Proverbs 19

19:1 Better [is] the poor that walketh in his integrity, than
 [he that is] perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
19:2 Also, [that] the soul [be] without knowledge, [it is] not
 good; and he that hasteth with [his] feet sinneth.
19:3 The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart
 fretteth against the LORD.
19:4 Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from
 his neighbor.
19:5 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and [he that]
 speaketh lies shall not escape.
19:6 Many will entreat the favor of the prince: and every man
 [is] a friend to him that giveth gifts.
19:7 All the brethren of the poor do hate him: how much more do
 his friends go far from him? he pursueth [them with] words,
 [yet] they [are] wanting [to him].
19:8 He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth
 understanding shall find good.
19:9 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and [he that]
 speaketh lies shall perish.
19:10 Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant
 to have rule over princes.
19:11 The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and [it is]
 his glory to pass over a transgression.
19:12 The king's wrath [is] as the roaring of a lion; but his
 favor [is] as dew upon the grass.
19:13 A foolish son [is] the calamity of his father: and the
 contentions of a wife [are] a continual dropping.
19:14 House and riches [are] the inheritance of fathers: and a
 prudent wife [is] from the LORD.
19:15 Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul
 shall suffer hunger.
19:16 He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul;
 [but] he that despiseth his ways shall die.
19:17 He that hath pity upon the poor, lendeth to the LORD; and
 that which he hath given will he pay him again.
19:18 Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul
 spare for his crying.
19:19 A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou
 deliver [him], yet thou must do it again.
19:20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be
 wise in thy latter end.
19:21 [There are] many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless
 the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.
19:22 The desire of a man [is] his kindness: and a poor man [is]
 better than a liar.
19:23 The fear of the LORD [tendeth] to life: and [he that hath
 it] shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.
19:24 A slothful [man] hideth his hand in [his] bosom, and will
 not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
19:25 Smite a scorner and the simple will beware: and reprove
 one that hath understanding, [and] he will understand
19:26 He that wasteth [his] father, [and] chaseth away [his]
 mother, [is] a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach.
19:27 Cease, my son, to hear the instruction [that causeth] to
 err from the words of knowledge.
19:28 An ungodly witness scorneth judgment: and the mouth of the
 wicked devoureth iniquity.
