Proverbs 12

YLT 1 Whoso is loving instruction, is loving knowledge, And whoso is hating reproof [is] brutish. NIV 1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but whoever hates correction is stupid. YLT 2 The good bringeth forth favour from Jehovah, And the man of wicked devices He condemneth. NIV 2 Good people obtain favor from the LORD, but he condemns those who devise wicked schemes. YLT 3 A man is not established by wickedness, And the root of the righteous is not moved. NIV 3 No one can be established through wickedness, but the righteous cannot be uprooted. YLT 4 A virtuous woman [is] a crown to her husband, And as rottenness in his bones [is] one causing shame. NIV 4 A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones. YLT 5 The thoughts of the righteous [are] justice, The counsels of the wicked -- deceit. NIV 5 The plans of the righteous are just, but the advice of the wicked is deceitful. YLT 6 The words of the wicked [are]: `Lay wait for blood,' And the mouth of the upright delivereth them. NIV 6 The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood, but the speech of the upright rescues them. YLT 7 Overthrow the wicked, and they are not, And the house of the righteous standeth. NIV 7 The wicked are overthrown and are no more, but the house of the righteous stands firm. YLT 8 According to his wisdom is a man praised, And the perverted of heart becometh despised. NIV 8 A person is praised according to their prudence, and one with a warped mind is despised. YLT 9 Better [is] the lightly esteemed who hath a servant, Than the self-honoured who lacketh bread. NIV 9 Better to be a nobody and yet have a servant than pretend to be somebody and have no food. YLT 10 The righteous knoweth the life of his beast, And the mercies of the wicked [are] cruel. NIV 10 The righteous care for the needs of their animals, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel. YLT 11 Whoso is tilling the ground is satisfied [with] bread, And whoso is pursuing vanities is lacking heart, NIV 11 Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense. YLT 12 The wicked hath desired the net of evil doers, And the root of the righteous giveth. NIV 12 The wicked desire the stronghold of evildoers, but the root of the righteous endures. YLT 13 In transgression of the lips [is] the snare of the wicked, And the righteous goeth out from distress. NIV 13 Evildoers are trapped by their sinful talk, and so the innocent escape trouble. YLT 14 From the fruit of the mouth [is] one satisfied [with] good, And the deed of man's hands returneth to him. NIV 14 From the fruit of their lips people are filled with good things, and the work of their hands brings them reward. YLT 15 The way of a fool [is] right in his own eyes, And whoso is hearkening to counsel [is] wise. NIV 15 The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice. YLT 16 The fool -- in a day is his anger known, And the prudent is covering shame. NIV 16 Fools show their annoyance at once, but the prudent overlook an insult. YLT 17 Whoso uttereth faithfulness declareth righteousness, And a false witness -- deceit. NIV 17 An honest witness tells the truth, but a false witness tells lies. YLT 18 A rash speaker is like piercings of a sword, And the tongue of the wise is healing. NIV 18 The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. YLT 19 The lip of truth is established for ever, And for a moment -- a tongue of falsehood. NIV 19 Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue lasts only a moment. YLT 20 Deceit [is] in the heart of those devising evil, And to those counselling peace [is] joy. NIV 20 Deceit is in the hearts of those who plot evil, but those who promote peace have joy. YLT 21 No iniquity is desired by the righteous, And the wicked have been full of evil. NIV 21 No harm overtakes the righteous, but the wicked have their fill of trouble. YLT 22 An abomination to Jehovah [are] lying lips, And stedfast doers [are] his delight. NIV 22 The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy. YLT 23 A prudent man is concealing knowledge, And the heart of fools proclaimeth folly. NIV 23 The prudent keep their knowledge to themselves, but a fool’s heart blurts out folly. YLT 24 The hand of the diligent ruleth, And slothfulness becometh tributary. NIV 24 Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in forced labor. YLT 25 Sorrow in the heart of a man boweth down, And a good word maketh him glad. NIV 25 Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up. YLT 26 The righteous searcheth his companion, And the way of the wicked causeth them to err. NIV 26 The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray. YLT 27 The slothful roasteth not his hunting, And the wealth of a diligent man is precious. NIV 27 The lazy do not roast any game, but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt. YLT 28 In the path of righteousness [is] life, And in the way of [that] path [is] no death! NIV 28 In the way of righteousness there is life; along that path is immortality.
