Proverbs 24


24:1 Be not thou envious against evil men, neither desire to be
 with them.
24:2 For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk
 of mischief.
24:3 Through wisdom is a house built; and by understanding it is
 established:
24:4 And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all
 precious and pleasant riches.
24:5 A wise man [is] strong; and a man of knowledge increaseth
 strength.
24:6 For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in
 multitude of counselors [there is] safety.
24:7 Wisdom [is] too high for a fool: he openeth not his mouth
 in the gate.
24:8 He that deviseth to do evil shall be called a mischievous
 person.
24:9 The thought of foolishness [is] sin: and the scorner [is]
 an abomination to men.
24:10 [If] thou faintest in the day of adversity, thy strength
 [is] small.
24:11 If thou forbearest to deliver [them that are] drawn to
 death, and [those that are] ready to be slain;
24:12 If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that
 pondereth the heart consider [it]? and he that keepeth thy
 soul, doth [not] he know [it]? and will [not] he render to
 [every] man according to his works?
24:13 My son, eat thou honey, because [it is] good; and the
 honey-comb, [which is] sweet to thy taste:
24:14 So [shall] the knowledge of wisdom [be] to thy soul: when
 thou hast found [it], then there shall be a reward, and thy
 expectation shall not be cut off.
24:15 Lay not wait, O wicked [man], against the dwelling of the
 righteous; destroy not his resting-place:
24:16 For a just [man] falleth seven times, and riseth again:
 but the wicked shall fall into mischief.
24:17 Rejoice not when thy enemy falleth, and let not thy heart
 be glad when he stumbleth:
24:18 Lest the LORD see [it], and it displease him, and he turn
 away his wrath from him.
24:19 Fret not thyself because of evil [men], neither be thou
 envious at the wicked;
24:20 For there shall be no reward to the evil [man]; the candle
 of the wicked shall be extinguished.
24:21 My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: [and] meddle not
 with them that are given to change:
24:22 For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth
 the ruin of them both?
24:23 These [things] also [belong] to the wise. [It is] not good
 to have respect of persons in judgment.
24:24 He that saith to the wicked, Thou [art] righteous; him
 shall the people curse, nations shall abhor him:
24:25 But to them that rebuke [him] shall be delight, and a good
 blessing shall come upon them.
24:26 [Every man] shall kiss [his] lips that giveth a right
 answer.
24:27 Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in
 the field; and afterwards build thy house.
24:28 Be not a witness against thy neighbor without cause; and
 deceive [not] with thy lips.
24:29 Say not, I will do so to him as he hath done to me: I will
 render to the man according to his work.
24:30 I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard
 of the man void of understanding;
24:31 And lo, it was all grown over with thorns, [and] nettles
 had covered the face of it, and its stone wall was broken down.
24:32 Then I saw, [and] considered [it] well: I looked upon
 [it], [and] received instruction.
24:33 [Yet] a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding
 of the hands to sleep:
24:34 So shall thy poverty come [as] one that traveleth; and thy
 want as an armed man.
