Proverbs 24:1-11 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Don't envy evil people; don't desire their company. 2 For they spend their days plotting violence, and their words are always stirring up trouble. 3 A house is built by wisdom and becomes strong through good sense. 4 Through knowledge its rooms are filled with all sorts of precious riches and valuables. 5 A wise man is mightier than a strong man, a and a man of knowledge is more powerful than a strong man. 6 So don't go to war without wise guidance; victory depends on having many counselors. 7 Wisdom is too much for a fool. When the leaders gather, the fool has nothing to say. 8 A person who plans evil will get a reputation as a troublemaker. 9 The schemes of a fool are sinful; everyone despises a mocker. 10 If you fail under pressure, your strength is not very great. 11 Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don't stand back and let them die.
