Proverbs Chapter 18

, ; -, . 1 He that separateth himself seeketh his own desire, and snarlest against all sound wisdom.
- , : , - . 2 A fool hath no delight in understanding, but only that his heart may lay itself bare.
-, -; - . 3 When the wicked cometh, there cometh also contempt, and with ignominy reproach.
, -; , . 4 The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters; a flowing brook, a fountain of wisdom.
- --- , . 5 It is not good to respect the person of the wicked, so as to turn aside the righteous in judgment.
, ; , . 6 A fool's lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for strokes.
-, -; , . 7 A fool's mouth is his ruin, and his lips are the snare of his soul.
, ; , -. 8 The words of a whisperer are as dainty morsels, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
, -- , . 9 Even one that is slack in his work is brother to him that is a destroyer.
-, ; - . 10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is set up on high.
, ; , . 11 The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as a high wall in his own conceit.
-, -; . 12 Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty, and before honour goeth humility.
, -- -, . 13 He that giveth answer before he heareth, it is folly and confusion unto him.
-, ; , . 14 The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a broken spirit who can bear?
, -; , -. 15 The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.
, ; . 16 A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.
; - (-) , . 17 He that pleadeth his cause first seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him out.
, ; . 18 The lot causeth strife to cease, and parteth asunder the contentious.
-- -; (), . 19 A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city; and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.
-, ; . 20 A man's belly shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; with the increase of his lips shall he be satisfied.
, -; , . 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue; and they that indulge it shall eat the fruit thereof.
, ; , . 22 Whoso findeth a wife findeth a great good, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.
-; , . 23 The poor useth entreaties; but the rich answereth impudently.
, ; , . 24 There are friends that one hath to his own hurt; but there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
