Proverbs 14:11-21

11 The houses of wicked people will be destroyed, but the tents of decent people will continue to expand.
12 There is a way that seems right to a person, but eventually it ends in death.
13 Even while laughing a heart can ache, and joy can end in grief.
14 A heart that turns [from God] becomes bored with its own ways, but a good person is satisfied with God's ways.
15 A gullible person believes anything, but a sensible person watches his step.
16 A wise person is cautious and turns away from evil, but a fool is careless and overconfident.
17 A short-tempered person acts stupidly, and a person who plots evil is hated.
18 Gullible people are gifted with stupidity, but sensible people are crowned with knowledge.
19 Evil people will bow to good people. Wicked people will bow at the gates of a righteous person.
20 A poor person is hated even by his neighbor, but a rich person is loved by many.
21 Whoever despises his neighbor sins, but blessed is the one who is kind to humble people.
