Ps 37:1  Prov 3:31  Prov 23:17  Gal 5:19-21  Ps 37:7  Ps 73:3  Prov 24:19 

2 for their hearts are scheming violence, their lips talking mischief.

3 By wisdom a house is built, by understanding it is made strong;
Prov 14:1  Jer 10:12  Prov 9:1  1Cor 3:9  Col 2:7  2Sam 7:26 

4 by knowledge its storerooms are filled with riches of every kind, rare and desirable.
Prov 15:6  Prov 21:20  1Chr 27:25-31  1Chr 29:2-9  1Kgs 4:22-28  2Chr 4:18-22  2Chr 26:4-11 

5 The wise is mighty in power, strength is reinforced by science;
Eccl 7:19  Prov 21:22  Col 1:11  Prov 10:29  Eccl 9:14-18  Isa 40:31  Ps 84:7 

6 for it is by strategy that you wage war, and victory depends on having many counsellors.
Prov 11:14  Prov 20:18  1Cor 9:25-27  2Tim 4:7  Eph 6:10-20  Luke 14:31  Prov 15:22 

7 For a fool wisdom is an inaccessible fortress: at the city gate he does not open his mouth.
Prov 14:6  Ps 10:5  1Cor 2:14  Amos 5:10  Amos 5:12  Amos 5:15  Isa 29:21 

8 Anyone intent on evil-doing is known as a master in cunning.
Ps 21:11  Rom 1:30  Prov 6:14  Isa 32:7  Prov 14:22  1Kgs 2:44  Ezek 38:10-11 

9 Folly dreams of nothing but sin, the mocker is abhorrent.
Matt 15:19  Acts 8:22  Prov 29:8  2Cor 10:5  Gen 6:5  Gen 8:21  Isa 55:7 

10 If you lose heart when things go wrong, your strength is not worth much.
Isa 40:28-31  Eph 3:13  Jer 51:46  Job 4:5  1Sam 27:1  2Cor 4:1  Heb 12:3-5 

11 Save those being dragged towards death, but can you rescue those on their way to execution?
Isa 58:6-7  Ps 82:4  1John 3:16-17  Luke 23:23-25  1Sam 26:8-9  Acts 18:17  Acts 21:31-32 

12 If you say, 'But look, we did not know,' will the Weigher of the heart pay no attention? Will not the Guardian of your soul be aware and repay you as your deeds deserve?
Job 34:11  1Sam 16:7  Eccl 5:8  Ps 121:8  Rev 2:23  Prov 21:2  Ps 62:12 

13 Eat honey, my child, since it is good; honey that drips from the comb is sweet to the taste:
Isa 7:15  Song 5:1  Prov 25:16  Matt 3:4  Ps 19:10  Ps 119:103  Prov 25:27 

14 and so, for sure, will wisdom be to your soul: find it and you will have a future and your hope will not be cut short.
Prov 23:18  Prov 2:10  Jas 1:25  Jer 15:16  Ps 119:103  Prov 3:13-18  Prov 22:18 

15 Do not lurk, wicked man, round the upright man's dwelling, do not despoil his house.
1Sam 9:11  1Sam 22:18-19  1Sam 23:20-23  Acts 9:24  Acts 23:16  Acts 25:3  Isa 32:18 

16 For though the upright falls seven times, he gets up again; the wicked are the ones who stumble in adversity.
Mic 7:8-10  Ps 37:24  Ps 34:19  Job 5:19  2Cor 4:8-12  1Thess 5:3  Rev 18:20-21 

17 Should your enemy fall, do not rejoice, when he stumbles do not let your heart exult:
Obad 1:12  Job 31:29  1Cor 13:6-7  2Sam 16:5-14  Ps 35:15  Ps 35:19  Prov 17:5 

18 for fear that Yahweh will be displeased at the sight and turn his anger away from him.
Lam 4:21-22  Zech 1:15-16 

19 Do not be indignant about the wicked, do not be envious of the evil,
Ps 37:1  Prov 24:1  Num 16:26  Ps 1:1  Ps 26:4-5  Ps 73:3  Ps 119:115 

20 for there is no future for the evil, the lamp of the wicked will go out.
Prov 13:9  Job 18:5-6  Job 21:17  Prov 20:20  Isa 3:11  Jude 1:13  Matt 8:12 

21 Fear Yahweh, my child, and fear the king; do not ally yourself with innovators;
Rom 13:1-7  1Pet 2:13-17  Titus 3:1  1Kgs 12:16  1Sam 8:5-7  1Sam 12:12-19  1Sam 24:6 

22 for suddenly disaster will loom for them, and who knows what ruin will seize them and their friends?
1Sam 31:1-7  2Chr 13:16-17  2Sam 18:7-8  Hos 5:11  Hos 13:10-11  Num 16:31-35  Ps 90:11 

23 The following are also taken from the sages: To show partiality in judgement is not good.
Ps 107:43  Prov 18:5  Prov 28:21  Hos 14:9  Lev 19:15  Prov 1:6  1Pet 1:17 

24 Whoever tells the wicked, 'You are upright,' peoples curse him, nations revile him;
Prov 17:15  Prov 11:26  Isa 5:23  Exod 23:6-7  Ezek 13:22  Isa 5:20  Isa 66:24 

25 but those who correct him, come out of it well, on them will come a happy blessing.
Prov 28:23  1Kgs 21:19-20  1Sam 3:13  1Tim 5:20  2Tim 4:2  Job 29:16-18  Lev 19:17 

26 Whoever returns an honest answer, plants a kiss on the lips.
Prov 25:11-12  Dan 2:46-48  Gen 41:38-57  Job 6:25  Mark 12:17-18  Mark 12:32-34  Prov 15:23 

27 Plan what you want on the open ground, make your preparation in the field; then go and build your house.
Luke 14:28-30  1Kgs 5:17-18  1Kgs 6:7 

28 Do not bear witness lightly against your neighbour, nor deceive with your lips.
Eph 4:25  Prov 25:18  1Kgs 21:9-13  1Sam 22:9-10  Col 3:9  Exod 20:16  Exod 23:1 

29 Do not say, 'I will treat my neighbour as my neighbour treated me; I will repay everyone what each has earned.'
Prov 20:22  1Thess 5:15  Rom 12:17-21  2Sam 13:22-28  Prov 25:21-22  Judg 15:11  Matt 5:39-44 

30 By the idler's field I was passing, by the vineyard of a man who had no sense,
Eccl 8:9-11  Job 4:8  Job 5:27  Job 15:17  Eccl 4:1-8  Eccl 7:15  Ps 37:25 

31 there it all lay, deep in thorns, entirely overgrown with weeds, and its stone wall broken down.
Eccl 10:18  Gen 3:17-19  Heb 6:8  Isa 5:5  Jer 4:3  Job 31:40  Matt 13:7 

32 And as I gazed I pondered, I drew this lesson from the sight,
1Cor 10:6  1Cor 10:11  Deut 13:11  Deut 21:21  Deut 32:29  Job 7:17  Jude 1:5-7 

33 'A little sleep, a little drowsiness, a little folding of the arms to lie back
1Thess 5:6-8  Eph 5:14  Rom 13:11  Prov 6:4-11 

34 and poverty comes like a vagrant, and, like a beggar, dearth.'
Prov 10:4  Prov 13:4
