Wise Sayings of Solomon (continued)
13:1A wise son heareth his father's instruction;
But a scoffer heareth not rebuke.
But the soul of the treacherous shall eat violence.
13:3He that guardeth his mouth keepeth his life;
But he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.
13:4The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing;
But the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
13:5A righteous man hateth lying;
But a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame.
But wickedness overthroweth the sinner.
13:7There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing:
13:8The ransom of a man's life is his riches;
But the poor heareth no threatening.
13:9The light of the righteous rejoiceth;
But the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.
13:10By pride cometh only contention;
But with the well-advised is wisdom.
13:11Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished;
But he that gathereth by labor shall have increase.
13:13Whoso despiseth the word bringeth destruction on himself;
But he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.
That one may depart from the snares of death.
But the way of the transgressor is hard.
But a fool flaunteth his folly.
But a faithful ambassador is health.
13:18Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth correction; 1
But he that regardeth reproof shall be honored.
But it is an abomination to fools to depart from evil.
But the companion of fools shall smart for it.
13:21Evil pursueth sinners;
But the righteous shall be recompensed with good.
And the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the righteous.
But there is that is destroyed by reason of injustice.
13:24He that spareth his rod hateth his son;
But he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.
13:25The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul;
But the belly of the wicked shall want.
- him that refuseth correction. Why we should “launch forth happily and expectantly into The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity”. Catherine Ponder, Ch. 1.
