THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Proverbs (Author Solomon)

11:22As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.

12:4A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.

14:1Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.

15:17Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.

18:19A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.

19:13A foolish son is the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.

21:9It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house.

21:19It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.

25:24It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman and in a wide house.

27:15A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike.

27:16Whosoever hideth her hideth the wind, and the ointment of his right hand, which bewrayeth itself.

30:21For three things the earth is disquieted, and for four which it cannot bear:

30:23For an odious woman when she is married; and an handmaid that is heir to her mistress.
