Proverbs 12 (asv)
But he that hateth reproof is brutish.
But a man of wicked devices will he condemn.
12:3A man shall not be established by wickedness;
But the root of the righteous shall not be moved.
But she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.
12:5The thoughts of the righteous are just;
But the counsels of the wicked are deceit.
But the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.
12:7The wicked are overthrown, and are not;
But he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.
12:9Better is he that is lightly esteemed, and hath a servant,
Than he that honoreth himself, and lacketh bread.
But the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.
12:11He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread;
But he that followeth after vain persons is void of understanding.
But the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit.
But the righteous shall come out of trouble.
And the doings of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him.
But he that is wise hearkeneth unto counsel.
12:16A fool's vexation is presently known;
But a prudent man concealeth shame.
But a false witness, deceit.
12:18There is that speaketh rashly like the piercings of a sword;
But the tongue of the wise is health.
12:19The lip of truth shall be established for ever;
But a lying tongue is but for a moment.
12:21There shall no mischief happen to the righteous;
But the wicked shall be filled with evil.
But they that deal truly are his delight.
But the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.
But the slothful shall be put under taskwork.
12:26The righteous is a guide to his neighbor;
But the way of the wicked causeth them to err.
12:27The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting;
And in the pathway thereof there is no death.
