Proverbs 13:2 A good man shall enioye þe frute of his mouth but he that hath a frowarde mynde, shalbe spoyled. Proverbs 13:3 He that kepeth hys mouth kepeth hys lyfe: but who so openeth hys lyppes to euell, destroyeth hym selfe. Proverbs 13:4 The slogarde wolde fayne haue, & cannot get hys desyre: but the soule of the diligent shall haue plenty. Proverbs 13:5 A ryghteous man abhorreth lyes, but the vngodly shameth both other and hym selfe. Proverbs 13:6 Ryghteousnesse kepeth the innocent in the waye, but vngodlynesse doth ouerthrowe the synner. Proverbs 13:7 Some men are ryche, though they haue nothynge, agayne some men are poore, hauing greate ryches. Proverbs 13:8 With goodes euery man delyuereth his lyfe, and the poore wyll not be reproued: Proverbs 13:9 The lyght of the ryghteous maketh ioyfull, but the candle of the vngodly shalbe put out.

Proverbs 13:12 Longe taryenge for a thynge that is differred, greueth the herte: but when the desyre commeth: it is a tree of lyfe. Proverbs 13:13 Whoso despyseth anye thinge, shalbe hurt for the same: but he þt feareth the commaundement, shall haue the rewarde. Proverbs 13:14 The lawe is a well of lyfe vnto þe wyse, that it maye kepe hym from the snares of death: Proverbs 13:15 Good vnderstandinge geueth fauour, but harde is þe waye of the despysers. Proverbs 13:16 A wyse man doth all thynges with discrecion, but a foole wyll declare hys foly. Proverbs 13:17 An vngodly messaunger falleth into myschefe, but a faythfull ambassadour is wholsome. Proverbs 13:18 He þt thinketh scorne to be refourmed, commeth to pouerte & sname: but whoso regardeth correccion shall come to honoure. Proverbs 13:19 When a desyre is brought to passe, it delyteth þe soule: but fooles counte it abhominacyon to departe from euell. Proverbs 13:20 He that goeth in the company of wyse men, shalbe wyse: but whoso is a companyon of fooles, shalbe hurte. Proverbs 13:21 Myschefe foloweth vpon synners, but the ryghteous shall haue a good rewarde. Proverbs 13:22 He that is vertuous, leaueth an enheritaunce vnto hys chylders children and þe ryches of the synner is layed vp for the iust. Proverbs 13:23 There is plenteousnesse of fode in the feldes of the poore, but þe felde not well ordred is without frute. Proverbs 13:24 He þt spareth the rodde, hateth hys sonne: but whoso loueth hym, chastiseth hym by tymes. Proverbs 13:25 The ryghteous eateth, and is satisfyed, but þe bely of þe vngodly hath neuer ynough.
