Proverbs 19:17-29

17 Kindness to the poor is a loan to the Lord, and He will give a reward to the lender.a
18 Discipline your son while there is hope; don't be intent on killing him.b c
19 A person with great anger bears the penalty; if you rescue him, you'll have to do it again.d
20 Listen to counsel and receive instruction so that you may be wise in later life.e f
21 Many plans are in a man's heart, but the Lord's decree will prevail.g
22 A man's desire should be loyalty to the covenant; better to be a poor man than a perjurer.h
23 The fear of the Lord leads to life; one will sleep at nighti without danger.j
24 The slacker buries his hand in the bowl; he doesn't even bring it back to his mouth.k
25 Strike a mocker, and the inexperienced learn a lesson; rebuke the discerning, and he gains knowledge.l
26 The one who assaults his father and evicts his mother is a disgraceful and shameful son.
27 If you stop listening to instruction, my son, you will stray from the words of knowledge.
28 A worthless witness mocks justice, and a wicked mouth swallows iniquity.
29 Judgments are prepared for mockers, and beatings for the backs of fools.m
