“It is an honour for a man to cease from strife: but euery foole will be medling.”
King James Version (KJV)
1. Wine is a mocker, strong drinke is raging: and whosoeuer is deceiued thereby, is not wise. 2. The feare of a king, is as the roaring of a Lion: who so prouoketh him to anger, sinneth against his owne soule. 3. It is an honour for a man to cease from strife: but euery foole will be medling. 4. The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he begge in haruest, and haue nothing. 5. Counsell in the heart of man is like deepe water: but a man of vnderstanding will draw it out. 6. Most men will proclaime euery one his owne goodnes: but a faithfull man who can finde?
