Proverbs 18:2-12 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
2 Fools have no interest in understanding; they only want to air their own opinions. 3 When the wicked arrive, contempt, shame, and disgrace are sure to follow. 4 A person's words can be life-giving water; words of true wisdom are as refreshing as a bubbling brook. 5 It is wrong for a judge to favor the guilty or condemn the innocent. 6 Fools get into constant quarrels; they are asking for a beating. 7 The mouths of fools are their ruin; their lips get them into trouble. 8 What dainty morsels rumors are -- but they sink deep into one's heart. 9 A lazy person is as bad as someone who destroys things. 10 The name of the LORD is a strong fortress; the godly run to him and are safe. 11 The rich think of their wealth as an impregnable defense; they imagine it is a high wall of safety. 12 Haughtiness goes before destruction; humility precedes honor.
