Proverbs 17

HNV 1 Better is a dry morsel with quietness, Than a house full of feasting with strife. NIV 1 Better a dry crust with peace and quiet than a house full of feasting, with strife. HNV 2 A servant who deals wisely will rule over a son who causes shame, And shall have a part in the inheritance among the brothers. NIV 2 A prudent servant will rule over a disgraceful son and will share the inheritance as one of the family. HNV 3 The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold, But the LORD tests the hearts. NIV 3 The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but the LORD tests the heart. HNV 4 An evil-doer gives heed to wicked lips. A liar gives ear to a mischievous tongue. NIV 4 A wicked person listens to deceitful lips; a liar pays attention to a destructive tongue. HNV 5 Whoever mocks the poor reproaches his Maker. He who is glad at calamity shall not be unpunished. NIV 5 Whoever mocks the poor shows contempt for their Maker; whoever gloats over disaster will not go unpunished. HNV 6 Children's children are the crown of old men; The glory of children are their parents. NIV 6 Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children. HNV 7 Arrogant speech isn't fitting for a fool, Much less do lying lips fit a prince. NIV 7 Eloquent lips are unsuited to a godless fool— how much worse lying lips to a ruler! HNV 8 A bribe is a precious stone in the eyes of him who gives it; Wherever he turns, he prospers. NIV 8 A bribe is seen as a charm by the one who gives it; they think success will come at every turn. HNV 9 He who covers an offense promotes love; But he who repeats a matter separates best friends. NIV 9 Whoever would foster love covers over an offense, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends. HNV 10 A rebuke enters deeper into one who has understanding Than a hundred lashes into a fool. NIV 10 A rebuke impresses a discerning person more than a hundred lashes a fool. HNV 11 An evil man seeks only rebellion; Therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him. NIV 11 Evildoers foster rebellion against God; the messenger of death will be sent against them. HNV 12 Let a bear robbed of her cubs meet a man, Rather than a fool in his folly. NIV 12 Better to meet a bear robbed of her cubs than a fool bent on folly. HNV 13 Whoever rewards evil for good, Evil shall not depart from his house. NIV 13 Evil will never leave the house of one who pays back evil for good. HNV 14 The beginning of strife is like breaching a dam, Therefore stop contention before quarreling breaks out. NIV 14 Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out. HNV 15 He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the righteous, Both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD. NIV 15 Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent— the LORD detests them both. HNV 16 Why is there money in the hand of a fool to buy wisdom, Seeing he has no understanding? NIV 16 Why should fools have money in hand to buy wisdom, when they are not able to understand it? HNV 17 A friend loves at all times; And a brother is born for adversity. NIV 17 A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity. HNV 18 A man void of understanding strikes hands, And becomes collateral in the presence of his neighbor. NIV 18 One who has no sense shakes hands in pledge and puts up security for a neighbor. HNV 19 He who loves disobedience loves strife. One who builds a high gate seeks destruction. NIV 19 Whoever loves a quarrel loves sin; whoever builds a high gate invites destruction. HNV 20 One who has a perverse heart doesn't find prosperity, And one who has a deceitful tongue falls into trouble. NIV 20 One whose heart is corrupt does not prosper; one whose tongue is perverse falls into trouble. HNV 21 He who becomes the father of a fool grieves. The father of a fool has no joy. NIV 21 To have a fool for a child brings grief; there is no joy for the parent of a godless fool. HNV 22 A cheerful heart makes good medicine, But a crushed spirit dries up the bones. NIV 22 A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. HNV 23 A wicked man receives a bribe in secret, To pervert the ways of justice. NIV 23 The wicked accept bribes in secret to pervert the course of justice. HNV 24 Wisdom is before the face of one who has understanding, But the eyes of a fool wander to the ends of the eretz. NIV 24 A discerning person keeps wisdom in view, but a fool’s eyes wander to the ends of the earth. HNV 25 A foolish son brings grief to his father, And bitterness to her who bore him. NIV 25 A foolish son brings grief to his father and bitterness to the mother who bore him. HNV 26 Also to punish the righteous is not good, Nor to flog officials for their integrity. NIV 26 If imposing a fine on the innocent is not good, surely to flog honest officials is not right. HNV 27 He who spares his words has knowledge. He who is even tempered is a man of understanding. NIV 27 The one who has knowledge uses words with restraint, and whoever has understanding is even-tempered. HNV 28 Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is counted wise. When he shuts his lips, he is thought to be discerning. NIV 28 Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues.
