Proverbs 19:5-15 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
5 A false witness1 will not go unpunished,2 and he who pours out lies will not go free.3 6 Many curry favor with a ruler,4 and everyone is the friend of a man who gives gifts.5 7 A poor man is shunned by all his relatives-- how much more do his friends avoid him!6 Though he pursues them with pleading, they are nowhere to be found.a7 8 He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; he who cherishes understanding prospers.8 9 A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who pours out lies will perish.9 10 It is not fitting for a fool10 to live in luxury-- how much worse for a slave to rule over princes!11 11 A man's wisdom gives him patience;12 it is to his glory to overlook an offense. 12 A king's rage is like the roar of a lion,13 but his favor is like dew14 on the grass.15 13 A foolish son is his father's ruin,16 and a quarrelsome wife is like a constant dripping.17 14 Houses and wealth are inherited from parents,18 but a prudent wife is from the LORD.19 15 Laziness brings on deep sleep, and the shiftless man goes hungry.20
