Proverbs 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.
