Proverbs 17:3-13 (King James Version)

View In My Bible
3 The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD trieth the hearts. 4 A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue. 5 Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker : and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished .a 6 Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers. 7 Excellentb speech becometh not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince. 8 A gift is as a preciousc stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth , it prospereth . 9 He that covereth a transgression seekethd love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends. 10 A reproof enterethe more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool. 11 An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him. 12 Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man, rather than a fool in his folly. 13 Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.
