New King James Version
13 Even in laughter the heart may sorrow,
And (A)the end of mirth may be grief.
15 The simple believes every word,
But the prudent considers well his steps.
16 (D)A wise man fears and departs from evil,
But a fool rages and is self-confident.
17 A quick-tempered man acts foolishly,
And a man of wicked intentions is hated.
18 The simple inherit folly,
But the prudent are crowned with knowledge.
19 The evil will bow before the good,
And the wicked at the gates of the righteous.
22 Do they not go astray who devise evil?
But mercy and truth belong to those who devise good.
23 In all labor there is profit,
But [c]idle chatter leads only to poverty.
24 The crown of the wise is their riches,
But the foolishness of fools is folly.
