Proverbs 18:2-12 (The Webster Bible)

View In My Bible
2 A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may reveal 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 well-spring 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 strokes. 7 A fool's mouth [is] his destruction, and his lips [are] the snare of his soul. 8 The words of a tale-bearer [are] as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly. 9 He also that is slothful in his work is 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 strong city, and as a high wall in his own conceit. 12 Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honor [is] humility.
