Proverbs 13 (ASV)
 A wise son heareth his father’s instruction; But a scoffer heareth not rebuke.
 A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth; But the soul of the treacherous shall eat violence.
 He that guardeth his mouth keepeth his life; But he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.
 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing; But the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
 A righteous man hateth lying; But a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame.
 Righteousness guardeth him that is upright in the way; But wickedness overthroweth the sinner.
 There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: There is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great wealth.
 The ransom of a man’s life is his riches; But the poor heareth no threatening.
 The light of the righteous rejoiceth; But the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.
 By pride cometh only contention; But with the well-advised is wisdom.
 Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished; But he that gathereth by labor shall have increase.
 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick; But when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
 Whoso despiseth the word bringeth destruction on himself; But he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.
 The law of the wise is a fountain of life, That one may depart from the snares of death.
 Good understanding giveth favor; But the way of the transgressor is hard.
 Every prudent man worketh with knowledge; But a fool flaunteth his folly.
 A wicked messenger falleth into evil; But a faithful ambassador is health.
 Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth correction; But he that regardeth reproof shall be honored.
 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul; But it is an abomination to fools to depart from evil.
 Walk with wise men, and thou shalt be wise; But the companion of fools shall smart for it.
 Evil pursueth sinners; But the righteous shall be recompensed with good.
 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children; And the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the righteous.
 Much food is in the tillage of the poor; But there is that is destroyed by reason of injustice.
 He that spareth his rod hateth his son; But he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.
 The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul; But the belly of the wicked shall want.

Young’s Literal Translation
Proverbs 13 (YLT)
 A wise son-the instruction of a father, And a scorner-he hath not heard rebuke.
 From the fruit of the mouth a man eateth good, And the soul of the treacherous-violence.
 Whoso is keeping his mouth, is keeping his soul, Whoso is opening wide his lips-ruin to him!
 The soul of the slothful is desiring, and hath not. And the soul of the diligent is made fat.
 A false word the righteous hateth, And the wicked causeth abhorrence, and is confounded.
 Righteousness keepeth him who is perfect in the way, And wickedness overthroweth a sin offering.
 There is who is making himself rich, and hath nothing, Who is making himself poor, and wealth is abundant.
 The ransom of a man’s life are his riches, And the poor hath not heard rebuke.
 The light of the righteous rejoiceth, And the lamp of the wicked is extinguished.
 A vain man through pride causeth debate, And with the counselled is wisdom.
 Wealth from vanity becometh little, And whoso is gathering by the hand becometh great.
 Hope prolonged is making the heart sick, And a tree of life is the coming desire.
 Whoso is despising the Word is destroyed for it, And whoso is fearing the Command is repayed.
 The law of the wise is a fountain of life, To turn aside from snares of death.
 Good understanding giveth grace, And the way of the treacherous is hard.
 Every prudent one dealeth with knowledge, And a fool spreadeth out folly.
 A wicked messenger falleth into evil, And a faithful ambassador is healing.
 Whoso is refusing instruction-poverty and shame, And whoso is observing reproof is honoured.
 A desire accomplished is sweet to the soul, And an abomination to fools is: Turn from evil.
 Whoso is walking with wise men is wise, And a companion of fools suffereth evil.
 Evil pursueth sinners, And good recompenseth the righteous.
 A good man causeth sons’ sons to inherit, And laid up for the righteous is the sinner’s wealth.
 Abundance of food-the tillage of the poor, And substance is consumed without judgment.
 Whoso is sparing his rod is hating his son, And whoso is loving him hath hastened him chastisement.
 The righteous is eating to the satiety of his soul, And the belly of the wicked lacketh!
