Some Proverbs


MANILA, Philippines - In the Book of Proverbs in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible, we read:

Chapter 1:

"1) The proverbs of Solomon, the son of David, King of Israel: 2) That men may appreciate wisdom and discipline, may understand words of intelligence; 3) May receive training in wise conduct, in what is right, just and honest; 4) That resourcefulness may be imparted to the simple; to the young man knowledge and discretion. 5) A wise man by hearing them will advance in learning, an intelligent man will gain sound guidance, 6) That he may comprehend proverb and parable, the words of the wise and their riddles. 7) The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; wisdom and instruction fools despise.

Chapter 10

"A wise son makes his father glad, but a foolish son is a grief to his mother. 2) Ill gotten treasures profit nothing, but virtue saves from death. 3) The Lord permits not the just to hunger, but the craving of the wicked he thwarts. 4) The slack hand impoverizes but the hand of the dilligent enriches. 5) A son who fills the granaries in summer is a credit; a son who slumbers during harvest a disgrace. 6) Blessings are for the head of the just, but a rod for the back of the fool. 7) The memory of the just will be blessed, but the name of the wicked will not. 8) A wise man heeds commands, but a prating fool will be overthrown. 9) He who walks honestly walks securely, but he whose ways are crooked will fair badly. 10) He who winks at a fault causes trouble, but he who frankly reproves promotes peace. 11)A fountain of life is the mouth of the just but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence. 12) Hatred stirs up disputes, but love covers all offenses. 13) On the lips of the intelligent is found wisdom, (but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence). …
