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 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 lothsome, 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 [is] his riches: but the poor heareth not rebuke. 9 The light of the righteous rejoiceth: but the lamp of the wicked shall be extinguished. 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 labor shall increase. 12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but [when] the desire cometh, [it is] a tree of life. 13 Whoever 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 favor: 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 embassador [is] health. 18 Poverty and shame [shall be to] him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honored. 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.
