The King James Version Bible

Proverbs 10:1-7

  1. The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother.

  2. Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.

  3. The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked.

  4. He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.

  5. He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.

  6. Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.

  7. The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.
