Book of Proverbs Chapter 20

PROVERBS 20:1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.

PROVERBS 20:2 The fear of a king is as the roaring of a lion: whoso provoketh him to anger sinneth against his own soul.

PROVERBS 20:3 It is an honour for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling.

PROVERBS 20:4 The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.

PROVERBS 20:5 Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it out.

PROVERBS 20:6 Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?

PROVERBS 20:7 The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.

PROVERBS 20:8 A king that sitteth in the throne of judgment scattereth away all evil with his eyes.

PROVERBS 20:9 Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?

PROVERBS 20:10 Divers weights, and divers measures, both of them are alike abomination to the LORD.

PROVERBS 20:11 Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.

PROVERBS 20:12 The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.

PROVERBS 20:13 Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.

PROVERBS 20:14 It is naught, it is naught, saith the buyer: but when he is gone his way, then he boasteth.

PROVERBS 20:15 There is gold, and a multitude of rubies: but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.

PROVERBS 20:16 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger: and take a pledge of him for a strange woman.

PROVERBS 20:17 Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.

PROVERBS 20:18 Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.

PROVERBS 20:19 He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.

PROVERBS 20:20 Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness.

PROVERBS 20:21 An inheritance may be gotten hastily at the beginning; but the end thereof shall not be blessed.

PROVERBS 20:22 Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee.

PROVERBS 20:23 Divers weights are an abomination unto the LORD; and a false balance is not good.

PROVERBS 20:24 Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?

PROVERBS 20:25 It is a snare to the man who devoureth that which is holy, and after vows to make enquiry.

PROVERBS 20:26 A wise king scattereth the wicked, and bringeth the wheel over them.

PROVERBS 20:27 The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.

PROVERBS 20:28 Mercy and truth preserve the king: and his throne is upholden by mercy.

PROVERBS 20:29 The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head.

PROVERBS 20:30 The blueness of a wound cleanseth away evil: so do stripes the inward parts of the belly.

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.
