New King James Version

6. For by wise counsel you will wage your own war, And in a multitude of counselors there is safety.
12. If you say, "Surely we did not know this," Does not He who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps your soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?
14. So shall the knowledge of wisdom be to your soul; If you have found it, there is a prospect, And your hope will not be cut off.
15. Do not lie in wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous; Do not plunder his resting place;
24. He who says to the wicked, "You are righteous," Him the people will curse; Nations will abhor him.
27. Prepare your outside work, Make it fit for yourself in the field; And afterward build your house.
29. Do not say, "I will do to him just as he has done to me; I will render to the man according to his work."
31. And there it was, all overgrown with thorns; Its surface was covered with nettles; Its stone wall was broken down.
