde passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an euerlasting foundation. 10:26 As vineger to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that send him. 10:27 The feare of the Lord prolongeth dayes: but the yeeres of the wicked shalbe shortened. 10:28 The hope of the righteous shall bee gladnesse: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish. 10:29 The way of the Lord is strength to the vpright: but destruction shall bee to the workers of iniquitie. 10:30 The righteous shall neuer bee remooued: but the wicked shall not inhabite the earth. 10:31 The mouth of the iust bringeth foorth wisedome: but the froward tongue shalbe cut out. 10:32 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardnesse.
