Bible
 
  A friend loveth at all times.  1
  A good man shall be satisfied from himself.  2
  A merciful man is merciful to his beast.  3
  A merry heart doeth good like a medicine; but a broken spirit drieth the bones.  4
  A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast, but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.  5
  A still, small voice.  6
  A threefold cord is not quickly broken.  7
  A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.  8
  A word spoken in due season, how good is it?  9
  A wounded spirit who can bear?  10
  Anger resteth in the bosom of fools.  11
  Art not thou a man?  12
  As the man is, so is his strength.  13
  As thy days, so shall thy strength be.  14
  As water spilt upon the ground, which cannot be gathered up again.  15
  Ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein.  16
  Be not righteous overmuch.  17
  Be strong, and quit yourselves like men.  18
  Be sure your sin will find you out.  19
  Before honour is humility.  20
 
 
  Better to get wisdom than gold.  21
  Blessed are they that hear the Word of God, and keep it.  22
  Blessed is he that considereth the poor.  23
  Blessings are upon the head of the just.  24
  Bring down my grey hairs with sorrow to the grave.  25
  Buy the truth, and sell it not.  26
  By pride cometh contention.  27
  Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots?  28
  Cast thy bread upon the waters, for thou shalt find it after many days.  29
  Darkness which may be felt.  30
  Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.  31
  Death and life are in the power of the tongue.  32
  Declaring the end from the beginning, and from the ancient times the things that are not yet done.  33
  Deep calleth unto deep.  34
  Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.  35
  Drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.  36
  Dust thou art, and unto dust thou shalt return.  37
  Establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.  38
  Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise.  39
  Every fool will be meddling.  40
  Every man shall kiss his lips that giveth a right answer.  41
  Every one of us shall give account of himself to God.  42
  Every wise woman buildeth her house, but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.  43
  Evil men understand not judgment, but they that seek the Lord understand all things.  44
  Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it; except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh in vain.  45
  Faithful are the wounds of a friend.  46
  Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.  47
  Fear God and keep his commandments; for this is the whole duty of man.  48
  Fearfully and wonderfully made.  49
  Fools make a mock at sin.  50
  For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again.  51
  For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.  52
  Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious at the wicked; for there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out.  53
  Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.  54
  God created man in his own image.  55
  God is great, and we know Him not; neither can the number of His years be searched out.  56
  God is greater than man.  57
  God is in heaven, and thou upon earth; therefore let thy words be few.  58
  God is in the generation of the righteous.  59
  God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath He said it, and shall He not do it? or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?  60
  God made man upright, but they have sought out many inventions.  61
  God said, Let there be light; and there was light.  62
  Great men are not always wise.  63
  Grind the faces of the poor.  64
  He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.  65
  He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand; but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.  66
  He giveth His beloved sleep.  67
  He judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well with him: was not this to know me? saith the Lord.  68
  He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.  69
  He that believeth shall not make haste.  70
  He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.  71
  He that hateth gifts shall live.  72
  He that hath knowledge spareth his words.  73
  He that hath mercy on the poor, happy is he.  74
  He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down and without walls.  75
  He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth to the Lord.  76
  He that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.  77
  He that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.  78
  He that is ready to slip is as a lamp despised in the thought of him that is at ease.  79
  He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit, than he that taketh a city.  80
  He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding.  81
  He that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.  82
  He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man.  83
  He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase.  84
  He that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.  85
  He that meddleth with strife belonging not to him is like one that taketh a dog by the ears.  86
  He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.  87
  He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.  88
  He that ruleth among men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.  89
  He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread.  90
  He that walketh uprightly walks surely.  91
  He that walketh with wise men shall be wise; but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.  92
  He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow.  93
  Hell and destruction are never full, so the eyes of men are never satisfied.  94
  Her sun is gone down while it was yet day.  95
  Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further; and here shall thy proud waves be stayed.  96
  Hope deferred maketh the heart sick.  97
  How forcible are right words!  98
  How long halt ye between two opinions?  99
  How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!  100
  If I ascend up into heaven. Thou art there; if I make my bed in hell, behold Thou art there; if I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there shall Thy hand lead me, and Thy right hand shall hold me.  101
  If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted?  102
  If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.  103
  If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?  104
  If thou seest the oppression of the poor,… marvel not at the matter: for He that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they.  105
  In much wisdom is much grief, and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.  106
  In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.  107
  In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.  108
  In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin.  109
  In the place where the tree falleth, there it shall lie.  110
  In the sweat of thy brow shalt thou eat thy bread.  111
  In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death.  112
  Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.  113
  Is there evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done it?  114
  It is an honour for a man to cease from strife.  115
  It is as sport to a fool to do mischief.  116
  It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop than with a brawling woman in a wide house.  117
  It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting.  118
  It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise than for a man to hear the song of fools.  119
  It is naught, it is naught, saith the buyer; but when he is gone his way, then he boasteth.  120
  It is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.  121
  Jealousy is cruel as the grave; the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.  122
  Jealousy is the rage of a man.  123
  Jeshurun waxed fat and kicked.  124
  Judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off; for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.  125
  Judgments are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the back of fools.  126
  Just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.  127
