Proverbs 10:7-17 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
7 The remembrance of the righteous is a blessing, but the name of the wicked will rot. 8 A wise heart accepts commands, but foolish lips will be destroyed.a 9 The one who lives with integrity lives securely,b but whoever perverts his ways will be found out. 10 A sly wink of the eyec causes grief, and foolish lips will be destroyed.d 11 The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life,e but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.f 12 Hatred stirs up conflicts, but love covers all offenses.g 13 Wisdom is found on the lips of the discerning, but a rod is for the back of the one who lacks sense.h 14 The wise store up knowledge, but the mouth of the fool hastens destruction.i 15 A rich man's wealth is his fortified city;j the poverty of the poor is their destruction. 16 The labor of the righteous leads to life; the activity of the wicked leads to sin. 17 The one who follows instruction is on the path to life, but the one who rejects correction goes astray.k
