waters and the wellspring of wisdom is like a flowing brook 18:05 It is not good to accept the person of the wicked if it is to overthrow the righteous in judgement 18:06 A fool's lips enter into destruction and his lips are the snare of his soul 18:07 A fool's mouth is his destruction and his lips are a snare to his soul 18:08 The words of a talebearer are like wounds and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly 18:09 He that is slothful in his work is also brother to one who is a great waster 18:10 The name of THAT I AM is a strong tower the righteous runs into it and is safe 18:11 The rich man's wealth is his strong city and like a high wall in his own conceit 18:12 Before destruction the heart of man is haughty and before honor is humility 18:13 He that answers a matter before he hears it it is folly and shame unto him 18:14 The spirit of man will sustain his infirmity yet who can bear a wounded spirit? 18:15 The heart of the prudent gets knowledge and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge 18:16 A man's gift makes room for him and brings him before great men 18:17 He that is first in his own cause seems just yet his neighbor comes and searches him 18:18 The lot causes contentions to cease and decides between strong contenders 18:19 A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city and their contentions are like the bars of a castle 18:20 A man's belly will be satisfied with the product of his mouth and with the increase of his lips he will be satisfied 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue and they that love it will eat its product 18:22 Whoso finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains the favor of THAT I AM 18:23 The poor use entreaties yet the rich answer roughly 18:24 A man that has friends must show himself friendly and there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother 19:01 Better is the poor that walks in his integrity than he that is perverse in his lips and is a fool 19:02 That the soul be without knowledge is not good and he that hastens with his feet is a sinner 19:03 The foolishness of man perverts his way and his heart frets against THAT I AM 19:04 Wealth makes many friends yet the poor is separated from his neighbor 19:05 A false witness will not be unpunished and he that speaks lies will not escape 19:06 Many will intreat the favor of the prince and every man is a friend to him that gives gifts 19:07 All the brethren of the poor do hate him how much more do his friends go far from him? he pursues them with words yet words are wanting to him 19:08 He that gets wisdom loves his own soul he that keeps understanding will find good 19:09 A false witness will not be unpunished and he that speaks lies will not escape 19:10 Delight is not seemly for a fool much less for a servant to rule over princes 19:11 The discretion of a man defers his anger and it is his glory to look over a transgression 19:12 The king's wrath is like the roaring of a lion yet his favor is like dew upon a lawn 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 THAT I AM 19:15

lends to THAT I AM and IT will pay him again what he has given 19:18 Chasten your son while there is hope and let not your soul spare for his crying 19:19 A man of great wrath will suffer punishment for if you deliver him you must do it again 19:20 Hear counsel and receive instruction that you may be wise in your latter end 19:21 There are many devices in a man's heart nevertheless the counsel pf

visited by evil 19:24 A slothful man hides his hand in his bosom and will not even bring it to his mouth again 19:25 Smite a scorner and the simple will beware and reprove one that has understanding so he will understand knowledge 19:26 He that wastes his father and chases away his mother is a son that causes shame and brings reproach 19:27 Cease to hear the instruction that causes to err from the words of knowledge 19:28 An unprincipled witness scorns judgement and the mouth of the wicked devours iniquity 19:29 Judgements are prepared for scorners and stripes for the backs of fools 20:01

20:03 It is an honor for a man to cease from strife yet every fool will be meddling 20:04 The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold in harvest time therefore he will have nothing and must beg 20:05 Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water yet a man of understanding will draw it out 20:06 Most men will proclaim his own goodness yet a faithful man who can find? 20:07 The just man walks in his integrity his children are blesses after him 20:08 A king that sits in the thrown of judgement scatters away all evil with his eyes 20:09 Who can say "I have made my heart clean I am pure of my
