Chapter 13

1

 

 A wise son heareth the doctrine of his father: but he that is a scorner, beareth not when he is reproved. 

 

 


2

 

 Of the fruit of his own mouth shall a man be filled with good things: but the soul of transgressors is wicked. 

 

 


3

 

 He that keepeth his mouth, keepeth his soul: but he that hath no guard on his speech shall meet with evils. 

 

 


4

 

 The sluggard willeth and willeth not: but the soul of them that work, shall be made fat. 

 

 


5

 

 The just shall hate a lying word: but the wicked confoundeth, and shall be confounded. 

 

 


6

 

 Justice keepeth the way of the innocent: but wickedness overthroweth the sinner. 

 

 


7

 

 One is as it were rich, when he hath nothing: and another is as it were poor, when he hath great riches. 

 

 


8

 

 The ransom of a man's life are his riches: but he that is poor beareth not reprehension. 

 

 


9

 

 The light of the just giveth joy: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out. 

 

 


10

 

 Among the proud there are always contentions: but they that do all things with counsel, are ruled by wisdom. 

 

 


11

 

 Substance got in haste shall be diminished: but that which by little and little is gathered with the hand shall increase. 

 

 


12

 

 Hope that is deferred afflicteth the soul: desire when it cometh is a tree of life. 

 

 


13

 

 Whosoever speaketh ill of any thing, bindeth himself for the time to come: but he that feareth the commandment, shall dwell in peace. Deceitful souls go astray in sins: the just are merciful, and shew mercy. 

 

 


14

 

 The law of the wise is a fountain of life, that he may decline from the ruin of death. 

 

 


15

 

 Good instruction shall give grace: in the way of scorners is a deep pit. 

 

 


16

 

 The prudent mall doth all things with counsel: but he that is a fool, layeth open his folly. 

 

 


17

 

 The messenger of the wicked shall fall into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health. 

 

 


18

 

 Poverty and shame to him that refuseth instruction: but he that yieldeth to reproof, shall be glorified. 

 

 


19

 

 The desire that is accomplished, delighteth the soul: fools hate them that flee from evil things. 

 

 


20

 

 He that walketh with the wise, shall be wise: a friend of fools shall become like to them. 

 

 


21

 

 21Evil pursueth sinners: and to the just good shall be repaid. 

 

 


22

 

 The good man leaveth heirs, sons, and grandsons: and the substance of the sinner is kept for the just. 

 

 


23

 

 Much food is in the tillage of fathers: but for others it is gathered with out judgment. 

 

 


24

 

 He that spareth the rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him correcteth him betimes. 

 

 


25

 

 The just eateth and filleth his soul: but the belly of the wicked is never to be filled.
