Twenty-Five Proverbs to Mull Over

  Trust in the LORD with all your heart        and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him,        and he will make your paths straight. (3:5-6)   Work Lazy hands make a man poor,        but diligent hands bring wealth. (10:4)     He who works his land will have abundant food,        but he who chases fantasies lacks judgment. (12:11)   Words He who guards his lips guards his life,        but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin. (13:3)   The tongue has the power of life and death,        and those who love it will eat its fruit. (18:21)     For lack of guidance a nation falls,        but many advisers make victory sure. (11:14)   He who listens to a life-giving rebuke        will be at home among the wise. (15:31)   A gossip betrays a confidence;        so avoid a man who talks too much. (20:19)   Wages Dishonest money dwindles away,        but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow.
