Proverbs 14

I thought I would have a respite and do a bit of Proverbs. But I picked a chapter that had another 10 missing verses in my data. So for the second time in a few months, puzzle pieces have been found under the sofa! I had this chapter marked as having only 25 verses and it really has 35 verses.

Proverbs 14 Fn Min Max Syll
חַכְמ֣וֹת נָ֭שִׁים בָּנְתָ֣ה בֵיתָ֑הּ
וְ֝אִוֶּ֗לֶת בְּיָדֶ֥יהָ תֶהֶרְסֶֽנּוּ
1 Wise women. She builds her house,
but foolishness in her hands overthrows it.
3e 4B 8
12
הוֹלֵ֣ךְ בְּ֭יָשְׁרוֹ יְרֵ֣א יְהוָ֑ה
וּנְל֖וֹז דְּרָכָ֣יו בּוֹזֵֽהוּ
2 Walking in its uprightness is one who fears Yahweh,
but the drifter in its ways despises him.
3e 4B 9
8
בְּֽפִי־אֱ֭וִיל חֹ֣טֶר גַּאֲוָ֑ה
וְשִׂפְתֵ֥י חֲ֝כָמִ֗ים תִּשְׁמוּרֵֽם
3 In the mouth of the obstinate, a twig of pride,
but the lips of the shrewd shelter them.
3e 4B 8
9
בְּאֵ֣ין אֲ֭לָפִים אֵב֣וּס בָּ֑ר
וְרָב־תְּ֝בוּא֗וֹת בְּכֹ֣חַ שֽׁוֹר
4 When there are no droves, a manger is purified,
but vast income is in the power of a bull.
3e 4B 8
9
עֵ֣ד אֱ֭מוּנִים לֹ֣א יְכַזֵּ֑ב
וְיָפִ֥יחַ כְּ֝זָבִ֗ים עֵ֣ד שָֽׁקֶר
5 B A witness to faithfulness not does lie,
but a snorter of lies is a false witness.
3e 4B 8
10
בִּקֶּשׁ־לֵ֣ץ חָכְמָ֣ה וָאָ֑יִן
וְדַ֖עַת לְנָב֣וֹן נָקָֽל
6 One who is scornful sought wisdom, and there was none,
but knowledge, to one who discerns, is trifling.
3e 4B 8
8
לֵ֣ךְ מִ֭נֶּגֶד לְאִ֣ישׁ כְּסִ֑יל
וּבַל־יָ֝דַ֗עְתָּ שִׂפְתֵי־דָֽעַת
7 B Walk away before a dullard,
when you do not know the lips of knowledge.
3e 4B 8

חָכְמַ֣ת עָ֭רוּם הָבִ֣ין דַּרְכּ֑וֹ
וְאִוֶּ֖לֶת כְּסִילִ֣ים מִרְמָֽה
8 The wisdom of the crafty is the discernment of his way,
but the foolishness of dullards is from deceit.
3e 4B 8
9
אֱ֭וִלִים יָלִ֣יץ אָשָׁ֑ם
וּבֵ֖ין יְשָׁרִ֣ים רָצֽוֹן

but between the upright is acceptance.

לֵ֗ב י֭וֹדֵעַ מָרַּ֣ת נַפְשׁ֑וֹ
וּ֝בְשִׂמְחָת֗וֹ לֹא־יִתְעָ֥רַב זָֽר
10 ~ A heart knows its provocation,
and in its gladness, a stranger does not intermingle.

9
בֵּ֣ית רְ֭שָׁעִים יִשָּׁמֵ֑ד
וְאֹ֖הֶל יְשָׁרִ֣ים יַפְרִֽיחַ
11 B The house of the wicked will be exterminated,
but the tent of the upright will flourish.

and following it are the ways of death.

and and the aftermath of its gladness is sadness.

מִדְּרָכָ֣יו יִ֭שְׂבַּע ס֣וּג לֵ֑ב
וּ֝מֵעָלָ֗יו אִ֣ישׁ טֽוֹב

but from itself, a good person.

פֶּ֭תִי יַאֲמִ֣ין לְכָל־דָּבָ֑ר

but craftiness discerns its steps.

but a dullard is furious and trusting.

צְדָקָ֥ה תְרֽוֹמֵֽם־גּ֑וֹי
וְחֶ֖סֶד לְאֻמִּ֣ים חַטָּֽאת

רְֽצוֹן־מֶ֭לֶךְ לְעֶ֣בֶד מַשְׂכִּ֑יל
וְ֝עֶבְרָת֗וֹ תִּהְיֶ֥ה מֵבִֽישׁ

but its fury, it will be, that causes shame.

Footnote:
It is a slight chore to my memory to figure out what to do to add missing words, but the fixing of these 10 missing verses was less than 1/2 an hour's work. All the processes by which I built the data structure still work as expected. For my own sake, this is the process:
  1. fix the number of chapters in the chapters table.
  2. use an algorithm called 'initial keyword of verse' to insert a word into the keyword table.
  3. use the web service interface to tanach.us to get the raw data.
  4. use an algorithm called 'adjust oleveyored' to insert carriage returns based on the accents and to remove unwanted characters and annotations in the text.
  5. use an algorithm called 'keywords from leaf' to read the Hebrew and create words for the word table. This also guesses the root from the letter patterns. (Every one of the 70 new words appears to have been guessed correctly.)
  6. use the music interface to produce the music XML, then export to PDF and MIDI files.
  7. place the music files in the shared Google drive and One-drive locations.
  8. rebuild the table of musical statistics.
Of course I still need to find all these things on my computers. I use a set of forms and some direct interaction with the data through SQL developer on an Oracle XE instance as well as the music program Musescore. In principle, all this could be interactive online, but that would require an infusion of capital outside the many hours of my time.
