Proverbs 24:23-34 (Revised Standard Version w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
23 These also are sayings of the wise. Partiality in judging is not good. 24 He who 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 be upon them. 26 He who gives a right answer kisses the lips. 27 Prepare your work outside, get everything ready for you in the field; and after that build your house. 28 Be not a witness against your neighbor without cause, and do not deceive with your lips. 29 Do not say, "I will do to him as he has done to me; I will pay the man back for what he has done." 30 I passed by the field of a sluggard, by the vineyard of a man without sense; 31 and lo, 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 man.
