Proverbs chapter 17

1
Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife.
2
A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causeth shame, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren.
3
The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD trieth the hearts.
4
A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.
5
Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.
6
Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.
7
Excellent speech becometh not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince.
8
A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth.
9
He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.
10
A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.
11
An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.
12
Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man, rather than a fool in his folly.
13
Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.
14
The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water: therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.
15
He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.
16
Wherefore is there a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing he hath no heart to it?
17
A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
18
A man void of understanding striketh hands, and becometh surety in the presence of his friend.
19
He loveth transgression that loveth strife: and he that exalteth his gate seeketh destruction.
20
He that hath a froward heart findeth no good: and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief.
21
He that begetteth a fool doeth it to his sorrow: and the father of a fool hath no joy.
22
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
23
A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.
24
Wisdom is before him that hath understanding; but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.
25
A foolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to her that bare him.
26
Also to punish the just is not good, nor to strike princes for equity.
27
He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.
28
Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.

Proverbs chapter 18

1
Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.
2
A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.
3
When the wicked cometh, then cometh also contempt, and with ignominy reproach.
4
The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.
5
It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow 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 destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.
8
The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
9
He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.
10
The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
11
The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit.
12
Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.
13
He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.
14
The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded 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 is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.
18
The lot causeth contentions to cease, and parteth between the mighty.
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 satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.
21
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
22
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.
23
The poor useth intreaties; but the rich answereth roughly.
24
A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

Proverbs chapter 19

1
Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
2
Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.
3
The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the LORD.
4
Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.
5
A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape.
6
Many will intreat the favour of the prince: and every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts.
7
All the brethren of the poor do hate him: how much more do his friends go far from him? he pursueth them with words, yet they are wanting to him.
8
He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good.
9
A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.
10
Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.
11
The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.
12
The king's wrath is as the roaring of a lion; but his favour is as dew upon the grass.
13
A foolish son is the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.
14
House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD.
15
Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.
16
He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul; but he that despiseth his ways shall die.
17
He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.
18
Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying.
19
A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou deliver him, yet thou must do it again.
20
Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
21
There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.
22
The desire of a man is his kindness: and a poor man is better than a liar.
23
The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.
24
A slothful man hideth his hand in his bosom, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
25
Smite a scorner, and the simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, and he will understand knowledge.
26
He that wasteth his father, and chaseth away his mother, is a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach.
27
Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.
28
An ungodly witness scorneth judgment: and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity.
29
Judgments are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the back of fools.

John chapter 7

1
After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.
2
Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.
3
His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.
4
For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.
5
For neither did his brethren believe in him.
6
Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.
7
The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.
8
Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come.
9
When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.
10
But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.
11
Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?
12
And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he deceiveth the people.
13
Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.
14
Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.
15
And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?
16
Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
17
If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
18
He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
19
Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?
20
The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee?
21
Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel.
22
Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man.
23
If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day?
24
Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
25
Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill?
26
But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?
27
Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.
28
Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.
29
But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.
30
Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.
31
And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?
32
The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.
33
Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me.
34
Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.
35
Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?
36
What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?
37
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
38
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
39
But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
40
Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.
41
Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?
42
Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?
43
So there was a division among the people because of him.
44
And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.
45
Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?
46
The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.
47
Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?
48
Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?
49
But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.
50
Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)
51
Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?
52
They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.
53
And every man went unto his own house.
