Proverbs 19

19:1 Better is the poore that walketh in his integrity, then he that is peruerse in his lippes, and is a foole. 19:2 Also, that the soule be without knowledge, it is not good, and hee that hasteth with his feete, sinneth. 19:3 The foolishnesse of man peruerteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the Lord. 19:4 Wealth maketh many friends: but the poore is separated from his neighbour. 19:5 A false witnesse shall not be vnpunished: and he that speaketh lyes, shal not escape. 19:6 Many will entreate the fauour of the Prince: and euery man is a friend to him that giueth gifts. 19:7 All the brethren of the poore doe hate him: howe much more doe his friends goe farre from him Hee pursueth them with words, yet they are wanting to him. 19:8 He that getteth wisedome loueth his owne soule: he that keepeth vnderstanding shall find good. 19:9 A false witnesse shall not be vnpunished, and hee that speaketh lyes, shall perish. 19:10 Delight is not seemely for a foole: much lesse for a seruant to haue rule ouer princes. 19:11 The discretion of a man deferreth his anger: and it is his glory to passe ouer a transgression. 19:12 The kings wrath is as the roaring of a lyon: but his fauour is as dewe vpon the grasse. 19:13 A foolish sonne is the calamity of his father; and the contentions of a wife are a continuall dropping. 19:14 House and riches, are the inheritance of fathers; and a prudent wife is from the Lord. 19:15 Slouthfulnesse casteth into a deep sleepe: and an idle soule shall suffer hunger. 19:16 He that keepeth the commandement, keepeth his owne soule: but hee that despiseth his wayes, shall die. 19:17 Hee that hath pity vpon the poore, lendeth vnto the Lord; and that which he hath giuen, will he pay him againe. 19:18 Chasten thy sonne while there is hope; and let not thy soule spare for his crying. 19:19 A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou deliuer him, yet thou must doe it againe. 19:20 Heare counsell, and receiue instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end. 19:21 There are many deuices in a mans heart: neuerthelesse the counsell of the Lord, that shall stand. 19:22 The desire of a man is his kindnesse: and a poore man is better then a lyar. 19:23 The feare of the Lord tendeth to life, and he that hath it shall abide satisfied: he shall not be visited with euill. 19:24 A slouthfull man hideth his hand in his bosome, and wil not so much as bring it to his mouth againe. 19:25 Smite a scorner, and the simple will beware; and reprooue one that hath vnderstanding, and he will vnderstand knowledge. 19:26 He that wasteth his father, and chaseth away his mother, is a sonne that causeth shame, and bringeth reproch. 19:27 Cease, my sonne, to heare the instruction, that causeth to erre from the words of knowledge. 19:28 An vngodly witnesse scorneth iudgement: and the mouth of the wicked deuoureth iniquitie. 19:29 Iudgements are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the backe of fooles.
