Proverbs 13

YLT 1 A wise son -- the instruction of a father, And a scorner -- he hath not heard rebuke. NIV 1 A wise son heeds his father's instruction, but a mocker does not listen to rebuke. YLT 2 From the fruit of the mouth a man eateth good, And the soul of the treacherous -- violence. NIV 2 From the fruit of his lips a man enjoys good things, but the unfaithful have a craving for violence. YLT 3 Whoso is keeping his mouth, is keeping his soul, Whoso is opening wide his lips -- ruin to him! NIV 3 He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin. YLT 4 The soul of the slothful is desiring, and hath not. And the soul of the diligent is made fat. NIV 4 The sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied. YLT 5 A false word the righteous hateth, And the wicked causeth abhorrence, and is confounded. NIV 5 The righteous hate what is false, but the wicked bring shame and disgrace. YLT 6 Righteousness keepeth him who is perfect in the way, And wickedness overthroweth a sin offering. NIV 6 Righteousness guards the man of integrity, but wickedness overthrows the sinner. YLT 7 There is who is making himself rich, and hath nothing, Who is making himself poor, and wealth [is] abundant. NIV 7 One man pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth. YLT 8 The ransom of a man's life [are] his riches, And the poor hath not heard rebuke. NIV 8 A man's riches may ransom his life, but a poor man hears no threat. YLT 9 The light of the righteous rejoiceth, And the lamp of the wicked is extinguished. NIV 9 The light of the righteous shines brightly, but the lamp of the wicked is snuffed out. YLT 10 A vain man through pride causeth debate, And with the counselled [is] wisdom. NIV 10 Pride only breeds quarrels, but wisdom is found in those who take advice. YLT 11 Wealth from vanity becometh little, And whoso is gathering by the hand becometh great. NIV 11 Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow. YLT 12 Hope prolonged is making the heart sick, And a tree of life [is] the coming desire. NIV 12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. YLT 13 Whoso is despising the Word is destroyed for it, And whoso is fearing the Command is repayed. NIV 13 He who scorns instruction will pay for it, but he who respects a command is rewarded. YLT 14 The law of the wise [is] a fountain of life, To turn aside from snares of death. NIV 14 The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, turning a man from the snares of death. YLT 15 Good understanding giveth grace, And the way of the treacherous [is] hard. NIV 15 Good understanding wins favor, but the way of the unfaithful is hard. YLT 16 Every prudent one dealeth with knowledge, And a fool spreadeth out folly. NIV 16 Every prudent man acts out of knowledge, but a fool exposes his folly. YLT 17 A wicked messenger falleth into evil, And a faithful ambassador is healing. NIV 17 A wicked messenger falls into trouble, but a trustworthy envoy brings healing. YLT 18 Whoso is refusing instruction -- poverty and shame, And whoso is observing reproof is honoured. NIV 18 He who ignores discipline comes to poverty and shame, but whoever heeds correction is honored. YLT 19 A desire accomplished is sweet to the soul, And an abomination to fools [is]: Turn from evil. NIV 19 A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul, but fools detest turning from evil. YLT 20 Whoso is walking with wise men is wise, And a companion of fools suffereth evil. NIV 20 He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm. YLT 21 Evil pursueth sinners, And good recompenseth the righteous. NIV 21 Misfortune pursues the sinner, but prosperity is the reward of the righteous. YLT 22 A good man causeth sons' sons to inherit, And laid up for the righteous [is] the sinner's wealth. NIV 22 A good man leaves an inheritance for his children's children, but a sinner's wealth is stored up for the righteous. YLT 23 Abundance of food -- the tillage of the poor, And substance is consumed without judgment. NIV 23 A poor man's field may produce abundant food, but injustice sweeps it away. YLT 24 Whoso is sparing his rod is hating his son, And whoso is loving him hath hastened him chastisement. NIV 24 He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him. YLT 25 The righteous is eating to the satiety of his soul, And the belly of the wicked lacketh! NIV 25 The righteous eat to their hearts' content, but the stomach of the wicked goes hungry.
