Proverbs 14:1-10 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
1 The wise woman a builds her house, but the foolish tears it down with her own hands. 2 Those who walk uprightly fear the Lord, but one who is devious in conduct despises him. 3 The talk of fools is a rod for their backs, b but the lips of the wise preserve them. 4 Where there are no oxen, there is no grain; abundant crops come by the strength of the ox. 5 A faithful witness does not lie, but a false witness breathes out lies. 6 A scoffer seeks wisdom in vain, but knowledge is easy for one who understands. 7 Leave the presence of a fool, for there you do not find words of knowledge. 8 It is the wisdom of the clever to understand where they go, but the folly of fools misleads. 9 Fools mock at the guilt offering, c but the upright enjoy God's favor. 10 The heart knows its own bitterness, and no stranger shares its joy.
