Proverbs 14:7-17 (Good News Translation w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
7 Stay away from foolish people; they have nothing to teach you. 8 Why is a clever person wise? Because he knows what to do. Why is a stupid person foolish? Because he only thinks he knows. 9 Foolish people don't care if they sin, but good people want to be forgiven. a 10 Your joy is your own; your bitterness is your own. No one can share them with you. 11 A good person's house will still be standing after an evildoer's house has been destroyed. 12 What you think is the right road may lead to death. 1 13 Laughter may hide sadness. When happiness is gone, sorrow is always there. 14 Bad people will get what they deserve. Good people will be rewarded for their deeds. b 15 A fool will believe anything; smart people watch their step. 16 Sensible people are careful to stay out of trouble, but stupid people are careless and act too quickly. 17 People with a hot temper do foolish things; wiser people remain calm. c
