The Books of Poetry
I Timothy 1-3
Better a dry crust with peace and quiet than a house full of feasting, with strife.
A wise servant will rule over a disgraceful son, and will share the inheritance as one of the brothers.
The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but the LORD tests the heart.
A wicked man listens to evil lips; a liar pays attention to a malicious tongue.
He who mocks the poor shows contempt for their Maker; whoever gloats over disaster will not go unpunished.
Children's children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children.
Arrogant lips are unsuited to a fool-- how much worse lying lips to a ruler!
A bribe is a charm to the one who gives it; wherever he turns, he succeeds.
He who covers over an offense promotes love, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends.
A rebuke impresses a man of discernment more than a hundred lashes a fool.
An evil man is bent only on rebellion; a merciless official will be sent against him.
Better to meet a bear robbed of her cubs than a fool in his folly.
If a man pays back evil for good, evil will never leave his house.
Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out.
Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent-- the LORD detests them both.
Of what use is money in the hand of a fool, since he has no desire to get wisdom?
A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
A man lacking in judgment strikes hands in pledge and puts up security for his neighbor.
He who loves a quarrel loves sin; he who builds a high gate invites destruction.
A man of perverse heart does not prosper; he whose tongue is deceitful falls into trouble.
To have a fool for a son brings grief; there is no joy for the father of a fool.
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
A wicked man accepts a bribe in secret to pervert the course of justice.
A discerning man keeps wisdom in view, but a fool's eyes wander to the ends of the earth.
A foolish son brings grief to his father and bitterness to the one who bore him.
It is not good to punish an innocent man, or to flog officials for their integrity.
A man of knowledge uses words with restraint, and a man of understanding is even-tempered.
Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue.
An unfriendly man pursues selfish ends; he defies all sound judgment.
A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinions.
When wickedness comes, so does contempt, and with shame comes disgrace.
The words of a man's mouth are deep waters, but the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.
It is not good to be partial to the wicked or to deprive the innocent of justice.
A fool's lips bring him strife, and his mouth invites a beating.
A fool's mouth is his undoing, and his lips are a snare to his soul.
The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to a man's inmost parts.
One who is slack in his work is brother to one who destroys.
The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.
The wealth of the rich is their fortified city; they imagine it an unscalable wall.
Before his downfall a man's heart is proud, but humility comes before honor.
He who answers before listening-- that is his folly and his shame.
A man's spirit sustains him in sickness, but a crushed spirit who can bear?
The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge; the ears of the wise seek it out.
A gift opens the way for the giver and ushers him into the presence of the great.
The first to present his case seems right, till another comes forward and questions him.
Casting the lot settles disputes and keeps strong opponents apart.
An offended brother is more unyielding than a fortified city, and disputes are like the barred gates of a citadel.
From the fruit of his mouth a man's stomach is filled; with the harvest from his lips he is satisfied.
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD.
A poor man pleads for mercy, but a rich man answers harshly.
A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
