Proverbs 20

1  Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.

2  The fear of a king is as the roaring of a lion: whoso provoketh him to anger sinneth against his own soul.

3  It is an honour for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling.

4  The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.

5  Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it out.

6  Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?

7  The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.

8  A king that sitteth in the throne of judgment scattereth away all evil with his eyes.

9  Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?

10  Divers weights, and divers measures, both of them are alike abomination to the LORD.
