Proverbs 18:2-12 (GOD'S WORD Translation)

View In My Bible
2 A fool does not find joy in understanding but only in expressing his own opinion. 3 When wickedness comes, contempt also comes, and insult comes along with disgrace. 4 The words of a person's mouth are like deep waters. The fountain of wisdom is an overflowing stream. 5 It is not good to be partial toward a wicked person, thereby depriving an innocent person of justice. 6 By talking, a fool gets into an argument, and his mouth invites a beating. 7 A fool's mouth is his ruin. His lips are a trap to his soul. 8 The words of a gossip are swallowed greedily, and they go down into a person's innermost being. 9 Whoever is lazy in his work is related to a vandal. 10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower. A righteous person runs to it and is safe. 11 A rich person's wealth is his strong city and is like a high wall in his imagination. 12 Before destruction a person's heart is arrogant, but humility comes before honor.
