Proverbs 14:1-35


Chapter 14

1 Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.
2 He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the LORD: but [he that is] perverse in his ways despiseth him.
3 In the mouth of the foolish [is] a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.
4 Where no oxen [are], the crib [is] clean: but much increase [is] by the strength of the ox.
5 A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.
6 A scorner seeketh wisdom, and [findeth it] not: but knowledge [is] easy unto him that understandeth.
7 Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not [in him] the lips of knowledge.
8 The wisdom of the prudent [is] to understand his way: but the folly of fools [is] deceit.
9 Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous [there is] favour.
10 The heart knoweth his own bitterness; and a stranger doth not intermeddle with his joy.
11 The house of the wicked shall be overthrown: but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish.
12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof [are] the ways of death.
13 Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; and the end of that mirth [is] heaviness.
14 The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man [shall be satisfied] from himself.
15 The simple believeth every word: but the prudent [man] looketh well to his going.
16 A wise [man] feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident.
17 [He that is] soon angry dealeth foolishly: and a man of wicked devices is hated.
18 The simple inherit folly: but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.
19 The evil bow before the good; and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.
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.
22 Do they not err that devise evil? but mercy and truth [shall be] to them that devise good.
23 In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips [tendeth] only to penury.
24 The crown of the wise [is] their riches: [but] the foolishness of fools [is] folly.
25 A true witness delivereth souls: but a deceitful [witness] speaketh lies.
26 In the fear of the LORD [is] strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge.
27 The fear of the LORD [is] a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
28 In the multitude of people [is] the king's honour: but in the want of people [is] the destruction of the prince.
29 [He that is] slow to wrath [is] of great understanding: but [he that is] hasty of spirit exalteth folly.
30 A sound heart [is] the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.
31 He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.
32 The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: but the righteous hath hope in his death.
33 Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding: but [that which is] in the midst of fools is made known.
34 Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin [is] a reproach to any people.
35 The king's favour [is] toward a wise servant: but his wrath is [against] him that causeth shame.

Psalms 68:1-35


Psalm 68

To the chief Musician, A Psalm [or] Song of David.
1 Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.
2 As smoke is driven away, [so] drive [them] away: as wax melteth before the fire, [so] let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
3 But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.
4 Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.
5 A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, [is] God in his holy habitation.
6 God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry [land].
7 O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou didst march through the wilderness; Selah:
8 The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: [even] Sinai itself [was moved] at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
9 Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, whereby thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary.
10 Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor.
11 The Lord gave the word: great [was] the company of those that published [it].
12 Kings of armies did flee apace: and she that tarried at home divided the spoil.
13 Though ye have lien among the pots, [yet shall ye be as] the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.
14 When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was [white] as snow in Salmon.
15 The hill of God [is as] the hill of Bashan; an high hill [as] the hill of Bashan.
16 Why leap ye, ye high hills? [this is] the hill [which] God desireth to dwell in; yea, the LORD will dwell [in it] for ever.
17 The chariots of God [are] twenty thousand, [even] thousands of angels: the Lord [is] among them, [as in] Sinai, in the holy [place].
18 Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, [for] the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell [among them].
19 Blessed [be] the Lord, [who] daily loadeth us [with benefits, even] the God of our salvation. Selah.
20 [He that is] our God [is] the God of salvation; and unto GOD the Lord [belong] the issues from death.
21 But God shall wound the head of his enemies, [and] the hairy scalp of such an one as goeth on still in his trespasses.
22 The Lord said, I will bring again from Bashan, I will bring [my people] again from the depths of the sea:
23 That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of [thine] enemies, [and] the tongue of thy dogs in the same.
24 They have seen thy goings, O God; [even] the goings of my God, my King, in the sanctuary.
25 The singers went before, the players on instruments [followed] after; among [them were] the damsels playing with timbrels.
26 Bless ye God in the congregations, [even] the Lord, from the fountain of Israel.
27 There [is] little Benjamin [with] their ruler, the princes of Judah [and] their council, the princes of Zebulun, [and] the princes of Naphtali.
28 Thy God hath commanded thy strength: strengthen, O God, that which thou hast wrought for us.
29 Because of thy temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents unto thee.
30 Rebuke the company of spearmen, the multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the people, [till every one] submit himself with pieces of silver: scatter thou the people [that] delight in war.
31 Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.
32 Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah:
33 To him that rideth upon the heavens of heavens, [which were] of old; lo, he doth send out his voice, [and that] a mighty voice.
34 Ascribe ye strength unto God: his excellency [is] over Israel, and his strength [is] in the clouds.
35 O God, [thou art] terrible out of thy holy places: the God of Israel [is] he that giveth strength and power unto [his] people. Blessed [be] God.
