Proverbs 18:2-12 (Revised Standard Version)

View In My Bible
2 A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion. 3 When wickedness comes, contempt comes also; and with dishonor comes disgrace. 4 The words of a man's mouth are deep waters; the fountain of wisdom is a gushing stream. 5 It is not good to be partial to a wicked man, or to deprive a righteous man of justice. 6 A fool's lips bring strife, and his mouth invites a flogging. 7 A fool's mouth is his ruin, and his lips are a snare to himself. 8 The words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels; they go down into the inner parts of the body. 9 He who is slack in his work is a brother to him who destroys. 10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe. 11 A rich man's wealth is his strong city, and like a high wall protecting him. 12 Before destruction a man's heart is haughty, but humility goes before honor.
