Proverbs 18:5-15 (Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
5 Favoring the wicked isn't good; it denies justice to the righteous. 6 The lips of fools make accusations; their mouths elicit beatings. 7 The mouth of fools is their ruin; their lips are a trap for their lives. 8 The words of gossips are like choice snacks; they go down to the inmost parts. 9 Those who are lazy in their work are brothers to thugs. 10 The LORD's name is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and find refuge. 11 The riches of the wealthy are a strong city and like a high wall in their imagination. 12 Pride comes before a disaster, but humility comes before respect. 13 Those who answer before they listen are foolish and disgraceful. 14 The human spirit sustains a sick person, but who can bear a broken spirit? 15 An understanding mind gains knowledge; the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
