Proverbs 21:15-25 (The Message)

View In My Bible
15 Good people celebrate when justice triumphs, but for the workers of evil it's a bad day. 16 Whoever wanders off the straight and narrow ends up in a congregation of ghosts. 17 You're addicted to thrills? What an empty life! The pursuit of pleasure is never satisfied. 18 What a bad person plots against the good, boomerangs; the plotter gets it in the end. 19 Better to live in a tent in the wild than with a cross and petulant spouse. 20 Valuables are safe in a wise person's home; fools put it all out for yard sales. 21 Whoever goes hunting for what is right and kind finds life itself - glorious life! 22 One sage entered a whole city of armed soldiers - their trusted defenses fell to pieces! 23 Watch your words and hold your tongue; you'll save yourself a lot of grief. 24 You know their names - Brash, Impudent, Blasphemer - intemperate hotheads, every one. 25 Lazy people finally die of hunger because they won't get up and go to work.
