  • Proverbs 10:1-14 (ESV)

    1 The proverbs of Solomon.

    A wise son makes a glad father,

    but a foolish son is a sorrow to his mother.

    2 Treasures gained by wickedness do not profit,

    but righteousness delivers from death.

    3 The Lord does not let the righteous go hungry,

    but he thwarts the craving of the wicked.

    4 A slack hand causes poverty,

    but the hand of the diligent makes rich.

    5 He who gathers in summer is a prudent son,

    but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who brings shame.

    6 Blessings are on the head of the righteous,

    but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.

    7 The memory of the righteous is a blessing,

    but the name of the wicked will rot.

    8 The wise of heart will receive commandments,

    but a babbling fool will come to ruin.

    9 Whoever walks in integrity walks securely,

    but he who makes his ways crooked will be found out.

    10 Whoever winks the eye causes trouble,

    and a babbling fool will come to ruin.

    11 The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life,

    but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.

    12 Hatred stirs up strife,

    but love covers all offenses.

    13 On the lips of him who has understanding, wisdom is found,

    but a rod is for the back of him who lacks sense.

    14 The wise lay up knowledge,

    but the mouth of a fool brings ruin near.
