Proverbs of Solomon

1 The proverbs of Solomon: A wise child makes a father glad, but a foolish child brings sorrow to his mother. 2 The treasure of the wicked won't profit them, but righteousness rescues people from death. 3 The LORD doesn't let the righteous starve, but he rejects the desires of the wicked. 4 Laziness brings poverty; hard work makes one rich. 5 A wise son harvests in the summer; a disgraceful son sleeps right through the harvest. 6 Blessings cover the head of the righteous, but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence. 7 The memory of the righteous is a blessing, but the name of the wicked rots. 8 The skilled mind accepts commands, but a foolish talker is ruined.
