Proverbs 20:1-9

1. Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, And whoever is intoxicated by it is not wise. 2. The terror of a king is like the growling of a lion; He who provokes him to anger forfeits his own life. 3. Keeping away from strife is an honor for a man, But any fool will quarrel. 4. The sluggard does not plow after the autumn, So he begs during the harvest and has nothing. 5. A plan in the heart of a man is like deep water, But a man of understanding draws it out. 6. Many a man proclaims his own loyalty, But who can find a trustworthy man? 7. A righteous man who walks in his integrity-- How blessed are his sons after him. 8. A king who sits on the throne of justice Disperses all evil with his eyes. 9. Who can say, ``I have cleansed my heart, I am pure from my sin"?
