Proverbs 17:13-23 (Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
13 Evil will never depart from the house of those who return evil for good. 14 The start of a quarrel is like letting out water, so drop the dispute before it breaks out. 15 Judging the righteous wicked and the wicked righteous— the LORD detests both of these. 16 Why should a fool have money to pay for wisdom? He has no mind. 17 Friends love all the time, and kinsfolk are born for times of trouble. 18 One with no sense shakes hands on a deal, securing a loan for a friend. 19 Those who love an offense love a quarrel; those who build a high doorway invite a collapse. 20 Those with crooked hearts won't prosper, and those with twisted tongues will fall into trouble. 21 Having a fool for a son brings grief; there's no joy for a scoundrel's father. 22 A joyful heart helps healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones. 23 The wicked take secret bribes to twist the way of justice.
