Proverbs 18:2-12 (Third Millennium Bible)

View In My Bible
2 A fool hath no delight in understanding, unless his heart may discover itself. 3 When the wicked cometh, then cometh also contempt; and with ignominy, reproach. 4 The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook. 5 It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment. 6 A fool's lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for blows. 7 A fool's mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul. 8 The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly. 9 He that is slothful in his work is a brother to him that is a great waster. 10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous runneth into it and is safe. 11 The rich man's wealth is his stronghold, and as a high wall in his own conceit. 12 Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty, and before honor is humility.
