Proverbs 12:1-9 RSVA

1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid.
2 A good man obtains favor from the LORD, but a man of evil devices he condemns.
3 A man is not established by wickedness, but the root of the righteous will never be moved.
4 A good wife is the crown of her husband, but she who brings shame is like rottenness in his bones.
5 The thoughts of the righteous are just; the counsels of the wicked are treacherous.
6 The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood, but the mouth of the upright delivers men.
7 The wicked are overthrown and are no more, but the house of the righteous will stand.
8 A man is commended according to his good sense, but one of perverse mind is despised.
9 Better is a man of humble standing who works for himself than one who plays the great man but lacks bread.
