Proverbs 18:2-12 (Common English Bible)

View In My Bible
2 Fools find no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing their opinion. 3 When the wicked arrive, so does contempt; with shame comes insult. 4 The words of a person's mouth are deep waters, a bubbling stream, a fountain of wisdom. 5 Favoring the wicked isn't good; it denies justice to the righteous. 6 The lips of fools make accusations; their mouths elicit beatings. 7 The mouth of fools is their ruin; their lips are a trap for their lives. 8 The words of gossips are like choice snacks; they go down to the inmost parts. 9 Those who are lazy in their work are brothers to thugs. 10 The LORD's name is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and find refuge. 11 The riches of the wealthy are a strong city and like a high wall in their imagination. 12 Pride comes before a disaster, but humility comes before respect.
