Proverbs 10:1-10 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 The proverbs of Solomon: A wise childa brings joy to a father; a foolish child brings grief to a mother. 2 Ill-gotten gain has no lasting value, but right living can save your life. 3 The LORD will not let the godly starve to death, but he refuses to satisfy the craving of the wicked. 4 Lazy people are soon poor; hard workers get rich. 5 A wise youth works hard all summer; a youth who sleeps away the hour of opportunity brings shame. 6 The godly are showered with blessings; evil people cover up their harmful intentions. 7 We all have happy memories of the godly, but the name of a wicked person rots away. 8 The wise are glad to be instructed, but babbling fools fall flat on their faces. 9 People with integrity have firm footing, but those who follow crooked paths will slip and fall. 10 People who wink at wrong cause trouble, but a bold reproof promotes peace. b
