16 A gracious woman gains honor, but violent men gain only riches.
17 A kind man benefits himself, but a cruel man brings disaster on himself.
18 The wicked man earns an empty wage, but the one who sows righteousness, a true reward.
19 Genuine righteousness leads to life, but pursuing evil leads to death.
20 Those with twisted minds are detestable to the Lord, but those with blameless conduct are His delight.
Proverbs 11:16-20 (HCSB)
21 Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
22 As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.
23 The desire of the righteous is only good: but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.
24 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.
25 The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.
Proverbs 11:21-25 (KJV)
26 People will curse anyone who hoards grain, but a blessing will come to the one who sells it.
27 The one who searches for what is good finds favor, but if someone looks for trouble, it will come to him.
28 Anyone trusting in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like foliage.
29 The one who brings ruin on his household will inherit the wind, and a fool will be a slave to someone whose heart is wise.
Proverbs 11:26-29 (HCSB)
10 The name of Yahweh is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are protected.
Proverbs 18:10 (HCSB)
25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
John 21:25 (KJV)
18 For God’s wrath is revealed from heaven against all godlessness and unrighteousness of people who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth,
19 since what can be known about God is evident among them, because God has shown it to them.
20 For His invisible attributes, that is, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood through what He has made. As a result, people are without excuse.
21 For though they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God or show gratitude. Instead, their thinking became nonsense, and their senseless minds were darkened.
22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools
23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man, birds, four-footed animals, and reptiles.
Romans 1:18-23 (HCSB)
1 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
Romans 10:1 (KJV)
