Proverbs 17:1-6 NLT

1 A dry crust eaten in peace is better than a great feast with strife.
2 A wise slave will rule over the master's shameful sons and will share their inheritance.
3 Fire tests the purity of silver and gold, but the LORD tests the heart.
4 Wrongdoers listen to wicked talk; liars pay attention to destructive words.
5 Those who mock the poor insult their Maker; those who rejoice at the misfortune of others will be punished.
6 Grandchildren are the crowning glory of the aged; parents are the pride of their children.
