Proverbs 18:2-12 (Good News Translation)

View In My Bible
2 A fool does not care whether he understands a thing or not; all he wants to do is show how smart he is. 3 Sin and shame go together. Lose your honor, and you will get scorn in its place. 4 A person's words can be a source of wisdom, deep as the ocean, fresh as a flowing stream. 5 It is not right to favor the guilty and keep the innocent from receiving justice. 6 When some fool starts an argument, he is asking for a beating. 7 When a fool speaks, he is ruining himself; he gets caught in the trap of his own words. 8 Gossip is so tasty - how we love to swallow it! 9 A lazy person is as bad as someone who is destructive. 10 The Lord is like a strong tower, where the righteous can go and be safe. 11 Rich people, however, imagine that their wealth protects them like high, strong walls around a city. 12 No one is respected unless he is humble; arrogant people are on the way to ruin.
