Proverbs 11:1-7 NCV

1 The Lord hates dishonest scales, but he is pleased with honest weights.
2 Pride leads only to shame; it is wise to be humble.
3 Good people will be guided by honesty; dishonesty will destroy those who are not trustworthy.
4 Riches will not help when it's time to die, but right living will save you from death.
5 The goodness of the innocent makes life easier, but the wicked will be destroyed by their wickedness.
6 Doing right brings freedom to honest people, but those who are not trustworthy will be caught by their own desires.
7 When the wicked die, hope dies with them; their hope in riches will come to nothing.
