Proverbs 14 - 24
If sinners entice you, do not consent. Wisdom calls aloud. The complacency of fools destroys them.
A gentle answer turns away wrath. The eyes of the LORD are everywhere. Plans fail for lack of counsel. The LORD hears the righteous.
A man plans his way, but the LORD directs his steps. Kings detest evil. Pride goes before destruction. Wisdom is a fountain of life.
A wise servant will rule over a shameful son. Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam. Even a fool seems wise if he keeps silent.
A fool delights in his own opinions. The name of LORD is a strong tower. A gift opens the way. The tongue can bring life or death.
Wealth makes friends. A false witness will not go unpunished. A good wife is from the LORD. Whoever helps the poor lends to the LORD.
Wine is a mocker, beer a brawler. Even a child is known by his deeds. The LORD hates false weights. It is a snare to make rash vows.
He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.
A good name is better than riches. Train a child and he will not go astray. Incline your ear and apply your heart to my teaching.
Do not wear yourself out to get rich. Do not move a boundary marker. Buy the truth, and do not sell it. Do not linger long over wine. PROVERBS 24 Do not envy the wicked. Wisdom is sweet to the soul. Fear the LORD and the king, my son. I saw thorns in the field of the sluggard.
