Proverbs 9:7-12 (Common English Bible)

View In My Bible

Wise advice

7 Whoever instructs the cynic gets insulted; whoever corrects the wicked gets hurt. 8 Don't correct the impudent, or they will hate you; correct the wise, and they will love you. 9 Teach the wise, and they will become wiser; inform the righteous, and their learning will increase. 10 The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the LORD; the knowledge of the holy one is understanding. 11 Through me your days will be many; years will be added to your life. 12 If you are wise, it is to your benefit; if you are cynical, you will bear it all alone.
