Proverbs 10:1-11

Wise Sayings of Solomon

10The proverbs of Solomon.


A wise child makes a glad father,
   but a foolish child is a mother’s grief.
2 Treasures gained by wickedness do not profit,
   but righteousness delivers from death.
3 The Lord does not let the righteous go hungry,
   but he thwarts the craving of the wicked.
4 A slack hand causes poverty,
   but the hand of the diligent makes rich.
5 A child who gathers in summer is prudent,
   but a child who sleeps in harvest brings shame.
6 Blessings are on the head of the righteous,
   but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.
7 The memory of the righteous is a blessing,
   but the name of the wicked will rot.
8 The wise of heart will heed commandments,
   but a babbling fool will come to ruin.
9 Whoever walks in integrity walks securely,
   but whoever follows perverse ways will be found out.
10 Whoever winks the eye causes trouble,
   but the one who rebukes boldly makes peace.*
11 The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life,
   but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.
