Proverbs 11:17-19 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)
17 A merciful man doeth well to his soul (A merciful person doeth good to his own soul); but he that is cruel, casteth away, yea, (even his own) kinsmen.
18 A wicked man maketh unstable work; but faithful meed is to him, that soweth rightfulness. (There is no surety with the work of the wicked; but there is a sure reward for those who sow goodness.)
19 Mercy shall make ready life; and the following of evil, death. (Mercy bringeth forth life; but death followeth after evil.)
Proverbs 11:17-19 New International Version (NIV)
17 Those who are kind benefit themselves,
18 A wicked person earns deceptive wages,
19 Truly the righteous attain life,
