Proverbs 18:2-12 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
2 A fool does not delight in understanding, But only 1in revealing his own amind. 3 When a wicked man comes, contempt also comes, And with dishonor comes scorn. 4 The words of a man's mouth are 2deep waters; bThe fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook. 5 To 3show partiality to the wicked is not good, Nor to 4thrust aside the righteous in judgment. 6 A fool's lips cbring strife, And his mouth calls for 5blows. 7 A 6fool's mouth is his ruin, And his lips are the snare of his soul. 8 The words of a whisperer are like dainty morsels, And they go down into the dinnermost parts of the body. 9 He also who is 7slack in his work 8Is brother to him who destroys. 10 The 9name of the LORD is a 10strong tower; The righteous runs into it and 11is esafe. 11 A 12rich man's wealth is his strong city, And like a high wall in his own imagination. 12 13Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, But 14humility goes before honor.
