Proverbs 20

Instructions and admonitions to sons

(19:20-24:34) -continued

Three great facts

__________________________________

1 Wine is a mocker, Strong drink is a brawler, And whoever is led astray by it is not wise.

Two things to fear

__________________________________

2 The wrath of a king is like
the roaring of a lion; Whoever provokes him to anger sins against his own life.

True honor and dishonor

__________________________________

3 It is
honorable for a man to stop striving, Since any fool can start a quarrel.

Why some men beg

__________________________________

Proverbs 20:4 4 The
lazy man will not plow because of winter; He will beg during harvest and have nothing.

Contrasted wells

__________________________________

5
Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water, But a man of understanding will draw it out.

Something scarce

__________________________________

6 Most men will proclaim each
his own goodness, But who can find a faithful man?

A profitable walk

__________________________________

7
The righteous man walks in his integrity; His children are blessed after him.

A minister for good

__________________________________

8
A king who sits on the throne of judgment Scatters all evil with his eyes.

A big question

__________________________________

9 Who can say, "I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin"?

Two abominable things

__________________________________

10
Diverse weights and diverse measures, They are both alike, an abomination to the LORD.

Common knowledge

__________________________________

11 Even a child is known by
his deeds, Whether what he does is pure and right.

Two created things

__________________________________

12 The hearing ear and
the seeing eye, The LORD has made them both.

How to escape poverty

__________________________________

13 Do not love sleep, lest you come to
poverty; Open your eyes, and you will be satisfied with bread. 14 "It is good for nothing," cries the buyer; But when he has gone his way, then he boasts.

A universal practice

__________________________________

15 There is gold and a multitude of rubies, But
the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.

Double security

__________________________________

16 Take the garment of one who is surety for a stranger, And hold it as a pledge when it is for a seductress.

Sowing and reaping

__________________________________

17
Bread gained by deceit is sweet to a man, But afterward his mouth will be filled with gravel.

Sound advice

__________________________________

18 Plans are established by counsel; By
wise counsel wage war. Proverbs 20:19 19 He who goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets; Therefore do not associate with one who flatters with his lips.

Three unfailing laws

__________________________________

20
Whoever curses his father or his mother, His lamp will be put out in deep darkness. 21 An inheritance gained hastily at the beginning Will not be blessed at the end. 22 Do not say, "I will recompense evil"; Wait for the LORD, and He will save you.

Two abominable things

__________________________________

23 Diverse weights are an abomination to the LORD, And
dishonest scales are not good.

God's providence

__________________________________

24
A man's steps are of the LORD; How then can a man understand his own way?

Two evils in religion

__________________________________

25 It is
a snare for a man to devote rashly something as holy, And afterward to reconsider his vows.

A minister for good

__________________________________

26 A wise king sifts out the wicked, And brings the threshing wheel over them.

The light of man

__________________________________

27
The spirit of a man is the lamp of the LORD, Searching all the inner depths of his heart.

An antidote for anarchy

__________________________________

28 Mercy and truth preserve the king, And by
lovingkindness he upholds his throne.

Contrasted glory

__________________________________

29 The glory of young men is their strength, And the splendor of old men is
their gray head.

Two kinds of healing

__________________________________

30
Blows that hurt cleanse away evil, As do stripes the inner depths of the heart.