  Justice and judgment are the habitation of God’s throne.  128
  Keep my judgments and do them.  129
  Keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.  130
  Keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother.  131
  Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear than to give the sacrifice of fools.  132
  Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.  133
  Knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth.  134
  Lend, hoping for nothing again.  135
  Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.  136
  Let not him that girdeth on his harness boast himself as he that putteth it off.  137
  Let not mercy and truth forsake thee.  138
  Let not thine heart be hasty to utter anything before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth; therefore let thy words be few.  139
  Let thine eyes look right on.  140
  Let thy words be few.  141
  Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.  142
  Love is strong as death. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it.  143
  Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty.  144
  Lying lips are an abomination unto the Lord.  145
  Man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.  146
  Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.  147
  Man, that is born of a woman, is of few days, and full of trouble.  148
  Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.  149
  Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it.  150
  Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.  151
  Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?  152
  Much food is in the tillage of the poor.  153
  Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord.  154
  Of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.  155
  One sinner destroyeth much good.  156
  Only by pride cometh contention; but with the well-advised is wisdom.  157
  Pleasant words are as an honeycomb; sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.  158
  Power belongeth unto God.  159
  Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.  160
  Prisoners of hope.  161
  Put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite.  162
  Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men; for better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen.  163
  Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth, and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes; but know thou that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.  164
  Remember now thy creator in the days of thy youth.  165
  Remove not the ancient land-mark.  166
  Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts.  167
  Riches profit not in the day of wrath.  168
  Righteousness exalteth a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people.  169
  Righteousness keepeth him that is upright in the way.  170
  Rise up before the hoary head, and honour the face of the old man.  171
  Rob not the poor, because he is poor.  172
  Say not, I will do so to him as he hath done to me; I will render to the man according to his work.  173
  Seeing the root of the matter is found in me.  174
  Seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.  175
  Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near.  176
  Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.  177
  Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? there is more hope of a fool than of him.  178
  Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.  179
  Shall horses run upon the rock? Will one plough there with oxen?  180
  Shall we receive good at the hands of the Lord, and shall we not receive evil?  181
  She (Wisdom) is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.  182
  She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.  183
  So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.  184
  Sorrow is better than laughter; for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.  185
  Speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward.  186
  Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.  187
  Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein.  188
  Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.  189
  Surety men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie; to be laid in the balance they are altogether lighter than vanity.  190
  Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her, for she is thy life.  191
  Tell it not in Gath, publish it not in the streets of Askelon.  192
  That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been.  193
  That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.  194
  That which is in the midst of fools is made known.  195
  The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways.  196
  The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water: therefore leave off contention before it be meddled with.  197
  The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.  198
  The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul.  199
  The desire of a man is his kindness: and a poor man is better than a liar.  200
  The desire of the slothful killeth him; for his hands refuse to labour.  201
  The destruction of the poor is their poverty.  202
  The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.  203
  The dove found no rest for the sole of her foot.  204
  The effect of righteousness (shall be) quietness and assurance for ever.  205
  The expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.  206
  The eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.  207
  The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it.  208
  The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.  209
  The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.  210
  The fear of the Lord is the fountain of life.  211
  The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.  212
  The fear of the Lord tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied.  213
  The full soul loatheth a honeycomb; but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.  214
  The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.  215
  The gift blindeth the wise and perverteth the words of the righteous.  216
  The glory of children are their fathers.  217
  The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head.  218
  The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?  219
  The heart knoweth his own bitterness; and a stranger doth not intermeddle with his joy.  220
  The heart of the righteous studieth to answer; but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.  221
  The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth.  222
  The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork.  223
  The highway of the upright is to depart from evil.  224
  The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness.  225
  The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the Lord.  226
  The imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth.  227
  The inspiration of the Almighty giveth man understanding.  228
  The integrity of the upright shall guide them.  229
  The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.  230
  The king’s favour is toward a wise servant.  231
  The king’s wrath is as the roaring of a lion; but his favour is as dew upon the grass.  232
  The lamp of the wicked shall be put out.  233
  The law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life.  234
  The law of the wise is a fountain of life.  235
  The liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.  236
  The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.  237
  The lips of the righteous feed many; but fools die for want of wisdom.  238
  The little that a just man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.  239
  The Lord gave, and the Lord taketh away; blessed be the name of the Lord.  240
  The Lord is a buckler to all that trust in him.  241
  The Lord is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.  242
  The Lord will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked.  243
  The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the Lord.  244
  The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.  245
  The memory of the just is blessed.  246
  The morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy.  247
  The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.  248
