bounce off proverb 13

 

 

 

hear rebuke, do not

ignore the fruit of the rebukers mouth: keep your mouth keep your life: for he that opens wide his lips with dirty laundry will be destroyed.

despise lying: loath a wicked man  Righteousness keeps him that is upright in the way: but wickedness stomps on the sinner.

Some make themselves rich, yet have nothing: there are those that make themselves poor, yet have great riches

The light of the righteous rejoices: but the lamp of the wicked is to snuffed out.

Prideful people bring contention and argumentation but with the well advised are words of wisdom.

Wealth gotten by vanity will be diminished: but he that gathers by labor shall increase.

Hope deferred makes the heart sick: but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.

If you hate the word you will be destroyed: but if you are fearful of the commandments you will be rewarded.

The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.

Good understanding gives favor: but the way of transgressors is hard.

Every prudent man deals with knowledge: but a fool exposes his folly.

A wicked messenger falls into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health.

Poverty and shame will be for him that refuses instruction: but he that has high regard for correction will be honored.

The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil.

walk with wise men and you will be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
