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 loathsome, 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 [are] his riches: but the poor heareth not rebuke. 

 

 


9

 

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

 

 


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 labour shall increase. 

 

 


12

 

 Hope deferred 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 [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 ambassador [is] health. 

 

 


18

 

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

 

 


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 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 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.
