Proverbs 13:13

13 Ignore the Word and suffer; honor God's commands and grow rich.

Proverbs 13:13 In-Context

11 Easy come, easy go, but steady diligence pays off.
12 Unrelenting disappointment leaves you heartsick, but a sudden good break can turn life around.
13 Ignore the Word and suffer; honor God's commands and grow rich.
14 The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, so, no more drinking from death-tainted wells!
15 Sound thinking makes for gracious living, but liars walk a rough road.
