Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 A wise son heareth the doctrine of his father: but he that is a scorner, heareth not when he is reproved. 1 A wise son heeds his father's instruction, but a mocker does not listen to rebuke.
2 Of the fruit of his own month shall a man be filled with good things: but the soul of transgressors is wicked. 2 From the fruit of his lips a man enjoys good things, but the unfaithful have a craving for violence.
3 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his soul: but he that hath no guard on his speech shall meet with evils. 3 He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin.
4 The sluggard willeth, and willeth not: but the soul of them that work, shall be made fat. 4 The sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.
5 The just shall hate a lying word: but the wicked confoundeth, and shall be confounded. 5 The righteous hate what is false, but the wicked bring shame and disgrace.
6 Justice keepeth the way of the innocent: but wickedness overthroweth the sinner. 6 Righteousness guards the man of integrity, but wickedness overthrows the sinner.
7 One is as it were rich, when he hath nothing and another is as it were poor, when he hath great riches. 7 One man pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth.
8 The ransom of a man’s life are his riches: but he that is poor, beareth not reprehension. 8 A man's riches may ransom his life, but a poor man hears no threat.
9 The light of the just giveth joy: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out. 9 The light of the righteous shines brightly, but the lamp of the wicked is snuffed out.
10 Among the proud there are always contentions: but they that do all things with counsel, are ruled by wisdom. 10 Pride only breeds quarrels, but wisdom is found in those who take advice.
11 Substance got in haste shall be diminished: but that which by little and little is gathered with the hand, shall increase. 11 Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow.
12 Hope that is deferred afflicteth the soul: desire when it cometh, is a tree of life. 12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.
13 Whosoever speaketh ill of any thing, bindeth himself for the time to come: but he that feareth the commandment, shall dwell in peace. Deceitful souls go astray in sins: the just are merciful, and shew mercy. 13 He who scorns instruction will pay for it, but he who respects a command is rewarded.
14 The law of the wise is a fountain of life, that he may decline from the ruin of death. 14 The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, turning a man from the snares of death.
15 Good instruction shall give grace: in the way of scorners is a deep pit. 15 Good understanding wins favor, but the way of the unfaithful is hard.
16 The prudent man doth all things with counsel: but he that is a fool, layeth open his folly. 16 Every prudent man acts out of knowledge, but a fool exposes his folly.
17 The messenger of the wicked shall fall into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health. 17 A wicked messenger falls into trouble, but a trustworthy envoy brings healing.
18 Poverty and shame to him that refuseth instruction: but he that yieldeth to reproof shall be glorified. 18 He who ignores discipline comes to poverty and shame, but whoever heeds correction is honored.
19 The desire that is accomplished, delighteth the soul: fools hate them that flee from evil things. 19 A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul, but fools detest turning from evil.
20 He that walketh with the wise, shall be wise: a friend of fools shall become like to them. 20 He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.
21 Evil pursueth sinners: and to the just good shall be repaid. 21 Misfortune pursues the sinner, but prosperity is the reward of the righteous.
22 The good man leaveth heirs, sons, and grandsons: and the substance of the sinner is kept for the just. 22 A good man leaves an inheritance for his children's children, but a sinner's wealth is stored up for the righteous.
23 Much food is in the tillage of fathers: but for others it is gathered without judgment. 23 A poor man's field may produce abundant food, but injustice sweeps it away.
24 He that spareth the rod, hateth his son: but he that loveth him, correcteth him betimes. 24 He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him.
25 The just eateth and filleth his soul: but the belly of the wicked is never to be filled. 25 The righteous eat to their hearts' content, but the stomach of the wicked goes hungry.
