An unfriendly man pursues selfishness,
and defies all sound judgment.
2לֹֽא ־ יַחְפֹּ֣ץ כְּ֭סִיל בִּתְבוּנָ֑ה כִּ֝֗י אִֽם ־ בְּהִתְגַּלּ֥וֹת לִבּֽוֹ ׃Prv 18:2
A fool has no delight in understanding,
but only in revealing his own opinion.
3בְּֽבוֹא ־ רָ֭שָׁע בָּ֣א גַם ־ בּ֑וּז וְֽעִם ־ קָל֥וֹן חֶרְפָּֽה ׃Prv 18:3
When wickedness comes, contempt also comes,
and with shame comes disgrace.
4מַ֣יִם עֲ֭מֻקִּים דִּבְרֵ֣י פִי ־ אִ֑ישׁ נַ֥חַל נֹ֝בֵ֗עַ מְק֣וֹר חָכְמָֽה ׃Prv 18:4
The words of a man’s mouth are like deep waters.
The fountain of wisdom is like a flowing brook.
5שְׂאֵ֣ת פְּנֵי ־ רָשָׁ֣ע לֹא ־ ט֑וֹב לְהַטּ֥וֹת צַ֝דִּ֗יק בַּמִּשְׁפָּֽט ׃Prv 18:5
To be partial to the faces of the wicked is not good,
nor to deprive the innocent of justice.

A fool’s lips come into strife,
and his mouth invites beatings.
7פִּֽי ־ כְ֭סִיל מְחִתָּה ־ ל֑וֹ וּ֝שְׂפָתָ֗יו מוֹקֵ֥שׁ נַפְשֽׁוֹ ׃Prv 18:7
A fool’s mouth is his destruction,
and his lips are a snare to his soul.

The words of a gossip are like dainty morsels:
they go down into a person’s innermost parts.
9גַּ֭ם מִתְרַפֶּ֣ה בִמְלַאכְתּ֑וֹ אָ֥ח ה֝֗וּא לְבַ֣עַל מַשְׁחִֽית ׃Prv 18:9
One who is slack in his work
is brother to him who is a master of destruction.

the righteous run to him, and are safe.

The rich man’s wealth is his strong city,
like an unscalable wall in his own imagination.

Before destruction the heart of man is proud,
but before honor is humility.
13מֵשִׁ֣יב דָּ֭בָר בְּטֶ֣רֶם יִשְׁמָ֑ע אִוֶּ֥לֶת הִיא ־ ל֝֗וֹ וּכְלִמָּֽה ׃Prv 18:13
He who gives answer before he hears,
that is folly and shame to him.
14רֽוּחַ ־ אִ֭ישׁ יְכַלְכֵּ֣ל מַחֲלֵ֑הוּ וְר֥וּחַ נְ֝כֵאָ֗ה מִ֣י יִשָּׂאֶֽנָּה ׃Prv 18:14
A man’s spirit will sustain him in sickness,
but a crushed spirit, who can bear?
15לֵ֣ב נָ֭בוֹן יִקְנֶה ־ דָּ֑עַת וְאֹ֥זֶן חֲ֝כָמִ֗ים תְּבַקֶּשׁ ־ דָּֽעַת ׃Prv 18:15
The heart of the discerning gets knowledge.
The ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
16מַתָּ֣ן אָ֭דָם יַרְחִ֣יב ל֑וֹ וְלִפְנֵ֖י גְדֹלִ֣ים יַנְחֶֽנּוּ ׃Prv 18:16
A man’s gift makes room for him,
and brings him before great men.

until another comes and questions him.

The lot settles disputes,
and keeps strong ones apart.

A brother offended is more difficult than a fortified city;
and disputes are like the bars of a castle.

A man’s stomach is filled with the fruit of his mouth.
With the harvest of his lips he is satisfied.

those who love it will eat its fruit.

but the rich answer harshly.

but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
