Proverbs 10

<< Proverbs 10 >>
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)
 

1A wise son makes a glad father; but a foolish son is sadness unto his mother.

2Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, but righteousness delivers from death. 3The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish, but wickedness shall cast out the wicked.

4He that deals with a slack hand becomes poor, but the hand of the diligent makes rich.

5He that gathers in summer is a wise son, but he that sleeps in harvest is a son that causes shame.

6Blessings are upon the head of the just, but the mouth of the wicked covers violence.

7The memory of the just is blessed, but the name of the wicked shall stink.

8The wise in heart will receive the commandments, but he who speaks foolishness shall fall.

9He that walks in integrity walks securely, but he that perverts his ways shall be broken.

10He that winks with the eye causes sorrow, and he that speaks foolishness shall fall.

11The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life, but the mouth of the wicked covers violence.

12Hatred stirs up strifes, but love covers all sins.

13In the lips of the prudent wisdom is found and is a rod unto the back of him that is void of understanding.

14Wise men keep knowledge, but the mouth of the foolish is near unto calamity.

15The rich man’s wealth is his strong city; the weakness of the poor is their poverty.

16The work of the righteous is unto life, but the fruit of the wicked is for sin.

17He is in the way of life that gives heed to chastening, but he that refuses reproof errs.

18He that hides hatred has lying lips, and he that utters a slander, is a fool.

19In the multitude of words there is no lack of rebellion, but he that refrains his lips is wise.

20The tongue of the just is as choice silver, but the understanding {Heb. heart} of the wicked is worth little. 21The lips of the righteous feed many, but fools die for lack of wisdom.

22The blessing of the LORD is that which makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.

23To make an abomination is as sport to the fool, but wisdom is recreation to the man of intelligence.

24The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him, but God shall grant the desire of the righteous. 25When the whirlwind passes, the wicked is no more, but the righteous is founded for ever.

26As vinegar to the teeth and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to those that send him.

27The fear of the LORD shall prolong days, but the years of the wicked shall be shortened. 28The hope of the righteous is joy, but the hope of the wicked shall perish.

29The way of the LORD is strength to the perfect, but it is terror to the workers of iniquity. 30The righteous eternally shall never be removed, but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.

31The mouth of the just shall bring forth wisdom, but the perverse tongue shall be cut out. 32The lips of the righteous shall know the will of God, but the mouth of the wicked speaks perversion.
