Proverbs 16:13-23 (The Webster Bible)

View In My Bible
13 Righteous lips [are] the delight of kings; and they love him that speaketh right. 14 The wrath of a king [is as] messengers of death: but a wise man will pacify it. 15 In the light of a king's countenance [is] life; and his favor [is] as a cloud of the latter rain. 16 How much better [is it] to get wisdom than gold? and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver? 17 The highway of the upright [is] to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul. 18 Pride [goeth] before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. 19 Better [it is to be] of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud. 20 He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoever trusteth in the LORD, happy [is] he. 21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning. 22 Understanding [is] a well-spring of life to him that hath it: but the instruction of fools [is] folly. 23 The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.
