| Proverbs 19 - Versions
| Proverbs 19 Text (WEB)
- Better is the poor who walks in his integrity than he who is perverse in his lips and is a fool.
- It isn't good to have zeal without knowledge; nor being hasty with one's feet and missing the way.
- The foolishness of man subverts his way; his heart rages against Yahweh.
- Wealth adds many friends, but the poor is separated from his friend.
- A false witness shall not be unpunished. He who pours out lies shall not go free.
- Many will entreat the favor of a ruler, and everyone is a friend to a man who gives gifts.
- All the relatives of the poor shun him: how much more do his friends avoid him! He pursues them with pleas, but they are gone.
- He who gets wisdom loves his own soul. He who keeps understanding shall find good.
- A false witness shall not be unpunished. He who utters lies shall perish.
- Delicate living is not appropriate for a fool, much less for a servant to have rule over princes.
- The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger. It is his glory to overlook an offense.
- The king's wrath is like the roaring of a lion, but his favor is like dew on the grass.
- A foolish son is the calamity of his father. A wife's quarrels are a continual dripping.
- House and riches are an inheritance from fathers, but a prudent wife is from Yahweh.
- Slothfulness casts into a deep sleep. The idle soul shall suffer hunger.
- He who keeps the commandment keeps his soul, but he who is contemptuous in his ways shall die.
- He who has pity on the poor lends to Yahweh; he will reward him.
- Discipline your son, for there is hope; don't be a willing party to his death.
- A hot-tempered man must pay the penalty, for if you rescue him, you must do it again.
- Listen to counsel and receive instruction, that you may be wise in your latter end.
- There are many plans in a man's heart, but Yahweh's counsel will prevail.
- That which makes a man to be desired is his kindness. A poor man is better than a liar.
- The fear of Yahweh leads to life, then contentment; he rests and will not be touched by trouble.
- The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
- Flog a scoffer, and the simple will learn prudence; rebuke one who has understanding, and he will gain knowledge.
- He who robs his father and drives away his mother, is a son who causes shame and brings reproach.
- If you stop listening to instruction, my son, you will stray from the words of knowledge.
- A corrupt witness mocks justice, and the mouth of the wicked gulps down iniquity.
- Penalties are prepared for scoffers, and beatings for the backs of fools.
| Proverbs 19 Text (Hebrew)
- טוב־רש הולך בתמו מעקש שפתיו והוא כסיל׃
- גם בלא־דעת נפש לא־טוב ואץ ברגלים חוטא׃
- אולת אדם תסלף דרכו ועל־יהוה יזעף לבו׃
- הון יסיף רעים רבים ודל מרעהו יפרד׃
- עד שקרים לא ינקה ויפיח כזבים לא ימלט׃
- רבים יחלו פני־נדיב וכל־הרע לאיש מתן׃
- כל אחי־רש שנאהו אף כי מרעהו רחקו ממנו מרדף אמרים ־המה׃
- קנה־לב אהב נפשו שמר תבונה למצא־טוב׃
- עד שקרים לא ינקה ויפיח כזבים יאבד׃ ף
- לא־נאוה לכסיל תענוג אף כי־לעבד משל בשרים׃
- שכל אדם האריך אפו ותפארתו עבר על־פשע׃
- נהם ככפיר זעף מלך וכטל על־עשב רצונו׃
- הות לאביו בן כסיל ודלף טרד מדיני אשה׃
- בית והון נחלת אבות ומיהוה אשה משכלת׃
- עצלה תפיל תרדמה ונפש רמיה תרעב׃
- שמר מצוה שמר נפשו בוזה דרכיו ׃
- מלוה יהוה חוןן דל וגמלו ישלם־לו׃
- יסר בנך כי־יש תקוה ואל־המיתו אל־תשא נפשך׃
- ־חמה נשא ענש כי אם־תציל ועוד תוסף׃
- שמע עצה וקבל מוסר למען תחכם באחריתך׃
- רבות מחשבות בלב־איש ועצת יהוה היא תקום׃
- תאות אדם חסדו וטוב־רש מאיש כזב׃
- יראת יהוה לחיים ושבע ילין בל־יפקד רע׃
- טמן עצל ידו בצלחת גם־אל־פיהו לא ישיבנה׃
- לץ תכה ופתי יערם והוכיח לנבון יבין דעת׃
- משדד־אב יבריח אם בן מביש ומחפיר׃
- חדל־בני לשמע מוסר לשגות מאמרי־דעת׃
- עד בליעל יליץ משפט ופי רשעים יבלע־און׃
- נכונו ללצים שפטים ומהלמות לגו כסילים׃
| Proverbs 19 Text (Latin)
- Melior est pauper qui ambulat in simplicitate sua quam dives torquens labia sua, et insipiens.
