Proverbs chapter 19

Better is the poor that liveth godly, than the blasphemer that is but a fool.
Where no discretion is, there the soul is not well: and who so is swift on foot, stumbleth hastily.
Foolishness maketh a man to go out of his way, and then is his heart unpatient against the LORD.
Riches make many friends, but the poor is forsaken of his own friends.
A false witness shall not remain unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape.
The multitude hangeth upon great men, and every man favoureth him that giveth rewards. As for the poor, he is hated among all his brethren: yea his own friends forsake him, and he that giveth credence unto words, getteth nothing.
He that is wise loveth his own soul: and who so hath understanding, shall prosper.
A false witness shall not remain unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.
Delicate ease becometh not a fool, much more unseemly is it, a bond man to have the rule of princes.
A wise man putteth off displeasure, and it is his honour to let some faults pass.
The king's disfavour is like the roaring of a Lion, but his friendship is like the dew upon the grass.
An undiscreet son is the heaviness of his father, and a brauling wife is like the top of an house, where thorow it is ever dropping.
House and riches may a man have by the heritage of his elders, but a discreet woman is the gift of the LORD.
Slothfulness bringeth sleep, and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.
Who so keepeth the commandment, keepeth his own soul: but he that regardeth not his way, shall die.
He that hath pity upon the poor, lendeth unto the LORD: and look what he layeth out, it shall be paid him again.
Chasten thy son while there is hope, but let not thy soul be moved to slay him.
For great wrath bringeth harm, therefore let him go, and so mayest thou teach him more nurture.
O give ear unto good counsel, and be content to be reformed, that thou mayest be wise here after.
There are many devices in a man's heart, nevertheless the counsel of the LORD shall stond.
It is a man's worship to do good, and better it is to be a poor man, than a dissembler.
The fear of the LORD preserveth the life, yea it giveth plenteousness, without the visitation of any plague.
A slothful body shuteth his hand into his bosom, so that he can not put it to his mouth.
If thou smitest a scornful person, the ignorant shall take better heed: and if thou reprovest one that hath understanding, he will be the wiser.
He that hurteth his father or shooteth out his mother, is a shameful and an unworthy son.
My son heareth no more the doctrine that leadeth thee away from the words of understanding.
A false witness laugheth judgement to scorn, and the mouth of the ungodly eateth up wickedness.
Punishments are ordained for the scornful, and stripes for fools' backs.
