A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children,But the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.
And by the fear of the Lord one departs from evil.
The fear of the Lord leads to life,And he who has it will abide in satisfaction;He will not be visited with evil.
There is a way that seems right to a man,But its end is the way of death.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,And lean not on your own understanding;6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
A quick-tempered man acts foolishly,And a man of wicked intentions is hated.
He who is slow to wrath has great understanding,But he who is impulsive exalts folly.
So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath;
“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all.”
Ecclesiastes 12:13 NKJV
