Proverbs chapter 14

A wise woman upholdeth her house, but a foolish wife plucketh it down.
Who so feareth the LORD, walketh in the right path: and regardeth not him that abhorreth the ways of the LORD.
In the mouth of the foolish is the boasting of lordship, but the lips of the wise will be ware of such.
Where no oxen are, there the crib is empty: but where the oxen labour there is much fruit.
A faithful witness will not dissemble, but a false record will make a lie.
A scornful body seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy to come by, unto him that will understand.
See that thou meddle not with a fool, and do as though thou hadst no knowledge.
The wisdom of him that hath understanding is, to take heed unto his way, but the foolishness of the unwise deceiveth.
Fools make but a sport of sin, but there is favourable love among the righteous.
The heart of him that hath understanding will neither despair for any sorrow, nor be too presumptuous for any sudden joy.
The houses of the ungodly shall be overthrown, but the tabernacles of the righteous shall flourish.
There is a way which some men think to be right, but the end thereof leadeth unto death.
The heart is sorrowful even in laughter, and the end of mirth is heaviness.
An unfaithful person shall be filled with his own ways, but a good man will beware of such.
An ignorant body believeth all things, but who so hath understanding, looketh well to his goings.
A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil, but a fool goeth on presumptuously.
An unpatient man handleth foolishly, but he that is well advised, doth other ways.
The ignorant have foolishness in possession, but the wise are crowned with knowledge.
The evil shall bow themselves before the good, and the ungodly shall wait at the doors of the righteous.
The poor is hated even of his own neighbours, but the rich hath many friends.
Who so despiseth his neighbour, doth amiss: but blessed is he that hath pity of the poor.
They that imagine wickedness, shall be disappointed: but they that muse upon good things, unto such shall happen mercy and faithfulness.
Diligent labour bringeth riches, but where many vain words are, truly there is scarceness.
Riches are an ornament unto the wise, but the ignorance of fools is very foolishness.
A faithful witness delivereth souls, but a liar deceiveth them.
The fear of the LORD is a stronghold, for unto his he will be a sure defense. The fear of the LORD is a well of life, to avoid the snares of death.
The increase and prosperity of the commons is the king's honour, but the decay of the people is the confusion of the prince.
Patience is a token of wisdom, but wrath and hasty displeasure is a token of foolishness.
A merry heart is the life of the body, but rancor consumeth away the bones.
He that doth a poor man wrong, blasphemeth his maker: but who so hath pity of the poor, doth honour unto God.
The ungodly is afraid of every peril, but the righteous hath a good hope even in death.
Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding, and he will teach them that are unlearned.
Righteousness setteth up the people, but wickedness bringeth folk to destruction.
A discreet servant is a pleasure unto the king, but one that is not honest provoketh him unto wrath.
