Proverbs 17 - Versions
Proverbs 17 Text (WEB)
  1. Better is a dry morsel with quietness, than a house full of feasting with strife.
  2. A servant who deals wisely will rule over a son who causes shame, and shall have a part in the inheritance among the brothers.
  3. The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold, but Yahweh tests the hearts.
  4. An evildoer heeds wicked lips. A liar gives ear to a mischievous tongue.
  5. Whoever mocks the poor reproaches his Maker. He who is glad at calamity shall not be unpunished.
  6. Children's children are the crown of old men; the glory of children are their parents.
  7. Arrogant speech isn't fitting for a fool, much less do lying lips fit a prince.
  8. A bribe is a precious stone in the eyes of him who gives it; wherever he turns, he prospers.
  9. He who covers an offense promotes love; but he who repeats a matter separates best friends.
  10. A rebuke enters deeper into one who has understanding than a hundred lashes into a fool.
  11. An evil man seeks only rebellion; therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.
  12. Let a bear robbed of her cubs meet a man, rather than a fool in his folly.
  13. Whoever rewards evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.
  14. The beginning of strife is like breaching a dam, therefore stop contention before quarreling breaks out.
  15. He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the righteous, both of them alike are an abomination to Yahweh.
  16. Why is there money in the hand of a fool to buy wisdom, since he has no understanding?
  17. A friend loves at all times; and a brother is born for adversity.
  18. A man void of understanding strikes hands, and becomes collateral in the presence of his neighbor.
  19. He who loves disobedience loves strife. One who builds a high gate seeks destruction.
  20. One who has a perverse heart doesn't find prosperity, and one who has a deceitful tongue falls into trouble.
  21. He who becomes the father of a fool grieves. The father of a fool has no joy.
  22. A cheerful heart makes good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
  23. A wicked man receives a bribe in secret, to pervert the ways of justice.
  24. Wisdom is before the face of one who has understanding, but the eyes of a fool wander to the ends of the earth.
  25. A foolish son brings grief to his father, and bitterness to her who bore him.
  26. Also to punish the righteous is not good, nor to flog officials for their integrity.
  27. He who spares his words has knowledge. He who is even tempered is a man of understanding.
  28. Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is counted wise. When he shuts his lips, he is thought to be discerning.

Proverbs 17 Text (Latin)
  1. Melior est buccella sicca cum gaudio, quam domus plena victimis cum jurgio.
  2. Servus sapiens dominabitur filiis stultis, et inter fratres hæreditatem dividet.
  3. Sicut igne probatur argentum et aurum camino, ita corda probat Dominus.
  4. Malus obedit linguæ iniquæ, et fallax obtemperat labiis mendacibus.
  5. Qui despicit pauperem exprobrat factori ejus, et qui ruina lætatur alterius non erit impunitus.
  6. Corona senum filii filiorum, et gloria filiorum patres eorum.
  7. Non decent stultum verba composita, nec principem labium mentiens.
  8. Gemma gratissima exspectatio præstolantis ; quocumque se vertit, prudenter intelligit.
  9. Qui celat delictum quærit amicitias ; qui altero sermone repetit, separat fœderatos.
  10. Plus proficit correptio apud prudentem, quam centum plagæ apud stultum.
  11. Semper jurgia quærit malus ; angelus autem crudelis mittetur contra eum.
  12. Expedit magis ursæ occurrere raptis fœtibus, quam fatuo confidenti in stultitia sua.
  13. Qui reddit mala pro bonis, non recedet malum de domo ejus.
  14. Qui dimittit aquam caput est jurgiorum, et antequam patiatur contumeliam judicium deserit.
  15. Qui justificat impium, et qui condemnat justum, abominabilis est uterque apud Deum.
  16. Quid prodest stulto habere divitias, cum sapientiam emere non possit ? Qui altum facit domum suam quærit ruinam, et qui evitat discere incidet in mala.

  18. Stultus homo plaudet manibus, cum spoponderit pro amico suo.

  21. Natus est stultus in ignominiam suam ; sed nec pater in fatuo lætabitur.
  22. Animus gaudens ætatem floridam facit ; spiritus tristis exsiccat ossa.

Proverbs 17 Text (KJV)
  1. Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife.
  2. A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causeth shame, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren.
  3. The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD trieth the hearts.
  4. A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.
  5. Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.
  6. Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.
  7. Excellent speech becometh not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince.
  8. A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth.
  9. He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.
  10. A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.
  11. An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.
  12. Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man, rather than a fool in his folly.
  13. Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.
  14. The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water: therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.
  15. He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.
  16. Wherefore is there a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing he hath no heart to it?
  17. A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
  18. A man void of understanding striketh hands, and becometh surety in the presence of his friend.
  19. He loveth transgression that loveth strife: and he that exalteth his gate seeketh destruction.
  20. He that hath a froward heart findeth no good: and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief.
  21. He that begetteth a fool doeth it to his sorrow: and the father of a fool hath no joy.
  22. A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
  23. A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.
  24. Wisdom is before him that hath understanding; but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.
  25. A foolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to her that bare him.
  26. Also to punish the just is not good, nor to strike princes for equity.
  27. He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.
  28. Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.
