Proverbs 14:18-28 TMBA

18 The simple inherit folly, but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.
19 The evil bow before the good, the wicked at the gates of the righteous.
20 The poor is hated even by his own neighbor, but the rich hath many friends.
21 He that despiseth his neighbor sinneth, but he that hath mercy on the poor, happy is he.
22 Do they not err that devise evil? But mercy and truth shall be to them that devise good.
23 In all labor there is profit, but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.
24 The crown of the wise is their riches, but the foolishness of fools is folly.
25 A truthful witness delivereth souls, but a deceitful witness speaketh lies.
26 In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence, and His children shall have a place of refuge.
27 The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life to depart from the snares of death.
28 In a multitude of people is the honor of the king, but the lack of people is the destruction of the prince.
