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