Contrast The Upright And The Wicked

    Contrast The Upright And The Wicked

    Proverbs Chapter 17 • Daily Reading by Pastor Chopper Ward

    Proverbs 17
    King James Version

    Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith,
    than an house full of sacrifices with strife.​

    2 A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causeth shame,
    and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren.​

    3 The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold:
    but the Lord trieth the hearts.​

    4 A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips;
    and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.​

    5 Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker:
    and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.​

    6 Children's children are the crown of old men;
    and the glory of children are their fathers.​
    7 Excellent speech becometh not a fool:
    much less do lying lips a prince.​

    8 A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it:
    whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth.​

    9 He that covereth a transgression seeketh love;
    but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.​

    10 A reproof entereth more into a wise man
    than an hundred stripes into a fool.​

    11 An evil man seeketh only rebellion:
    therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.​

    12 Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man,
    rather than a fool in his folly.​

    13 Whoso rewardeth evil for good,
    evil shall not depart from his house.​

    14 The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water:
    therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.​

    15 He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just,
    even they both are abomination to the Lord.​

    16 Wherefore is there a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom,
    seeing he hath no heart to it?​

    17 A friend loveth at all times,
    and a brother is born for adversity.​

    18 A man void of understanding striketh hands,
    and becometh surety in the presence of his friend.​

    19 He loveth transgression that loveth strife:
    and he that exalteth his gate seeketh destruction.​

    20 He that hath a froward heart findeth no good:
    and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief.​

    21 He that begetteth a fool doeth it to his sorrow:
    and the father of a fool hath no joy.​

    22 A merry heart doeth good like a medicine:
    but a broken spirit drieth the bones.​

    23 A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom
    to pervert the ways of judgment.​

    24 Wisdom is before him that hath understanding;
    but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.​

    25 A foolish son is a grief to his father,
    and bitterness to her that bare him.​

    26 Also to punish the just is not good,
    nor to strike princes for equity.​

    27 He that hath knowledge spareth his words:
    and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.​

    28 Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise:
    and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.

    Even A Fool Seems Wise If He Keeps Silent

    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
