Gleanings from Proverbs 10

Ill-gotten gains do not profit, but righteousness delivers from death. …

Poor is he who works with a negligent hand, but the hand of the diligent makes rich. He who gathers in summer is a son who acts wisely, but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who acts shamefully. …

He who walks in integrity walks securely, but he who perverts his ways will be found out. …

Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all transgressions. …

Wise men store up knowledge, but with the mouth of the foolish, ruin is at hand. …

He is on the path of life who heeds instruction, but he who ignores reproof goes astray. He who conceals hatred has lying lips, and he who spreads slander is a fool. When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable, but he who restrains his lips is wise. …

What the wicked fears will come upon him, but the desire of the righteous will be granted.
