Proverbs 17

1  Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife.

2  A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causeth shame, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren.

3  The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD trieth the hearts.

4  A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.

5  Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.

6  Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.

7  Excellent speech becometh not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince.

8  A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth.

9  He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.

10  A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.
