Selected Proverbs


17:27    A man of knowledge uses words with restraint, and a man of understanding is even tempered.

15:28    The heart of the righteous weighs its answers, but the mouth of the wicked gushes evil.

31:26 She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

13:14 The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, turning a man from the snares of death.


27:17 As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

27:06 The kisses of an enemy may be profuse, but faithful are the wounds of a friend.

27;09 Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one’s friend springs from his earnest counsel.

25:12 Like an earring of gold or an ornament of fine gold is a wise man’s rebuke to a listening ear.


27:07 He who is full loathes honey, but to the hungry even what is bitter tastes sweet.

10:17 He who heeds discipline shows the way to life, but whoever ignores correction leads others astray.

15:10 Stern discipline awaits him who leaves the path, he who hates correction will die.

12:01 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid.

15:32 He who ignores discipline despises himself, but whoever heeds correction gains understanding.

17:10 A rebuke impresses a man of discernment more than a hundred lashes a fool.

15:31 He who listens to a life-giving rebuke will be at home among the wise.
