Proverbs 18:5-15 NLT

5 It is wrong for a judge to favor the guilty or condemn the innocent.
6 Fools get into constant quarrels; they are asking for a beating.
7 The mouths of fools are their ruin; their lips get them into trouble.
8 What dainty morsels rumors are -- but they sink deep into one's heart.
9 A lazy person is as bad as someone who destroys things.
10 The name of the LORD is a strong fortress; the godly run to him and are safe.
11 The rich think of their wealth as an impregnable defense; they imagine it is a high wall of safety.
12 Haughtiness goes before destruction; humility precedes honor.
13 What a shame, what folly, to give advice before listening to the facts!
14 The human spirit can endure a sick body, but who can bear it if the spirit is crushed?
15 Intelligent people are always open to new ideas. In fact, they look for them.
