Proverbs 18:2-12 (English Standard Version)

View In My Bible
2 A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only 1in expressing his opinion. 3 When wickedness comes, contempt comes also, and with dishonor comes disgrace. 4 The words of a man's mouth are 2deep waters; the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook. 5 It is not good to 3be partial toa the wicked or to 4deprive the righteous of justice. 6 A fool's lips walk into a fight, and his mouth invites 5a beating. 7 6A fool's mouth is his ruin, and his lips are a snare to his soul. 8 7The words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels; they go down into 8the inner parts of the body. 9 Whoever is slack in his work is a 9brother to him who destroys. 10 10The name of the LORD is 11a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and 12is safe. 11 13A rich man's wealth is his strong city, and like a high wall in his imagination. 12 14Before destruction a man's heart is haughty, but 15humility comes before honor.
