Proverbs 13:9-19 (Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
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 16 The prudent all act intelligently, but fools display their stupidity. 17 Wicked messengers fall into trouble, but a reliable one brings healing. 18 Poverty and shame come to those who don't care about instruction; honor belongs to those who heed correction. 19 A desire fulfilled is pleasant, but fools find deviating from evil disgusting.
