Proverbs 15:28-16:5

A (28) The heart of the righteous studieth to answer:

B (28) but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.

C (29) Yahweh is far from the wicked:
but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.

D (30) The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart:
and a good report maketh the bones fat.

E (31,32) The ear that heareth the reproof of life
abideth among the wise.
He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul:
but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding<03820>.

F(33) The fear of Yahweh is the instruction of wisdom;
and before honour is humility.

E’ (1) The preparations of the heart <03820> in man,
and the answer of the tongue, is from Yahweh.

D’ (2,3) All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes;
but the Yahweh weigheth the spirits.
Commit thy works unto Yahweh,
and thy thoughts shall be established.

C’ (4) Yahweh hath made all things for himself:
yea, even the wicked

B’ (4) for the day of evil.

A’ (5) Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to Yahweh: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
