Proverbs 12

1  Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish.

2  A good man obtaineth favour of the LORD: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn.

3  A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.

4  A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.

5  The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.

6  The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.

7  The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.

8  A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.

9  He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread.

10  A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.
