Chapter 13

1

 A wise son [heareth] his father's instruction; But a scoffer heareth not rebuke.

2

 A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth; But the soul of the treacherous [shall eat] violence.

3

 He that guardeth his mouth keepeth his life; [But] he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.

4

 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing; But the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.

5

 A righteous man hateth lying; But a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame.

6

 Righteousness guardeth him that is upright in the way; But wickedness overthroweth the sinner.

7

 There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: There is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great wealth.

8

 The ransom of a man's life is his riches; But the poor heareth no threatening.

9

 The light of the righteous rejoiceth; But the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.

10

 By pride cometh only contention; But with the well-advised is wisdom.

11

 Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished; But he that gathereth by labor shall have increase.

12

 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick; But when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.

13

 Whoso despiseth the word bringeth destruction on himself; But he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.

14

 The law of the wise is a fountain of life, That one may depart from the snares of death.

15

 Good understanding giveth favor; But the way of the transgressor is hard.

16

 Every prudent man worketh with knowledge; But a fool flaunteth [his] folly.

17

 A wicked messenger falleth into evil; But a faithful ambassador is health.

18

 Poverty and shame [shall be to] him that refuseth correction; But he that regardeth reproof shall be honored.

19

 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul; But it is an abomination to fools to depart from evil.

20

 Walk with wise men, and thou shalt be wise; But the companion of fools shall smart for it.

21

 Evil pursueth sinners; But the righteous shall be recompensed with good.

22

 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children; And the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the righteous.

23

 Much food [is in] the tillage of the poor; But there is that is destroyed by reason of injustice.

24

 He that spareth his rod hateth his son; But he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.

25

 The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul; But the belly of the wicked shall want.
