Proverbs 1:8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: prov 1:8
3 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:
2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.
3 25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.
26 For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.
27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.
28 Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.
29 Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.
5 Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Prov 4;5
Prov 1027 The fear of the Lord prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened.
Prov 1113 A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
4 A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones. Prov 12:4
13 The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.Prov 12:13
23 A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness. Prov 12:23
25 Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.
26 The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.
27 The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious.
13 A wise son heareth his father’s instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke.
2 A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.
3 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.
4 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
18 Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.
14 Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.
3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.
7 Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.
17 He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly: and a man of wicked devices is hated.
20 The poor is hated even of his own neighbour: but the rich hath many friends.
21 He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth: but he that hath mercy on the poor, happy is he.
29 He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.
31 He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.
15 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.
3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.
4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.
5 A fool despiseth his father’s instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.
10 Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die.
14 The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.
29 The Lord is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
32 He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.
33 The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.
163 Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.
7 When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
20 He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.
23 The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.
24 Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
28 A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends.
32 He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.
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.
13 Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.
20 He that hath a froward heart findeth no good: and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief.
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.
186 A fool’s lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for strokes.
7 A fool’s mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.
8 The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
9 He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
