1A human heart makes the plans, Yahweh gives the answer. 2A person's own acts seem right to the doer, but Yahweh is the weigher of souls. 3Commend what you do to Yahweh, and what you plan wil be achieved. 4Yahweh made everything for its own purpose, yes, even the wicked for the day of disaster. 5Every arrogant heart is abhorrent to Yahweh: be sure this wil not go unpunished. 6By faithful love and constancy sin is expiated; by fear of Yahweh evil is avoided. 7Let Yahweh be pleased with someone's way of life and he makes that person's very enemies intofriends. 8Better have little and with it uprightness than great revenues with injustice. 9The human heart may plan a course, but it is Yahweh who makes the steps secure. 10The lips of the king utter prophecies, he keeps faith when he speaks in judgement. 11The balances and scales belong to Yahweh, al the weights in the bag are of his making. 12Evil-doing is abhorrent to kings, since uprightness is a throne's foundation. 13Upright lips are welcome to a king, he loves someone of honest words. 14The king's wrath is the herald of death, but the wise will appease it. 15When the king's face brightens it spel s life, his favour is like the rain in spring. 16Better gain wisdom than gold, choose understanding in preference to silver. 17To turn from evil is the way of the honest; whoever watches the path keeps life safe. 18Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fal . 19Better be humble with the poor than share the booty with the proud. 20Whoever listens closely to the word finds happiness; whoever trusts Yahweh is blessed. 21The wise of heart is acclaimed as intel igent, sweetness of speech increases knowledge. 22Shrewdness is a fountain of life for its possessor, the fol y of fools is their own punishment. 23The heart of the wise lends shrewdness to speech and makes words more persuasive. 24Kindly words are a honeycomb, sweet to the taste, wholesome to the body. 25There is a way that some think straight, but it leads in the end to death. 26A worker's appetite works on his behalf, for his hunger urges him on. 27A worthless person concocts evil, such a one's talk is like a scorching fire. 28A troublemaker sows strife, a slanderer divides friend from friend. 29The violent lures his neighbour astray and leads him by a way that is not good. 30Whoever narrows the eyes to think up tricks and purses the lips has already done wrong. 31White hairs are a crown of honour, they are found in the ways of uprightness. 32Better an equable person than a hero, someone with self-mastery than one who takes a city. 33In the fold of the garment the lot is thrown, but from Yahweh comes the decision.
