New Testament

Proverbs 13 American Standard Version (ASV)

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.
