PROVERBS 23:31-33

A (31) Look<07200> not thou upon the wine when it is red,

B (31) when it giveth his colour <05869> in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.

C (32) At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.

B1 (33) Thine eyes <05869>

A1 (33) shall behold <07200> strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.

Proverbs 24:13-22

PROVERBS 24:13-22

A (13,14) My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste: So shall the knowledge <03045> of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.

B (15,16) Lay not wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous; spoil not his resting place: For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.

C (17,18) Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth: Lest Yahweh see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him.

D (19) Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious at the wicked;

E (20) For there shall be no reward to the evil man;

D1 (20) the candle of the wicked shall be put out.

B1 (22) For their calamity shall rise suddenly;

A1 (22,23) and who knoweth <03045> the ruin of them both?

Proverbs 25:14-23

PROVERBS 25:14-23

B (16) Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it.

C (17) Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour’s house; lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee.

D (18) A man that beareth false witness against his neighbour is a maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow.

C1 (19) Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.

B1 (20-22) As he that taketh away a garment in cold weather, and as vinegar upon nitre, so is he that singeth songs to an heavy heart. If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink: For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee.

A1 (23) The north wind driveth away rain: so doth an angry countenance a backbiting tongue.

but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

C1 (14) Happy is the man <0120> that feareth alway: but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief.

B1 (15,16) As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people. The prince that wanteth understanding is also a great oppressor: but he that hateth covetousness shall prolong his days.

A1 (17,18) A man that doeth violence to the blood of any person shall flee to the pit; let no man stay him. Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved: but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.

E (7) The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it.

C (24) A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

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.

abideth among the wise.
He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul:
but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding<03820>.

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

A1 (12) but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.
