4 cThe lazy man will not plow because of winter;

dHe will beg during harvest and have nothing.

5 Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water,

But a man of understanding will draw it out.

6 Most men will proclaim each his own 2goodness,

But who can find a faithful man?

7 eThe righteous man walks in his integrity;

fHis children are blessed after him.

8 A king who sits on the throne of judgment

Scatters all evil with his eyes.

9 gWho can say, “I have made my heart clean,

I am pure from my sin”?

10 hDiverse weights and diverse measures,

They are both alike, an abomination to the Lord.

11 Even a child is iknown by his deeds,

Whether what he does is pure and right.

12 jThe hearing ear and the seeing eye,

The Lord has made them both.

13 kDo not love sleep, lest you come to poverty;

Open your eyes, and you will be satisfied with bread.
