Proverbs 19:10-17

Proverbs 19:10-17 CSB

Luxury is not appropriate for a fool — how much less for a slave to rule over princes! A person’s insight gives him patience, and his virtue is to overlook an offense. A king’s rage is like the roaring of a lion, but his favor is like dew on the grass. A foolish son is his father’s ruin, and a wife’s nagging is an endless dripping. A house and wealth are inherited from fathers, but a prudent wife is from the LORD. Laziness induces deep sleep, and a lazy person will go hungry. The one who keeps commands preserves himself; one who disregards his ways will die. Kindness to the poor is a loan to the LORD, and he will give a reward to the lender.
