Proverbs 22

22:1 A Good name is rather to be chosen then great riches, and louing fauour rather then siluer & golde. 22:2 The rich and poore meet together: the Lord is the maker of them all. 22:3 A prudent man foreseeth the euill, and hideth himselfe: but the simple passe on, and are punished. 22:4 By humilitie and the feare of the Lord, are riches, and honour, and life. 22:5 Thornes and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doeth keepe his soule, shalbe farre from them. 22:6 Traine vp a childe in the way he should goe: and when he is olde, hee will not depart from it. 22:7 The rich ruleth ouer the poore, and the borrower is seruant to the lender. 22:8 Hee that soweth iniquitie, shall reape vanitie: and the rodde of his anger shall faile. 22:9 Hee that hath a bountifull eye, shall bee blessed: for hee giueth of his bread to the poore. 22:10 Cast out the scorner, and contention shall goe out; yea strife, and reproch shall cease. 22:11 He that loueth purenesse of heart, for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend. 22:12 The eyes of the Lord preserue knowledge, and he ouerthroweth the words of the transgressour. 22:13 The slothfull man sayth, There is a lyon without, I shall be slaine in the streetes. 22:14 The mouth of strange women is a deepe pit: he that is abhorred of the Lord shall fall therein. 22:15 Foolishnesse is bound in the heart of a child: but the rod of correction shal driue it farre from him. 22:16 Hee that oppresseth the poore to increase his riches, and he that giueth to the rich, shall surely come to want. 22:17 Bow downe thine eare, and heare the words of the wise, and apply thine heart vnto my knowledge. 22:18 For it is a pleasant thing, if thou keepe them within thee; they shall withall be fitted in thy lippes. 22:19 That thy trust may bee in the Lord, I haue made knowen to thee this day, euen to thee. 22:20 Haue not I written to thee excellent things in counsailes and knowledge: 22:21 That I might make thee knowe the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answere the words of trueth to them that send vnto thee 22:22 Rob not the poore because he is poore, neither oppresse the afflicted in the gate. 22:23 For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoile the soule of those that spoiled them. 22:24 Make no friendship with an angrie man: and with a furious man thou shalt not goe; 22:25 Lest thou learne his wayes, and get a snare to thy soule. 22:26 Be not thou one of them that strike hands, or of them that are sureties for debts. 22:27 If thou hast nothing to pay, why should he take away thy bed from vnder thee 22:28 Remoue not the ancient land marke, which thy fathers haue set. 22:29 Seest thou a man diligent in his businesse hee shall stand before kings, he shall not stand before meane men.
