Proverbs 121 He who loveth correction loveth knowledge; But he who hateth rebuke remaineth stupid. 2 The good man obtaineth favor from the LORD; But the man of wicked devices he condemneth. 3 A man shall not be established by wickedness; But the root of the righteous shall not be moved. 4 A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband; But she who causeth shame is as rottenness in his bones. 5 The purposes of the righteous are just; The designs of the wicked are deceitful. 6 The words of the wicked lie in wait for men’s blood; But the mouth of the upright delivereth them. 7 The wicked are overthrown, and are no more; But the house of the righteous shall stand. 8 A man will be commended according to his wisdom; But he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised. 9 Better is he that demeaneth himself, and hath a servant, Than he that exalteth himself, and hath no bread. 10 The righteous man careth for the life of his beast; But the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. 11 He who tilleth his own land shall be satisfied with bread; But he who followeth worthless persons is void of understanding. 12 The wicked man longeth after the prey of evil-doers; But the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit. 13 In the transgression of the lips is a dangerous snare; But the righteous man shall escape from trouble. 14 By the fruit of a man’s mouth he shall be filled with good, And the recompense of a man’s hands shall be rendered unto him. 15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes; But he that hearkeneth to counsel is wise. 16 A fool’s wrath is instantly known; But he that hideth insult is wise. 17 He that speaketh truth testifieth what is right; But a false witness, deceit. 18 There is who babbleth like the piercing of a sword; But the tongue of the wise is health. 19 The lip of truth shall be established for ever; But the tongue of falsehood, but for a moment. 20 Deceit is in the heart of those who contrive evil; But to the counsellors of peace shall be joy. 21 No evil shall happen to the righteous; But the wicked shall be filled with calamity. 22 False lips are the abomination of the LORD; But they who deal truly are his delight. 23 A prudent man concealeth his knowledge; Bur the heart of fools proclaimeth their foolishness. 24 The hand of the diligent shall bear rule; But the slothful shall be under tribute. 25 Anxiety in the heart of a man boweth it down; But a kind word maketh it glad. 26 The righteous showeth the way to his neighbor; But the way of the wicked leadeth them astray. 27 The slothful man shall not roast his game; But a precious treasure to any man is he that is diligent. 28 In the path of righteousness is life, And in her pathway there is no death.
