Proverbs 12:15-25

PrayEveryDay

Today’s Scripture:

The way of fools seems right to them,
    but the wise listen to advice.

Fools show their annoyance at once,
    but the prudent overlook an insult.

An honest witness tells the truth,
    but a false witness tells lies.

The words of the reckless pierce like swords,
    but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Truthful lips endure forever,
    but a lying tongue lasts only a moment.

Deceit is in the hearts of those who plot evil,
    but those who promote peace have joy.

No harm overtakes the righteous,
    but the wicked have their fill of trouble.

The Lord detests lying lips,
    but he delights in people who are trustworthy.

The prudent keep their knowledge to themselves,
    but a fool’s heart blurts out folly.

Diligent hands will rule,
    but laziness ends in forced labor.

Anxiety weighs down the heart,
    but a kind word cheers it up.
