Proverbs 13:23
Context
A Wise Son Heeds his Father's Instruction

1A wise son hears his father's instruction: but a scorner hears not rebuke. 2A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence. 3He that keeps his mouth keeps his life: but he that opens wide his lips shall have destruction. 4The soul of the sluggard desires, and has nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat. 5A righteous man hates lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, and comes to shame. 6Righteousness keeps him that is upright in the way: but wickedness overthrows the sinner. 7There is that makes himself rich, yet has nothing: there is that makes himself poor, yet has great riches. 8The ransom of a man's life are his riches: but the poor hears not rebuke. 9The light of the righteous rejoices: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out. 10Only by pride comes contention: but with the well advised is wisdom. 11Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathers by labor shall increase. 12Hope deferred makes the heart sick: but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life. 13Whoever despises the word shall be destroyed: but he that fears the commandment shall be rewarded. 14The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. 15Good understanding gives favor: but the way of transgressors is hard. 16Every prudent man deals with knowledge: but a fool lays open his folly. 17A wicked messenger falls into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health. 18Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuses instruction: but he that regards reproof shall be honored. 19The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil. 20He that walks with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. 21Evil pursues sinners: but to the righteous good shall be repaid. 22A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just. 23Much food is in the tillage of the poor: but there is that is destroyed for want of judgment. 24He that spares his rod hates his son: but he that loves him chastens him betimes. 25The righteous eats to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want.
