Proverbs 24.19-34


19 Do not fret because of evildoers.
   Do not envy the wicked;
20 for the evil have no future;
   the lamp of the wicked will go out.


21 My child, fear the Lord and the king,
   and do not disobey either of them;*
22 for disaster comes from them suddenly,
   and who knows the ruin that both can bring?

Further Sayings of the Wise


23   These also are sayings of the wise:


Partiality in judging is not good.
24 Whoever says to the wicked, ‘You are innocent’,
   will be cursed by peoples, abhorred by nations;
25 but those who rebuke the wicked will have delight,
   and a good blessing will come upon them.
26 One who gives an honest answer
   gives a kiss on the lips.


27 Prepare your work outside,
   get everything ready for you in the field;
   and after that build your house.


28 Do not be a witness against your neighbour without cause,
   and do not deceive with your lips.
29 Do not say, ‘I will do to others as they have done to me;
   I will pay them back for what they have done.’


30 I passed by the field of one who was lazy,
   by the vineyard of a stupid person;
31 and see, it was all overgrown with thorns;
   the ground was covered with nettles,
   and its stone wall was broken down.
32 Then I saw and considered it;
   I looked and received instruction.
33 A little sleep, a little slumber,
   a little folding of the hands to rest,
34 and poverty will come upon you like a robber,
   and want, like an armed warrior.
