Proverbs 24

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 person.

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

10  If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.
