Proverbs 12:6-16 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
6 The 1words of the wicked lie in wait for blood, But the 2mouth of the upright will deliver them. 7 The 3wicked are overthrown and are no more, But the 4house of the righteous will stand. 8 A man will be praised according to his insight, But one of perverse amind 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 5righteous man has regard for the life of his animal, But even the compassion of the wicked is cruel. 11 He 6who tills his land will have plenty of bread, But he who pursues worthless things lacks bsense. 12 The 7wicked man desires the cbooty of evil men, But the root of the righteous 8yields fruit. 13 dAn evil man is ensnared by the transgression of his lips, But the 9righteous will escape from trouble. 14 A man will be 10satisfied with good by the fruit of his ewords, And the 11deeds of a man's hands will return to him. 15 The 12way of a fool is right in his own eyes, But a wise man is he who listens to counsel. 16 A 13fool's anger is known at once, But a prudent man conceals dishonor.
