Proverbs 19

NLT 1 Better to be poor and honest than to be dishonest and a fool. NIV 1 Better the poor whose walk is blameless than a fool whose lips are perverse. NLT 2 Enthusiasm without knowledge is no good; haste makes mistakes. NIV 2 Desire without knowledge is not good— how much more will hasty feet miss the way! NLT 3 People ruin their lives by their own foolishness and then are angry at the LORD . NIV 3 A person’s own folly leads to their ruin, yet their heart rages against the LORD. NLT 4 Wealth makes many “friends”; poverty drives them all away. NIV 4 Wealth attracts many friends, but even the closest friend of the poor person deserts them. NLT 5 A false witness will not go unpunished, nor will a liar escape. NIV 5 A false witness will not go unpunished, and whoever pours out lies will not go free. NLT 6 Many seek favors from a ruler; everyone is the friend of a person who gives gifts! NIV 6 Many curry favor with a ruler, and everyone is the friend of one who gives gifts. NLT 7 The relatives of the poor despise them; how much more will their friends avoid them! Though the poor plead with them, their friends are gone. NIV 7 The poor are shunned by all their relatives— how much more do their friends avoid them! Though the poor pursue them with pleading, they are nowhere to be found. NLT 8 To acquire wisdom is to love yourself; people who cherish understanding will prosper. NIV 8 The one who gets wisdom loves life; the one who cherishes understanding will soon prosper. NLT 9 A false witness will not go unpunished, and a liar will be destroyed. NIV 9 A false witness will not go unpunished, and whoever pours out lies will perish. NLT 10 It isn’t right for a fool to live in luxury or for a slave to rule over princes! NIV 10 It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury— how much worse for a slave to rule over princes! NLT 11 Sensible people control their temper; they earn respect by overlooking wrongs. NIV 11 A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense. NLT 12 The king’s anger is like a lion’s roar, but his favor is like dew on the grass. NIV 12 A king’s rage is like the roar of a lion, but his favor is like dew on the grass. NLT 13 A foolish child is a calamity to a father; a quarrelsome wife is as annoying as constant dripping. NIV 13 A foolish child is a father’s ruin, and a quarrelsome wife is like the constant dripping of a leaky roof. NLT 14 Fathers can give their sons an inheritance of houses and wealth, but only the LORD can give an understanding wife. NIV 14 Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the LORD. NLT 15 Lazy people sleep soundly, but idleness leaves them hungry. NIV 15 Laziness brings on deep sleep, and the shiftless go hungry. NLT 16 Keep the commandments and keep your life; despising them leads to death. NIV 16 Whoever keeps commandments keeps their life, but whoever shows contempt for their ways will die. NLT 17 If you help the poor, you are lending to the LORD — and he will repay you! NIV 17 Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done. NLT 18 Discipline your children while there is hope. Otherwise you will ruin their lives. NIV 18 Discipline your children, for in that there is hope; do not be a willing party to their death. NLT 19 Hot-tempered people must pay the penalty. If you rescue them once, you will have to do it again. NIV 19 A hot-tempered person must pay the penalty; rescue them, and you will have to do it again. NLT 20 Get all the advice and instruction you can, so you will be wise the rest of your life. NIV 20 Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise. NLT 21 You can make many plans, but the LORD ’s purpose will prevail. NIV 21 Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails. NLT 22 Loyalty makes a person attractive. It is better to be poor than dishonest. NIV 22 What a person desires is unfailing love ; better to be poor than a liar. NLT 23 Fear of the LORD leads to life, bringing security and protection from harm. NIV 23 The fear of the LORD leads to life; then one rests content, untouched by trouble. NLT 24 Lazy people take food in their hand but don’t even lift it to their mouth. NIV 24 A sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not even bring it back to his mouth! NLT 25 If you punish a mocker, the simpleminded will learn a lesson; if you correct the wise, they will be all the wiser. NIV 25 Flog a mocker, and the simple will learn prudence; rebuke the discerning, and they will gain knowledge. NLT 26 Children who mistreat their father or chase away their mother are an embarrassment and a public disgrace. NIV 26 Whoever robs their father and drives out their mother is a child who brings shame and disgrace. NLT 27 If you stop listening to instruction, my child, you will turn your back on knowledge. NIV 27 Stop listening to instruction, my son, and you will stray from the words of knowledge. NLT 28 A corrupt witness makes a mockery of justice; the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil. NIV 28 A corrupt witness mocks at justice, and the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil. NLT 29 Punishment is made for mockers, and the backs of fools are made to be beaten. NIV 29 Penalties are prepared for mockers, and beatings for the backs of fools.
