Proverbs 24

One chapter of the books of truth left. One chapter of poetry. What will I do for respite? Verses 33-34 with preamble repeat a verse of chapter 6 with slightly differing spelling.

Proverbs 24 Fn Min Max Syll
אַל־תְּ֭קַנֵּא בְּאַנְשֵׁ֣י רָעָ֑ה
וְאַל־תִּ֝תְאָ֗יו לִהְי֥וֹת אִתָּֽם
1 Do not be jealous of evil persons,
and do not desire to be with them.
3e 4B 9
8
כִּי־שֹׁ֭ד יֶהְגֶּ֣ה לִבָּ֑ם
וְ֝עָמָ֗ל שִׂפְתֵיהֶ֥ם תְּדַבֵּֽרְנָה
2 For their heart meditates devastation,
and misery their lips speak.

but a person of knowledge assures power.

וּמָטִ֥ים לַ֝הֶ֗רֶג אִם־תַּחְשֽׂוֹךְ
11 g Deliver those taken to death,
and those moved to slay. Or do you keep back?

כִּֽי־תֹאמַ֗ר הֵן֮ לֹא־יָדַ֪עְנ֫וּ זֶ֥ה
הֲ‍ֽלֹא־תֹ֘כֵ֤ן לִבּ֨וֹת ׀ הֽוּא־יָבִ֗ין וְנֹצֵ֣ר נַ֭פְשְׁךָ ה֣וּא יֵדָ֑ע
וְהֵשִׁ֖יב לְאָדָ֣ם כְּפָעֳלֽוֹ
