Proverbs 12

12:1   Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
    but he who hates reproof is stupid.
  A good man obtains favor from the LORD,
    but a man of evil devices he condemns.
  No one is established by wickedness,
    but the root of the righteous will never be moved.
  An excellent wife is the crown of her husband,
    but she who brings shame is like rottenness in his bones.
  The thoughts of the righteous are just;
    the counsels of the wicked are deceitful.
  The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood,
    but the mouth of the upright delivers them.
  The wicked are overthrown and are no more,
    but the house of the righteous will stand.
  A man is commended according to his good sense,
    but one of twisted mind is despised.
  Better to be lowly and have a servant
    than to play the great man and lack bread.
10   Whoever is righteous has regard for the life of his beast,
    but the mercy of the wicked is cruel.
11   Whoever works his land will have plenty of bread,
    but he who follows worthless pursuits lacks sense.
12   Whoever is wicked covets the spoil of evildoers,
    but the root of the righteous bears fruit.
13   An evil man is ensnared by the transgression of his lips,
    but the righteous escapes from trouble.
14   From the fruit of his mouth a man is satisfied with good,
    and the work of a man’s hand comes back to him.
15   The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,
    but a wise man listens to advice.
16   The vexation of a fool is known at once,
    but the prudent ignores an insult.
17   Whoever speaks the truth gives honest evidence,
    but a false witness utters deceit.
18   There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts,
    but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
19   Truthful lips endure forever,
    but a lying tongue is but for a moment.
20   Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil,
    but those who plan peace have joy.
21   No ill befalls the righteous,
    but the wicked are filled with trouble.
22   Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD,
    but those who act faithfully are his delight.
23   A prudent man conceals knowledge,
    but the heart of fools proclaims folly.
24   The hand of the diligent will rule,
    while the slothful will be put to forced labor.
25   Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down,
    but a good word makes him glad.
26   One who is righteous is a guide to his neighbor,
    but the way of the wicked leads them astray.
27   Whoever is slothful will not roast his game,
    but the diligent man will get precious wealth.
28   In the path of righteousness is life,
    and in its pathway there is no death.

Psalm 150

150:1   Praise the LORD!
  Praise God in his sanctuary;
    praise him in his mighty heavens!
  Praise him for his mighty deeds;
    praise him according to his excellent greatness!
  Praise him with trumpet sound;
    praise him with lute and harp!
  Praise him with tambourine and dance;
    praise him with strings and pipe!
  Praise him with sounding cymbals;
    praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
  Let everything that has breath praise the LORD!
  Praise the LORD!

King James Version (KJV)

Proverbs 12:1-28

1Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish.2A good man obtaineth favour of the LORD: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn.3A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.4A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.5The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.6The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.7The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.8A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.9He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread.10A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.11He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.12The wicked desireth the net of evil men: but the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit.13The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.14A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompense of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him.15The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.16A fool's wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covereth shame.17He that speaketh truth showeth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit.18There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.19The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.20Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy.21There shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief.22Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.23A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.24The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute.25Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.26The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.27The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious.28In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death.

Psalm 150:1-6

1Praise ye the LORD.

praise him according to his excellent greatness.
3Praise him with the sound of the trumpet:
praise him with the psaltery and harp.
4Praise him with the timbrel and dance:
praise him with stringed instruments and organs.
5Praise him upon the loud cymbals:
praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.
6Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD.
Praise ye the LORD.
