Proverbs 12

Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish. 2 A good man obtaineth favour of the LORD: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn. 3 A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved. 4 aA virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is bas rottenness in his bones. 5 The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit. 6 The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them. 7 cThe wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand. 8 A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: dbut he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised. 9 He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread.

10 eA righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. 11 fHe that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding. 12 The wicked desireth the net of evil men: but the groot of the righteous yieldeth fruit. 13 The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: hbut the just shall come out of trouble. 14 A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: iand the recompence of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him. 15 jThe way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise. 16 A fool's wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covereth shame. 17 He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit. 18 There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health. 19 kThe lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.

20 Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy. 21 lThere shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief. 22 mLying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight. 23 A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness. 24 nThe hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute. 25 Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but oa good word maketh it glad. 26 The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them. 27 The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious. 28 In the way of prighteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death.
