The Proverbs - Chapter 24
The Proverbs Chapters
3 By wisdom a house is built, by understanding it is made strong;
4 by knowledge its storerooms are filled with riches of every kind, rare and desirable.
5 The wise is mighty in power, strength is reinforced by science;
7 For a fool wisdom is an inaccessible fortress: at the city gate he does not open his mouth.
10 If you lose heart when things go wrong, your strength is not worth much.
20 for there is no future for the evil, the lamp of the wicked will go out.
25 but those who correct him, come out of it well, on them will come a happy blessing.
26 Whoever returns an honest answer, plants a kiss on the lips.
28 Do not bear witness lightly against your neighbour, nor deceive with your lips.
30 By the idler's field I was passing, by the vineyard of a man who had no sense,
34 and poverty comes like a vagrant, and, like a beggar, dearth.'

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
