Proverbs 19:6-16 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
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. 12 A king's anger is like the growling of a lion, but his favor is like dew on the grass. 13 A stupid child is ruin to a father, and a wife's quarreling is a continual dripping of rain. 14 House and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the Lord. 15 Laziness brings on deep sleep; an idle person will suffer hunger. 16 Those who keep the commandment will live; those who are heedless of their ways will die.
