Proverbs 13:5-15 (Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
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. 11 Riches gotten quicklya will dwindle, but those who acquire them gradually become wealthy. 12 Hope delayed makes the heart sick; longing fulfilled is a tree of life. 13 Trouble will come on those who despise a word, but those who respect the commandment will be rewarded. 14 The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, turning a person away from deathtraps. 15 Good insight brings favor, but the way of the faithless is their ruin.b
