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.
