Proverbs 19:17-27 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
17 If you help the poor, you are lending to the LORD -- and he will repay you! 18 Discipline your children while there is hope. If you don't, you will ruin their lives. 19 Short-tempered people must pay their own penalty. If you rescue them once, you will have to do it again. 20 Get all the advice and instruction you can, and be wise the rest of your life. 21 You can make many plans, but the LORD's purpose will prevail. 22 Loyalty makes a person attractive. And it is better to be poor than dishonest. 23 Fear of the LORD gives life, security, and protection from harm. 24 Some people are so lazy that they won't even lift a finger to feed themselves. 25 If you punish a mocker, the simpleminded will learn a lesson; if you reprove the wise, they will be all the wiser. 26 Children who mistreat their father or chase away their mother are a public disgrace and an embarrassment. 27 If you stop listening to instruction, my child, you have turned your back on knowledge.
