Proverbs 12

12:1 Whoso loueth instruction, loueth knowledge: but he that hateth reproofe, is brutish. 12:2 A good man obtaineth fauour of the Lord: but a man of wicked deuices will he condemne. 12:3 A man shall not bee established by wickednesse: but the roote of the righteous shall not be mooued. 12:4 A vertuous woman is a crowne to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed, is as rottennesse in his bones. 12:5 The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit. 12:6 The words of the wicked are to lie in waite for blood: but the mouth of the vpright shall deliuer them. 12:7 The wicked are ouerthrowen, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand. 12:8 A man shall be commended according to his wisedome: but hee that is of a peruerse heart, shall be despised. 12:9 Hee that is despised and hath a seruant, is better then he that honoureth himselfe, and lacketh bread. 12:10 A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruell. 12:11 Hee that tilleth his land, shall bee satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vaine persons, is void of vnderstanding. 12:12 The wicked desireth the net of euill men: but the roote of the righteous yeeldeth fruit. 12:13 The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lippes: but the iust shall come out of trouble. 12:14 A man shall bee satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth, and the recompence of a mans hands shall bee rendred vnto him. 12:15 The way of a foole is right in his owne eyes: but he that hearkeneth vnto counsell, is wise. 12:16 A fooles wrath is presently knowen: but a prudent man couereth shame. 12:17 He that speaketh trueth, sheweth foorth righteousnesse: but a false witnesse, deceit. 12:18 There is that speaketh like the pearcings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health. 12:19 The lippe of trueth shall bee established for euer: but a lying tongue is but for a moment. 12:20 Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine euill: but to the counsellours of peace, is ioy. 12:21 There shall no euill happen to the iust: but the wicked shall bee filled with mischiefe. 12:22 Lying lippes are abomination to the Lord: but they that deale truely, are his delight. 12:23 A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fooles proclaimeth foolishnesse. 12:24 The hand of the diligent shall beare rule: but the slouthfull shall bee vnder tribute. 12:25 Heauinesse in the heart of man maketh it stoope: but a good word maketh it glad. 12:26 The righteous is more excellent then his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them. 12:27 The slouthfull man rosteth not that which he tooke in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious. 12:28 In the way of righteousnesse is life, and in the path-way thereof there is no death.
