proverbs 13.14 - end


14 The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life,
   so that one may avoid the snares of death.
15 Good sense wins favour,
   but the way of the faithless is their ruin.*
16 The clever do all things intelligently,
   but the fool displays folly.
17 A bad messenger brings trouble,
   but a faithful envoy, healing.
18 Poverty and disgrace are for the one who ignores instruction,
   but one who heeds reproof is honoured.
19 A desire realized is sweet to the soul,
   but to turn away from evil is an abomination to fools.
20 Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise,
   but the companion of fools suffers harm.
21 Misfortune pursues sinners,
   but prosperity rewards the righteous.
22 The good leave an inheritance to their children’s children,
   but the sinner’s wealth is laid up for the righteous.
23 The field of the poor may yield much food,
   but it is swept away through injustice.
24 Those who spare the rod hate their children,
   but those who love them are diligent to discipline them.
25 The righteous have enough to satisfy their appetite,
   but the belly of the wicked is empty.
