Proverbs 22:10-20 (GOD'S WORD Translation)

View In My Bible
10 Drive out a mocker, and conflict will leave. Quarreling and abuse will stop. 11 Whoever loves a pure heart and whoever speaks graciously has a king as his friend. 12 The LORD's eyes watch over knowledge, but he overturns the words of a treacherous person. 13 A lazy person says, "There's a lion outside! I'll be murdered in the streets!" 14 The mouth of an adulterous woman is a deep pit. The one who is cursed by the LORD will fall into it. 15 Foolishness is firmly attached to a child's heart. Spanking will remove it far from him. 16 Oppressing the poor for profit [or] giving to the rich certainly leads to poverty. 17 Open your ears, and hear the words of wise people, and set your mind on the knowledge I give you. 18 It is pleasant if you keep them in mind [so that] they will be on the tip of your tongue, 19 so that your trust may be in the LORD. Today I have made them known to you, especially to you. 20 Didn't I write to you previously with advice and knowledge
