1 A wise son will obey the instruction of his father: but a scorner will hear no rebuke.

2 A man shall eat good things by the fruit [a]of his mouth: but the soul of the trespasser shall suffer violence.

3 He that keepeth his mouth, keepeth his life: but he that openeth his lips, destruction shall be to him.

4 The sluggard [b]lusteth, but his soul hath nought: but the soul of the diligent shall have plenty.

5 A righteous man hateth lying words: but the wicked causeth slander and shame.

6 Righteousness preserveth the upright of [c]life: but wickedness overthroweth the sinner.

7 There is that maketh himself rich, and hath nothing, and that maketh himself poor, having great riches.
