Proverbs Chapter 17 - King James Strong Number Version

1
Better [H2896] [is] a dry [H2720] morsel, [H6595] and quietness [H7962] therewith, than an house [H1004] full [H4392] of sacrifices [H2077] [with] strife. [H7379]
2
A wise [H7919] servant [H5650] shall have rule [H4910] over a son [H1121] that causeth shame, [H0954] and shall have part [H2505] of the inheritance [H5159] among [H8432] the brethren. [H0251]
3
The fining pot [H4715] [is] for silver, [H3701] and the furnace [H3564] for gold: [H2091] but the LORD [H3068] trieth [H0974] the hearts. [H3826]
4
A wicked doer [H7489] giveth heed [H7181] to false [H0205] lips; [H8193] [and] a liar [H8267] giveth ear [H0238] to a naughty [H1942] tongue. [H3956]
5
Whoso mocketh [H3932] the poor [H7326] reproacheth [H2778] his Maker: [H6213] [and] he that is glad [H8056] at calamities [H0343] shall not be unpunished. [H5352]
6
Children's [H1121] children [H1121] [are] the crown [H5850] of old men; [H2205] and the glory [H8597] of children [H1121] [are] their fathers. [H0001]
7
Excellent [H3499] speech [H8193] becometh [H5000] not a fool: [H5036] much less do lying [H8267] lips [H8193] a prince. [H5081]
8
A gift [H7810] [is as] a precious [H2580] stone [H0068] in the eyes [H5869] of him that hath [H1167] it: whithersoever it turneth, [H6437] it prospereth. [H7919]
9
He that covereth [H3680] a transgression [H6588] seeketh [H1245] love; [H0160] but he that repeateth [H8138] a matter [H1697] separateth [H6504] [very] friends. [H0441]
10
A reproof [H1606] entereth [H5181] more into a wise man [H0995] than an hundred [H3967] stripes [H5221] into a fool. [H3684]
11
An evil [H7451] [man] seeketh [H1245] only rebellion: [H4805] therefore a cruel [H0394] messenger [H4397] shall be sent [H7971] against him.
12
Let a bear [H1677] robbed [H7909] of her whelps meet [H6298] a man, [H0376] rather than [H0408] a fool [H3684] in his folly. [H0200]
13
Whoso rewardeth [H7725] evil [H7451] for good, [H2896] evil [H7451] shall not depart [H4185] from his house. [H1004]
14
The beginning [H7225] of strife [H4066] [is as] when one letteth out [H6362] water: [H4325] therefore leave off [H5203] contention, [H7379] before [H6440] it be meddled [H1566] with.
15
He that justifieth [H6663] the wicked, [H7563] and he that condemneth [H7561] the just, [H6662] even they both [H8147] [are] abomination [H8441] to the LORD. [H3068]
16
Wherefore [is there] a price [H4242] in the hand [H3027] of a fool [H3684] to get [H7069] wisdom, [H2451] seeing [he hath] no heart [H3820] [to it]?
17
A friend [H7453] loveth [H0157] at all times, [H6256] and a brother [H0251] is born [H3205] for adversity. [H6869]
18
A man [H0120] void [H2638] of understanding [H3820] striketh [H8628] hands, [H3709] [and] becometh [H6148] surety [H6161] in the presence [H6440] of his friend. [H7453]
19
He loveth [H0157] transgression [H6588] that loveth [H0157] strife: [H4683] [and] he that exalteth [H1361] his gate [H6607] seeketh [H1245] destruction. [H7667]
20
He that hath a froward [H6141] heart [H3820] findeth [H4672] no good: [H2896] and he that hath a perverse [H2015] tongue [H3956] falleth [H5307] into mischief. [H7451]
21
He that begetteth [H3205] a fool [H3684] [doeth it] to his sorrow: [H8424] and the father [H0001] of a fool [H5036] hath no joy. [H8055]
22
A merry [H8056] heart [H3820] doeth good [H3190] [like] a medicine: [H1456] but a broken [H5218] spirit [H7307] drieth [H3001] the bones. [H1634]
23
A wicked [H7563] [man] taketh [H3947] a gift [H7810] out of the bosom [H2436] to pervert [H5186] the ways [H0734] of judgment. [H4941]
24
Wisdom [H2451] [is] before [H6440] him that hath understanding; [H0995] but the eyes [H5869] of a fool [H3684] [are] in the ends [H7097] of the earth. [H0776]
25
A foolish [H3684] son [H1121] [is] a grief [H3708] to his father, [H0001] and bitterness [H4470] to her that bare [H3205] him.
26
Also to punish [H6064] the just [H6662] [is] not good, [H2896] [nor] to strike [H5221] princes [H5081] for equity. [H3476]
27
He that hath [H3045] knowledge [H1847] spareth [H2820] his words: [H0561] [and] a man [H0376] of understanding [H8394] is of an excellent [H3368] [H7119] spirit. [H7307]
28
Even a fool, [H0191] when he holdeth his peace, [H2790] is counted [H2803] wise: [H2450] [and] he that shutteth [H0331] his lips [H8193] [is esteemed] a man of understanding. [H0995]
