Proverbs 24:23-34 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
23 These also are sayings of the wise: Partiality in judging is not good. 24 Whoever says to the wicked, "You are innocent," will be cursed by peoples, abhorred by nations; 25 but those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, and a good blessing will come upon them. 26 One who gives an honest answer gives a kiss on the lips. 27 Prepare your work outside, get everything ready for you in the field; and after that build your house. 28 Do not be a witness against your neighbor without cause, and do not deceive with your lips. 29 Do not say, "I will do to others as they have done to me; I will pay them back for what they have done." 30 I passed by the field of one who was lazy, by the vineyard of a stupid person; 31 and see, it was all overgrown with thorns; the ground was covered with nettles, and its stone wall was broken down. 32 Then I saw and considered it; I looked and received instruction. 33 A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, 34 and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want, like an armed warrior.
