Contrast The Upright And The Wicked

    Contrast The Upright And The Wicked

    Proverbs Chapter 14 • Daily Reading by Pastor Chopper Ward

    Proverbs 14
    King James Version

    Every wise woman buildeth her house:
    but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.​

    2 He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the Lord:
    but he that is perverse in his ways despiseth him.​

    3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride:
    but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.​

    4 Where no oxen are, the crib is clean:
    but much increase is by the strength of the ox.​

    5 A faithful witness will not lie:
    but a false witness will utter lies.​

    6 A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not:
    but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth.​
    7 Go from the presence of a foolish man,
    when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.​

    8 The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way:
    but the folly of fools is deceit.​

    9 Fools make a mock at sin:
    but among the righteous there is favour.​

    10 The heart knoweth his own bitterness;
    and a stranger doth not intermeddle with his joy.​

    11 The house of the wicked shall be overthrown:
    but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish.​

    12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man,
    but the end thereof are the ways of death.​

    13 Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful;
    and the end of that mirth is heaviness.​

    14 The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways:
    and a good man shall be satisfied from himself.​

    15 The simple believeth every word:
    but the prudent man looketh well to his going.​
    16 A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil:
    but the fool rageth, and is confident.​
    17 He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly:
    and a man of wicked devices is hated.​
    18 The simple inherit folly:
    but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.​
    19 The evil bow before the good;
    and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.​

    20 The poor is hated even of his own neighbour:
    but the rich hath many friends.​
    21 He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth:
    but he that hath mercy on the poor, happy is he.​

    22 Do they not err that devise evil?
    but mercy and truth shall be to them that devise good.​

    23 In all labour there is profit:
    but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.​

    24 The crown of the wise is their riches:
    but the foolishness of fools is folly.​

    25 A true witness delivereth souls:
    but a deceitful witness speaketh lies.​

    26 In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence:
    and his children shall have a place of refuge.​
    27 The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life,
    to depart from the snares of death.​

    28 In the multitude of people is the king's honour:
    but in the want of people is the destruction of the prince.​

    29 He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding:
    but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.​

    30 A sound heart is the life of the flesh:
    but envy the rottenness of the bones.​

    31 He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker:
    but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.​

    32 The wicked is driven away in his wickedness:
    but the righteous hath hope in his death.​

    33 Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding:
    but that which is in the midst of fools is made known.​

    34 Righteousness exalteth a nation:
    but sin is a reproach to any people.​

    35 The king's favour is toward a wise servant:
    but his wrath is against him that causeth shame.

    Those Who Oppress The Poor Insult Their Maker

    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
