Proverbs 14:7-17 (Revised Standard Version)

View In My Bible
7 Leave the presence of a fool, for there you do not meet words of knowledge. 8 The wisdom of a prudent man is to discern his way, but the folly of fools is deceiving. 9 God scorns the wicked, but the upright enjoy his favor. 10 The heart knows its own bitterness, and no stranger shares its joy. 11 The house of the wicked will be destroyed, but the tent of the upright will flourish. 12 There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. 13 Even in laughter the heart is sad, and the end of joy is grief. 14 A perverse man will be filled with the fruit of his ways, and a good man with the fruit of his deeds. 15 The simple believes everything, but the prudent looks where he is going. 16 A wise man is cautious and turns away from evil, but a fool throws off restraint and is careless. 17 A man of quick temper acts foolishly, but a man of discretion is patient.
