Proverbs 18:2-12 (The Darby Translation)

View In My Bible
2 A fool hath no delight in understanding, but only that his heart may reveal itself. 3 When the wicked cometh, there cometh also contempt, and with ignominy reproach. 4 The words of a man's mouth are deep waters, [and] the fountain of wisdom is a gushing a brook. 5 It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to wrong the righteous in judgment. 6 A fool's lips enter into b contention, and his mouth calleth for stripes. 7 A fool's mouth is destruction to him, and his lips are a snare to his soul. 8 The words of a talebearer are as dainty morsels, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly. c 9 He also who is indolent in his work is brother of the destroyer. 10 The name of Jehovah is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. d 11 The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as a high wall in his own imagination. 12 Before destruction the heart of man is haughty; and before honour [goeth] humility.
