BRAGADAYJAH 1587 Proverbs: 14: Verses 25 35 Righteousness and WickednessContrasted. A true witness delivereth souls; but a deceitful witness speaketh lies. In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence; and His children shall have a place of refuge. The fear of the Lord is fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. In the multitude of people is the king’s honour; but in the wont of people is the destruction of the prince. He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding; but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly. A sound heart is the life of the flesh; but envy the rottenness of the bones. He that oppresseth the poor, reproacheth his maker; but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor. The wicked is driven away in his wickedness; but the righteous hath hope in his death. Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding; but that which is in the midst of fools is made known. Righteousness exalteth a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people. The king’s favour is toward a wise servant; but his wrath is against him that causeth shame.
