Proverbs 18
New Living Translation
18Unfriendly people care only about themselves; they lash out at common sense.H8378H6504H1245H1566H8454 2Fools have no interest in understanding; they only want to air their own opinions.H3684H2654H8394H3820H1540 3Doing wrong leads to disgrace, and scandalous behavior brings contempt.H7563H935H935H937H7036H2781 4Wise words are like deep waters; wisdom flows from the wise like a bubbling brook.H1697H376H6310H6013H4325H4726H2451H5042H5158 5It is not right to acquit the guilty or deny justice to the innocent.H2896H5375H6440H7563H5186H6662H4941 6Fools’ words get them into constant quarrels; they are asking for a beating.H3684H8193H935H7379H6310H7121H4112 7The mouths of fools are their ruin; they trap themselves with their lips.H3684H6310H4288H8193H4170H5315 8Rumors are dainty morsels that sink deep into one’s heart.H1697H5372H3859H3381H2315H990 9A lazy person is as bad as someone who destroys things.H7503H4399H251H1167H7843 10The name of the Lord is a strong fortress; the godly run to him and are safe.H8034H3068H5797H4026H6662H7323H7682 11The rich think of their wealth as a strong defense; they imagine it to be a high wall of safety.H6223H1952H5797H7151H7682H2346H4906 12Haughtiness goes before destruction; humility precedes honor.H6440H7667H3820H376H1361H6440H3519H6038 13Spouting off before listening to the facts is both shameful and foolish.H7725H1697H8085H200H3639 14The human spirit can endure a sick body, but who can bear a crushed spirit?H7307H376H3557H4245H5218H7307H5375 15Intelligent people are always ready to learn. Their ears are open for knowledge.H3820H995H7069H1847H241H2450H1245H1847 16Giving a gift can open doors; it gives access to important people!H120H4976H7337H5148H6440H1419 17The first to speak in court sounds right—until the cross-examination begins.H7223H7379H6662H7453H935H935H2713 18Flipping a coin can end arguments; it settles disputes between powerful opponents.H1486H4079H7673H6504H6099 19An offended friend is harder to win back than a fortified city. Arguments separate friends like a gate locked with bars.H251H6586H5797H7151H4079H4066H1280H759 20Wise words satisfy like a good meal; the right words bring satisfaction.H376H990H7646H6529H6310H8393H8193H7646 21The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.H4194H2416H3027H3956H157H398H6529 22The man who finds a wife finds a treasure, and he receives favor from the Lord.H4672H802H4672H2896H6329H7522H3068 23The poor plead for mercy; the rich answer with insults.H7326H1696H8469H6223H6030H5794 24There are “friends” who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.H376H7453H7489H3426H157H1695H251
