Proverbs 20:19-29 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
19 The one who reveals secrets is a constant gossip; avoid someone with a big mouth.a 20 Whoever curses his father or mother- his lamp will go out in deep darkness.b 21 An inheritance gained prematurely will not be blessed ultimately.c 22 Don't say, "I will avenge this evil!" Wait on the Lord, and He will rescue you.d 23 Differing weightse are detestable to the Lord, and dishonest scales are unfair.f 24 A man's steps are determined by the Lord,g so how can anyone understand his own way? 25 It is a trap for anyone to dedicate something rashly and later to reconsider his vows.h 26 A wise king separates out the wicked and drives the threshing wheel over them. 27 A person's breath is the lamp of the Lord, searching the innermost parts.i j 28 Loyalty and faithfulness deliver a king; through loyalty he maintains his throne. 29 The glory of young men is their strength, and the splendor of old men is gray hair.k
