Proverbs 22


22:1 A [good] name [is] rather to be chosen than great riches,
 [and] loving favor rather than silver and gold.
22:2 The rich and poor meet together: the LORD [is] the maker of
 them all.
22:3 A prudent [man] foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but
 the simple pass on, and are punished.
22:4 By humility [and] the fear of the LORD [are] riches, and
 honor, and life.
22:5 Thorns [and] snares [are] in the way of the froward: he
 that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.
22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is
 old, he will not depart from it.
22:7 The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower [is]
 servant to the lender.
22:8 He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of
 his anger shall fail.
22:9 He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he
 giveth of his bread to the poor.
22:10 Cast out the scorner, and contention shall end; yes,
 strife and reproach shall cease.
22:11 He that loveth pureness of heart, [for] the grace of his
 lips the king [shall be] his friend.
22:12 The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge, and he
 overthroweth the words of the transgressor.
22:13 The slothful [man] saith, [There is] a lion without, I
 shall be slain in the streets.
22:14 The mouth of strange women [is] a deep pit: he that is
 abhorred by the LORD shall fall therein.
22:15 Foolishness [is] bound in the heart of a child; [but] the
 rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
22:16 He that oppresseth the poor to increase his [riches],
 [and] he that giveth to the rich, [shall] surely [come] to
 want.
22:17 Bow down thy ear, and hear the words of the wise, and
 apply thy heart to my knowledge.
22:18 For [it is] a pleasant thing if thou keepest them within
 thee; they shall withal be fitted in thy lips.
22:19 That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to
 thee this day, even to thee.
22:20 Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels
 and knowledge,
22:21 That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of
 truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them
 that send to thee?
22:22 Rob not the poor, because he [is] poor: neither oppress
 the afflicted in the gate:
22:23 For the LORD will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of
 those that spoiled them.
22:24 Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious
 man thou shalt not go:
22:25 Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.
22:26 Be not thou [one] of them that strike hands, [or] of them
 that are sureties for debts.
22:27 If thou hast nothing to pay, why should he take away thy
 bed from under thee?
22:28 Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have
 set.
22:29 Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand
 before kings; he shall not stand before mean [men].
