The King James Version Bible

Proverbs 21:13-18

  1. Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.

  2. A gift in secret pacifieth anger: and a reward in the bosom strong wrath.

  3. It is joy to the just to do judgment: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.

  4. The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.

  5. He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.

  6. The wicked shall be a ransom for the righteous, and the transgressor for the upright.
