    On Life And Conduct

    Proverbs Chapter 22 • Daily Reading by Pastor Chopper Ward

    Proverbs 22
    King James Version

    A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches,
    and loving favour rather than silver and gold.​

    2 The rich and poor meet together:
    the Lord is the maker of them all.​

    3 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself:
    but the simple pass on, and are punished.​

    4 By humility and the fear of the Lord
    are riches, and honour, and life.​

    5 Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward:
    he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.​

    6 Train up a child in the way he should go:
    and when he is old, he will not depart from it.​

    7 The rich ruleth over the poor, a
    nd the borrower is servant to the lender.​

    8 He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity:
    and the rod of his anger shall fail.​

    9 He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed;
    for he giveth of his bread to the poor.​

    10 Cast out the scorner, and contention shall go out;
    yea, strife and reproach shall cease.​

    11 He that loveth pureness of heart,
    for the grace of his lips
    the king shall be his friend.​

    12 The eyes of the Lord preserve knowledge,
    and he overthroweth the words of the transgressor.​

    13 The slothful man saith, There is a lion without,
    I shall be slain in the streets.​

    14 The mouth of strange women is a deep pit:
    he that is abhorred of the Lord shall fall therein.​

    15 Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child;
    but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.​

    16 He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches,
    and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.​

    Sayings Of The Wise

    Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise,
    and apply thine heart unto my knowledge.​
    18 For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee;
    they shall withal be fitted in thy lips.​
    19 That thy trust may be in the Lord,
    I have made known to thee this day, even to thee.​
    20 Have not I written to thee excellent things
    in counsels and knowledge,​
    21 That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth;
    that thou mightest answer the words of truth
    to them that send unto thee?​

    22 Rob not the poor, because he is poor:
    neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:​
    23 For the Lord will plead their cause,
    and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them.​

    24 Make no friendship with an angry man;
    and with a furious man thou shalt not go:​
    25 Lest thou learn his ways,
    and get a snare to thy soul.​

    26 Be not thou one of them that strike hands,
    or of them that are sureties for debts.​
    27 If thou hast nothing to pay,
    why should he take away thy bed from under thee?​

    28 Remove not the ancient landmark,
    which thy fathers have set.​

    29 Seest thou a man diligent in his business?
    he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.

    Let Us Then Be Diligent In God's Work

    About Author

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
