    Contrast The Upright And The Wicked

    Proverbs Chapter 13 • Daily Reading by Pastor Chopper Ward

    Proverbs 13
    King James Version

    A wise son heareth his father's instruction:
    but a scorner heareth not rebuke.​

    2 A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth:
    but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.​
    3 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life:
    but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.​

    4 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing:
    but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.​

    5 A righteous man hateth lying:
    but a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame.​
    6 Righteousness keepeth him that is upright in the way:
    but wickedness overthroweth the sinner.​

    7 There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing:
    there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.​

    8 The ransom of a man's life are his riches:
    but the poor heareth not rebuke.​

    9 The light of the righteous rejoiceth:
    but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.​

    10 Only by pride cometh contention:
    but with the well advised is wisdom.​

    11 Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished:
    but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.​

    12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick:
    but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.​

    13 Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed:
    but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.​

    14 The law of the wise is a fountain of life,
    to depart from the snares of death.​

    15 Good understanding giveth favour:
    but the way of transgressors is hard.​
    16 Every prudent man dealeth with knowledge:
    but a fool layeth open his folly.​

    17 A wicked messenger falleth into mischief:
    but a faithful ambassador is health.​

    18 Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction:
    but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.​

    19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul:
    but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil.​

    20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise:
    but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.​

    21 Evil pursueth sinners:
    but to the righteous good shall be repayed.​

    22 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children:
    and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.​

    23 Much food is in the tillage of the poor:
    but there is that is destroyed for want of judgment.​

    24 He that spareth his rod hateth his son:
    but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.​

    25 The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul:
    but the belly of the wicked shall want.

    The Light Of The Righteous Rejoiceth

    About Author

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
