Proverbs 19
New Living Translation
19Better to be poor and honest than to be dishonest and a fool.H2896H7326H1980H8537H6141H8193H3684 2Enthusiasm without knowledge is no good; haste makes mistakes.H5315H1847H2896H213H7272H2398 3People ruin their lives by their own foolishness and then are angry at the Lord.H200H120H5557H1870H3820H2196H3068 4Wealth makes many “friends”; poverty drives them all away.H1952H3254H7227H7453H1800H6504H7453 5A false witness will not go unpunished, nor will a liar escape.H8267H5707H5352H6315H3577H4422 6Many seek favors from a ruler; everyone is the friend of a person who gives gifts!H7227H2470H6440H5081H7453H376H4976 7The relatives of the poor despise them; how much more will their friends avoid them! Though the poor plead with them, their friends are gone.H251H7326H8130H4828H7368H7291H561 8To acquire wisdom is to love oneself; people who cherish understanding will prosper.H7069H3820H157H5315H8104H8394H4672H2896 9A false witness will not go unpunished, and a liar will be destroyed.H8267H5707H5352H6315H3577H6 10It isn’t right for a fool to live in luxury or for a slave to rule over princes!H8588H5000H3684H5650H4910H8269 11Sensible people control their temper; they earn respect by overlooking wrongs.H7922H120H748H639H8597H5674H6588 12The king’s anger is like a lion’s roar, but his favor is like dew on the grass.H4428H2197H5099H3715H7522H2919H6212 13A foolish child is a calamity to a father; a quarrelsome wife is as annoying as constant dripping.H3684H1121H1942H1H4079H802H2956H1812 14Fathers can give their sons an inheritance of houses and wealth, but only the Lord can give an understanding wife.H1004H1952H5159H1H7919H802H3068 15Lazy people sleep soundly, but idleness leaves them hungry.H6103H5307H8639H7423H5315H7456 16Keep the commandments and keep your life; despising them leads to death.H8104H4687H8104H5315H959H1870H4191 17If you help the poor, you are lending to the Lord - and he will repay you!H2603H1800H3867H3068H1576H7999 18Discipline your children while there is hope. Otherwise you will ruin their lives.H3256H1121H3426H8615H5315H5375H4191 19Hot-tempered people must pay the penalty. If you rescue them once, you will have to do it again.H1419H1632H2534H5375H6066H5337H3254 20Get all the advice and instruction you can, so you will be wise the rest of your life.H8085H6098H6901H4148H2449H319 21You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail.H7227H4284H376H3820H6098H3068H6965 22Loyalty makes a person attractive. It is better to be poor than dishonest.H8378H120H2617H7326H2896H376H3577 23Fear of the Lord leads to life, bringing security and protection from harm.H3374H3068H2416H3885H7649H6485H7451 24Lazy people take food in their hand but don’t even lift it to their mouth.H6102H2934H3027H6747H7725H6310H7725 25If you punish a mocker, the simpleminded will learn a lesson; if you correct the wise, they will be all the wiser.H5221H3887H6612H6191H3198H995H995H1847 26Children who mistreat their father or chase away their mother are an embarrassment and a public disgrace.H7703H1H1272H517H1121H954H2659 27If you stop listening to instruction, my child, you will turn your back on knowledge.H2308H1121H8085H4148H7686H561H1847 28A corrupt witness makes a mockery of justice; the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil.H1100H5707H3887H4941H6310H7563H1104H205 29Punishment is made for mockers, and the backs of fools are made to be beaten.H8201H3559H3887H4112H1460H3684
