 wicked devices he will condemn.
12:3 A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root
 of the righteous shall not be moved.
12:4 A virtuous woman [is] a crown to her husband: but she that
 maketh ashamed [is] as rottenness in his bones.
12:5 The thoughts of the righteous [are] right: [but] the
 counsels of the wicked [are] deceit.
12:6 The words of the wicked [are] to lie in wait for blood: but
 the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.
12:7 The wicked are overthrown, and [are] not: but the house of
 the righteous shall stand.
12:8 A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he
 that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.
12:9 [He that is] despised, and hath a servant, [is] better than
 he that honoreth himself, and is destitute of bread.
12:10 A righteous [man] regardeth the life of his beast: but the

12:11 He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread:

 the righteous yieldeth [fruit].
12:13 The wicked is snared by the transgression of [his] lips:
 but the just shall come out of trouble.
12:14 A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of [his]
 mouth: and the recompense of a man's hands shall be rendered to
12:15 The way of a fool [is] right in his own eyes: but he that
 hearkeneth to counsel [is] wise.
12:16 A fool's wrath is presently known: but a prudent [man]
 covereth shame.
12:17 [He that] speaketh truth showeth forth righteousness: but
 a false witness, deceit.
12:18 There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but
 the tongue of the wise [is] health.
12:19 The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a
 lying tongue [is] but for a moment.

 the counselors of peace [is] joy.

 shall be filled with mischief.

 deal truly [are] his delight.

 proclaimeth foolishness.

 shall be under tribute.

 word maketh it glad.
12:26 The righteous [is] more excellent than his neighbor: but
 the way of the wicked seduceth them.

 hunting: but the substance of a diligent man [is] precious.
12:28 In the way of righteousness [is] life; and [in] the path
 [of it there is] no death.
