Proverbs 16:13-23 (Douay-Rheims)

View In My Bible
13 Just lips are the delight of kings: he that speaketh right things shall be loved. 14 The wrath of a king is as messengers of death: and the wise man will pacify it. 15 In the cheerfulness of the king’s countenance is life: and his clemency is like the latter rain. 16 Get wisdom, because it is better than gold: and purchase prudence, for it is more precious than silver. 17 The path of the just departeth from evils: he that keepeth his soul keepeth his way. 18 Pride goeth before destruction: and the spirit is lifted up before a fall. 19 It is better to be humbled with the meek, than to divide spoils with the proud. 20 The learned in word shall find good things: and he that trusteth in the Lord is blessed. 21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and he that is sweet in words, shall attain to greater things. 22 Knowledge is a fountain of life to him that possesseth it: the instruction of fools is foolishness. 23 The heart of the wise shall instruct his mouth: and shall add grace to his lips.
