Proverbs 19:13-23

13 A foolish son is his father's ruin,a and a wife's nagging is an endless dripping.b
14 A house and wealth are inherited from fathers, but a sensible wife is from the Lord.
15 Laziness induces deep sleep, and a lazy person will go hungry.c
16 The one who keeps commands preserves himself; one who disregardsd his ways will die.e
17 Kindness to the poor is a loan to the Lord, and He will give a reward to the lender.f
18 Discipline your son while there is hope; don't be intent on killing him.g h
19 A person with great anger bears the penalty; if you rescue him, you'll have to do it again.i
20 Listen to counsel and receive instruction so that you may be wise in later life.j k
21 Many plans are in a man's heart, but the Lord's decree will prevail.l
22 A man's desire should be loyalty to the covenant; better to be a poor man than a perjurer.m
23 The fear of the Lord leads to life; one will sleep at nightn without danger.o
