Proverbs 12

12:3 A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the a root of the righteous shall not be moved.

(a) They are so grounded in the favour of God, that their root will prosper continually.
12:6 The words of the wicked [are] to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall b deliver them.
(b) As their conscience is upright, so will they be able to speak for themselves against their accusers.
12:9 [He that is] despised, c and hath a servant, [is] better than he that honoureth himself, and is destitute of bread.
(c) The poor man that is contemned and yet lives of his own travail.
12:10 A righteous [man] d regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked [are] cruel.
(d) Is merciful, even to the very beast who does him service.
12:12 The wicked desireth the e net of evil [men]: but the f root of the righteous yieldeth [fruit].
(e) Continually imagines ways to harm others.
(f) Meaning, their heart within, which is upright, and does good to all.
12:15 The way of a fool [is] g right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth to counsel [is] wise.
(g) He stands in his own conceit, and condemns all others in respect to himself.
12:16 A fool’s wrath is presently known: but h a prudent [man] covereth shame.
(h) Who bridles his affections.
12:18 There is that speaketh like the piercings of i a sword: but the tongue of the wise [is] health.
(i) Which seek nothing more then to provoke others to anger.
12:25 Heaviness in the heart of man weigheth it down: but a k good word maketh it glad.
(k) That is, words of comfort, or a cheerful mind which is declared by his words, rejoices a man, as a covetous mind kills him.
12:26 The righteous l [is] more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.
(l) That is, more liberal in giving.
12:27 The slothful [man] roasteth not that which he m took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man [is] precious.
(m) Although he gets much by unlawful means, yet he will not spend it on himself.
