箴言 12

1喜爱管教的喜爱知识,
    厌恶责备的愚不可及。
善良的人蒙耶和华赐恩,
    诡诈的人被耶和华定罪。
人不能靠恶行坚立自己,
    义人的根基却不会动摇。
贤德的妻子是丈夫的冠冕,
    无耻的妻子如丈夫的骨瘤。
义人的心思公平正直,
    恶人的计谋阴险诡诈。
恶人的言语暗藏杀机,
    正直人的口拯救生命。
恶人覆灭不复存在,
    义人的家屹立不倒。
人有智慧受称赞,
    心术不正遭唾弃。
地位卑微却有仆人,
    胜过自高却饿肚子。
10 义人顾惜自己的牲畜,
    恶人的怜悯也是残忍。
11 努力耕耘者丰衣足食;
    追求虚荣者愚不可及。
12 恶人贪恋坏人的赃物,
    义人的根结出硕果。
13 恶人被自己的恶言所困,
    但义人可以脱离险境。
14 口出良言,饱尝美福;
    双手勤劳,终得回报。
15 愚人自以为是,
    智者肯听劝诫。
16 愚人难压怒气,
    明哲忍辱负重。
17 忠实的证人讲真话,
    作伪证者满口谎言。
18 出言不慎犹如利剑伤人,
    智者之言却能医治创伤。
19 诚实的口永远长存,
    撒谎的舌转瞬即逝。
20 图谋恶事的心怀诡诈,
    劝人和睦的喜乐洋溢。
21 义人无往不利,
    恶人灾祸连连。
22 耶和华厌恶说谎的嘴,
    祂喜爱行为诚实的人。
23 明哲不露锋芒,
    愚人心吐愚昧。
24 殷勤的手必掌权,
    懒惰者必做奴仆。
25 忧虑的心使人消沉,
    一句良言振奋人心。
26 义人引人走正路,
    恶人领人入歧途。
27 懒汉不烤猎物,
    勤快人得资财。
28 公义的道上有生命,
    公义的路上无死亡。

New Living Translation

Proverbs 12

1To learn, you must love discipline;
    it is stupid to hate correction.

The Lord approves of those who are good,
    but he condemns those who plan wickedness.

Wickedness never brings stability,
    but the godly have deep roots.

A worthy wife is a crown for her husband,
    but a disgraceful woman is like cancer in his bones.

The plans of the godly are just;
    the advice of the wicked is treacherous.

The words of the wicked are like a murderous ambush,
    but the words of the godly save lives.

The wicked die and disappear,
    but the family of the godly stands firm.

A sensible person wins admiration,
    but a warped mind is despised.

Better to be an ordinary person with a servant
    than to be self-important but have no food.

10 The godly care for their animals,
    but the wicked are always cruel.

11 A hard worker has plenty of food,
    but a person who chases fantasies has no sense.

12 Thieves are jealous of each other’s loot,
    but the godly are well rooted and bear their own fruit.

13 The wicked are trapped by their own words,
    but the godly escape such trouble.

14 Wise words bring many benefits,
    and hard work brings rewards.

15 Fools think their own way is right,
    but the wise listen to others.

16 A fool is quick-tempered,
    but a wise person stays calm when insulted.

17 An honest witness tells the truth;
    a false witness tells lies.

18 Some people make cutting remarks,
    but the words of the wise bring healing.

19 Truthful words stand the test of time,
    but lies are soon exposed.

20 Deceit fills hearts that are plotting evil;
    joy fills hearts that are planning peace!

21 No harm comes to the godly,
    but the wicked have their fill of trouble.

22 The Lord detests lying lips,
    but he delights in those who tell the truth.

23 The wise don’t make a show of their knowledge,
    but fools broadcast their foolishness.

24 Work hard and become a leader;
    be lazy and become a slave.

25 Worry weighs a person down;
    an encouraging word cheers a person up.

26 The godly give good advice to their friends;[a]
    the wicked lead them astray.

27 Lazy people don’t even cook the game they catch,
    but the diligent make use of everything they find.

28 The way of the godly leads to life;
    that path does not lead to death.
