1 Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish.

1 אֹהֵ֣ב מ֖וּסָר1 אֹ֣הֵֽב דָּ֑עַת וְשֹׂנֵ֖א תֹוכַ֣חַת בָּֽעַר׃

2 A good man obtaineth favour of the LORD: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn.

2 טֹ֗וב יָפִ֣יק רָ֭צֹון מֵיְהוָ֑ה וְאִ֖ישׁ מְזִמֹּ֣ות יַרְשִֽׁיעַ׃

3 A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.

3 לֹא־יִכֹּ֣ון אָדָ֣ם בְּרֶ֑שַׁע וְשֹׁ֥רֶשׁ צַ֝דִּיקִ֗ים בַּל־יִמֹּֽוט׃

4 A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.

4 אֵֽשֶׁת־חַ֭יִל עֲטֶ֣רֶת בַּעְלָ֑הּ וּכְרָקָ֖ב בְּעַצְמֹותָ֣יו מְבִישָֽׁה׃

5 The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.

5 מַחְשְׁבֹ֣ות צַדִּיקִ֣ים מִשְׁפָּ֑ט תַּחְבֻּלֹ֖ות רְשָׁעִ֣ים מִרְמָֽה׃

6 The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.

6 דִּבְרֵ֣י רְשָׁעִ֣ים אֱרָב־דָּ֑ם וּפִ֥י יְ֝שָׁרִ֗ים יַצִּילֵֽם׃

7 The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.

7 הָפֹ֣וךְ רְשָׁעִ֣ים וְאֵינָ֑ם וּבֵ֖ית צַדִּיקִ֣ים יַעֲמֹֽד׃

8 A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.

8 לְֽפִישִ֭־כְלֹו יְהֻלַּל־אִ֑ישׁ וְנַעֲוֵה־לֵ֝֗ב יִהְיֶ֥ה לָבֽוּז׃

9 He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread.

9 טֹ֣וב נִ֭קְלֶה וְעֶ֣בֶד לֹ֑ו מִ֝מְּתַכַּבֵּ֗ד וַחֲסַר־לָֽחֶם׃

10 A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.

10 יֹודֵ֣עַ צַ֭דִּיק נֶ֣פֶשׁ בְּהֶמְתֹּ֑ו וְֽרַחֲמֵ֥י רְ֝שָׁעִ֗ים אַכְזָרִֽי׃

11 He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.

11 עֹבֵ֣ד אַ֭דְמָתֹו יִֽשְׂבַּֽע־לָ֑חֶם וּמְרַדֵּ֖ף רֵיקִ֣ים חֲסַר־לֵֽב׃

12 The wicked desireth the net of evil men: but the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit.

12 חָמַ֣ד רָ֭שָׁע מְצֹ֣וד רָעִ֑ים וְשֹׁ֖רֶשׁ צַדִּיקִ֣ים יִתֵּֽן׃

13 The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.

13 בְּפֶ֣שַׁע פָתַיִם מֹוקֵ֣שׁ רָ֑ע וַיֵּצֵ֖א מִצָּרָ֣ה צַדִּֽיק׃

14 A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompence of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him.

14 מִפְּרִ֣י פִי־אִ֭ישׁ יִשְׂבַּע־טֹ֑וב וּגְמ֥וּל יְדֵי־אָ֝דָ֗ם יָשׁוּב יָשִׁ֥יב לֹֽו׃

15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.

15 דֶּ֣רֶךְ אֱ֭וִיל יָשָׁ֣ר בְּעֵינָ֑יו וְשֹׁמֵ֖עַ לְעֵצָ֣ה חָכָֽם׃

16 A fool's wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covereth shame.

16 אֱוִ֗יל בַּ֭יֹּום יִוָּדַ֣ע כַּעְסֹ֑ו וְכֹסֶ֖ה קָלֹ֣ון עָרֽוּם׃

17 He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit.

17 יָפִ֣יחַ אֱ֭מוּנָה יַגִּ֣יד צֶ֑דֶק וְעֵ֖ד שְׁקָרִ֣ים מִרְמָֽה׃

18 There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.

18 יֵ֣שׁ בֹּ֖וטֶה כְּמַדְקְרֹ֣ות חָ֑רֶב וּלְשֹׁ֖ון חֲכָמִ֣ים מַרְפֵּֽא׃

19 The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.

19 שְֽׂפַת־אֱ֭מֶת תִּכֹּ֣ון לָעַ֑ד וְעַד־אַ֝רְגִּ֗יעָה לְשֹׁ֣ון שָֽׁקֶר׃

20 Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy.

20 מִ֭רְמָה בְּלֶב־חֹ֣רְשֵׁי רָ֑ע וּֽלְיֹעֲצֵ֖י שָׁלֹ֣ום שִׂמְחָֽה׃

21 There shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief.

21 לֹא־יְאֻנֶּ֣ה לַצַּדִּ֣יק כָּל־אָ֑וֶן וּ֝רְשָׁעִ֗ים מָ֣לְאוּ רָֽע׃

22 Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.

22 תֹּועֲבַ֣ת יְ֭הוָה שִׂפְתֵי־שָׁ֑קֶר וְעֹשֵׂ֖י אֱמוּנָ֣ה רְצֹונֹֽו׃

23 A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.

23 אָדָ֣ם עָ֭רוּם כֹּ֣סֶה דָּ֑עַת וְלֵ֥ב כְּ֝סִילִ֗ים יִקְרָ֥א אִוֶּֽלֶת׃

24 The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute.

24 יַד־חָרוּצִ֥ים תִּמְשֹׁ֑ול וּ֝רְמִיָּ֗ה תִּהְיֶ֥ה לָמַֽס׃

25 Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.

25 דְּאָגָ֣ה בְלֶב־אִ֣ישׁ יַשְׁחֶ֑נָּה וְדָבָ֖ר טֹ֣וב יְשַׂמְּחֶֽנָּה׃

26 The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.

26 יָתֵ֣ר מֵרֵעֵ֣הוּ צַדִּ֑יק וְדֶ֖רֶךְ רְשָׁעִ֣ים תַּתְעֵֽם׃

27 The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious.

27 לֹא־יַחֲרֹ֣ךְ רְמִיָּ֣ה צֵידֹ֑ו וְהֹון־אָדָ֖ם יָקָ֣ר חָרֽוּץ׃

28 In the way of righteousness is life: and in the pathway thereof there is no death.

28 בְּאֹֽרַח־צְדָקָ֥ה חַיִּ֑ים וְדֶ֖רֶךְ נְתִיבָ֣ה אַל־מָֽוֶת׃
