Holman Christian Standard Bible
13 A wise son responds to his father’s discipline,
but a mocker doesn’t listen to rebuke.
4 The slacker craves, yet has nothing,
but the diligent is fully satisfied.(E)
5 The righteous hate lying,
but the wicked act disgustingly and disgracefully.
8 Riches are a ransom for a man’s life,(I)
but a poor man hears no threat.
10 Arrogance leads to nothing but strife,(L)
but wisdom is gained by those who take advice.
12 Delayed hope makes the heart sick,
but fulfilled desire is a tree of life.(O)
16 Every sensible person acts knowledgeably,
but a fool displays his stupidity.(U)
17 A wicked messenger falls into trouble,
but a trustworthy courier brings healing.(V)
18 Poverty and disgrace come to those
who ignore discipline,
but the one who accepts correction will be honored.(W)
19 Desire fulfilled is sweet to the taste,
but to turn from evil(X)
is an abomination to fools.
20 The one who walks with the wise will become wise,
but a companion of fools will suffer harm.
21 Disaster pursues sinners,
but good rewards the righteous.(Y)
23 The uncultivated field of the poor yields abundant food,
but without justice, it is swept away.
25 A righteous man eats until he is satisfied,
but the stomach of the wicked is empty.(AC)
