Proverbs 19

1  Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.

2  Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.

3  The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the LORD.

4  Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.

5  A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape.

6  Many will entreat the favour of the prince: and every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts.

7  All the brethren of the poor do hate him: how much more do his friends go far from him? he pursueth them with words, yet they are wanting to him.

8  He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good.

9  A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.

10  Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.
