Proverbs 17:18-28 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
18 It is senseless to give a pledge, to become surety for a neighbor. 19 One who loves transgression loves strife; one who builds a high threshold invites broken bones. 20 The crooked of mind do not prosper, and the perverse of tongue fall into calamity. 21 The one who begets a fool gets trouble; the parent of a fool has no joy. 22 A cheerful heart is a good medicine, but a downcast spirit dries up the bones. 23 The wicked accept a concealed bribe to pervert the ways of justice. 24 The discerning person looks to wisdom, but the eyes of a fool to the ends of the earth. 25 Foolish children are a grief to their father and bitterness to her who bore them. 26 To impose a fine on the innocent is not right, or to flog the noble for their integrity. 27 One who spares words is knowledgeable; one who is cool in spirit has understanding. 28 Even fools who keep silent are considered wise; when they close their lips, they are deemed intelligent.
