Proverbs 14:18-28 (Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
18 Stupidity is the lot of the naive, but the prudent are crowned with knowledge. 19 Evil people will bow down before the good; wicked people are at the gates of the righteous. 20 Even their neighbors hate the poor, but many love the wealthy. 21 Those who despise their neighbors are sinners, but happy are those who are kind to the needy. 22 Don't those who plan evil go astray? Those who plan good receive loyalty and faithfulness. 23 There is profit in hard work, but mere talk leads to poverty. 24 Wealth is the crown of the wise, and the folly of fools is folly. 25 A truthful witness saves lives, but a deceiver proclaims lies. 26 In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence and refuge for one's children. 27 The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, turning people away from deathtraps. 28 A king's glory is a large population, but a dwindling people is a ruler's ruin.
