Proverbs 20

PROV 20:17 Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.

PROV 20:18 Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.

PROV 20:19 He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.

PROV 20:20 Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness.

PROV 20:21 An inheritance may be gotten hastily at the beginning; but the end thereof shall not be blessed.

PROV 20:22 Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee.

PROV 20:23 Divers weights are an abomination unto the LORD; and a false balance is not good.

PROV 20:24 Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?

PROV 20:25 It is a snare to the man who devoureth that which is holy, and after vows to make enquiry.

PROV 20:26 A wise king scattereth the wicked, and bringeth the wheel over them.

PROV 20:27 The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.

PROV 20:29 The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head.

PROV 20:30 The blueness of a wound cleanseth away evil: so do stripes the inward parts of the belly.
