13:16 Every prudent man worketh with knowledge; But a fool flaunteth `his' folly.

13:17 A wicked messenger falleth into evil; But a faithful ambassador is health.

13:18 Poverty and shame `shall be to' him that refuseth correction; But he that regardeth reproof shall be honored.

13:19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul; But it is an abomination to fools to depart from evil.

13:20 Walk with wise men, and thou shalt be wise; But the companion of fools shall smart for it.

13:21 Evil pursueth sinners; But the righteous shall be recompensed with good.

13:22 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children; And the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the righteous.

13:23 Much food `is in' the tillage of the poor; But there is that is destroyed by reason of injustice.

13:24 He that spareth his rod hateth his son; But he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.

13:25 The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul; But the belly of the wicked shall want.
