Chapter 17

  1. 1. Better
    H2896
    is a dry
    H2720
    morsel,
    H6595
    and quietness
    H7962
    therewith, than an house
    H1004
    full
    H4392
    of sacrifices
    H2077
    with strife.
    H7379
  2. 2. A wise
    H7919
    servant
    H5650
    shall have rule
    H4910
    over a son
    H1121
    that causeth shame,
    H954
    and shall have part
    H2505
    of the inheritance
    H5159
    among
    H8432
    the brethren.
    H251
  3. 3. The fining pot
    H4715
    is for silver,
    H3701
    and the furnace
    H3564
    for gold:
    H2091
    but the LORD
    H3068
    trieth
    H974
    the hearts.
    H3826
  4. 4. A wicked doer
    H7489
    giveth heed
    H7181
    to false
    H205
    lips;
    H8193
    and a liar
    H8267
    giveth ear
    H238
    to a naughty
    H1942
    tongue.
    H3956
  5. 5. Whoso mocketh
    H3932
    the poor
    H7326
    reproacheth
    H2778
    his Maker:
    H6213
    and he that is glad
    H8056
    at calamities
    H343
    shall not be unpunished.
    H5352
  6. 6. Children's
    H1121
    children
    H1121
    are the crown
    H5850
    of old men;
    H2205
    and the glory
    H8597
    of children
    H1121
    are their fathers.
    H1
  7. 7. Excellent
    H3499
    speech
    H8193
    becometh
    H5000
    not a fool:
    H5036
    much less do lying
    H8267
    lips
    H8193
    a prince.
    H5081
  8. 8. A gift
    H7810
    is as a precious
    H2580
    stone
    H68
    in the eyes
    H5869
    of him that hath
    H1167
    it: whithersoever it turneth,
    H6437
    it prospereth.
    H7919
  9. 9. He that covereth
    H3680
    a transgression
    H6588
    seeketh
    H1245
    love;
    H160
    but he that repeateth
    H8138
    a matter
    H1697
    separateth
    H6504
    very friends.
    H441
  10. 10. A reproof
    H1606
    entereth
    H5181
    more into a wise man
    H995
    than an hundred
    H3967
    stripes
    H5221
    into a fool.
    H3684
  11. 11. An evil
    H7451
    man seeketh
    H1245
    only rebellion:
    H4805
    therefore a cruel
    H394
    messenger
    H4397
    shall be sent
    H7971
    against him.
  12. 12. Let a bear
    H1677
    robbed
    H7909
    of her whelps meet
    H6298
    a man,
    H376
    rather than
    H408
    a fool
    H3684
    in his folly.
    H200
  13. 13. Whoso rewardeth
    H7725
    evil
    H7451
    for good,
    H2896
    evil
    H7451
    shall not depart
    H4185
    H4185
    from his house.
    H1004
  14. 14. The beginning
    H7225
    of strife
    H4066
    is as when one letteth out
    H6362
    water:
    H4325
    therefore leave off
    H5203
    contention,
    H7379
    before
    H6440
    it be meddled
    H1566
    with.
  15. 15. He that justifieth
    H6663
    the wicked,
    H7563
    and he that condemneth
    H7561
    the just,
    H6662
    even they both
    H8147
    are abomination
    H8441
    to the LORD.

    H4242
    in the hand
    H3027
    of a fool
    H3684
    to get
    H7069
    wisdom,
    H2451
    seeing he hath no heart
    H3820
    to it?
  17. 17. A friend
    H7453
    loveth
    H157
    at all times,
    H6256
    and a brother
    H251
    is born
    H3205
    for adversity.
    H6869
  18. 18. A man
    H120
    void
    H2638
    of understanding
    H3820
    striketh
    H8628
    hands,
    H3709
    and becometh
    H6148
    surety
    H6161
    in the presence
    H6440
    of his friend.
    H7453
  19. 19. He loveth
    H157
    transgression
    H6588
    that loveth
    H157

    H4683
    and he that exalteth
    H1361
    his gate
    H6607
    seeketh
    H1245
    destruction.
    H7667

    H6141
    heart
    H3820

    and he that hath a perverse
    H2015
    tongue
    H3956
    falleth
    H5307
    into mischief.
    H7451
  21. 21. He that begetteth
    H3205
    a fool
    H3684
    doeth it to his sorrow:

    H5036
    hath no joy.

  22. 22. A merry
    H8056
    heart
    H3820
    doeth good
    H3190
    like a medicine:

    H7307
    drieth
    H3001
    the bones.

    H3947

    H734

    him.

    H376
    of understanding
    H8394
    is of an excellent
    H3368
    H7119
    spirit.

    H2803
    wise:
    H2450
    and he that shutteth
    H331
    his lips
    H8193
    is esteemed a man of understanding.
