RF PRO 24:1 The Folly of Envying the Bad.
Feel no envy about wicked men,
Nor wish for yourself to be them,
RF PRO 24:2 When their heart is contriving a fraud,
Or their lips are discussing to cheat.
RF PRO 24:3 By Wisdom a house is built up,
And is founded by means of Good Sense;
RF PRO 24:4 And by knowledge its chambers are filled,
With comforts and all that is nice.
RF PRO 24:5 For the Wise can prevail over Strength;
And the skilled man can conquer the strong.
RF PRO 24:6 For with caution you must make your fight,
And your victory by plenty of thought.
RF PRO 24:7 The Uselessness of Envying Fools.
Wise thoughts are too high for a fool,
Let him open not his mouth in the Court.
RF PRO 24:8 His ideas can but injure himself,
They will call him a bungler of thought.
RF PRO 24:9 The ideas of a fool are no worth,
And a scoffer disgusts human kind.
RF PRO 24:10 On need of Courage in Distress.
If you fail in a time of distress,
By an effort recover your strength.
RF PRO 24:11 Rescue those who are led out to death,
And who go to be slain if you can.
RF PRO 24:12 If you say, "What know we about him?"
Will not the Heart Searcher perceive,
And he know who has guard of your life,
Who returns to a man what he does?
RF PRO 24:13 On Wise Enjoyment.
Eat honey, my son, because sweet,
And nice in the roof of your mouth;
RF PRO 24:14 So is knowledge of Thought to your soul,
For you know that a future exists,
And therefore your hopes will not die.
RF PRO 24:15 Good Will Defeat Evil.
Villain! watch not the home of the good;
Assail not the place of his rest;
RF PRO 24:16 The good falls and will rise seven times,
But the wicked crash down to a smash.
RF PRO 24:17 Against Malicious Joy.
Be not glad when your enemy falls,
Rejoice not your heart at his loss;
RF PRO 24:18 Lest the LORD see, and it grieve His eyes,
And He turn back His anger from him.
RF PRO 24:19 Against Envying the Bad.
Enrage not yourself for the bad,
Do not envy the luck of the vile;
RF PRO 24:20 For there is no future for vice;
The lamp of the wicked goes out.
RF PRO 24:21 Honor God and the King.
My son! fear the LORD, and the King;—
With the changeful associate not.
RF PRO 24:22 For swift will their punishment rise,—
And who knows the injury of both?
RF PRO 24:23 Maxims for the Wise.
To regard station in judgment is wrong.
RF PRO 24:24 Who says to the wrong, "You are right,"
Peoples curse, and the Nations will hate.
RF PRO 24:25 But they will love all who oppose,
And come to present them with thanks,
RF PRO 24:26 And will put a sweet kiss on their lips,
In return for their comforting words.
RF PRO 24:27 On Forethought.
Do the work for yourself in the field,
And after that build up a house.
RF PRO 24:28 Against Slander.
Speak not what is false of your neighbour,
And be not seduced by your lips,
RF PRO 24:29 Say not, "As he did it to me;
I will do to the man what he did."
RF PRO 24:30 The Home of the Sluggard.
I passed by the farm of the sluggard,
By the garden of him without sense,
RF PRO 24:31 And saw thistles were all that it grew.
And nettles had covered its face,
And the wall built to fence it had fallen.
RF PRO 24:32 So I looked and I laid it to heart;
I observed, and a lesson received;
RF PRO 24:33 "A little more sleep, and a little more slumber,
With a little more folding the hands to lie clown;
RF PRO 24:34 "So your poverty comes,—an invader,
And your want like a man with a shield!


AKJV ROM 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
