Proverbs 131 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 treacherous, violence. 3 He that guardeth his mouth keepeth his soul; destruction shall be to him that openeth wide his lips. 4 A sluggard's soul desireth and hath nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat. 5 A righteous man hateth lying; but the wicked maketh himself odious and cometh to shame. 6 Righteousness preserveth him that is perfect in the way; but wickedness overthroweth the sinner. 7 There is that feigneth himself rich, and hath nothing; there is that maketh himself poor, and hath great wealth. 8 The ransom of a man's life is his riches; but the indigent heareth not rebuke. 9 The light of the righteous rejoiceth; but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out. 10 By pride there only cometh contention; but with the well-advised is wisdom. 11 Wealth gotten by vanity diminisheth; but he that gathereth by manual-labour shall increase it . 12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick; but the desire that cometh to pass is a tree of life. 13 Whoso despiseth the word shall be held by it; but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded. 14 The teaching of the wise man is a fountain of life, to turn away from the snares of death. 15 Good understanding procureth favour; but the way of the treacherous is hard. 16 Every prudent man acteth with knowledge; but the foolish layeth open his folly. 17 A wicked messenger falleth into evil; 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 the foolish to depart from evil. 20 He that walketh with wise men becometh wise; but a companion of the foolish will be depraved. 21 Evil pursueth sinners; but to the righteous good shall be repaid. 22 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children; but the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the righteous man . 23 Much food is in the tillage of the poor; but there is that is lost 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.
