Proverbs 17:13-23

13 Whoever rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.
14 The beginning of strife [is as] when one letteth out water: therefore withdraw from contention, before it be meddled with.
15 He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both [are] abomination to the LORD.
16 Why [is there] a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing [he hath] no heart [to it]?
17 A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
18 A man void of understanding striketh hands, [and] becometh surety in the presence of his friend.
19 He loveth transgression that loveth strife: [and] he that exalteth his gate seeketh destruction.
20 He that hath a froward heart findeth no good: and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief.
21 He that begetteth a fool [doeth it] to his sorrow: and the father of a fool hath no joy.
22 A merry heart doeth good [like] a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
23 A wicked [man] taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.
