Proverbs 14:1-6 HNV

1 Every wise woman builds her house, But the foolish one tears it down with her own hands.
2 He who walks in his uprightness fears the LORD, But he who is perverse in his ways despises him.
3 The fool's talk brings a rod to his back, But the lips of the wise protect them.
4 Where no oxen are, the crib is clean, But much increase is by the strength of the ox.
5 A truthful witness will not lie, But a false witness pours out lies.
6 A scoffer seeks wisdom, and doesn't find it, But knowledge comes easily to a discerning person.
