Book of Proverbs Chapter 12

PROVERBS 12:1 Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish.

PROVERBS 12:2 A good man obtaineth favour of the LORD: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn.

PROVERBS 12:3 A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.

PROVERBS 12:4 A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.

PROVERBS 12:5 The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.

PROVERBS 12:6 The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.

PROVERBS 12:7 The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.

PROVERBS 12:8 A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.

PROVERBS 12:9 He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread.

PROVERBS 12:10 A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.

PROVERBS 12:11 He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.

PROVERBS 12:12 The wicked desireth the net of evil men: but the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit.

PROVERBS 12:13 The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.

PROVERBS 12:14 A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompence of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him.

PROVERBS 12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.

PROVERBS 12:16 A fool's wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covereth shame.

PROVERBS 12:17 He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit.

PROVERBS 12:18 There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.

PROVERBS 12:19 The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.

PROVERBS 12:20 Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy.

PROVERBS 12:21 There shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief.

PROVERBS 12:22 Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.

PROVERBS 12:23 A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.

PROVERBS 12:24 The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute.

PROVERBS 12:25 Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.

PROVERBS 12:26 The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.

PROVERBS 12:27 The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious.

PROVERBS 12:28 In the way of righteousness is life: and in the pathway thereof there is no death.

History of the King James Bible

Meaning and pronunciation of Hebrew names in the Old Testament

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
