Proverbs 20:15-25 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
15 Wise speech is rarer and more valuable than gold and rubies. 16 Be sure to get collateral from anyone who guarantees the debt of a stranger. Get a deposit if someone guarantees the debt of a foreigner. a 17 Stolen bread tastes sweet, but it turns to gravel in the mouth. 18 Plans succeed through good counsel; don't go to war without the advice of others. 19 A gossip tells secrets, so don't hang around with someone who talks too much. 20 If you curse your father or mother, the lamp of your life will be snuffed out. 21 An inheritance obtained early in life is not a blessing in the end. 22 Don't say, "I will get even for this wrong." Wait for the LORD to handle the matter. 23 The LORD despises double standards; he is not pleased by dishonest scales. 24 How can we understand the road we travel? It is the LORD who directs our steps. 25 It is dangerous to make a rash promise to God before counting the cost.
