Proverbs Chapter 10 (Index)

001  The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother.

002  Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.

003  The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked.

004  He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.

005  He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.

006  Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.

007  The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.

008  The wise in heart will receive commandments: but a prating fool shall fall.

009  He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.

010  He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a prating fool shall fall.

011  The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.

012  Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.

013  In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.

014  Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.

015  The rich man's wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor is their poverty.

016  The labour of the righteous tendeth to life: the fruit of the wicked to sin.

017  He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth.

018  He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.

019  In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.

020  The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth.

021  The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom.

022  The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

023  It is as sport to a fool to do mischief: but a man of understanding hath wisdom.

024  The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him: but the desire of the righteous shall be granted.

025  As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.

026  As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that send him.

027  The fear of the LORD prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened.

028  The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.

029  The way of the LORD is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.

030  The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.

031  The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be cut out.

032  The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness.
