Book of Proverbs Chapter 17

PROVERBS 17:1 Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife.

PROVERBS 17:2 A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causeth shame, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren.

PROVERBS 17:3 The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD trieth the hearts.

PROVERBS 17:4 A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.

PROVERBS 17:5 Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.

PROVERBS 17:6 Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.

PROVERBS 17:7 Excellent speech becometh not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince.

PROVERBS 17:8 A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth.

PROVERBS 17:9 He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.

PROVERBS 17:10 A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.

PROVERBS 17:11 An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.

PROVERBS 17:12 Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man, rather than a fool in his folly.

PROVERBS 17:13 Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.

PROVERBS 17:14 The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water: therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.

PROVERBS 17:15 He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.

PROVERBS 17:16 Wherefore is there a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing he hath no heart to it?

PROVERBS 17:17 A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

PROVERBS 17:18 A man void of understanding striketh hands, and becometh surety in the presence of his friend.

PROVERBS 17:19 He loveth transgression that loveth strife: and he that exalteth his gate seeketh destruction.

PROVERBS 17:20 He that hath a froward heart findeth no good: and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief.

PROVERBS 17:21 He that begetteth a fool doeth it to his sorrow: and the father of a fool hath no joy.

PROVERBS 17:22 A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

PROVERBS 17:23 A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.

PROVERBS 17:24 Wisdom is before him that hath understanding; but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.

PROVERBS 17:25 A foolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to her that bare him.

PROVERBS 17:26 Also to punish the just is not good, nor to strike princes for equity.

PROVERBS 17:27 He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.

PROVERBS 17:28 Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.

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.
