NASB — Proverbs 10 — KJV

Contrast of the Righteous and the Wicked

1 The aproverbs of Solomon.
  bA wise son makes a father glad,
  But ca foolish son is a grief to his mother.
  2 IaIll-gotten gains do not profit,
  But righteousness delivers from death.
  3 The LORD awill not allow the Irighteous to hunger,
  But He bwill IIreject the craving of the wicked.
  4 Poor is he who works with a negligent hand,
  But the ahand of the diligent makes rich.
  5 He who gathers in summer is a son who acts wisely,
  [But] he who sleeps in harvest is a son who acts shamefully.
  6 aBlessings are on the head of the righteous,
  But bthe mouth of the wicked conceals violence.
  7 The amemory of the righteous is blessed,
  But bthe name of the wicked will rot.
  8 The awise of heart will receive commands,
  But Ia babbling fool will be IIruined.
  9 He awho walks in integrity walks securely,
  But bhe who perverts his ways will be found out.
  10 He awho winks the eye causes trouble,
  And Iba babbling fool will be IIruined.
  11 The amouth of the righteous is a fountain of life,
  But bthe mouth of the wicked conceals violence.
  12 Hatred stirs up strife,
  But alove covers all transgressions.
  13 On athe lips of the discerning, wisdom is found,
  But ba rod is for the back of him who lacks Iunderstanding.
  14 Wise men astore up knowledge,
  But with bthe mouth of the foolish, ruin is at hand.
  15 The arich man’s wealth is his Ifortress,
  The bruin of the poor is their poverty.
  16 The Iawages of the righteous is life,
  The income of the wicked, punishment.
  17 He ais [on] the path of life who heeds instruction,
  But he who ignores reproof goes astray.
  18 He awho conceals hatred [has] lying lips,
  And he who spreads slander is a fool.
  19 When there are amany words, transgression is unavoidable,
  But bhe who restrains his lips is wise.
  20 The tongue of the righteous is [as] achoice silver,
  The heart of the wicked is [worth] little.
  21 The alips of the righteous feed many,
  But fools bdie for lack of Iunderstanding.
  22 It is the ablessing of the LORD that makes rich,
  And He adds no sorrow to it.
  23 Doing wickedness is like asport to a fool,
  And [so is] wisdom to a man of understanding.
  24 What athe wicked fears will come upon him,
  But the bdesire of the righteous will be granted.
  25 When the awhirlwind passes, the wicked is no more,
  But the brighteous [has] an everlasting foundation.
  26 Like vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes,
  So is the alazy one to those who send him.
  27 The afear of the LORD prolongs Ilife,
  But the byears of the wicked will be shortened.
  28 The ahope of the righteous is gladness,
  But the bexpectation of the wicked perishes.
  29 The away of the LORD is a stronghold to the upright,
  But bruin to the workers of iniquity.
  30 The arighteous will never be shaken,
  But bthe wicked will not dwell in the land.
  31 The amouth of the righteous flows with wisdom,
  But the bperverted tongue will be cut out.
  32 The lips of the righteous bring forth awhat is acceptable,
  But the bmouth of the wicked what is perverted.

Sundry observations of moral virtues, and their contrary vices (10-24).

1 ¶ The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son [is] the heaviness of his mother. 2 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death. 3 The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked. 4 He becometh poor that dealeth [with] a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich. 5 He that gathereth in summer [is] a wise son: [but] he that sleepeth in harvest [is] a son that causeth shame. 6 Blessings [are] upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked. 7 The memory of the just [is] blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot. 8 The wise in heart will receive commandments: but a prating fool shall fall. 9 He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known. 10 He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a prating fool shall fall. 11 The mouth of a righteous [man is] a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked. 12 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins. 13 In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod [is] for the back of him that is void of understanding. 14 Wise [men] lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish [is] near destruction. 15 The rich man's wealth [is] his strong city: the destruction of the poor [is] their poverty. 16 The labour of the righteous [tendeth] to life: the fruit of the wicked to sin. 17 He [is in] the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth. 18 He that hideth hatred [with] lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, [is] a fool. 19 In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips [is] wise. 20 The tongue of the just [is as] choice silver: the heart of the wicked [is] little worth. 21 The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom. 22 The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. 23 [It is] as sport to a fool to do mischief: but a man of understanding hath wisdom. 24 The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him: but the desire of the righteous shall be granted. 25 As the whirlwind passeth, so [is] the wicked no [more]: but the righteous [is] an everlasting foundation. 26 As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so [is] the sluggard to them that send him. 27 The fear of the LORD prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened. 28 The hope of the righteous [shall be] gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish. 29 The way of the LORD [is] strength to the upright: but destruction [shall be] to the workers of iniquity. 30 The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth. 31 The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be cut out. 32 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked [speaketh] frowardness.
