BRAGADAYJAH 1584 Proverbs 13: Verses 13-25. Righteousness and Wickedness Contrasted Whoso despiseth the word, shall be destroyed; but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded. The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. Good understanding giveth favour; but the way of transgressors is hard. Every prudent man, dealeth with knowledge; but a fool layeth open his folly. A wicked messenger falleth into mischief; but a faithful ambassador is health. Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction; but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured. The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul; but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil. He that walketh with wise men shall be wise; but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. Evil pursueth sinners; but to the righteous, good shall be repaid. A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children; and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just. Much food is in the tillage of the poor; but there is that is destroyed for want of judgment. He that spareth his rod; hateth his son; but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes. The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul; but the belly of the wicked shall want.
