Proverbs 11:1-7 (Good News Translation)

View In My Bible
1 The Lord hates people who use dishonest scales. He is happy with honest weights. 2 People who are proud will soon be disgraced. It is wiser to be modest. 3 If you are good, you are guided by honesty. People who can't be trusted are destroyed by their own dishonesty. 4 Riches will do you no good on the day you face death, but honesty can save your life. 5 Honesty makes a good person's life easier, but the wicked will cause their own downfall. 6 Righteousness rescues those who are honest, but those who can't be trusted are trapped by their own greed. 7 When the wicked die, their hope dies with them. Confidence placed in riches comes to nothing.
