Proverbs 10:13-23 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
13 On 1the lips of the discerning, wisdom is found, But 2a rod is for the back of him who lacks aunderstanding. 14 Wise men 3store up knowledge, But with 4the mouth of the foolish, ruin is at hand. 15 The 5rich man's wealth is his bfortress , The 6ruin of the poor is their poverty. 16 The c7wages of the righteous is life, The income of the wicked, punishment. 17 He 8is on the path of life who heeds instruction, But he who ignores reproof goes astray. 18 He 9who conceals hatred has lying lips, And he who spreads slander is a fool. 19 When there are 10many words, transgression is unavoidable , But 11he who restrains his lips is wise. 20 The tongue of the righteous is as 12choice silver, The heart of the wicked is worth little. 21 The 13lips of the righteous feed many, But fools 14die for lack of dunderstanding. 22 It is the 15blessing of the LORD that makes rich, And He adds no sorrow to it. 23 Doing wickedness is like 16sport to a fool, And so is wisdom to a man of understanding.
