Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:1 - He who separates himself seeks his own desire,
He [fn]quarrels against all sound wisdom.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:2 - A fool does not delight in understanding,
But only in revealing his own [fn]mind.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:3 - When a wicked man comes, contempt also comes,
And with dishonor comes scorn.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:4 - The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters;
[fn]The fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:5 - To show partiality to the wicked is not good,
Nor to thrust aside the righteous in judgment.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:6 - A fool’s lips [fn]bring strife,
And his mouth calls for blows.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:7 - A fool’s mouth is his ruin,
And his lips are the snare of his soul.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:8 - The words of a whisperer are like dainty morsels,
And they go down into the [fn]innermost parts of the body.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:9 - He also who is slack in his work
Is brother to him who destroys.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:10 - The name of the LORD is a strong tower;
The righteous runs into it and is [fn]safe.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:11 - A rich man’s wealth is his strong city,
And like a high wall in his own imagination.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:12 - Before destruction the heart of man is haughty,
But humility goes before honor.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:13 - He who gives an answer before he hears,
It is folly and shame to him.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:14 - The spirit of a man can endure his sickness,
But as for a broken spirit who can bear it?

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:15 - The [fn]mind of the prudent acquires knowledge,
And the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:16 - A man’s gift makes room for him
And brings him before great men.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:17 - The first [fn]to plead his case seems right,
Until [fn]another comes and examines him.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:18 - The cast lot puts an end to strife
And [fn]decides between the mighty ones.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:19 - A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city,
And contentions are like the bars of a citadel.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:20 - With the [fn]fruit of a man’s mouth his stomach will be satisfied;
He will be satisfied with the product of his lips.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:21 - Death and life are in the [fn]power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:22 - He who finds a wife finds a good thing
And obtains favor from the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:23 - The poor man utters supplications,
But the rich man answers roughly.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 18:24 - A man of too many friends comes to [fn]ruin,
But there is a [fn]friend who sticks closer than a brother.
