1 These are also parables of Solomon, which the [a]men of Hezekiah King of Judah [b]copied out.

2 The glory of God is to [c]conceal a thing secret: but the [d]King’s honor is to search out a thing.

3 The heavens in height, and the earth in deepness: and the [e]king’s heart can no man search out.

4 Take the [f]dross from the silver, and there shall proceed a vessel for the finer.

5 Take [g]away the wicked from the King, and his throne shall be established in righteousness.

6 Boast not thyself before the King, and stand not in the place of great men.

7 For it is better, that it be said unto thee, Come up hither, than thou to be put lower in the presence of the Prince whom thine eyes have seen.
