1屡教不改、顽固不化者,

必突然灭亡,无可挽救。

2义人增多,万众欢腾;

恶人得势,万民叹息。

3爱慕智慧的使父亲欢欣,

结交妓女的必耗尽钱财。

4君王秉公行义,国家安定;

他若收受贿赂,国必倾倒。

义人却常常欢喜歌唱。

7义人关心穷人的冤屈,

恶人对此漠不关心。

8狂徒煽动全城,

智者平息众怒。

9智者跟愚人对簿公堂,

愚人会怒骂嬉笑不止。

10嗜杀之徒憎恶纯全无过的人,

但正直的人保护他们29:10 但正直的人保护他们”或译“索取正直人的性命”。

11愚人尽发其怒,

智者忍气含怒。

12君王若听谗言,

臣仆必成奸徒。

13贫穷人和欺压者有共同点:

他们的眼睛都是耶和华所赐。

他的王位必永远坚立。

15管教之杖使孩子得智慧,

放纵的子女让母亲蒙羞。

16恶人当道,罪恶泛滥;

义人必得见他们败亡。

17好好管教儿子,

他会带给你平安和喜乐。

18百姓无神谕便任意妄为,

但遵守律法的人必蒙福。

19管教仆人不能单靠言语,

因为他虽明白却不服从。

20言语急躁的人,

还不如愚人有希望。

21主人若从小就娇惯仆人,

他终必成为主人的麻烦。

22愤怒的人挑起纷争,

暴躁的人多有过犯。

23骄傲的人必遭贬抑,

谦卑的人必得尊荣。

24与盗贼为伍是憎恶自己,

他即使发誓也不敢作证。

25惧怕人的必自陷网罗,

信靠耶和华的必安稳。

26许多人讨君王的欢心,

但正义伸张靠耶和华。

27为非作歹,义人厌恶;

行为正直,恶人憎恨。