  The north wind driveth away rain: so doth an angry countenance a backbiting tongue.  249
  The path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.  250
  The poor is hated even of his own neighbour.  251
  The preparations of the heart in man and the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.  252
  The price of wisdom is above rubies.  253
  The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong.  254
  The ransom of a man’s life are his riches.  255
  The rich and poor meet together: the Lord is the maker of them all.  256
  The rich man’s wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit.  257
  The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.  258
  The righteous hath hope in his death.  259
  The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them.  260
  The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination.  261
  The secret things belong unto the Lord.  262
  The simple believeth every word.  263
  The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eat little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleep.  264
  The sluggard is wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render a reason.  265
  The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings’ palaces.  266
  The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?  267
  The stone which the builders refused has become the head of the corner.  268
  The substance of a diligent man is precious.  269
  The sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.  270
  The tabernacle of the upright shall flourish.  271
  The tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.  272
  The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done.  273
  The thought of foolishness is sin.  274
  The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want.  275
  The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord.  276
  The throne is established by righteousness.  277
  The tongue of the just is as choice silver.  278
  The upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.  279
  The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the Lord.  280
  The wise in heart shall be called prudent.  281
  The Word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.  282
  The words of a man’s mouth are as deep waters, and the well-spring of wisdom as a flowing brook.  283
  The words of a tale-bearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.  284
  The work of righteousness shall be peace.  285
  Their strength is to sit still.  286
  There is a time there for every purpose and for every work.  287
  There is a time wherein one man ruleth over another to his own hurt.  288
  There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.  289
  There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war.  290
  There is no new thing under the sun.  291
  There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the Lord.  292
  There is nothing new under the sun.  293
  There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing; there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.  294
  There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth: and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.  295
  There remaineth a rest to the people of God.  296
  There shall no evil happen to the just.  297
  There the wicked case from troubling, and there the weary be at rest.  298
  There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built bulwarks against it. Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city, yet no man remembered that same poor man.  299
  They that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness, as the stars for ever and ever.  300
  They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.  301
  They that plough iniquity and sow wickedness reap the same.  302
  They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.  303
  They that sow the wind shall reap the whirlwind.  304
  Thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.  305
  Thine own friend, and thy father’s friend, forsake not; neither go into thy brother’s house in the day of thy calamity: for better is a neighbour that is near than a brother far off.  306
  Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn.  307
  Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him.  308
  Though He slay me, I shall yet trust in Him.  309
  Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established; and by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.  310
  Thy love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women.  311
  Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power.  312
  To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.  313
  To everything there is a season.  314
  Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out.  315
  Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old he will not depart from it.  316
  Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, but justice delivers from death.  317
  Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.  318
  Trust in the Lord, and do good, so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.  319
  Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labour.  320
  Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it.  321
  Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel.  322
  Vain is the help of man.  323
  Vain man would be wise, though man be born like a wild ass’s colt.  324
  Vengeance belongeth unto me; I will recompense, saith the Lord.  325
  Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation.  326
  Watchman, what of the night?  327
  We are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow.  328
  We must needs die, and are as water spilt on the ground which cannot be gathered up again.  329
  We will obey the voice of the Lord our God, that it may be well with us.  330
  Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished; but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.  331
  Wealth maketh many friends, but the poor is separated from his neighbour.  332
  Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.  333
  What doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?  334
  Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might.  335
  When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.  336
  When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.  337
  When pride cometh, then cometh shame; but with the lowly is wisdom.  338
  When thy judgments are in the earth the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.  339
  Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellers there is safety.  340
  Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no tale-bearer, the strife ceaseth.  341
  Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil, all the days of her life. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed.  342
  Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?  343
  Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain.  344
  Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness.  345
  Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.  346
  Whoso findeth me (Wisdom) findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.  347
  Whoso keepeth the fig-tree shall eat the fruit thereof; so he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured.  348
  Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker; and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.  349
  Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.  350
  Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression, the same is the companion of a destroyer.  351
  Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.  352
  Whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.  353
  Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.  354
  Wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times.  355
  Wisdom excelleth folly, as far as light excelleth darkness.  356
  Wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it.  357
  Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.  358
  Wisdom is too high for a fool.  359
  Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding.  360
  Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour’s house; lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee.  361
  Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.  362
  Woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.  363
