    Contrast The Upright And The Wicked


    Proverbs Chapter 18 • Daily Reading by Pastor Chopper Ward


    Proverbs 18
    King James Version

    1
    Through desire a man, having separated himself,
    seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.​

    2 A fool hath no delight in understanding,
    but that his heart may discover itself.​

    3 When the wicked cometh, then cometh also contempt,
    and with ignominy reproach.​

    4 The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters,
    and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.​

    5 It is not good to accept the person of the wicked,
    to overthrow the righteous in judgment.​

    6 A fool's lips enter into contention,
    and his mouth calleth for strokes.​
    7 A fool's mouth is his destruction,
    and his lips are the snare of his soul.​
    8 The words of a talebearer are as wounds,
    and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.​

    9 He also that is slothful in his work
    is brother to him that is a great waster.​

    10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower:
    the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.​
    11 The rich man's wealth is his strong city,
    and as an high wall in his own conceit.​

    12 Before destruction the heart of man is haughty,
    and before honour is humility.​

    13 He that answereth a matter before he heareth it,
    it is folly and shame unto him.​

    14 The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity;
    but a wounded spirit who can bear?​

    15 The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge;
    and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.​

    16 A man's gift maketh room for him,
    and bringeth him before great men.​

    17 He that is first in his own cause seemeth just;
    but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.​

    18 The lot causeth contentions to cease,
    and parteth between the mighty.​

    19 A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city:
    and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.​

    20 A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth;
    and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.​

    21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue:
    and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.​

    22 Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing,
    and obtaineth favour of the Lord.​

    23 The poor useth intreaties;
    but the rich answereth roughly.​

    24 A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly:
    and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

    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
