Proverbs Chapter 10 Vs 1-22
1The Proverbs of Solomon:
A wise son gives his father joy,
but a foolish son is a grief to his mother.* a
2Ill-gotten treasures profit nothing,
but justice saves from death.* b
3The LORD does not let the just go hungry,
but the craving of the wicked he thwarts.*
4The slack hand impoverishes,
but the busy hand brings riches.c
5A son who gathers in summer is a credit;
a son who slumbers during harvest, a disgrace.
6Blessings are for the head of the just;
but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.*
7The memory of the just serves as blessing,
but the name of the wicked will rot.*
8A wise heart accepts commands,
but a babbling fool will be overthrown.*
9Whoever walks honestly walks securely,
but one whose ways are crooked will fare badly.
10One who winks at a fault causes trouble,
but one who frankly reproves promotes peace.
11The mouth of the just is a fountain of life,
but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.
12Hatred stirs up disputes,
d but love covers all offenses.*
13On the lips of the intelligent is found wisdom,
but a rod for the back of one without sense.*
14The wise store up knowledge,
but the mouth of a fool is imminent ruin.
15The wealth of the rich is their strong city;
the ruin of the poor is their poverty.*
16The labor of the just leads to life,
the gains of the wicked, to futility.* e
17Whoever follows instruction is in the path to life,
but whoever disregards reproof goes astray.f
18Whoever conceals hatred has lying lips,
and whoever spreads slander is a fool.
19Where words are many, sin is not wanting;
but those who restrain their lips do well.g
20Choice silver is the tongue of the just;
the heart of the wicked is of little worth.
21The lips of the just nourish many,
but fools die for want of sense.*
22It is the LORD's blessing that brings wealth,h
and no effort can substitute for it.*
