RF PRO 17:1 A dry crust is better, with peace,
Than a house of rich food with strife.
RF PRO 17:2 A wise servant rules a bad son,
And will take his share with the brothers,
RF PRO 17:3 The flaming furnace for silver and gold,
But the LORD is the tester of hearts.
RF PRO 17:4 The wicked seeks for evil lips;
The liar attends to a traitor's tongue!
RF PRO 17:5 Who laughs at the poor insults his Maker;—
Who delights in suffering, will suffer.
RF PRO 17:6 An old man's crown are the sons of his son;
And their father's the honour of children,
RF PRO 17:7 An eloquent lip becomes not a brute;
Nor do lying lips a noble.
RF PRO 17:8 Talent is a gem in the eyes of its owner,
To whatever it turns he prospers.
RF PRO 17:9 Who hides a fault will gain affection,
But to report, repels your friends.
RF PRO 17:10 A reproof impresses good sense,
More than a hundred stripes a fool!
RF PRO 17:11 The seditious seek sure mischief,
And sends an agent to punish himself!
RF PRO 17:12 Let a man meet a bear bereaved,
Before a fool in his folly!
RF PRO 17:13 Who repays a good turn with wrong,
Distress departs not from his house.
RF PRO 17:14 Starting strife is water poured out,
So refrain before strife is begun.
RF PRO 17:15 Acquitting the bad, and convicting the good,
Both alike are disgusting the LORD.
RF PRO 17:16 What use is cash in the hand of a fool,
To buy wisdom, when he has no sense?
RF PRO 17:17 At all times a friend will love you—
But a brother for distress, must be born.
RF PRO 17:18 A senseless man strikes hands,
As a bond on behalf of his friend.
RF PRO 17:19 He who loves to do wrong loves strife,
Who exalts his gate seeks destruction.
RF PRO 17:20 A spiteful heart finds nothing good;
And a vile tongue falls into trouble.
RF PRO 17:21 He grieves himself who begets a fool;
And a brute's father will not rejoice.
RF PRO 17:22 The best medicine is a cheerful heart;
But a loaded mind exhausts the frame.
RF PRO 17:23 The wicked takes a bribe from the purse,
To deprave the paths of justice.
RF PRO 17:24 The reflective have wisdom before them;
It is far from the eyes of a fool!
RF PRO 17:25 A foolish son provokes his father,
And embitters her who bore him.
RF PRO 17:26 It is never right to fine the good,
Or to strike the noble for justice.
RF PRO 17:27 The man who knows will spare his words,
And the temper of the wise is cool.
RF PRO 17:28 A silent fool is considered wise,
And the close-lipped are held to be knowing.


AKJV ROM 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
