These are the proverbs of Solomon. A wise son makes his father glad. But a foolish son brings sorrow to his mother.
Riches that are gained by sinning aren't worth anything. But doing what is right saves you from death.
The LORD gives those who do right the food they need. But he lets those who do wrong go hungry.
Hands that don't want to work make you poor. But hands that work hard bring wealth to you.
A child who gathers crops in summer is wise. But a child who sleeps at harvest time brings shame.
Blessings are like crowns on the heads of those who do right. But the trouble caused by what sinners say destroys them.
