Proverbs Chapter 22
22:1 A GOOD name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving
favour rather than silver and gold.
22:2 The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all.
22:3 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the
simple pass on, and are punished.
22:4 By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and
22:5 Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep
his soul shall be far from them.
22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he
will not depart from it.
22:7 The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the
22:8 He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of his anger
22:9 He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his
bread to the poor.
22:10 Cast out the scorner, and contention shall go out; yea, strife and
reproach shall cease.
22:11 He that loveth pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the
king shall be his friend.
22:12 The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge, and he overthroweth the
words of the transgressor.
22:13 The slothful man saith, There is a lion without, I shall be slain
in the streets.
22:14 The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of
the LORD shall fall therein.
22:15 Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of
correction shall drive it far from him.
22:16 He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that
giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.
22:17 Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply
thine heart unto my knowledge.
22:18 For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee; they
shall withal be fitted in thy lips.
22:19 That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to thee this
day, even to thee.
22:20 Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and
22:21 That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth;
that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto
22:22 Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the
afflicted in the gate:
22:23 For the LORD will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those
that spoiled them.
22:24 Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou
shalt not go:
22:25 Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.
22:26 Be not thou one of them that strike hands, or of them that are
sureties for debts.
22:27 If thou hast nothing to pay, why should he take away thy bed from
22:28 Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.
22:29 Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before
kings; he shall not stand before mean men.
