1 The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.
8 The wise in heart accept commands, but a chattering fool comes to ruin.
18 He who conceals his hatred has lying lips, and whoever spreads slander is a fool.
23 A fool finds pleasure in evil conduct, but a man of understanding delights in wisdom.
19 A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul, but fools detest turning from evil.
16 A wise man fears the LORD and shuns evil, but a fool is hotheaded and reckless. 17 A quick-tempered man does foolish things, and a crafty man is hated.
11 As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his folly.
3 A fool's talk brings a rod to his back, but the lips of the wise protect them.
16 And he told them this parable: "The ground of a certain rich man produced a good crop. 17 He thought to himself, 'What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.' 18 "Then he said, 'This is what I'll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I'll say to myself, "You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry." ' 20 "But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?' 21 "This is how it will be with anyone who stores up things for himself but is not rich toward God."
17 Some became fools through their rebellious ways and suffered affliction because of their iniquities. 18 They loathed all food and drew near the gates of death. 19 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. 20 He sent forth his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. 21 Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men. 22 Let them sacrifice thank offerings and tell of his works with songs of joy.
