BRAGADAYJAH 1585 Proverbs 14 Verses 1-12 Righteousness and Wickedness Contrasted Every wise woman buildeth her house; but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands. He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the Lord; but he that is perverse in his ways desirseth Him. In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride; but the lips of the wise shall preserve them. Where no oxen are, the crib is clean; but much increase is by the strength of the ox. A faithful witness will not lie; but a false witness will utter lies. A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not; but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth. Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge. The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way; but the folly of fools is deceit. Fools make a mock at sin; but among the righteous there is favour. The heart knoweth its own bitterness; and the stranger doth not inter-meddle with his joy. The house of the wicked shall be overthrown; but th tabernacle of the upright shall flourish. There is a way which seemeth right unto a man; but the end thereof are the ways of death.
