Proverbs 13 (KJV)

1 A wise son heareth his father's instruction: but a scorner (hypocrite) heareth not rebuke (strong correction).




2 A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors (sinners, wicked) 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 (sickening), 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 (compensation) of a man's life are his riches: but the poor heareth not rebuke (strong correction).





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





10 Only by pride cometh contention (heated disagreement): but with the well advised is wisdom.






11 Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.






12 Hope deferred (postponed) maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.






13 Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.






14 The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.




15 Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors (violating God's laws) is hard.





16 Every prudent (well advised) man dealeth with knowledge: but a fool layeth (admits guilt) open his folly (lack of good sense).





17 A wicked messenger falleth into mischief (evil): but a faithful ambassador (minister) is health.






18 Poverty (Hardship) and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof (criticism) shall be honoured.




19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination (curse) to fools to depart from evil.





20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.




21 Evil pursueth sinners: but to the righteous good shall be repayed.




22 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.





23 Much food is in the tillage (profit) of the poor: but there is that is destroyed for want of judgment.





24 He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth (discipline) him betimes (occasionally).




25 The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want.
