Proverbs 19:20-29 NCV

20 Listen to advice and accept correction, and in the end you will be wise.
21 People can make all kinds of plans, but only the Lord's plan will happen.
22 People want others to be loyal, so it is better to be poor than to be a liar.
23 Those who respect the Lord will live and be satisfied, unbothered by trouble.
24 Though the lazy person puts his hand in the dish, he won't lift the food to his mouth.
25 Whip those who make fun of wisdom, and perhaps foolish people will gain some wisdom. Correct those with understanding, and they will gain knowledge.
26 A son who robs his father and sends away his mother brings shame and disgrace on himself.
27 Don't stop listening to correction, my child, or you will forget what you have already learned.
28 An evil witness makes fun of fairness, and wicked people love what is evil.
29 People who make fun of wisdom will be punished, and the backs of foolish people will be beaten.
