Proverbs 18

1  Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.

2  A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.

3  When the wicked cometh, then cometh also contempt, and with ignominy reproach.

4  The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.

5  It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment.

6  A fool's lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for strokes.

7  A fool's mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.

8  The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.

9  He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.

10  The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
