Pristine Grace

Prov 18:1-24, (LITV)
1  He who separates himself seeks his own desire, he breaks out against all sound wisdom.
2  A fool has no delight in understanding, but only in uncovering his heart.
3  When the wicked comes, scorn also comes, and with shame comes reproach.
4  The words of a man's mouth are like deep waters, the fountain of wisdom like a flowing stream.
5  To lift up the face of the wicked is not good, nor to turn aside the righteous in judgment.
6  A fool's lips enter into strife, and his mouth calls for strokes.
7  A fool's mouth is his destruction, and his lips are a snare of his soul.
8  The words of a slanderer are greedily swallowed; yea, they go down into the innermost chambers of the belly.
9  And he who is slack in his work, he is a brother to a master destroyer.
10  The name of Jehovah is a tower of strength, the righteous runs into it and is set on high.
11  The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as a high wall in his imagination.
12  Before shattering, a man's heart is haughty, but humility goes before honor.
13  If one rejects a matter before he hears, it is folly and shame to him.
14  The spirit of a man will nourish his sickness, but who can bear a wounded spirit?
15  The heart of the prudent gets knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
16  A man's gift makes room for him and brings him before great men.
17   He who is first in his cause seems just, but his neighbor comes and searches him.
18  The lot causes arguments to cease, and divides between the mighty.
19  An offended brother is worse than a fortified city; yea, their contentions are like the bars of a castle.
20  A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; he shall be satisfied with the produce of his lips.
21  Death and life are in the hand of the tongue, and those who love it shall eat its fruit.
22   Whoever finds a wife finds good, and gets favor from Jehovah.
23  The poor speak with entreaties, but the rich answer fiercely.
24  A man of friends may be broken up, but there is a Lover who sticks closer than a brother.
