Proverbs 18 – Selected Verses

Proverbs 18 All Verses from NIV

  An unfriendly person pursues selfish ends
    and against all sound judgment starts quarrels.

Fools find no pleasure in understanding
    but delight in airing their own opinions.

It is not good to be partial to the wicked
    and so deprive the innocent of justice.

The lips of fools bring them strife,
    and their mouths invite a beating.

One who is slack in his work
    is brother to one who destroys.

11 The wealth of the rich is their fortified city;
    they imagine it a wall too high to scale.

14 The human spirit can endure in sickness,
    but a crushed spirit who can bear?

15 The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge,
    for the ears of the wise seek it out.

17 In a lawsuit the first to speak seems right,
    until someone comes forward and cross-examines.

21 The tongue has the power of life and death,
    and those who love it will eat its fruit.

22 He who finds a wife finds what is good
    and receives favor from the Lord.

24 One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin,
    but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
