Proverbs 19:18-28 (Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
18 Discipline your children while there is hope, but don't plan to kill them. 19 Angry people must pay the penalty; if you rescue them, then you will have to do it again. 20 Listen to advice and accept instruction, so you might grow wise in the future. 21 Many plans are in a person's mind, but the LORD's purpose will succeed. 22 People long for trustworthiness; it is better to be poor than a liar. 23 The fear of the LORD leads to life; then one rests content, untouched by harm. 24 Lazy people bury their hand in the bowl; they won't even put it to their mouth. 25 Strike someone who scoffs, and a naive person will become clever; correct someone with understanding, and they will gain knowledge. 26 Those who assault their father and drive out their mother are disgraceful children, worthy of reproach. 27 If, my child, you stop listening to discipline, you will wander away from words of knowledge. 28 A worthless witness mocks justice; the wicked mouth gulps down trouble.
