  1. And this thing I say to you that are wise for you to learn: It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment.
  2. He that says of the ungodly, He is righteous, shall be cursed by peoples, and hateful among the nations.
  3. But they that reprove him shall appear more excellent, and blessing shall come upon them;
  4. and men will kiss lips that answer well.
  5. Prepare thy works for thy going forth, and prepare thyself for the field and come after me, and thou shalt rebuild thine house.
  6. Be not a false witness against thy fellow citizen, neither exaggerate with thy lips.
  7. Say not, As he has treated me, so will I treat him, and I will avenge myself on him for that wherein he has injured me.
  8. A foolish man is like a farm, and a senseless man is like a vineyard.
  9. If thou let him alone, he will altogether remain barren and covered with [a] weeds; and he becomes destitute, and his stone walls are broken down.
  10. Afterwards I reflected, I looked that I might receive instruction.
  11. The sluggard says, I slumber a little, and I sleep a little, and for a little while I fold my arms across my breast.
  12. But if thou do this, thy poverty will come speedily; and thy want like a swift courier.

[a] Gr. grass.
