Wisdom, Patience, Work & Poverty

​The wise woman builds her house, But the foolish pulls it down with her hands. He who walks in his uprightness fears the Lord , But he  who  is perverse in his ways despises Him. In the mouth of a fool is a rod of pride, But the lips of the wise will preserve them. A scoffer seeks wisdom and does not find  it, But knowledge is easy to him who understands. Go from the presence of a foolish man, When you do not perceive in  him the lips of knowledge. The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way, But the folly of fools is deceit. Fools mock at sin, But among the upright there  is favor. The house of the wicked will be overthrown, But the tent of the upright will flourish. There is a way that  seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. The backslider in heart will be filled with his own ways, But a good man will  be  satisfied from above. The simple believes every word, But the prudent considers well his steps. A wise man fears and departs from evil, But a fool rages and is self-confident. A quick-tempered man acts foolishly, And a man of wicked intentions is hated. The simple inherit folly, But the prudent are crowned with knowledge. The evil will bow before the good, And the wicked at the gates of the righteous. The poor man is hated even by his own neighbor, But the rich has many friends. He who despises his neighbor sins; But he who has mercy on the poor, happy is he. Do they not go astray who devise evil? But mercy and truth belong to those who devise good. In all labor there is profit, But idle chatter leads only to poverty. The crown of the wise is their riches, But the foolishness of fools is folly. A true witness delivers souls, But a deceitful witness speaks lies. In the fear of the Lord  there  is strong confidence, And His children will have a place of refuge. The fear of the Lord  is a fountain of life, To turn one away from the snares of death. He  who  is slow to wrath has great understanding, But he  who  is impulsive exalts folly. A sound heart is life to the body, But envy is  rottenness to the bones. He who oppresses the poor reproaches his Maker, But he who honors Him has mercy on the needy. Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people. The king’s favor is toward a wise servant, But his wrath is  against him who causes shame. Proverbs 14:1‭-‬3‭, ‬6‭-‬9‭, ‬11‭-‬12‭, ‬14‭-‬27‭, ‬29‭-‬31‭, ‬34‭-‬35 NKJV
