     1 Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish.

     2 A good man obtaineth favour of the LORD: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn.

     3 A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.

     4 A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.

     5 The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.

     6 The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.

     7 The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.

     8 A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.

     9 He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread.

     10 A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.

     11 He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.

     12 The wicked desireth the net of evil men: but the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit.

     13 The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.

     14 A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompense of a man’s hands shall be rendered unto him.

     15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.(KJV)
