Serving God, Changing Lives

Proverbs 24:23-34

23These also are sayings of the wise:
Partiality in judging is not good.
24Whoever says to the wicked, “You are innocent,”
will be cursed by peoples, abhorred by nations;
25but those who rebuke the wicked will have delight,
and a good blessing will come upon them.
26One who gives an honest answer
gives a kiss on the lips.
27Prepare your work outside,
get everything ready for you in the field;
and after that build your house.
28Do not be a witness against your neighbor without cause,
and do not deceive with your lips.
29Do not say, “I will do to others as they have done to me;
I will pay them back for what they have done.”
30I passed by the field of one who was lazy,
by the vineyard of a stupid person;
31and see, it was all overgrown with thorns;
the ground was covered with nettles,
and its stone wall was broken down.
32Then I saw and considered it;
I looked and received instruction.
33A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest,
34and poverty will come upon you like a robber,
and want, like an armed warrior.
