1. Better/good, (tov #2896a from # 2895) a dry, (chareb #2720a) morsel, (path #6595) with ease, (shalva #7962) than a house, (bayith #1004) full, (male #4392) of feasting/sacrifices, (zebach #2077) with strife, (rib #7379).
2. A Prudent, (Sakal #7919a) servant, (ebed #5650) will rule, (mashal #4910) over a shameful, (bosh #954) son and share, (chalak #2505a) the inheritance, (nachalah #5159) as a brother, (ach #251).
3. The crucible, (matzreph #4715) for silver, (kesph #3710) and the furnace, (Kur #3564a) for gold, (zahb #2091) YHVH tests, (bachan #974) the heart, (leb #3820).

5. Whoever mocks, (laag #3932) the poor, (roosh #7326) reproaches, (charaph #2778) their Maker, (Asah #6213); whoever gloats/is glad, (sameach #8056 from samach) at calamity/a firebrand, (ed #343 from ud) will not, (lo #3808) go unpunished/be without guilt, (naqah #5352).
6. Children’s, (ben #1121) children, (ben) are a crown, (atarah #5850 from atar) to the aged/elders, (zaqen #2205) and parents/grandparents, (av #1) are the glory, (tipharah #8597) of their children, (ben #1121).
7. Eloquent/abundant, (yether #3499) lips, (saphah #8193) are not (lo #3808) becoming, (naveh #5000) to a fool, (nabal #5036)—much less, (aph #637) deceitful, (sheqer #8267) lips, (saphah #8193# to a noble, (nadib #5081)!
8. A stone/jewel, (eben #68) gift/bribe, (shochad #7810) gives favor, (chen #2580) in the eyes, (ayin #5869) of its owner, (baal #1167); they think success, (sakal #7919) will come (asher #834) at, (el #412) all/every, (kol #3605) turn, (asher #6437).
9. Whoever covers, (kasah #3608) a transgression, (pesha #6588 ) seeks, (baqash #1245) love, (ahabah #160 from aheb) but whoever repeats, (shanah #8138) the matter/words, (dabar #1697) separates, (parad #6504) chiefs/friends, (aluf #441).
10. A rebuke, (gearah #1606 from gaar) goes deeper, (nacheth #5181) into the understanding, (bin #995) than a hundred, (meah #3967) lashes, (nakah #5221) into a fool, (kesil #3684).

15. Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent—YHVH detests them both.
16. Why should fools have money in hand to buy wisdom, when they are not able to understand it?
17. A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity.
18. One who has no sense shakes hands in pledge and puts up security for a neighbor.
19. Whoever loves a quarrel loves sin; whoever builds a high gate invites destruction.
20. One whose heart is corrupt does not prosper; one whose tongue is perverse falls into trouble.
21. To have a fool for a child brings grief; there is no joy for the parent of a godless fool.
22. A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
23. The wicked accept bribes in secret to pervert the course of justice.
24. A discerning person keeps wisdom in view, but a fool’s eyes wander to the ends of the earth.
25. A foolish son brings grief to his father and bitterness to the mother who bore him.
26. If imposing a fine on the innocent is not good, surely to flog honest officials is not right.
