Proverbs 19 [5.] A false witness shall not be unpunished.
He who pours out lies shall not go free.
Many will entreat the favor of a ruler,
and everyone is a friend to a man who gives gifts.
All the relatives of the poor shun him:
how much more do his friends avoid him!
He pursues them with pleas, but they are gone.
He who gets wisdom loves his own soul.
He who keeps understanding shall find good.
A false witness shall not be unpunished.
He who utters lies shall perish.
Proverbs 19 [10.] Delicate living is not appropriate for a fool,
much less for a servant to have rule over princes.
The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger.
It is his glory to overlook an offense.
The king’s wrath is like the roaring of a lion,
but his favor is like dew on the grass.
A foolish son is the calamity of his father.
A wife’s quarrels are a continual dripping.
House and riches are an inheritance from fathers,
but a prudent wife is from Yahweh.
Proverbs 19 [15.] Slothfulness casts into a deep sleep.
The idle soul shall suffer hunger.
He who keeps the commandment keeps his soul,
but he who is contemptuous in his ways shall die.
He who has pity on the poor lends to Yahweh;
he will reward him.
Discipline your son, for there is hope;
don’t be a willing party to his death.
A hot-tempered man must pay the penalty,
for if you rescue him, you must do it again.
