Proverbs 20:11-21 (Third Millennium Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
11 Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure and whether it be right. 12 The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them. 13 Love not sleep lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread. 14 "It is nought, it is worthless!" saith the buyer; but when he has gone his way, then he boasteth. 15 There is gold and a multitude of rubies, but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel. 16 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger; and take a pledge of him for a strange woman. 17 The bread of deceit is sweet to a man, but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel. 18 Every purpose is established by counsel, but only with good advice make war. 19 He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets; therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips. 20 Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness. 21 An inheritance may be gotten hastily in the beginning, but the end thereof shall not be blessed.
