Proverbs 13 (WEBP)

[1] A wise son listens to his father’s instruction, but a scoffer doesn’t listen to rebuke.
[2] By the fruit of his lips, a man enjoys good things, but the unfaithful crave violence.
[3] He who guards his mouth guards his soul. One who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.
[4] The soul of the sluggard desires, and has nothing, but the desire of the diligent shall be fully satisfied.
[5] A righteous man hates lies, but a wicked man brings shame and disgrace.
[6] Righteousness guards the way of integrity, but wickedness overthrows the sinner.
[7] There are some who pretend to be rich, yet have nothing. There are some who pretend to be poor, yet have great wealth.
[8] The ransom of a man’s life is his riches, but the poor hear no threats.
[9] The light of the righteous shines brightly, but the lamp of the wicked is snuffed out.
[10] Pride only breeds quarrels, but wisdom is with people who take advice.
[11] Wealth gained dishonestly dwindles away, but he who gathers by hand makes it grow.
[12] Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when longing is fulfilled, it is a tree of life.
[13] Whoever despises instruction will pay for it, but he who respects a command will be rewarded.
[14] The teaching of the wise is a spring of life, to turn from the snares of death.
[15] Good understanding wins favor, but the way of the unfaithful is hard.
[16] Every prudent man acts from knowledge, but a fool exposes folly.
[17] A wicked messenger falls into trouble, but a trustworthy envoy gains healing.
[18] Poverty and shame come to him who refuses discipline, but he who heeds correction shall be honored.
[19] Longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul, but fools detest turning from evil.
[20] One who walks with wise men grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.
[21] Misfortune pursues sinners, but prosperity rewards the righteous.
[22] A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the wealth of the sinner is stored for the righteous.
[23] An abundance of food is in poor people’s fields, but injustice sweeps it away.
[24] One who spares the rod hates his son, but one who loves him is careful to discipline him.
[25] The righteous one eats to the satisfying of his soul, but the belly of the wicked goes hungry.
