Proverbs 20

1 - Wine [is] a mocker, strong drink [is] raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.
2 - The fear of a king [is] as the roaring of a lion: [whoso] provoketh him to anger sinneth [against] his own soul.
3 - [It is] an honour for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling.
4 - The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; [therefore] shall he beg in harvest, and [have] nothing.
5 - Counsel in the heart of man [is like] deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it out.
6 - Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?
7 - The just [man] walketh in his integrity: his children [are] blessed after him.
8 - A king that sitteth in the throne of judgment scattereth away all evil with his eyes.
9 - Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?
10 - Divers weights, [and] divers measures, both of them [are] alike abomination to the LORD.
11 - Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work [be] pure, and whether [it be] right.
12 - The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.
13 - Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, [and] thou shalt be satisfied with bread.
14 - [It is] naught, [it is] naught, saith the buyer: but when he is gone his way, then he boasteth.
15 - There is gold, and a multitude of rubies: but the lips of knowledge [are] a precious jewel.
16 - Take his garment that is surety [for] a stranger: and take a pledge of him for a strange woman.
17 - Bread of deceit [is] sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.
18 - [Every] purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.
19 - He that goeth about [as] a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.
20 - Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness.
21 - An inheritance [may be] gotten hastily at the beginning; but the end thereof shall not be blessed.
22 - Say not thou, I will recompense evil; [but] wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee.
23 - Divers weights [are] an abomination unto the LORD; and a false balance [is] not good.
24 - Man's goings [are] of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?
25 - [It is] a snare to the man [who] devoureth [that which is] holy, and after vows to make enquiry.
26 - A wise king scattereth the wicked, and bringeth the wheel over them.
27 - The spirit of man [is] the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.
28 - Mercy and truth preserve the king: and his throne is upholden by mercy.
29 - The glory of young men [is] their strength: and the beauty of old men [is] the gray head.
30 - The blueness of a wound cleanseth away evil: so [do] stripes the inward parts of the belly.
