You have not started any reading plans.
than to be dishonest and a fool.
haste makes mistakes.
and then are angry at the Lord.
poverty drives them all away.
nor will a liar escape.
Everyone is the friend of a person who gives gifts!
how much more will their friends avoid them!
Though the poor plead with them,
their friends are gone.
people who cherish understanding will prosper.
and a liar will be destroyed.
or for a slave to rule over princes!
they earn respect by overlooking wrongs.
but his favor is like dew on the grass.
13 A foolish child* is a calamity to a father;
a quarrelsome wife is as annoying as constant dripping.
but only the Lord can give an understanding wife.
but idleness leaves them hungry.
despising them leads to death.
and he will repay you!
Otherwise you will ruin their lives.
If you rescue them once, you will have to do it again.
so you will be wise the rest of your life.
but the Lord’s purpose will prevail.
It is better to be poor than dishonest.
bringing security and protection from harm.
but don’t even lift it to their mouth.
if you correct the wise, they will be all the wiser.
are an embarrassment and a public disgrace.
you will turn your back on knowledge.
the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil.
and the backs of fools are made to be beaten.
