Proverbs 16:20-30 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
20 Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers,1 and blessed is he who trusts in the LORD.2 21 The wise in heart are called discerning, and pleasant words promote instruction.a3 22 Understanding is a fountain of life to those who have it,4 but folly brings punishment to fools. 23 A wise man's heart guides his mouth,5 and his lips promote instruction.b6 24 Pleasant words are a honeycomb,7 sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.8 25 There is a way that seems right to a man,9 but in the end it leads to death.10 26 The laborer's appetite works for him; his hunger drives him on. 27 A scoundrel11 plots evil, and his speech is like a scorching fire.12 28 A perverse man stirs up dissension,13 and a gossip separates close friends.14 29 A violent man entices his neighbor and leads him down a path that is not good.15 30 He who winks16 with his eye is plotting perversity; he who purses his lips is bent on evil.
