Proverbs 17:24
Context
Better a Dry Morsel with Quietness

1Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife. 2A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causes shame, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brothers. 3The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD tries the hearts. 4A wicked doer gives heed to false lips; and a liar gives ear to a naughty tongue. 5Whoever mocks the poor reproaches his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished. 6Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers. 7Excellent speech becomes not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince. 8A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that has it: wherever it turns, it prospers. 9He that covers a transgression seeks love; but he that repeats a matter separates very friends. 10A reproof enters more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool. 11An evil man seeks only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him. 12Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man, rather than a fool in his folly. 13Whoever rewards evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house. 14The beginning of strife is as when one lets out water: therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with. 15He that justifies the wicked, and he that comdemns the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD. 16Why is there a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing he has no heart to it? 17A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. 18A man void of understanding strikes hands, and becomes surety in the presence of his friend. 19He loves transgression that loves strife: and he that exalts his gate seeks destruction. 20He that has a fraudulent heart finds no good: and he that has a perverse tongue falls into mischief. 21He that begets a fool does it to his sorrow: and the father of a fool has no joy. 22A merry heart does good like a medicine: but a broken spirit dries the bones. 23A wicked man takes a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment. 24Wisdom is before him that has understanding; but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth. 25A foolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to her that bore him. 26Also to punish the just is not good, nor to strike princes for equity. 27He that has knowledge spares his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit. 28Even a fool, when he holds his peace, is counted wise: and he that shuts his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.
