Proverbs 20:2-12 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
2 The king's fury is like a lion's roar; to rouse his anger is to risk your life. 3 Avoiding a fight is a mark of honor; only fools insist on quarreling. 4 If you are too lazy to plow in the right season, you will have no food at the harvest. 5 Though good advice lies deep within a person's heart, the wise will draw it out. 6 Many will say they are loyal friends, but who can find one who is really faithful? 7 The godly walk with integrity; blessed are their children after them. 8 When a king judges, he carefully weighs all the evidence, distinguishing the bad from the good. 9 Who can say, "I have cleansed my heart; I am pure and free from sin"? 10 The LORD despises double standards of every kind. 11 Even children are known by the way they act, whether their conduct is pure and right. 12 Ears to hear and eyes to see -- both are gifts from the LORD.
