Proverbs 12:4-14 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
4 An a1excellent wife is the crown of her husband, But she who shames him is like 2rottenness in his bones. 5 The thoughts of the righteous are just, But the counsels of the wicked are deceitful. 6 The 3words of the wicked lie in wait for blood, But the 4mouth of the upright will deliver them. 7 The 5wicked are overthrown and are no more, But the 6house of the righteous will stand. 8 A man will be praised according to his insight, But one of perverse bmind will be despised. 9 Better is he who is lightly esteemed and has a servant Than he who honors himself and lacks bread. 10 A 7righteous man has regard for the life of his animal, But even the compassion of the wicked is cruel. 11 He 8who tills his land will have plenty of bread, But he who pursues worthless things lacks csense. 12 The 9wicked man desires the dbooty of evil men, But the root of the righteous 10yields fruit. 13 eAn evil man is ensnared by the transgression of his lips, But the 11righteous will escape from trouble. 14 A man will be 12satisfied with good by the fruit of his fwords, And the 13deeds of a man's hands will return to him.
