Proverbs 19:3 Foolishnesse maketh a man to go out of his waye, & then is his herte vnpacient agaynst the LORDE. Proverbs 19:4 Riches make many frendes, but the poore is forsake of his owne frendes. Proverbs 19:5 A false wytnesse shal not remayne vnpunyshed, and he that speaketh lyes shal not escape. Proverbs 19:6 The multitude hageth vpo greate men, & euery man fauoureth him that geueth rewardes. Proverbs 19:7 As for the poore, he is hated amonge all his brethren: yee his owne frendes forsake him, & he that geueth credece vnto wordes, getteth nothinge. Proverbs 19:8 He that is wyse, loueth his owne soule: and who so hath vnderstondinge, shal prospere. Proverbs 19:9 A false wytnesse shal not remayne vnpunyshed, & he yt speaketh lyes shal perishe. Proverbs 19:10 Delicate ease becometh not a foole, moch more vnsemely is it, a bonde man to haue ye rule of prynces.

Proverbs 19:12 The kynges disfauor is like ye roaringe of a Lyo, but his fredshpe is like the dewe vpo ye grasse. Proverbs 19:13 An vndiscrete sonne is ye heuynes of his father, & a braulynge wife is like the topp of an house, where thorow it is euer droppynge. Proverbs 19:14 House & riches maye a ma haue by ye heretage of his elders, but a discrete woma is the gifte of the LORDE. Proverbs 19:15 Slouthfulnes bryngeth slepe, & an ydell soule shal suffer hoger. Proverbs 19:16 Who so kepeth the comaundemet, kepeth his owne soule: but he yt regardeth not his waye, shal dye. Proverbs 19:17 He yt hath pitie vpon the poore, ledeth vnto ye LORDE: & loke what he layeth out, it shalbe payed him agayne. Proverbs 19:18 Chaste yi sonne whyle there is hope, but let not yi soule be moued to slaye hi. Proverbs 19:19 For greate wrath bryngeth harme, therfore let him go, and so mayest thou teach him more nurtoure.

Proverbs 19:25 Yf thou smytest a scorneful personne, the ignoraut shal take better hede: & yf thou reprouest one yt hath vnderstondinge, he wil be ye wyser.
