Proverbs 18:2-12 (Douay-Rheims)

View In My Bible
2 A fool receiveth not the words of prudence: unless thou say those things which are in his heart. 3 The wicked man, when he is come into the depths of sins, contemneth: but ignominy and reproach follow him. 4 Words from the mouth of a man are as deep water: and the fountain of wisdom is an overflowing stream. 5 It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to decline from the truth of judgment. 6 The lips of a fool intermeddle with strife: and his mouth provoketh quarrels. 7 The mouth of a fool is his destruction: and his lips are the ruin of his soul. 8 The words of the double tongued are as if they were harmless: and they reach even to the inner parts of the bowels. Fear casteth down the slothful: and the souls of the effeminate shall be hungry. 9 He that is loose and slack in his work, is the brother of him that wasteth his own works. 10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the just runneth to it, and shall be exalted. 11 The substance of the rich man is the city of his strength, and as a strong wall compassing him about. 12 Before destruction, the heart of a man is exalted: and before he be glorified, it is humbled.
