Proverbs 19

Proverbs 19:1,3,5,7-8,11,14,16-17,20,23,25,27 NIV
Better the poor whose walk is blameless
than a fool whose lips are perverse. [3] A person’s own folly leads to their ruin, yet their heart rages against the Lord. [5] A false witness will not go unpunished, and whoever pours out lies will not go free. [7] The poor are shunned by all their relatives—how much more do their friends avoid them! Though the poor pursue them with pleading, they are nowhere to be found. [8] The one who gets wisdom loves life; the one who cherishes understanding will soon prosper. [11] A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense. [14] Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the Lord. [16] Whoever keeps commandments keeps their life, but whoever shows contempt for their ways will die. [17] Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done. [20] Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise. [23] The fear of the Lord leads to life; then one rests content, untouched by trouble. [25] Flog a mocker, and the simple will learn prudence; rebuke the discerning, and they will gain knowledge. [27] Stop listening to instruction, my son, and you will stray from the words of knowledge.
