Proverbs 19:6-16 RSV

6 Many seek the favor of a generous man, and every one is a friend to a man who gives gifts.
7 All a poor man's brothers hate him; how much more do his friends go far from him! He pursues them with words, but does not have them.
8 He who gets wisdom loves himself; he who keeps understanding will prosper.
9 A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who utters lies will perish.
10 It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury, much less for a slave to rule over princes.
11 Good sense makes a man slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
12 A king's wrath is like the growling of a lion, but his favor is like dew upon the grass.
13 A foolish son is ruin to his father, and a wife's quarreling is a continual dripping of rain.
14 House and wealth are inherited from fathers, but a prudent wife is from the LORD.
15 Slothfulness casts into a deep sleep, and an idle person will suffer hunger.
16 He who keeps the commandment keeps his life; he who despises the word will die.
