Proverbs 13:1-4

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 13

1 A wise son accepts his father’s discipline, But a scoffer does not listen to rebuke. 2 From the fruit of a person’s mouth he enjoys good, But the desire of the treacherous is violence. 3 One who guards his mouth protects his life; One who opens wide his lips comes to ruin. 4 The soul of the lazy one craves and gets nothing, But the soul of the diligent is made prosperous.
King James Version

Chapter 13

1 A wise son heareth his father's instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke.
2 A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.
3 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.
4 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
