Proverbs 13

1 A wise son heareth his father’s instruction:
But a scorner heareth not rebuke.
2 A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth:
But the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.
3 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life:
But he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.
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 the 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 repaid.
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.
