The Proverbs Chapters
4 In autumn the idler does not plough, at harvest time he looks -- nothing there!
5 The resources of the human heart are like deep waters: an understanding person has only to draw on them.
7 The upright whose ways are blameless -- blessed the children who come after!
11 A young man's character appears in what he does, if his behaviour is pure and straight.
12 Ear that hears, eye that sees, Yahweh has made both of these.
13 Do not love sleep or you will know poverty; keep your eyes open and have your fill of food.
20 Whoever curses father or mother will have his lamp put out in the deepest darkness.
21 Property quickly come by at first will not be blessed in the end.
28 Faithful love and loyalty mount guard over the king, his throne is founded on saving justice.
29 The pride of the young is their strength, the ornament of the old, grey hairs.
30 Wounding strokes are good medicine for evil, blows have an effect on the inmost self.
