Chapter 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 lothsome, 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 is his riches: but the poor heareth not rebuke. 

 

 


9

 

  The light of the righteous rejoiceth: but the lamp of the wicked shall be extinguished. 

 

 


10

 

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

 

 


11

 

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

 

 


12

 

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

 

 


13

 

  Whoever 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 favor: but the way of transgressors is hard. 

 

 


16

 

  Every prudent man dealeth with knowledge: but a fool layeth open his folly. 

 

 


17

 

  A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful embassador is health. 

 

 


18

 

  Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honored. 

 

 


19

 

  The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination 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 repaid. 

 

 


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 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 him betimes. 

 

 


25

 

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