Proverbs 18 - AMP

2 A fool has no delight in understanding but only in revealing his personal opinions and himself. 3 When the wicked comes in , he becomes a contemptuous despiser , and with inner baseness comes outer shame and reproach. 4 The words of a man's mouth are like deep waters , and the fountain of skillful and godly Wisdom is like a gushing stream . 5 To respect the person of the wicked and be partial to him, so as to deprive the righteous of justice, is not good. 6 A fool's lips bring contention, and his mouth invites a beating. 7 A fool's mouth is his ruin, and his lips are a snare to himself. 8 The words of a whisperer or talebearer are as dainty morsels; they go down into the innermost parts of the body. 9 He who is loose and slack in his work is brother to him who is a destroyer and This verse so reads in The Septuagint (Greek translation of the Old Testament). Its statement squarely addresses the problem of whether one has a moral right to neglect his body by ``letting nature take its unhindered course" in illness.he who does not use his endeavors to heal himself is brother to him who commits suicide. 10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe, high and strong. 11 The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as a high protecting wall in his own imagination and conceit. 12 Haughtiness comes before disaster, but humility before honor. 13 He who answers a matter before he hears the facts--it is folly and shame to him. 14 The strong spirit of a man sustains him in bodily pain or trouble, but a weak and broken spirit who can raise up or bear? 15 The mind of the prudent is ever getting knowledge, and the ear of the wise is ever seeking (inquiring for and craving) knowledge. 16 A man's gift makes room for him and brings him before great men. 17 He who states his case first seems right, until his rival comes and cross-examines him. 18 To cast lots puts an end to disputes and decides between powerful contenders. 19 A brother offended is harder to be won over than a strong city, and contentions separate them like the bars of a castle. 20 A man's self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; and with the consequence of his words he must be satisfied . 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it . 22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord. 23 The poor man uses entreaties, but the rich answers roughly. 24 The man of many friends will prove himself a bad friend, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Shared by: David Radcliff on Jul, 2016
Summary: Man was not made for solitude. He has a craving for fellowship and sympathy which can be satisfied only in the conscious possession of the affection of another. A true friend therefore, is one of the best of blessings. I rejoice that in Jesus we have a friend that stays closer than a brother.
