Proverbs 19.16-29


16 Those who keep the commandment will live;
   those who are heedless of their ways will die.
17 Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord,
   and will be repaid in full.
18 Discipline your children while there is hope;
   do not set your heart on their destruction.
19 A violent-tempered person will pay the penalty;
   if you effect a rescue, you will only have to do it again.*
20 Listen to advice and accept instruction,
   that you may gain wisdom for the future.
21 The human mind may devise many plans,
   but it is the purpose of the Lord that will be established.
22 What is desirable in a person is loyalty,
   and it is better to be poor than a liar.
23 The fear of the Lord is life indeed;
   filled with it one rests secure
   and suffers no harm.
24 The lazy person buries a hand in the dish,
   and will not even bring it back to the mouth.
25 Strike a scoffer, and the simple will learn prudence;
   reprove the intelligent, and they will gain knowledge.
26 Those who do violence to their father and chase away their mother
   are children who cause shame and bring reproach.
27 Cease straying, my child, from the words of knowledge,
   in order that you may hear instruction.
28 A worthless witness mocks at justice,
   and the mouth of the wicked devours iniquity.
29 Condemnation is ready for scoffers,
   and flogging for the backs of fools.
