Proverbs 16:13-23 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
13 Righteous lips are a king's delight, and he loves one who speaks honestly. 14 A king's fury is a messenger of death, but a wise man appeases it.a 15 When a king's face lights up, there is life; his favor is like a cloud with spring rain. 16 Acquire wisdom- how much better it is than gold! And acquire understanding- it is preferable to silver.b 17 The highway of the upright avoids evil; the one who guards his way protects his life.c 18 Pride comes before destruction, and an arrogant spirit before a fall.d 19 Better to be lowly of spirit with the humblee than to divide plunder with the proud.f 20 The one who understands a matter finds success, and the one who trusts in the Lord will be happy.g 21 Anyone with a wise heart is called discerning, and pleasant speechh increases learning.i 22 Insight is a fountain of lifej for its possessor, but folly is the instruction of fools. 23 A wise heart instructs its mouth and increases learning with its speech.k l