- Ubi non est scientia animæ, non est bonum, et qui festinus est pedibus offendet.
- Stultitia hominis supplantat gressus ejus, et contra Deum fervet animo suo.
- Divitiæ addunt amicos plurimos ; a paupere autem et hi quos habuit separantur.
- Testis falsus non erit impunitus, et qui mendacia loquitur non effugiet.
- Multi colunt personam potentis, et amici sunt dona tribuentis.
- Fratres hominis pauperis oderunt eum ; insuper et amici procul recesserunt ab eo. Qui tantum verba sectatur nihil habebit ;
- qui autem possessor est mentis diligit animam suam, et custos prudentiæ inveniet bona.
- Falsus testis non erit impunitus, et qui loquitur mendacia peribit.
- Non decent stultum deliciæ, nec servum dominari principibus.
- Doctrina viri per patientiam noscitur, et gloria ejus est iniqua prætergredi.
- Sicut fremitus leonis, ita et regis ira, et sicut ros super herbam, ita et hilaritas ejus.
- Dolor patris filius stultus, et tecta jugiter perstillantia litigiosa mulier.
- Domus et divitiæ dantur a parentibus ; a Domino autem proprie uxor prudens.
- Pigredo immittit soporem, et anima dissoluta esuriet.
- Qui custodit mandatum custodit animam suam ; qui autem negligit viam suam mortificabitur.
- Fœneratur Domino qui miseretur pauperis, et vicissitudinem suam reddet ei.
- Erudi filium tuum ; ne desperes : ad interfectionem autem ejus ne ponas animam tuam.
- Qui impatiens est sustinebit damnum, et cum rapuerit, aliud apponet.
- Audi consilium, et suscipe disciplinam, ut sis sapiens in novissimis tuis.
- Multæ cogitationes in corde viri ; voluntas autem Domini permanebit.
- Homo indigens misericors est, et melior est pauper quam vir mendax.
- Timor Domini ad vitam, et in plenitudine commorabitur absque visitatione pessima.
- Abscondit piger manum suam sub ascella, nec ad os suum applicat eam.
- Pestilente flagellato stultus sapientior erit ; si autem corripueris sapientem, intelliget disciplinam.
- Qui affligit patrem, et fugat matrem, ignominiosus est et infelix.
- Non cesses, fili, audire doctrinam, nec ignores sermones scientiæ.
- Testis iniquus deridet judicium, et os impiorum devorat iniquitatem.
- Parata sunt derisoribus judicia, et mallei percutientes stultorum corporibus.
| Proverbs 19 Text (KJV)
- Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
- Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.
- The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the LORD.
- Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.
- A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape.
- Many will intreat the favour of the prince: and every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts.
- 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.
- He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good.
- A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.
- Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.
- The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.
- The king's wrath is as the roaring of a lion; but his favour is as dew upon the grass.
- A foolish son is the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.
- House and riches are the inheritance of fathers and a prudent wife is from the LORD.
- Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.
- He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul; but he that despiseth his ways shall die.
- He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.
- Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying.
- A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou deliver him, yet thou must do it again.
- Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
- There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.
- The desire of a man is his kindness: and a poor man is better than a liar.
- The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.
- A slothful man hideth his hand in his bosom, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
- Smite a scorner, and the simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, and he will understand knowledge.
- He that wasteth his father, and chaseth away his mother, is a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach.
- Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.
- An ungodly witness scorneth judgment: and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity.
- Judgments are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the back of fools.
