40 You will be over my house, and all my people will obey your commands. Only with regard to the throne will I be greater than you.
The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Version. (Nashville: Holman Bible Publishers, 2009), Genesis 41:40.
1 I will exalt You, LORD, because You have lifted me up and have not allowed my enemies to triumph over me.
2 LORD my God, I cried to You for help, and You healed me.
3 LORD, You brought me up from Sheol; You spared me from among those going down to the Pit.
4 Sing to Yahweh, you His faithful ones, and praise His holy name.
5 For His anger lasts only a moment, but His favor, a lifetime.
Weeping may spend the night, but there is joy in the morning.
6 When I was secure, I said, “I will never be shaken.”
7 LORD, when You showed Your favor, You made me stand like a strong mountain; when You hid Your face, I was terrified.
8 LORD, I called to You; I sought favor from my Lord:
9 “What gain is there in my death, if I go down to the Pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it proclaim Your truth?
10 LORD, listen and be gracious to me; LORD, be my helper.”
11 You turned my lament into dancing; You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
12 so that I can sing to You and not be silent. LORD my God, I will praise You forever.

4 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: But the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
5 A righteous man hateth lying: But a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame.
6 Righteousness keepeth him that is upright in the way: But wickedness overthroweth the sinner.
7 There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: There is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.
8 The ransom of a man’s life are his riches: But the poor heareth not rebuke.
9 The light of the righteous rejoiceth: But the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.
10 Only by pride cometh contention: But with the well advised is wisdom.
11 Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: But he that gathereth by labour shall increase.
12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: But when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
13 Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: But he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.
14 The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from vthe snares of death.
15 Good understanding giveth favour: But the way of transgressors is hard.
16 Every prudent man dealeth with knowledge: But a fool layeth open his folly.
17 A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: But a faithful ambassador is health.
18 Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: But he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.
19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: But it is abomination to fools to depart from evil.
20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: But a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
21 Evil pursueth sinners: But to the righteous good shall be repayed.
22 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: And the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.
23 Much food is in the tillage of the poor: But there is that is destroyed for want of judgment.
24 He that spareth his rod hateth his son: But he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.
25 The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: But the belly of the wicked shall want.
