Righteousness And Wickedness

Proverbs 13:6-13 (NKJV)

6 Righteousness guards him whose way is blameless, But wickedness overthrows the sinner.

7 There is one who makes himself rich, yet has nothing; And one who makes himself poor, yet has great riches.

8 The ransom of a man’s life is his riches, But the poor does not hear rebuke.

9 The light of the righteous rejoices, But the lamp of the wicked will be put out.

10 By pride comes nothing but strife, But with the well-advised is wisdom.

11 Wealth gained by dishonesty will be diminished, But he who gathers by labor will increase.

12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.

13 He who despises the word will be destroyed, But he who fears the commandment will be rewarded.
