Proverbs 17:2-4 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
2 A wise slave will become master over a son who acts shamefully,
and he will share the inheritance with the brothers.
3 The crucible is for refining silver and the smelter for gold,
but the one who purifies hearts by fire is the Lord.
4 An evildoer pays attention to wicked lips.
A liar opens his ears to a slanderous tongue.
