Proverbs 13

13:1 A wise son--the instruction of a father, And a scorner--he hath not heard rebuke.  13:2 From the fruit of the mouth a man eateth good, And the soul of the treacherous--violence.  13:3 Whoso is keeping his mouth, is keeping his soul, Whoso is opening wide his lips--ruin to him!  13:4 The soul of the slothful is desiring, and hath not. And the soul of the diligent is made fat.  13:5 A false word the righteous hateth, And the wicked causeth abhorrence, and is confounded.  13:6 Righteousness keepeth him who is perfect in the way, And wickedness overthroweth a sin offering.  13:7 There is who is making himself rich, and hath nothing, Who is making himself poor, and wealth [is] abundant.  13:8 The ransom of a man's life [are] his riches, And the poor hath not heard rebuke.  13:9 The light of the righteous rejoiceth, And the lamp of the wicked is extinguished.  13:10 A vain man through pride causeth debate, And with the counselled [is] wisdom.  13:11 Wealth from vanity becometh little, And whoso is gathering by the hand becometh great.  13:12 Hope prolonged is making the heart sick, And a tree of life [is] the coming desire.  13:13 Whoso is despising the Word is destroyed for it, And whoso is fearing the Command is repayed.  13:14 The law of the wise [is] a fountain of life, To turn aside from snares of death.  13:15 Good understanding giveth grace, And the way of the treacherous [is] hard.  13:16 Every prudent one dealeth with knowledge, And a fool spreadeth out folly.  13:17 A wicked messenger falleth into evil, And a faithful ambassador is healing.  13:18 Whoso is refusing instruction--poverty and shame, And whoso is observing reproof is honoured.  13:19 A desire accomplished is sweet to the soul, And an abomination to fools [is] : Turn from evil.  13:20 Whoso is walking with wise men is wise, And a companion of fools suffereth evil.  13:21 Evil pursueth sinners, And good recompenseth the righteous.  13:22 A good man causeth sons' sons to inherit, And laid up for the righteous [is] the sinner's wealth.  13:23 Abundance of food--the tillage of the poor, And substance is consumed without judgment.  13:24 Whoso is sparing his rod is hating his son, And whoso is loving him hath hastened him chastisement.  13:25 The righteous is eating to the satiety of his soul, And the belly of the wicked lacketh!
