Proverbs 10:1-12

  1. The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother.

  2. Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.

  3. The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked.

  4. He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.

  5. He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.

  6. Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.

  7. The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.

  8. The wise in heart will receive commandments: but a prating fool shall fall.

  9. He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.

  10. He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a prating fool shall fall.

  11. The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.

  12. Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.
