Proverbs 19:21-29 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
21 Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.1 22 What a man desires is unfailing lovea; better to be poor than a liar. 23 The fear of the LORD leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.2 24 The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not even bring it back to his mouth!3 25 Flog a mocker, and the simple will learn prudence; rebuke a discerning man,4 and he will gain knowledge.5 26 He who robs his father and drives out his mother6 is a son who brings shame and disgrace. 27 Stop listening to instruction, my son,7 and you will stray from the words of knowledge. 28 A corrupt witness mocks at justice, and the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil.8 29 Penalties are prepared for mockers, and beatings for the backs of fools.9
