Proverbs 13:1-10 (Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
1 A wise son listens toa the discipline of his father, but a mocker doesn't listen to correction. 2 People eat well from the fruit of their words, but the treacherous have an appetite only for violence. 3 People who watch their mouths guard their lives, but those who open their lips are ruined. 4 The lazy have strong desires but receive nothing; the appetite of the diligent is satisfied. 5 The righteous hate false words, but the wicked create disgust and scorn. 6 Righteousness guards the innocent on the path, but wickedness misleads sinners. 7 Some pretend to be rich but have nothing, while others pretend to be poor, but have great riches. 8 Wealth can ransom a person's life, but the poor don't even receive threats. 9 The light of the righteous rejoices, but the lamp of the wicked goes out. 10 The empty-headed cause conflict out of pride; those who take advice are wise.
