Proverbs 18:3-13 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
3 When wickedness comes, so does contempt, and with shame comes disgrace. 4 The words of a man's mouth are deep waters,1 but the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook. 5 It is not good to be partial to the wicked2 or to deprive the innocent of justice.3 6 A fool's lips bring him strife, and his mouth invites a beating.4 7 A fool's mouth is his undoing, and his lips are a snare5 to his soul.6 8 The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to a man's inmost parts.7 9 One who is slack in his work is brother to one who destroys.8 10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower;9 the righteous run to it and are safe.10 11 The wealth of the rich is their fortified city;11 they imagine it an unscalable wall. 12 Before his downfall a man's heart is proud, but humility comes before honor.12 13 He who answers before listening-- that is his folly and his shame.13
