Proverbs 17

1 - Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife.

2 - A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causeth shame, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren.

3 - The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD trieth the hearts.

4 - A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.

5 - Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.

6 - Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.

7 - Excellent speech becometh not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince.

8 - A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth.

9 - He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.

10 - A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.

11 - An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.

12 - Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man, rather than a fool in his folly.

13 - Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.

14 - The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water: therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.

15 - He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.

16 - Wherefore is there a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing he hath no heart to it?

17 - A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

18 - A man void of understanding striketh hands, and becometh surety in the presence of his friend.

19 - He loveth transgression that loveth strife: and he that exalteth his gate seeketh destruction.

20 - He that hath a froward heart findeth no good: and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief.

21 - He that begetteth a fool doeth it to his sorrow: and the father of a fool hath no joy.

22 - A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

23 - A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.

24 - Wisdom is before him that hath understanding; but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.

25 - A foolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to her that bare him.

26 - Also to punish the just is not good, nor to strike princes for equity.

27 - He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.

28 - Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.
