Proverbs 14
New Living Translation
14A wise woman builds her home, but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands.H2454H802H1129H1004H200H2040H3027 2Those who follow the right path fear the Lord; those who take the wrong path despise him.H1980H3476H3373H3068H3868H1870H959 3A fool’s proud talk becomes a rod that beats him, but the words of the wise keep them safe.H6310H191H2415H1346H8193H2450H8104 4Without oxen a stable stays clean, but you need a strong ox for a large harvest.H504H18H1249H7230H8393H3581H7794 5An honest witness does not lie; a false witness breathes lies.H529H5707H3577H8267H5707H6315H3576 6A mocker seeks wisdom and never finds it, but knowledge comes easily to those with understanding.H3887H1245H2451H1847H7043H995 7Stay away from fools, for you won’t find knowledge on their lips.H3212H5048H3684H376H3045H8193H1847 8The prudent understand where they are going, but fools deceive themselves.H2451H6175H995H1870H200H3684H4820 9Fools make fun of guilt, but the godly acknowledge it and seek reconciliation.H191H3887H817H3477H7522 10Each heart knows its own bitterness, and no one else can fully share its joy.H3820H3045H5315H4787H2114H6148H8057 11The house of the wicked will be destroyed, but the tent of the godly will flourish.H1004H7563H8045H168H3477H6524 12There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death.H3426H1870H3477H6440H376H319H1870H4194 13Laughter can conceal a heavy heart, but when the laughter ends, the grief remains.H7814H3820H3510H319H8057H8424 14Backsliders get what they deserve; good people receive their reward.H5472H3820H7646H1870H2896H376 15Only simpletons believe everything they’re told! The prudent carefully consider their steps.H6612H539H1697H6175H995H838 16The wise are cautious and avoid danger; fools plunge ahead with reckless confidence.H2450H3373H5493H7451H3684H5674H982 17Short-tempered people do foolish things, and schemers are hated.H7116H639H6213H200H376H4209H8130 18Simpletons are clothed with foolishness, but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.H6612H5157H200H6175H3803H1847 19Evil people will bow before good people; the wicked will bow at the gates of the godly.H7451H7817H6440H2896H7563H8179H6662 20The poor are despised even by their neighbors, while the rich have many “friends.”H7326H8130H7453H6223H7227H157 21It is a sin to belittle one’s neighbor; blessed are those who help the poor.H936H7453H2398H2603H6035H6041H835 22If you plan to do evil, you will be lost; if you plan to do good, you will receive unfailing love and faithfulness.H8582H2790H7451H2617H571H2790H2896 23Work brings profit, but mere talk leads to poverty!H6089H4195H1697H8193H4270 24Wealth is a crown for the wise; the effort of fools yields only foolishness.H5850H2450H6239H200H3684H200 25A truthful witness saves lives, but a false witness is a traitor.H571H5707H5337H5315H4820H6315H3577 26Those who fear the Lord are secure; he will be a refuge for their children.H3374H3068H5797H4009H1121H4268 27Fear of the Lord is a life-giving fountain; it offers escape from the snares of death.H3374H3068H4726H2416H5493H4170H4194 28A growing population is a king’s glory; a prince without subjects has nothing.H7230H5971H4428H1927H657H3816H4288H7333 29People with understanding control their anger; a hot temper shows great foolishness.H750H639H7227H8394H7116H7307H7311H200 30A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body; jealousy is like cancer in the bones.H4832H3820H2416H1320H7068H7538H6106 31Those who oppress the poor insult their Maker, but helping the poor honors him.H6231H1800H2778H6213H3513H2603H34 32The wicked are crushed by disaster, but the godly have a refuge when they die.H7563H1760H7451H6662H2620H4194 33Wisdom is enshrined in an understanding heart; wisdom is not found among fools.H2451H5117H3820H995H7130H3684H3045 34Godliness makes a nation great, but sin is a disgrace to any people.H6666H7311H1471H2403H2617H3816 35A king rejoices in wise servants but is angry with those who disgrace him.H4428H7522H7919H5650H5678H954
