Proverbs 13:1-7 RSV

1 A wise son hears his father's instruction, but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.
2 From the fruit of his mouth a good man eats good, but the desire of the treacherous is for violence.
3 He who guards his mouth preserves his life; he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.
4 The soul of the sluggard craves, and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.
5 A righteous man hates falsehood, but a wicked man acts shamefully and disgracefully.
6 Righteousness guards him whose way is upright, but sin overthrows the wicked.
7 One man pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth.
