Proverbs 11:15-11:31

There Is A Right Way - Part 2

  1. He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it: and he that hateth suretiship is sure.
  2. A gracious woman retaineth honour: and strong men retain riches.
  3. The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.
  4. The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward.
  5. As righteousness tendeth to life: so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death.
  6. They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the LORD: but such as are upright in their way are his delight.
  7. Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
  8. As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.
  9. The desire of the righteous is only good: but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.
  10. There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.
  11. The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.
  12. He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: but blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it.
  13. He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.
  14. He that trusteth in his riches shall fall; but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.
  15. He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart.
  16. The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
  17. Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner.
