Proverbs 13

RHE 1 A wise son heareth the doctrine of his father: but he that is a scorner, heareth not when he is reproved. NIV 1 A wise son heeds his father’s instruction, but a mocker does not respond to rebukes. RHE 2 Of the fruit of his own month shall a man be filled with good things: but the soul of transgressors is wicked. NIV 2 From the fruit of their lips people enjoy good things, but the unfaithful have an appetite for violence. RHE 3 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his soul: but he that hath no guard on his speech shall meet with evils. NIV 3 Those who guard their lips preserve their lives, but those who speak rashly will come to ruin. RHE 4 The sluggard willeth, and willeth not: but the soul of them that work, shall be made fat. NIV 4 A sluggard’s appetite is never filled, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied. RHE 5 The just shall hate a lying word: but the wicked confoundeth, and shall be confounded. NIV 5 The righteous hate what is false, but the wicked make themselves a stench and bring shame on themselves. RHE 6 Justice keepeth the way of the innocent: but wickedness overthroweth the sinner. NIV 6 Righteousness guards the person of integrity, but wickedness overthrows the sinner. RHE 7 One is as it were rich, when he hath nothing and another is as it were poor, when he hath great riches. NIV 7 One person pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth. RHE 8 The ransom of a man’s life are his riches: but he that is poor, beareth not reprehension. NIV 8 A person’s riches may ransom their life, but the poor cannot respond to threatening rebukes. RHE 9 The light of the just giveth joy: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out. NIV 9 The light of the righteous shines brightly, but the lamp of the wicked is snuffed out. RHE 10 Among the proud there are always contentions: but they that do all things with counsel, are ruled by wisdom. NIV 10 Where there is strife, there is pride, but wisdom is found in those who take advice. RHE 11 Substance got in haste shall be diminished: but that which by little and little is gathered with the hand, shall increase. NIV 11 Dishonest money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow. RHE 12 Hope that is deferred afflicteth the soul: desire when it cometh, is a tree of life. NIV 12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. RHE 13 Whosoever speaketh ill of any thing, bindeth himself for the time to come: but he that feareth the commandment, shall dwell in peace. Deceitful souls go astray in sins: the just are merciful, and shew mercy. NIV 13 Whoever scorns instruction will pay for it, but whoever respects a command is rewarded. RHE 14 The law of the wise is a fountain of life, that he may decline from the ruin of death. NIV 14 The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, turning a person from the snares of death. RHE 15 Good instruction shall give grace: in the way of scorners is a deep pit. NIV 15 Good judgment wins favor, but the way of the unfaithful leads to their destruction. RHE 16 The prudent man doth all things with counsel: but he that is a fool, layeth open his folly. NIV 16 All who are prudent act with knowledge, but fools expose their folly. RHE 17 The messenger of the wicked shall fall into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health. NIV 17 A wicked messenger falls into trouble, but a trustworthy envoy brings healing. RHE 18 Poverty and shame to him that refuseth instruction: but he that yieldeth to reproof shall be glorified. NIV 18 Whoever disregards discipline comes to poverty and shame, but whoever heeds correction is honored. RHE 19 The desire that is accomplished, delighteth the soul: fools hate them that flee from evil things. NIV 19 A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul, but fools detest turning from evil. RHE 20 He that walketh with the wise, shall be wise: a friend of fools shall become like to them. NIV 20 Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm. RHE 21 Evil pursueth sinners: and to the just good shall be repaid. NIV 21 Trouble pursues the sinner, but the righteous are rewarded with good things. RHE 22 The good man leaveth heirs, sons, and grandsons: and the substance of the sinner is kept for the just. NIV 22 A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous. RHE 23 Much food is in the tillage of fathers: but for others it is gathered without judgment. NIV 23 An unplowed field produces food for the poor, but injustice sweeps it away. RHE 24 He that spareth the rod, hateth his son: but he that loveth him, correcteth him betimes. NIV 24 Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them. RHE 25 The just eateth and filleth his soul: but the belly of the wicked is never to be filled. NIV 25 The righteous eat to their hearts’ content, but the stomach of the wicked goes hungry.
