Adversity – Proverbs 24

Selected Verses from Proverbs 24 (ESV)

By (E)wisdom a house is built,
    and by understanding it is established;
by knowledge the rooms are filled
    with all (F)precious and pleasant riches.

Wisdom is (J)too high for a fool;
    in (K)the gate he does not open his mouth.

10 If you (O)faint in the day of adversity,
    your strength is small.

17 (AB)Do not rejoice when your enemy falls,
    and let not your heart be glad when he stumbles,
18 lest the Lord see it and be displeased,
    and turn away his anger from him.

19 (AC)Fret not yourself because of evildoers,
    and be not (AD)envious of the wicked,
20 for the evil man has no (AE)future;
    (AF)the lamp of the wicked will be put out.

28 (AM)Be not a witness against your neighbor without cause,
    and do not deceive with your lips.
29 Do not say, (AN)“I will do to him as he has done to me;
    I will pay the man back for what he has done.”

33 (AS)A little sleep, a little slumber,
    a little folding of the hands to rest,
34 and poverty will come upon you like a robber,
    and want like an armed man.
