Proverbs 22
New Living Translation
22Choose a good reputation over great riches; being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold.H8034H977H7227H6239H2896H2580H3701H2091 2The rich and poor have this in common. The Lord made them both.H6223H7326H6298H3068H6213 3A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.H6175H7200H7451H5641H5641H6612H5674H6064 4True humility and fear of the Lord lead to riches, honor, and long life.H6118H6038H3374H3068H6239H3519H2416 5Corrupt people walk a thorny, treacherous road; whoever values life will avoid it.H6791H6341H1870H6141H8104H5315H7368 6Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.H2596H5288H1870H6310H2204H5493 7Just as the rich rule the poor, so the borrower is servant to the lender.H6223H4910H7326H3867H5650H376H3867 8Those who plant injustice will harvest disaster, and their reign of terror will come to an end.H2232H5766H7114H205H7626H5678H3615 9Blessed are those who are generous, because they feed the poor.H2896H5869H1288H5414H3899H1800 10Throw out the mocker, and fighting goes, too. Quarrels and insults will disappear.H1644H3887H4066H3318H1779H7036H7673 11Whoever loves a pure heart and gracious speech will have the king as a friend.H157H2890H2889H3820H2580H8193H4428H7453 12The Lord preserves those with knowledge, but he ruins the plans of the treacherous.H5869H3068H5341H1847H5557H1697H898 13The lazy person claims, “There’s a lion out there! If I go outside, I might be killed!”H6102H559H738H2351H7523H8432H7339 14The mouth of an immoral woman is a dangerous trap; those who make the Lord angry will fall into it.H6310H2114H6013H7745H2194H3068H5307 15A youngster’s heart is filled with foolishness, but physical discipline will drive it far away.H200H7194H3820H5288H7626H4148H7368 16A person who gets ahead by oppressing the poor or by showering gifts on the rich will end in poverty.H6231H1800H7235H5414H6223H4270
