Proverbs 18

1 - Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh [and] intermeddleth with all wisdom.
2 - A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.
3 - When the wicked cometh, [then] cometh also contempt, and with ignominy reproach.
4 - The words of a man's mouth [are as] deep waters, [and] the wellspring of wisdom [as] a flowing brook.
5 - [It is] not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment.
6 - A fool's lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for strokes.
7 - A fool's mouth [is] his destruction, and his lips [are] the snare of his soul.
8 - The words of a talebearer [are] as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
9 - He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.
10 - The name of the LORD [is] a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
11 - The rich man's wealth [is] his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit.
12 - Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour [is] humility.
13 - He that answereth a matter before he heareth [it], it [is] folly and shame unto him.
14 - The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?
15 - The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.
16 - A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.
17 - [He that is] first in his own cause [seemeth] just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.
18 - The lot causeth contentions to cease, and parteth between the mighty.
19 - A brother offended [is harder to be won] than a strong city: and [their] contentions [are] like the bars of a castle.
20 - A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; [and] with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.
21 - Death and life [are] in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
22 - [Whoso] findeth a wife findeth a good [thing], and obtaineth favour of the LORD.
23 - The poor useth intreaties; but the rich answereth roughly.
24 - A man [that hath] friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend [that] sticketh closer than a brother.
