Proverbs 24 - AMP

2 For their minds plot oppression and devise violence, and their lips talk of causing trouble and vexation. 3 Through skillful and godly Wisdom is a house (a life, a home, a family) built, and by understanding it is established , 4 And by knowledge shall its chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches. 5 A wise man is strong and Several other texts, including The Septuagint (Greek translation of the Old Testament), so read.is better than a strong man, and a man of knowledge increases and strengthens his power; 6 For by wise counsel you can wage your war, and in an abundance of counselors there is victory and safety. 7 Wisdom is too high for a See footnote on Proverbs 14:3.fool; he opens not his mouth in the gate . 8 He who plans to do evil will be called a mischief-maker. 9 The plans of the foolish and the thought of foolishness are sin, and the scoffer is an abomination to men. 10 If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small. 11 Deliver those who are drawn away to death, and those who totter to the slaughter, hold them back . 12 If you say, Behold, we did not know this, does not He Who weighs and ponders the heart perceive and consider it? And He Who guards your life, does not He know it? And shall not He render to every man according to his works? 13 My son, eat honey, because it is good, and the drippings of the honeycomb are sweet to your taste. 14 So shall you know skillful and godly Wisdom to be thus to your life; if you find it, then shall there be a future and a reward, and your hope and expectation shall not be cut off. 15 Lie not in wait as a wicked man against the dwelling of the righteous (the upright, in right standing with God); destroy not his resting-place; 16 For a righteous man falls seven times and rises again, but the wicked are overthrown by calamity. 17 Rejoice not when your enemy falls, and let not your heart be glad when he stumbles or is overthrown, 18 Lest the Lord see it and it be evil in His eyes and displease Him, and He turn away His wrath from him . 19 Fret not because of evildoers, neither be envious of the wicked, 20 For there shall be no reward for the evil man; the lamp of the wicked shall be put out. 21 My son, fear the Lord and the king, and do not associate with those who are given to change , 22 For their calamity shall rise suddenly, and who knows the punishment and ruin which both will bring upon ? 23 These also are sayings of the wise: To discriminate and show partiality, having respect of persons in judging, is not good. 24 He who says to the wicked, You are righteous and innocent--peoples will curse him, nations will defy and abhor him. 25 But to those who rebuke the wicked, it will go well with them and they will find delight, and a good blessing will be upon them. 26 He kisses the lips who give a right answer. 27 Prepare your work outside and get it ready for yourself in the field; and afterward build your house and establish a home. 28 Be not a witness against your neighbor without cause, and deceive not with your lips. 29 Say not, I will do to him as he has done to me; I will pay the man back for his deed. 30 I went by the field of the lazy man, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding; 31 And, behold, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles were covering its face, and its stone wall was broken down. 32 Then I beheld and considered it well; I looked and received instruction. 33 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep-- 34 So shall your poverty come as a robber, and your want as an armed man.
