Proverbs 19:1-11 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
1 Better the poor walking in integrity than one perverse of speech who is a fool. 2 Desire without knowledge is not good, and one who moves too hurriedly misses the way. 3 One's own folly leads to ruin, yet the heart rages against the Lord. 4 Wealth brings many friends, but the poor are left friendless. 5 A false witness will not go unpunished, and a liar will not escape. 6 Many seek the favor of the generous, and everyone is a friend to a giver of gifts. 7 If the poor are hated even by their kin, how much more are they shunned by their friends! When they call after them, they are not there. a 8 To get wisdom is to love oneself; to keep understanding is to prosper. 9 A false witness will not go unpunished, and the liar will perish. 10 It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury, much less for a slave to rule over princes. 11 Those with good sense are slow to anger, and it is their glory to overlook an offense.
