The Book of Proverbs Chapter 19 – New King James Version (NKJV) – Audio Bible

Chapter 19. Better is the poor who walks in his Integrity than one who is perverse in His lips and is a fool Also it is not good for a soul to be Without knowledge And he sins who hastens with his feet The foolishness of a man twists his way And his heart Frets against the Lord Wealth makes many friends but the poor Is separated from his friend A false witness will not go unpunished And he who speaks lies will not Escape Many entreat the favor of the nobility And every man is a friend to one who Gives gifts All the brothers of the poor hate him How much more do his friends go far from Him He may pursue them with words yet they Abandon him He who gets wisdom loves his own soul He who keeps understanding will find Good A false witness will not go unpunished And he who speaks lies Shall Perish Luxury is not fitting for a fool much Less for a servant to rule over princes The discretion of a man makes him slow To anger and His glory is to overlook a Transgression The king's wrath is like the Roaring of A lion But his favor is like Dew on the grass

A foolish son is the ruin of his father And the contentions of a wife are a Continual dripping Houses and riches are an inheritance From fathers but a Prudent Wife is from The Lord Laziness casts one into a deep sleep And an idol person will suffer hunger He who keeps the Commandment keeps his Soul But he who is careless of his ways will Die He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord and He will pay back what he has Given Chasten your son while there is hope and Do not set your heart on his destruction A man of great wrath will suffer Punishment For if you rescue him you will have to Do it again Listen to council and receive Instruction that you may be wise in your Latter days There are many plans in a man's heart Nevertheless the Lord's counsel that Will stand What is desired in a man is kindness And a poor man is better than a liar The fear of the Lord leads to life and He who has it will abide in satisfaction He will not be visited with evil A lazy man buries his hand in the bowl And will not so much as bring it to his

Mouth again Strike a scoffer and the simple will Become wary Rebuke one who has understanding and he Will discern knowledge He who mistreats his father and chases Away his mother is a son who causes Shame and brings reproach Cease listening to instruction my son And he will stray from the words of Knowledge A disreputable witness scorns Justice And the mouth of the wicked devours Iniquity Judgments are prepared for scoffers and Beatings for the backs of fools
