14 The ⌊wisest of women⌋a builds her house,
but the foolish tears it down with her hands.
but he who is devious in his ways displeases him.
but the lips of the wise preserve them.
4 ⌊When there are no⌋b oxen the manger is empty,
but an abundance of crops comes by the strength of an ox.c
but he who breathes out falsehood is a witness of deceit.
but knowledge ⌊comes easily to him who understands⌋.d
7 Leave ⌊the presence of a foolish man⌋,e
for you will not come to know ⌊words of knowledge⌋.f
but the folly of fools is deceit.
9 Fools mockg the guilt offering,
but among the upright, it is favorable.
but in its joy, it will not share itself with a stranger.
but the tent of the upright will flourish.
12 There is a way that seems upright ⌊to⌋j a man,
but its end is the way of death.
and the end of joy may be grief.
and ⌊from his own⌋,k so shall a good man.
but the clever will consider his step.
but the fool throws off restraint and is confident.
17 He who is short of ⌊temper⌋l will act foolishly,
and the man who schemes will be hated.
but the clever are crowned with knowledge.
and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.
but the lovers of the rich are many.
but he who has mercy on the poor blesses him.
But loyalty and faithfulness belong to those who plan good.
but the ⌊talk⌋m of lips leads only to poverty.
the folly of fools is folly.
25 He who saves livesn is a witness of truth,
but he who utters lies is a betrayer.
and for his children, there will be refuge.
in order to turn from the snares of death.
but without a population, a prince is ruined.
but the hasty of spirito exalts folly.
but causes bones of passion to rot.
but he who has mercy on the poor honors him.
and the righteous will find refuge in his death.
33 In the heartr of him who has understanding, wisdom rests,
but even in the midst of fools it becomes known.
but sin is a reproach to a people.
but his wrath will be on him who acts shamefully.
