Proverbs of Solomon

1 The proverbs1 of Solomon:2 A wise son brings joy to his father,3 but a foolish son grief to his mother. 2 Ill-gotten treasures are of no value,4 but righteousness delivers from death.5 3 The LORD does not let the righteous go hungry6 but he thwarts the craving of the wicked.7 4 Lazy hands make a man poor,8 but diligent hands bring wealth.9 5 He who gathers crops in summer is a wise son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.10 6 Blessings crown the head of the righteous, but violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked.a11 7 The memory of the righteous12 will be a blessing, but the name of the wicked13 will rot.14 8 The wise in heart accept commands, but a chattering fool comes to ruin.15 9 The man of integrity16 walks securely,17 but he who takes crooked paths will be found out.18 10 He who winks maliciously19 causes grief, and a chattering fool comes to ruin. 11 The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life,20 but violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked.21
