ContextFurther Sayings of the Wise
23These things also belong to the wise. It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment. 24He that said to the wicked, You are righteous; him shall the people curse, nations shall abhor him: 25But to them that rebuke him shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come on them. 26Every man shall kiss his lips that gives a right answer. 27Prepare your work without, and make it fit for yourself in the field; and afterwards build your house. 28Be not a witness against your neighbor without cause; and deceive not with your lips. 29Say not, I will do so to him as he has done to me: I will render to the man according to his work. 30I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding; 31And, see, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down. 32Then I saw, and considered it well: I looked on it, and received instruction. 33Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: 34So shall your poverty come as one that travels; and your want as an armed man.
