Proverbs 19:20-25

View Full Chapter

20Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise.

21Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD ’s purpose that prevails.

22What a person desires is unfailing love Or Greed is a person’s shame ; better to be poor than a liar.

23The fear of the LORD leads to life; then one rests content, untouched by trouble.

24A sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not even bring it back to his mouth!

25Flog a mocker, and the simple will learn prudence; rebuke the discerning, and they will gain knowledge.
