Proverbs 14:11-21 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
11 The house of the wicked is destroyed, but the tent of the upright flourishes. 12 There is a way that seems right to a person, but its end is the way to death. a 13 Even in laughter the heart is sad, and the end of joy is grief. 14 The perverse get what their ways deserve, and the good, what their deeds deserve. b 15 The simple believe everything, but the clever consider their steps. 16 The wise are cautious and turn away from evil, but the fool throws off restraint and is careless. 17 One who is quick-tempered acts foolishly, and the schemer is hated. 18 The simple are adorned with c folly, but the clever are crowned with knowledge. 19 The evil bow down before the good, the wicked at the gates of the righteous. 20 The poor are disliked even by their neighbors, but the rich have many friends. 21 Those who despise their neighbors are sinners, but happy are those who are kind to the poor.
