Chapter 13

1


 

  A wise son heareth the doctrine of his father: but he that is a scorner, beareth not when he is reproved.  

 

 


2


 

  Of the fruit of his own mouth shall a man be filled with good things: but the soul of transgressors is wicked.  

 

 


3


 

  He that keepeth his mouth, keepeth his soul: but he that hath no guard on his speech shall meet with evils.  

 

 


4


 

  The sluggard willeth and willeth not: but the soul of them that work, shall be made fat.  

 

 


5


 

  The just shall hate a lying word: but the wicked confoundeth, and shall be confounded.  

 

 


6


 

  Justice keepeth the way of the innocent: but wickedness overthroweth the sinner.  

 

 


7


 

  One is as it were rich, when he hath nothing: and another is as it were poor, when he hath great riches.  

 

 


8


 

  The ransom of a man's life are his riches: but he that is poor beareth not reprehension.  

 

 


9


 

  The light of the just giveth joy: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.  

 

 


10


 

  Among the proud there are always contentions: but they that do all things with counsel, are ruled by wisdom.  

 

 


11


 

  Substance got in haste shall be diminished: but that which by little and little is gathered with the hand shall increase.  

 

 


12


 

  Hope that is deferred afflicteth the soul: desire when it cometh is a tree of life.  

 

 


13


 

  Whosoever speaketh ill of any thing, bindeth himself for the time to come: but he that feareth the commandment, shall dwell in peace. Deceitful souls go astray in sins: the just are merciful, and shew mercy.  

 

 


14


 

  The law of the wise is a fountain of life, that he may decline from the ruin of death.  

 

 


15


 

  Good instruction shall give grace: in the way of scorners is a deep pit.  

 

 


16


 

  The prudent mall doth all things with counsel: but he that is a fool, layeth open his folly.  

 

 


17


 

  The messenger of the wicked shall fall into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health.  

 

 


18


 

  Poverty and shame to him that refuseth instruction: but he that yieldeth to reproof, shall be glorified.  

 

 


19


 

  The desire that is accomplished, delighteth the soul: fools hate them that flee from evil things.  

 

 


20


 

  He that walketh with the wise, shall be wise: a friend of fools shall become like to them.  

 

 


21


 

  21Evil pursueth sinners: and to the just good shall be repaid.  

 

 


22


 

  The good man leaveth heirs, sons, and grandsons: and the substance of the sinner is kept for the just.  

 

 


23


 

  Much food is in the tillage of fathers: but for others it is gathered with out judgment.  

 

 


24


 

  He that spareth the rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him correcteth him betimes.  

 

 


25


 

  The just eateth and filleth his soul: but the belly of the wicked is never to be filled.
