Proverbs 20
New Living Translation
20Wine produces mockers; alcohol leads to brawls. Those led astray by drink cannot be wise.H3196H3887H7941H1993H7686H2449 2The king’s fury is like a lion’s roar; to rouse his anger is to risk your life.H367H4428H5099H3715H5674H2398H5315 3Avoiding a fight is a mark of honor; only fools insist on quarreling.H3519H376H7674H7379H191H1566 4Those too lazy to plow in the right season will have no food at the harvest.H6102H2790H2779H7592H7592H7105 5Though good advice lies deep within the heart, a person with understanding will draw it out.H6098H3820H376H6013H4325H376H8394H1802 6Many will say they are loyal friends, but who can find one who is truly reliable?H7230H120H7121H376H2617H529H376H4672 7The godly walk with integrity; blessed are their children who follow them.H6662H1980H8537H1121H835H310 8When a king sits in judgment, he weighs all the evidence, distinguishing the bad from the good.H4428H3427H3678H1779H2219H7451H5869 9Who can say, “I have cleansed my heart; I am pure and free from sin”?H559H3820H2135H2891H2403 10False weights and unequal measures—the Lord detests double standards of every kind.H68H68H374H374H8147H1571H8441H3068 11Even children are known by the way they act, whether their conduct is pure, and whether it is right.H5288H5234H4611H6467H2134H3477 12Ears to hear and eyes to see—both are gifts from the Lord.H8085H241H7200H5869H3068H6213H8147 13If you love sleep, you will end in poverty. Keep your eyes open, and there will be plenty to eat!H157H8142H3423H6491H5869H7646H3899 14The buyer haggles over the price, saying, “It’s worthless,” then brags about getting a bargain!H7451H7451H559H7069H235H1984 15Wise words are more valuable than much gold and many rubies.H3426H2091H7230H6443H8193H1847H3366H3627 16Get security from someone who guarantees a stranger’s debt. Get a deposit if he does it for foreigners.H3947H899H6148H2114H2254H5237 17Stolen bread tastes sweet, but it turns to gravel in the mouth.H3899H8267H6156H376H310H6310H4390H2687 18Plans succeed through good counsel; don’t go to war without wise advice.H4284H3559H6098H8458H6213H4421 19A gossip goes around telling secrets, so don’t hang around with chatterers.H1980H7400H1540H5475H6148H6601H8193 20If you insult your father or mother, your light will be snuffed out in total darkness.H7043H1H517H5216H1846H380H380H2822 21An inheritance obtained too early in life is not a blessing in the end.H5159H926H973H7223H319H1288 22Don’t say, “I will get even for this wrong.” Wait for the Lord to handle the matter.H559H7999H7451H6960H3068H3467 23The Lord detests double standards; he is not pleased by dishonest scales.H68H68H8441H3068H4820H3976H2896 24The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?H1397H4703H3068H120H995H1870 25Don’t trap yourself by making a rash promise to God and only later counting the cost.H4170H120H3216H6944H310H5088H1239 26A wise king scatters the wicked like wheat, then runs his threshing wheel over them.H2450H4428H2219H7563H7725H212 27The Lord’s light penetrates the human spirit, exposing every hidden motive.H5397H120H5216H3068H2664H2315H990 28Unfailing love and faithfulness protect the king; his throne is made secure through love.H2617H571H5341H4428H3678H5582H2617 29The glory of the young is their strength; the gray hair of experience is the splendor of the old.H8597H970H3581H1926H2205H7872 30Physical punishment cleanses away evil; such discipline purifies the heart.H2250H6482H8562H7451H4347H2315H990
