Proverbs 24 (KJV)


1 Be not thou envious against evil men, neither desire to be with them.
2 For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.




3 Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:
4 And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.




5 A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.




6 For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellors there is safety.






7 Wisdom is too high for a fool: he openeth not his mouth in the gate.




8 He that deviseth to do evil shall be called a mischievous (disobedient) person.



9 The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner (hypocrite) is an abomination (curse) to men.




13 My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste:
14 So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.




17 Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth:
18 Lest the Lord see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him.




19 Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious at the wicked:
20 For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out.




21 My son, fear thou the Lord and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change:
22 For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both?
23 These things also belong to the wise. It is not good to have respect (worship) of persons in judgment.




24 He that saith unto the wicked, Thou are righteous; him shall the people curse, nations shall abhor (regard with disgust and hatred.) him:
25 But to them that rebuke (correct strongly) him shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come upon them.




28 Be not a witness against thy neighbour without cause; and deceive not with thy lips.



29 Say not, I will do so to him as he hath done to me: I will render to the man according to his work.





33 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:
34 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man.
