Proverbs 18:5-15 (Revised Standard Version)

View In My Bible
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. 13 If one gives answer before he hears, it is his folly and shame. 14 A man's spirit will endure sickness; but a broken spirit who can bear? 15 An intelligent mind acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
