Proverbs 24:3 By wisdom a house is built, And by understanding it is established;
Proverbs 24:4 And by knowledge the rooms are filled With all precious and pleasant riches.

Proverbs 24:9 The devising of folly is sin, And the scoffer is an abomination to men.
Proverbs 24:10 If you are slack in the day of distress, Your strength is limited.
Proverbs 24:11 Deliver those who are being taken away to death, And those who are staggering to slaughter, Oh hold them back.
Proverbs 24:12 If you say," See, we did not know this," Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts? And does He not know it who keeps your soul? And will He not render to man according to his work?
Proverbs 24:13 My son, eat honey, for it is good, Yes, the honey from the comb is sweet to your taste;
Proverbs 24:14 Know that wisdom is thus for your soul; If you find it, then there will be a future, And your hope will not be cut off.
Proverbs 24:15 Do not lie in wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous; Do not destroy his resting place;
Proverbs 24:16 For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again, But the wicked stumble in time of calamity.
Proverbs 24:17 Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles;
Proverbs 24:18 Or the Lord will see it and be displeased, And turn His anger away from him.

Proverbs 24:24 He who says to the wicked," You are righteous," Peoples will curse him, nations will abhor him;
Proverbs 24:25 But to those who rebuke the wicked will be delight, And a good blessing will come upon them.
Proverbs 24:26 He kisses the lips Who gives a right answer.
Proverbs 24:27 Prepare your work outside And make it ready for yourself in the field; Afterwards, then, build your house.
Proverbs 24:28 Do not be a witness against your neighbor without cause, And do not deceive with your lips.
Proverbs 24:29 Do not say," Thus I shall do to him as he has done to me; I will render to the man according to his work."
Proverbs 24:30 I passed by the field of the sluggard And by the vineyard of the man lacking sense,
Proverbs 24:31 And behold, it was completely overgrown with thistles; Its surface was covered with nettles, And its stone wall was broken down.
Proverbs 24:32 When I saw, I reflected upon it; I looked, and received instruction.
Proverbs 24:33 "A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to rest,"
Proverbs 24:34 Then your poverty will come as a robber And your want like an armed man.
