PROVERBS · Chapter 13
13:1 A wise son hears his father's instruction: but a scorner hears
13:2 A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.
13:3 He that keeps his mouth keeps his life: but he that opens wide his lips shall have destruction.
13:4 The soul of the sluggard desires, and has nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
13:5 A righteous man hates lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, and comes to shame.
13:6 Righteousness keeps him that is upright in the way: but wickedness overthrows the sinner.
13:7 There is that makes himself rich, yet has nothing: there is that makes himself poor, yet has great riches.
13:8 The ransom of a man's life are his riches: but the poor hears not rebuke.
13:9 The light of the righteous rejoices: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.
13:10 Only by pride comes contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.
13:11 Wealth got by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathers by labour shall increase.
13:12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick: but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.
13:13 Whoso despises the word shall be destroyed: but he that fears the commandment shall be rewarded.
13:14 The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
13:15 Good understanding gives favour: but the way of transgressors is hard.
13:16 Every prudent man deals with knowledge: but a fool lays open his folly.
13:17 A wicked messenger falls into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health.
13:18 Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuses instruction: but he that regards reproof shall be honoured.
13:19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil.
13:20 He that walks with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
13:21 Evil pursues sinners: but to the righteous good shall be repaid.
13:22 A good man left an inheritance to his children's children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.
13:23 Much food is in the tillage of the poor: but there is that is destroyed for lack of judgment.
13:24 He that spares his rod hates his son: but he that loves him chastens him early.
13:25 The righteous eats to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall lack.
