Proverbs 10:16-21 The activity of the righteous is for life;
the income of the wicked is for sin. 17 He who observes discipline is on the way to life;
but he who ignores correction is making a mistake. 18 He who covers up hate has lips that lie,
and anyone who slanders is a fool.
19 When words are many, sin is not lacking;
so he who controls his speech is wise.
20 The tongue of the righteous is like pure silver,
but the mind of the wicked is worth little.
Proverbs 10:11-15 The speech of the righteous is a fountain of life,
but the speech of the wicked is a cover for violence. 12 Hate stirs up disputes,
but love covers all kinds of transgressions. 13 On the lips of the intelligent is found wisdom,
but a stick is in store for the back of a fool.
14 Wise people hide their knowledge,
but when a fool speaks, ruin is imminent. 15 The wealth of the rich is his fortified city;
the ruin of the poor is their poverty.
Proverbs 9:13-18 The foolish woman is coarse; she doesn’t think, and she doesn’t know a thing. 14 She sits at the door of her house or on a seat at the heights of the city, 15 calling to those who pass by, to those going straight along their ways, 16 “Whoever is unsure of himself, turn in here!” To someone weak-willed she says, 17 “Stolen water is sweet; food eaten in secret is pleasant.” 18 But he doesn’t realize that the dead are there, and that those who accept her invitat
Proverbs 9:7-12 “He who corrects a scoffer only gets insulted; reproving a wicked man becomes his blemish. 8 If you reprove a scoffer, he will hate you; if you reprove a wise man, he will love you. 9 Give to a wise man, and he grows still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will learn still more. 10 The fear of Adonai is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of holy ones is understanding. 11 For with me, your days will be increased; years will be added to your life. 12 If y
Proverbs 8:32-36 “Therefore, children, listen to me: happy are those who keep my ways. 33 Hear instruction, and grow wise; do not refuse it. 34 How happy the person who listens to me, who watches daily at my gates and waits outside my doors. 35 For he who finds me finds life and obtains the favor of Adonai. 36 But he who misses me harms himself; all who hate me love death.” HAPPY!!! So many people in the world are trying to find happiness. All they have to do is listen to wis
Proverbs 6:20-23 My son, obey your father’s command, and don’t abandon your mother’s teaching. 21 Bind them always on your heart, tie them around your neck. 22 When you walk, they will lead you; when you lie down, they will watch over you; and when you wake up, they will talk with you. 23 For the mitzvah is a lamp, Torah is light, and reproofs that discipline are the way to life. These are some of my favorite verses in Proverbs. There is no way to break this down because it a
Proverbs 6:6-11 Go to the ant, you lazybones!
Consider its ways, and be wise.
7 It has no chief, overseer or ruler;
8 yet it provides its food in summer
and gathers its supplies at harvest-time.
9 Lazybones! How long will you lie there in bed?
When will you get up from your sleep?
10 “I’ll just lie here a bit, rest a little longer,
just fold my hands for a little more sleep” —
11 and poverty comes marching in on you,
scarcity hits you like an invading soldier. Go to the ant..
Proverbs 6:1-5 My son, if you have put up security for your friend, if you committed yourself on behalf of another; 2 you have been snared by the words of your mouth, caught by the words of your own mouth. 3 Do this now, my son, and extricate yourself, since you put yourself in your friend’s power: go, humble yourself, and pester your friend; 4 give your eyes no sleep, give your eyelids no rest; 5 break free, like a gazelle from the [hunter’s] trap, like a bird from the grip
Proverbs 5:1-14 My son, pay attention to my wisdom;
incline your ear to my understanding;
2 so that you will preserve discretion
and your lips keep watch over knowledge. 3 For the lips of a woman who is a stranger drop honey,
her mouth is smoother than oil;
4 but in the end she is as bitter as wormwood,
sharp as a double-edged sword.
5 Her feet go down to death,
her steps lead straight to Sh’ol;
6 she doesn’t walk the level path of life —
her course wanders all over, but she
Proverbs 4:20-27 My son, pay attention to what I am saying;
incline your ear to my words.
21 Don’t let them out of your sight,
keep them deep in your heart;
22 for they are life to those who find them
and health to their whole being. 23 Above everything else, guard your heart;
for it is the source of life’s consequences.
24 Keep crooked speech out of your mouth,
banish deceit from your lips.
25 Let your eyes look straight ahead,
fix your gaze on what lies in front of you.
