Book of Proverbs Chapter 18

PROVERBS 18:1 Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.

PROVERBS 18:2 A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.

PROVERBS 18:3 When the wicked cometh, then cometh also contempt, and with ignominy reproach.

PROVERBS 18:4 The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.

PROVERBS 18:5 It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment.

PROVERBS 18:6 A fool's lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for strokes.

PROVERBS 18:7 A fool's mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.

PROVERBS 18:8 The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.

PROVERBS 18:9 He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.

PROVERBS 18:10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.

PROVERBS 18:11 The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit.

PROVERBS 18:12 Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.

PROVERBS 18:13 He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.

PROVERBS 18:14 The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?

PROVERBS 18:15 The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.

PROVERBS 18:16 A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.

PROVERBS 18:17 He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.

PROVERBS 18:18 The lot causeth contentions to cease, and parteth between the mighty.

PROVERBS 18:19 A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.

PROVERBS 18:20 A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.

PROVERBS 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

PROVERBS 18:22 Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.

PROVERBS 18:23 The poor useth intreaties; but the rich answereth roughly.

PROVERBS 18:24 A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

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.
