Proverbs 17:1-10

1 Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrificesa with strife.
2 A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causeth shame, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren.
3 The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD trieth the hearts.
4 A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.
5 Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.b
6 Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.
7 Excellentc speech becometh not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince.
8 A gift is as a preciousd stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth.
10 A reproof enterethf more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.
