Proverbs 14:1-7

1 The wisest of women builds up her home, but a stupid one tears it down with her own hands.
2 Whoever lives right fears the LORD, but a person who is devious in his ways despises him.
3 Because of a stubborn fool's words a whip is lifted against him, but wise people are protected by their speech.
4 Where there are no cattle, the feeding trough is empty, but the strength of an ox produces plentiful harvests.
5 A trustworthy witness does not lie, but a dishonest witness breathes lies.
6 A mocker searches for wisdom without finding it, but knowledge comes easily to a person who has understanding.
7 Stay away from a fool, because you will not receive knowledge from his lips.
