BRAGADAYJAH 1582 Proverbs 12 Verses 15-28 Righteousness and Wickedness Contrasted The way of a fool is right in his own eyes; but that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise. A fool’s wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covereth shame. He that speaketh truth showeth forth righteousness; but a false witness deceit. There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword; but the tongue of the wise is health. The lip of truth shall be established forever; but a lying tongue is but for a moment. Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil; but to the counsellors of peace is joy. There shall no evil happen to the just; but the wicked shall be filled with mischief. Lying lips are abomination to the Lord; but they that deal truly are His delight. A prudent man concealeth knowledge; but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness. The hand of the diligent shall bear rule; but the slothful shall be under tribute. Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop; but a good word maketh it glad. The righteous is more excellent than his neighbor; but the way of the wicked seduceth them. The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting; but the substance of a diligent man is precious. In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death.
