Proverbs 26:14-24 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
14 As a door turns back and forth on its hinges, so the lazy person turns over in bed. 15 Some people are so lazy that they won't lift a finger to feed themselves. 16 Lazy people consider themselves smarter than seven wise counselors. 17 Yanking a dog's ears is as foolish as interfering in someone else's argument. 18 Just as damaging as a mad man shooting a lethal weapon 19 is someone who lies to a friend and then says, "I was only joking." 20 Fire goes out for lack of fuel, and quarrels disappear when gossip stops. 21 A quarrelsome person starts fights as easily as hot embers light charcoal or fire lights wood. 22 What dainty morsels rumors are -- but they sink deep into one's heart. 23 Smooth a words may hide a wicked heart, just as a pretty glaze covers a common clay pot. 24 People with hate in their hearts may sound pleasant enough, but don't believe them.
