Proverbs 20:1-9

20Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler,
   and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.
2 The dread anger of a king is like the growling of a lion;
   anyone who provokes him to anger forfeits life itself.
3 It is honourable to refrain from strife,
   but every fool is quick to quarrel.
4 The lazy person does not plough in season;
   harvest comes, and there is nothing to be found.
5 The purposes in the human mind are like deep water,
   but the intelligent will draw them out.
6 Many proclaim themselves loyal,
   but who can find one worthy of trust?
7 The righteous walk in integrity—
   happy are the children who follow them!
8 A king who sits on the throne of judgement
   winnows all evil with his eyes.
9 Who can say, ‘I have made my heart clean;
   I am pure from my sin’?
