Proverbs chapter 13

A wise son will receive his father's warning, but he that is scornful, will not hear when he is reproved.
A good man shall enjoy the fruit of his mouth, but he that hath a froward mind, shall be spoiled.
He that keepeth his mouth, keepeth his life: but who so speaketh unadvised, findeth harm.
The sluggard would fain have, and can not get his desire: but the soul of the diligent shall have plenty.
A righteous man abhoreth lies, but the ungodly shameth both other and himself.
Righteousness keepeth the innocent in the way, but ungodliness shall overthrow the sinner.
Some men are rich, though they have nothing: again some men are poor having great riches.
With goods every man delivereth his life, and the poor will not be reproved.
The light of the righteous maketh joyful, but the candle of the ungodly shall be put out.
Among the proud there is ever strife, but among those that do all things with advisement, there is wisdom.
Hastily gotten goods are soon spent, but they that be gathered together with the hand, shall increase.
Long tarring for a thing that is deferred, grieveth the heart: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
Whoso despiseth the word, destroyeth himself: but he that feareth the commandment shall have peace.
The law is a well of life unto the wise, that it may keep him from the snares of death.
Good understanding giveth favour, but hard is the way of the despisers.
A wise man doth all things with discretion, but a fool will declare his folly.
An ungodly messenger bringeth mischief, but a faithful ambassador is wholesome.
He that thinketh scorn to be reformed, cometh to poverty and shame: but who so receiveth correction, shall come to honour.
When a desire is brought to pass, it delighteth the soul: but fools abhor him that eschewth evil.
He that goeth in the company of wise men, shall be wise: but who so is a companion of fools shall be hurt.
Mischief followeth upon sinners, but the righteous shall have a good reward.
Which their children's children shall have in possession, for the riches of the sinner is laid up for the just.
There is plenteousness of food in the fields of the poor, and shall be increased out of measure.
He that spareth the rod, hateth his son: but who so loveth him, holdeth him ever in nurture.
The righteous eateth, and is satisfied, but the belly of the ungodly hath never enough.
