Proverbs 6:32–33; Proverbs 9:7; Proverbs 10:7; Proverbs 20:11; Proverbs 22:1; Proverbs 27:14; Proverbs 27:21

32  He who commits adultery lacks sense;

he who does it destroys himself.

33  He will get wounds and dishonor,

and his disgrace will not be wiped away.


Whoever corrects a scoffer gets himself abuse,

and he who reproves a wicked man incurs injury.


oThe memory of the righteous is a blessing,

but pthe name of the wicked will rot.


11  Even a child pmakes himself known by his acts,

by whether his conduct is pure and upright.1


22  pA good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,

and favor is better than silver or gold.


14  Whoever blesses his neighbor with a loud voice,

rising early in the morning,

will be counted as cursing.


21  wThe crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold,

and a man is tested by his praise.
