“Hope deferred maketh the heart sicke: but when the desire commeth, it is a tree of life.”
King James Version (KJV)
9. The light of the righteous reioyceth: but the lampe of the wicked shall be put out. 10. Onely by pride commeth contention: but with the well aduised is wisedome. 11. Wealth gotten by vanitie shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour, shall increase. 12. Hope deferred maketh the heart sicke: but when the desire commeth, it is a tree of life. 13. Whoso despiseth the word, shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commaundement, shall be rewarded. 14. The lawe of the wise is a fountaine of life, to depart from the snares of death. 15. Good vnderstanding giueth fauour: but the way of transgressours is hard.
