Pristine Grace

Prov 18:1-24, (KJV)
1  Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.
2  A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.
3  When the wicked cometh, then cometh also contempt, and with ignominy reproach.
4  The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.
5  It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment.
6  A fool's lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for strokes.
7  A fool's mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.
8  The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
9  He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.
10  The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
11  The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit.
12  Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.
13  He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.
14  The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?
15  The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.
16  A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.
17  He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.
18  The lot causeth contentions to cease, and parteth between the mighty.
19  A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.
20  A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.
21  Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
22  Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.
23  The poor useth intreaties; but the rich answereth roughly.
24  A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

Prov 18:1-24, (MKJV)
1  He that separates himself seeks his own desire; he breaks out against all sound wisdom.
2  A fool has no delight in understanding, but only that his heart may lay itself bare.
3  When the wicked comes, scorn also comes, and with shame comes reproach.
4  The words of a man's mouth are like deep waters; the fountain of wisdom is like a flowing stream.
5   It is not good to favor the person of the wicked, nor to overthrow the righteous in judgment.
6  A fool's lips enter into argument, and his mouth calls for strokes.
7  A fool's mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.
8  The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
9  Also he who is slack in his work is brother to a great destroyer.
10  The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.
11  The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as a high wall in his own mind.
12  Before shattering, the heart of man is proud, and before honor is humility.
13  If one answers a matter before he hears, it is folly and shame to him.
14  The spirit of a man will nourish his sickness, but a wounded spirit who can bear?
15  The heart of the prudent gets knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
16  A man's gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men.
17  The first in his cause seems just, but his neighbor comes and searches him.
18  The lot causes arguments to cease, and divides between the mighty.
19  A brother offended is like a strong city; and their disagreements are like the bars of a fortress.
20  A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; he shall be satisfied with the product of his lips.
21  Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it shall eat the fruit of it.
22   Whoever finds a wife finds good and gets favor from the LORD.
23  The poor speaks humble requests, but the rich answers roughly.
24  A man who has friends may be broken up, but there is a Lover who sticks closer than a brother.

Prov 18:1-24, (NASB)
1  He who separates himself seeks his own desire, He quarrels against all sound wisdom.
2  A fool does not delight in understanding, But only in revealing his own mind.
3  When a wicked man comes, contempt also comes, And with dishonor comes scorn.
4  The words of a man's mouth are deep waters; The fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.
5  To show partiality to the wicked is not good, Nor to thrust aside the righteous in judgment.
6  A fool's lips bring strife, And his mouth calls for blows.
7  A fool's mouth is his ruin, And his lips are the snare of his soul.
8  The words of a whisperer are like dainty morsels, And they go down into the innermost parts of the body.
9  He also who is slack in his work Is brother to him who destroys.
10  The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous runs into it and is safe.
11  A rich man's wealth is his strong city, And like a high wall in his own imagination.
12  Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, But humility goes before honor.
13  He who gives an answer before he hears, It is folly and shame to him.
14  The spirit of a man can endure his sickness, But as for a broken spirit who can bear it?
15  The mind of the prudent acquires knowledge, And the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
16  A man's gift makes room for him And brings him before great men.
17  The first to plead his case seems right, Until another comes and examines him.
18  The cast lot puts an end to strife And decides between the mighty ones.
19  A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city, And contentions are like the bars of a citadel.
20  With the fruit of a man's mouth his stomach will be satisfied; He will be satisfied with the product of his lips.
21  Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.
22  He who finds a wife finds a good thing And obtains favor from the Lord.
23  The poor man utters supplications, But the rich man answers roughly.
24  A man of too many friends comes to ruin, But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Prov 18:1-24, (LITV)
1  He who separates himself seeks his own desire, he breaks out against all sound wisdom.
2  A fool has no delight in understanding, but only in uncovering his heart.
3  When the wicked comes, scorn also comes, and with shame comes reproach.
4  The words of a man's mouth are like deep waters, the fountain of wisdom like a flowing stream.
5  To lift up the face of the wicked is not good, nor to turn aside the righteous in judgment.
6  A fool's lips enter into strife, and his mouth calls for strokes.
7  A fool's mouth is his destruction, and his lips are a snare of his soul.
8  The words of a slanderer are greedily swallowed; yea, they go down into the innermost chambers of the belly.
9  And he who is slack in his work, he is a brother to a master destroyer.
10  The name of Jehovah is a tower of strength, the righteous runs into it and is set on high.
11  The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as a high wall in his imagination.
12  Before shattering, a man's heart is haughty, but humility goes before honor.
13  If one rejects a matter before he hears, it is folly and shame to him.
14  The spirit of a man will nourish his sickness, but who can bear a wounded spirit?
15  The heart of the prudent gets knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
16  A man's gift makes room for him and brings him before great men.
17   He who is first in his cause seems just, but his neighbor comes and searches him.
18  The lot causes arguments to cease, and divides between the mighty.
19  An offended brother is worse than a fortified city; yea, their contentions are like the bars of a castle.
20  A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; he shall be satisfied with the produce of his lips.
21  Death and life are in the hand of the tongue, and those who love it shall eat its fruit.
22   Whoever finds a wife finds good, and gets favor from Jehovah.
23  The poor speak with entreaties, but the rich answer fiercely.
24  A man of friends may be broken up, but there is a Lover who sticks closer than a brother.
