Proverbs 13

1  A wise son heareth his father's instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke.

2  A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.

3  He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.

4  The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.

5  A righteous man hateth lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame.

6  Righteousness keepeth him that is upright in the way: but wickedness overthroweth the sinner.

7  There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.

8  The ransom of a man's life are his riches: but the poor heareth not rebuke.

9  The light of the righteous rejoiceth: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.

10  Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.
