Proverbs 17:12-22 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
12 Better for a man to meet a bear robbed of her cubs than a fool in his foolishness. 13 If anyone returns evil for good, evil will never depart from his house. 14 To start a conflict is to release a flood; stop the dispute before it breaks out.a 15 Acquitting the guilty and condemning the just- both are detestable to the Lord.b 16 Why does a fool have money in his hand with no intention of buying wisdom?c 17 A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a difficult time.d 18 One without sense enters an agreemente and puts up security for his friend.f 19 One who loves to offend loves strife; one who builds a high threshold invites injury.g 20 One with a twisted mind will not succeed, and one with deceitful speech will fall into ruin.h 21 A man fathers a fool to his own sorrow; the father of a fool has no joy.i 22 A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.j
