Proverbs 12:1-9 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but those who hate to be rebuked are stupid. 2 The good obtain favor from the Lord, but those who devise evil he condemns. 3 No one finds security by wickedness, but the root of the righteous will never be moved. 4 A good wife is the crown of her husband, but she who brings shame is like rottenness in his bones. 5 The thoughts of the righteous are just; the advice of the wicked is treacherous. 6 The words of the wicked are a deadly ambush, but the speech of the upright delivers them. 7 The wicked are overthrown and are no more, but the house of the righteous will stand. 8 One is commended for good sense, but a perverse mind is despised. 9 Better to be despised and have a servant, than to be self-important and lack food.
