Proverbs 17
New Living Translation
17Better a dry crust eaten in peace than a house filled with feasting—and conflict.H2896H2720H6595H7962H1004H4392H2077H7379 2A wise servant will rule over the master’s disgraceful son and will share the inheritance of the master’s children.H7919H5650H4910H1121H954H2505H5159H8432H251 3Fire tests the purity of silver and gold, but the Lord tests the heart.H4715H3701H3564H2091H3068H974H3826 4Wrongdoers eagerly listen to gossip; liars pay close attention to slander.H7489H7181H205H8193H8267H238H1942H3956 5Those who mock the poor insult their Maker; those who rejoice at the misfortune of others will be punished.H3932H7326H2778H6213H8056H343H5352 6Grandchildren are the crowning glory of the aged; parents are the pride of their children.H1121H1121H5850H2205H8597H1121H1 7Eloquent words are not fitting for a fool; even less are lies fitting for a ruler.H3499H8193H5000H5036H8267H8193H5081 8A bribe is like a lucky charm; whoever gives one will prosper!H7810H2580H68H5869H1167H6437H7919 9Love prospers when a fault is forgiven, but dwelling on it separates close friends.H3680H6588H1245H160H8138H1697H6504H441 10A single rebuke does more for a person of understanding than a hundred lashes on the back of a fool.H1606H5181H995H3967H5221H3684 11Evil people are eager for rebellion, but they will be severely punished.H7451H1245H4805H394H4397H7971 12It is safer to meet a bear robbed of her cubs than to confront a fool caught in foolishness.H1677H7909H6298H376H408H3684H200 13If you repay good with evil, evil will never leave your house.H7725H7451H2896H7451H4185H4185H1004 14Starting a quarrel is like opening a floodgate, so stop before a dispute breaks out.H7225H4066H6362H4325H5203H7379H6440H1566 15Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent—both are detestable to the Lord.H6663H7563H7561H6662H8147H8441H3068 16It is senseless to pay tuition to educate a fool, since he has no heart for learning.H4242H3027H3684H7069H2451H3820 17A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need.H7453H157H6256H251H3205H6869 18It’s poor judgment to guarantee another person’s debt or put up security for a friend.H120H2638H3820H8628H3709H6148H6161H6440H7453 19Anyone who loves to quarrel loves sin; anyone who trusts in high walls invites disaster.H157H6588H157H4683H1361H6607H1245H7667 20The crooked heart will not prosper; the lying tongue tumbles into trouble.H6141H3820H4672H2896H2015H3956H5307H7451 21It is painful to be the parent of a fool; there is no joy for the father of a rebel.H3205H3684H8424H1H5036H8055 22A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.H8056H3820H3190H1456H5218H7307H3001H1634 23The wicked take secret bribes to pervert the course of justice.H7563H3947H7810H2436H5186H734H4941 24Sensible people keep their eyes glued on wisdom, but a fool’s eyes wander to the ends of the earth.H2451H6440H995H5869H3684H7097H776 25Foolish children bring grief to their father and bitterness to the one who gave them birth.H3684H1121H3708H1H4470H3205 26It is wrong to punish the godly for being good or to flog leaders for being honest.H6064H6662H2896H5221H5081H3476 27A truly wise person uses few words; a person with understanding is even-tempered.H3045H1847H2820H561H376H8394H3368H7119H7307 28Even fools are thought wise when they keep silent; with their mouths shut, they seem intelligent.H191H2790H2803H2450H331H8193H995
