On account of winter, a slothful man | will not |
plough; Therefore shall he seek in | harvest, | but find |
nothing. The slothful man saith, "A lion is l in the streets In the open places, I shall be slain.' The desire of the slothful , killeth him; For his hands refuse to i labour.
Go to the ant, thou sluggard ;
anything; There is that maketh limself | poor, yet I hath,
great / wealth. The blessing of the Lord, that maketh rich; And he | addeth no sorrow | with it. gocd rame is to be chosen rather than great |
riches; And loving favour rather than silver and gold. The rich and the poor | meet 10 | gether ; The Lord is the maker / of them all. The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he
cat | much or I little ; But the abundance if the rich will not suffer hime
10 | sleep.
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life;
HE that hath pity upon the poor, lendeth un | to
the Lord; And that which he hath given | will he | pay him al
gain. He that stoppeth his ears at the | cry of the poor, He also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.
Deliver those that are drawn unto death, and those
that are hurried on 1 to be | slain : If thou forbear, because thou sayest, ‘Lo, | we know |
not this | man;' Shall not he who ponderetb hearts discern! and he
that keepeth thy soul, doth | he not | know it? And shall he not render to every man ac / cording |
to his / works? When thine enemy falleth, rejoice | not; Nor, when he stumbleth, let thy heart ex ult. Say not, “As he hath done to me, so will I do to 1
him, I will render to him ac / cording | to his work.'
Better is a dinner of herbs, if | love be | there,
to | eat; And if he be thirsty, I give him water to drink.
For brands of fire thou wilt heap up / on hiš | head,
PROVERBS. ROMANS XII, 14,17,21.
WHO hath woe? / who hath | sorrow?
They that tarry long at the wine;
At the last it biteth like a serpent,
When I shall have a | waked,
They shall rejoice and sleep a perpetual sleep
PROVERBS. JEREMIAH. LI..39.
Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging;
drink. Woe unto him that giveth his neighbour | drink ; That puttest thy bottle to him, and mahest him
Shew not thy valiant nese in wine,
nit be | rich; And he that c.ntemneth small things shall ! full by |
little and little.
It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to | drink , wine, Nor anything whereby thy brother is caused to
sin. For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink, But righteousness, and peace, and I joy in tủie |
Holy | Spirit. Be | not de ceived : No drunkard shall inherit she | king | dom of God, Therefore be not drunk with wine, where | in is ex |
cess; But be filled | with the Spirit.
CAST thy breau up I on the waters ;
this or that, Or whether they shall | both be a I like good Truly the | light is I sweet, And pleasant is it for the eyes to be hold the
sun; If a man live many yeąrs, in all of them let him
rejoice ; Yet let him remember the days of darkness, fu
they ! shall be many.
