Proverbs 13

13:2 A man shall eat good by the fruit a of [his] mouth: but the soul of the transgressors [shall eat] violence.

(a) If he uses his tongue to Godís glory, and the profit of his neighbour, God will bless him.
13:4 The soul of the sluggard b desireth, and [hath] nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
(b) He always desires, but takes no pains to get anything.
13:8 The ransom of a manís life [is] his riches: but the poor c heareth not rebuke.
(c) For his poverty, he is not able to escape the threatenings, which the cruel oppressors use against him.
13:10 Only by pride d cometh contention: but with the well advised [is] wisdom.
(d) When as every man contends to have preeminence, and will not give place to another.
13:11 e Wealth [gotten] by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth f by labour shall increase.
(e) That is, goods evil gotten.
(f) That is, with his own labour.
13:13 Whoever despiseth g the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.
(g) Meaning the word of God, by which he is admonished of his duty.
13:17 A wicked messenger falleth h into mischief: but a faithful ambassador [is] health.
(h) Brings many inconveniences both to himself and to others.
13:20 He that walketh with wise [men] shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be i destroyed.
(i) As he is partaker of their wickedness, and bears with their vices, so will he be punished alike as they are.
13:22 A good [man] leaveth an inheritance to his childrenís children: and the k wealth of the sinner [is] laid up for the just.

(k) Read (Job 27:16,17).
13:23 Much food [is in] the fallow ground of the l poor: but there is [that is] destroyed for lack of judgment.
(l) God blesses the labour of the poor, and consumes their goods who are negligent, because they think they have enough.
