    17:1 Better 2896 [is] a dry 2720 morsel 6595, and quietness 7962 therewith, than an house 1004 full 4392 of sacrifices 2077 [with] strife 7379.(sacrifices: or, good cheer)

    17:2 A wise 7919 8688 servant 5650 shall have rule 4910 8799 over a son 1121 that causeth shame 954 8688, and shall have part 2505 8799 of the inheritance 5159 among 8432 the brethren 251.

    17:3 The fining pot 4715 [is] for silver 3701, and the furnace 3564 for gold 2091: but the LORD 3068 trieth 974 8802 the hearts 3826.

    17:4 A wicked doer 7489 8688 giveth heed 7181 8688 to false 205 lips 8193; [and] a liar 8267 giveth ear 238 8688 to a naughty 1942 tongue 3956.

    17:5 Whoso mocketh 3932 8802 the poor 7326 8802 reproacheth 2778 8765 his Maker 6213 8802: [and] he that is glad 8056 at calamities 343 shall not be unpunished 5352 8735.(unpunished: Heb. held innocent)

    17:6 Children's 1121 children 1121 [are] the crown 5850 of old men 2205; and the glory 8597 of children 1121 [are] their fathers 1.

    17:7 Excellent 3499 speech 8193 becometh 5000 not a fool 5036: much less do lying 8267 lips 8193 a prince 5081.(Excellent…: Heb. A lip of excellency)(lying…: Heb. a lip of lying)

    17:8 A gift 7810 [is as] a precious 2580 stone 68 in the eyes 5869 of him that hath 1167 it: whithersoever it turneth 6437 8799, it prospereth 7919 8686.(a precious…: Heb. a stone of grace)

    17:9 He that covereth 3680 8764 a transgression 6588 seeketh 1245 8764 love 160; but he that repeateth 8138 8802 a matter 1697 separateth 6504 8688 [very] friends 441.(seeketh: or, procureth)

    17:10 A reproof 1606 entereth 5181 8799 more into a wise man 995 8688 than an hundred 3967 stripes 5221 8687 into a fool 3684.(entereth…: or, aweth more a wise man, than to strike a fool an hundred times)

    17:11 An evil 7451 [man] seeketh 1245 8762 only rebellion 4805: therefore a cruel 394 messenger 4397 shall be sent 7971 8792 against him.

    17:12 Let a bear 1677 robbed 7909 of her whelps meet 6298 8800 a man 376, rather than 408 a fool 3684 in his folly 200.

    17:13 Whoso rewardeth 7725 8688 evil 7451 for good 2896, evil 7451 shall not depart 4185 8799 8675 4185 8686 from his house 1004.

    17:14 The beginning 7225 of strife 4066 [is as] when one letteth out 6362 8802 water 4325: therefore leave off 5203 8800 contention 7379, before 6440 it be meddled 1566 8694 with.

    17:15 He that justifieth 6663 8688 the wicked 7563, and he that condemneth 7561 8688 the just 6662, even they both 8147 [are] abomination 8441 to the LORD 3068.

    17:16 Wherefore [is there] a price 4242 in the hand 3027 of a fool 3684 to get 7069 8800 wisdom 2451, seeing [he hath] no heart 3820 [to it]?

    17:17 A friend 7453 loveth 157 8802 at all times 6256, and a brother 251 is born 3205 8735 for adversity 6869.

    17:18 A man 120 void 2638 of understanding 3820 striketh 8628 8802 hands 3709, [and] becometh 6148 8802 surety 6161 in the presence 6440 of his friend 7453.(understanding: Heb. heart)

    17:19 He loveth 157 8802 transgression 6588 that loveth 157 8802 strife 4683: [and] he that exalteth 1361 8688 his gate 6607 seeketh 1245 8764 destruction 7667.

    17:20 He that hath a froward 6141 heart 3820 findeth 4672 8799 no good 2896: and he that hath a perverse 2015 8738 tongue 3956 falleth 5307 8799 into mischief 7451.(He that hath a froward…: Heb. The froward of heart)

    17:21 He that begetteth 3205 8802 a fool 3684 [doeth it] to his sorrow 8424: and the father 1 of a fool 5036 hath no joy 8055 8799.

    17:22 A merry 8056 heart 3820 doeth good 3190 8686 [like] a medicine 1456: but a broken 5218 spirit 7307 drieth 3001 8762 the bones 1634.(like: or, to)

    17:23 A wicked 7563 [man] taketh 3947 8799 a gift 7810 out of the bosom 2436 to pervert 5186 8687 the ways 734 of judgment 4941.

    17:24 Wisdom 2451 [is] before him that hath understanding 6440 995 8688; but the eyes 5869 of a fool 3684 [are] in the ends 7097 of the earth 776.

    17:25 A foolish 3684 son 1121 [is] a grief 3708 to his father 1, and bitterness 4470 to her that bare 3205 8802 him.

    17:26 Also to punish 6064 8800 the just 6662 [is] not good 2896, [nor] to strike 5221 8687 princes 5081 for equity 3476.

    17:27 He that hath 3045 8802 knowledge 1847 spareth 2820 8802 his words 561: [and] a man 376 of understanding 8394 is of an excellent 3368 8675 7119 spirit 7307.(an…: or, a cool)

    17:28 Even a fool 191, when he holdeth his peace 2790 8688, is counted 2803 8735 wise 2450: [and] he that shutteth 331 8801 his lips 8193 [is esteemed] a man of understanding 995 8737.
