Proverbs 13:9-19 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
9 The light of the righteous rejoices, but the lamp of the wicked goes out. 10 By insolence the heedless make strife, but wisdom is with those who take advice. 11 Wealth hastily gotten a will dwindle, but those who gather little by little will increase it. 12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life. 13 Those who despise the word bring destruction on themselves, but those who respect the commandment will be rewarded. 14 The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, so that one may avoid the snares of death. 15 Good sense wins favor, but the way of the faithless is their ruin. b 16 The clever do all things intelligently, but the fool displays folly. 17 A bad messenger brings trouble, but a faithful envoy, healing. 18 Poverty and disgrace are for the one who ignores instruction, but one who heeds reproof is honored. 19 A desire realized is sweet to the soul, but to turn away from evil is an abomination to fools.
