Proverbs 14:20-28 Names of God Bible (NOG)
20 A poor person is hated even by his neighbor,
but a rich person is loved by many.
21 Whoever despises his neighbor sins,
but blessed is the one who is kind to humble people.
22 Don’t those who stray plan what is evil,
while those who are merciful and faithful plan what is good?
23 In hard work there is always something gained,
but idle talk leads only to poverty.
24 The crown of wise people is their wealth.
The stupidity of fools is just that—stupidity!
25 An honest witness saves lives,
but one who tells lies is dangerous.
26 In the fear of Yahweh there is strong confidence,
and his children will have a place of refuge.
27 The fear of Yahweh is a fountain of life
to turn one away from the grasp of death.
28 A large population is an honor for a king,
but without people a ruler is ruined.
