Proverbs 20:14-24 (Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
14 The buyer says, "Bad, bad," but then goes away and brags. 15 Much gold and many pearls exist, but wise speech is the most precious jewel. 16 Take the garment of the person who secures a loan for a stranger; take his pledge for a foreigner. 17 Stolen bread is sweet, but afterward the mouth is full of gravel. 18 Plans are firmed up by advice; wage wars with good guidance. 19 Gossips reveal secrets; don't associate with those who talk too much. 20 Those who curse their father or mother— their lamp will be snuffed out when it becomes dark. 21 Inheritance gained quickly at first won't bless later on. 22 Don't say, "I'll repay the evildoer!" Wait for the LORD, and he will save you. 23 The LORD detests false weights; deceptive scales aren't right. 24 A person's steps are from the LORD; how then can people understand their path?
