Proverbs 20:12-22 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
12 The hearing ear and the seeing eye- the Lord made them both.a 13 Don't love sleep, or you will become poor; open your eyes, and you'll have enough to eat.b 14 "It's worthless, it's worthless!" the buyer says, but after he is on his way, he gloats. 15 There is gold and a multitude of jewels, but knowledgeable lips are a rare treasure.c 16 Take his garment,d for he has put up security for a stranger; get collateral if it is for foreigners.e 17 Food gained by fraud is sweet to a man, but afterwards his mouth is full of gravel. 18 Finalize plans through counsel, and wage war with sound guidance.f 19 The one who reveals secrets is a constant gossip; avoid someone with a big mouth.g 20 Whoever curses his father or mother- his lamp will go out in deep darkness.h 21 An inheritance gained prematurely will not be blessed ultimately.i 22 Don't say, "I will avenge this evil!" Wait on the Lord, and He will rescue you.j
