Proverbs 13:12-22 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.1 13 He who scorns instruction will pay for it,2 but he who respects3 a command is rewarded.4 14 The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life,5 turning a man from the snares of death.6 15 Good understanding wins favor, but the way of the unfaithful is hard.a 16 Every prudent man acts out of knowledge, but a fool exposes7 his folly.8 17 A wicked messenger falls into trouble,9 but a trustworthy envoy brings healing.10 18 He who ignores discipline comes to poverty and shame,11 but whoever heeds correction is honored.12 19 A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul,13 but fools detest turning from evil. 20 He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.14 21 Misfortune pursues the sinner,15 but prosperity16 is the reward of the righteous.17 22 A good man leaves an inheritance for his children's children, but a sinner's wealth is stored up for the righteous.18
