Proverbs 14:22-32 (The Darby Translation)

View In My Bible
22 Do they not err that devise a evil? but loving-kindness and truth are for those that devise good. 23 In all labour there is profit; but the talk of the lips [tendeth] only to want. 24 The crown of the wise is their riches; the folly of the foolish is folly. 25 A true witness delivereth souls; but deceit uttereth lies. 26 In the fear of Jehovah is strong confidence, and his children shall have a place of refuge. 27 The fear of Jehovah is a fountain of life, to turn away from the snares of death. 28 In the multitude of people is the king's glory; but in the lack of people is the ruin of a prince. b 29 He that is slow to anger is of great understanding; but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly. 30 A sound c heart is the life of the flesh; but envy the rottenness of the bones. 31 He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker; but he that honoureth Him is gracious to the needy. 32 The wicked is driven away by his evil-doing; d but the righteous trusteth, e [even] in his death.
