proverbs 13.1 - 13

13A wise child loves discipline,*
   but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.
2 From the fruit of their words good people eat good things,
   but the desire of the treacherous is for wrongdoing.
3 Those who guard their mouths preserve their lives;
   those who open wide their lips come to ruin.
4 The appetite of the lazy craves, and gets nothing,
   while the appetite of the diligent is richly supplied.
5 The righteous hate falsehood,
   but the wicked act shamefully and disgracefully.
6 Righteousness guards one whose way is upright,
   but sin overthrows the wicked.
7 Some pretend to be rich, yet have nothing;
   others pretend to be poor, yet have great wealth.
8 Wealth is a ransom for a person’s life,
   but the poor get no threats.
9 The light of the righteous rejoices,
   but the lamp of the wicked goes out.
10 By insolence the heedless make strife,
   but wisdom is with those who take advice.
11 Wealth hastily gained* will dwindle,
   but those who gather little by little will increase it.
12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
   but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.
13 Those who despise the word bring destruction on themselves,
   but those who respect the commandment will be rewarded.
