Mishlei (Book of Proverbs), Chapter 13

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 A wise son is instructed of his father; but a scorner heareth not rebuke.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 A man shall eat good from the fruit of his mouth; but the desire of the faithless is violence.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 He that guardeth his mouth keepeth his life; but for him that openeth wide his lips there shall be ruin.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be abundantly gratified.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 A righteous man hateth lying; but a wicked man behaveth vilely and shamefully.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 Righteousness guardeth him that is upright in the way; but wickedness overthroweth the sinner.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 There is that pretendeth himself rich, yet hath nothing; there is that pretendeth himself poor, yet hath great wealth.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 The ransom of a man's life are his riches; but the poor heareth no threatening.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 The light of the righteous rejoiceth; but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 By pride cometh only contention; but with the well-advised is wisdom.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished; but he that gathereth little by little shall increase.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick; but desire fulfilled is a tree of life.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 Whoso despiseth the word shall suffer thereby; but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 Good understanding giveth grace; but the way of the faithless is harsh.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 Every prudent man dealeth with forethought; but a fool unfoldeth folly.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 A wicked messenger falleth into evil; but a faithful ambassador is health.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction; but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul; and it is an abomination to fools to depart from evil.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise; but the companion of fools shall smart for it.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 Evil pursueth sinners; but to the righteous good shall be repaid.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children; and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the righteous.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 Much food is in the tillage of the poor; but there is that is swept away by want of righteousness.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'24 He that spareth his rod hateth his son; but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000018-QINU`"'25 The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his desire; but the belly of the wicked shall want.
