Proverbs 18:2-12 (New Century Version)

View In My Bible
2 Fools do not want to understand anything. They only want to tell others what they think. 3 Do something evil, and people won't like you. Do something shameful, and they will make fun of you. 4 Spoken words can be like deep water, but wisdom is like a flowing stream. 5 It is not good to honor the wicked or to be unfair to the innocent. 6 The words of fools start quarrels. They make people want to beat them. 7 The words of fools will ruin them; their own words will trap them. 8 The words of a gossip are like tasty bits of food. People like to gobble them up. 9 A person who doesn't work hard is just like someone who destroys things. 10 The Lord is like a strong tower; those who do right can run to him for safety. 11 Rich people trust their wealth to protect them. They think it is like the high walls of a city. 12 Proud people will be ruined, but the humble will be honored.
