Proverbs 14:1-10 (Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
1 A wise woman builds her house, while a foolish woman tears hers down with her own hands. 2 Those who walk with integrity fear the LORD, but those who take a crooked path despise him. 3 Pride sprouts in the mouth of a fool,a but the lips of the wise protect them. 4 When there are no oxen, the stall is clean, but when there is a strong bull, there is abundant produce. 5 A truthful witness doesn't lie, but a false witness spews lies. 6 A mocker searches for wisdom and gets none, but knowledge comes quickly to the intelligent. 7 Stay away from fools, for you won't learn wise speech there. 8 By their wisdom the prudent understand their way, but the stupidity of fools deceives them. 9 Fools mock a compensation offering, but favor is with those who do right. 10 The heart knows its own distress; another person can't share its joy.
