« Proverbs 18 | Proverbs 19 | Proverbs 20 »
19:1 Better is a poor person who walks in his integritythan one who is crooked in speech and is a fool.
2 Desire without knowledge is not good,and whoever makes haste with his feet misses his way.
3 When a man’s folly brings his way to ruin,his heart rages against the Lord.
4 Wealth brings many new friends,but a poor man is deserted by his friend.
5 A false witness will not go unpunished,and he who breathes out lies will not escape.
6 Many seek the favor of a generous man,and everyone is a friend to a man who gives gifts.
7 All a poor man’s brothers hate him;how much more do his friends go far from him!He pursues them with words, but does not have them.
8 Whoever gets sense loves his own soul;he who keeps understanding will discover good.
9 A false witness will not go unpunished,and he who breathes out lies will perish.
10 It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury,much less for a slave to rule over princes.
11 Good sense makes one slow to anger,and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
12 A king’s wrath is like the growling of a lion,but his favor is like dew on the grass.
13 A foolish son is ruin to his father,and a wife’s quarreling is a continual dripping of rain.
14 House and wealth are inherited from fathers,but a prudent wife is from the Lord.
15 Slothfulness casts into a deep sleep,and an idle person will suffer hunger.
16 Whoever keeps the commandment keeps his life;he who despises his ways will die.
17 Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord,and he will repay him for his deed.
18 Discipline your son, for there is hope;do not set your heart on putting him to death.
19 A man of great wrath will pay the penalty,for if you deliver him, you will only have to do it again.
20 Listen to advice and accept instruction,that you may gain wisdom in the future.
21 Many are the plans in the mind of a man,but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.
22 What is desired in a man is steadfast love,and a poor man is better than a liar.
23 The fear of the Lord leads to life,and whoever has it rests satisfied;he will not be visited by harm.
24 The sluggard buries his hand in the dishand will not even bring it back to his mouth.
25 Strike a scoffer, and the simple will learn prudence;reprove a man of understanding, and he will gain knowledge.
26 He who does violence to his father and chases away his motheris a son who brings shame and reproach.
27 Cease to hear instruction, my son,and you will stray from the words of knowledge.
28 A worthless witness mocks at justice,and the mouth of the wicked devours iniquity.
29 Condemnation is ready for scoffers,and beating for the backs of fools.
« Galatians 4 | Galatians 5 | Galatians 6 »
Christ Has Set Us Free 5:1 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
2 Look: I, Paul, say to you that if you accept circumcision, Christ will be of no advantage to you.
3 I testify again to every man who accepts circumcision that he is obligated to keep the whole law.
4 You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law; you have fallen away from grace.
5 For through the Spirit, by faith, we ourselves eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness.
6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love.
7 You were running well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth?
8 This persuasion is not from him who calls you.
9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump.
10 I have confidence in the Lord that you will take no other view, and the one who is troubling you will bear the penalty, whoever he is.
11 But if I, brothers, still preach circumcision, why am I still being persecuted? In that case the offense of the cross has been removed.
12 I wish those who unsettle you would emasculate themselves!
13 For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
15 But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another.
Keep in Step with the Spirit16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
17 For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.
18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality,
20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions,
21 envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit.
26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.
