Proverbs 14:21-31 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
21 It is sin to despise one's neighbors; blessed are those who help the poor. 22 If you plot evil, you will be lost; but if you plan good, you will be granted unfailing love and faithfulness. 23 Work brings profit, but mere talk leads to poverty! 24 Wealth is a crown for the wise; the effort of fools yields only folly. 25 A truthful witness saves lives, but a false witness is a traitor. 26 Those who fear the LORD are secure; he will be a place of refuge for their children. 27 Fear of the LORD is a life-giving fountain; it offers escape from the snares of death. 28 A growing population is a king's glory; a dwindling nation is his doom. 29 Those who control their anger have great understanding; those with a hasty temper will make mistakes. 30 A relaxed attitude lengthens life; jealousy rots it away. 31 Those who oppress the poor insult their Maker, but those who help the poor honor him.
