« Proverbs 17:6 »

NIV KJV ESV NKJV
X
NIV
Children’s children are the crown of old men, And the glory of children is their father.Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children.
Excellent speech is not becoming to a fool, Much less lying lips to a prince.Eloquent lips are unsuited to a godless fool— how much worse lying lips to a ruler!
He who covers a transgression seeks love, But he who repeats a matter separates friends.Whoever would foster love covers over an offense, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends.
A friend loves at all times, And a brother is born for adversity.A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity.
A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones.A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
Even a fool is counted wise when he holds his peace; When he shuts his lips, he is considered perceptive.Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues.

The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, A refuge in times of trouble.
