  • Proverbs 24:23-34 October 24, 2020

    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.
