“Proverbs of Solomon” cont’d, Proverbs 13:1) A wise son heareth his father’s instruction:  but a scorner heareth not rebuke.  1Samuel 2:25.  2) A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth:  but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.  3) He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life:  but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.  Psalm 30:1.  4) The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing:  but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.  5) A righteous man hateth lying:  but a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame.  6) Righteousness keepeth him that is upright in the way:  but wickedness overthroweth the sinner.  7) There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing:  there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.  8) The ransom of a man’s life are his riches:  but the poor heareth not rebuke.  9) The light of the righteous rejoiceth:  but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.  10) Only by pride cometh contention:  but with the well advised is wisdom.  11) Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished:  but he that gathereth by labour (with the hand) shall increase.  12) Hope deferred maketh the heart sick:  but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.  13) Whoso despiseth the Word shall be destroyed:  but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.  2Chronicles 36:16.  14) The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.  Psalm 116:3.  15) Good understanding giveth favour:  but the way of transgressors is hard.  16) Every prudent man dealeth with knowledge:  but a fool layeth (spreadeth) open his folly.  17) A wicked messenger falleth into mischief:  but a faithful ambassador is health.  18) Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction:  but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.  Proverbs 15:5.  19) The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul:  but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil.  20) He that walketh with wise men shall be wise:  but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.  21) Evil pusueth sinners:  but to the righteous good shall be repayed.  Psalm 32:10.  22) A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children:  and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.  23) Much food is in the tillage of the poor:  but there is that is destroyed for want of judgment.  24) He that spareth his rod hateth his son:  but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.  25) The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul:  but the belly of the wicked shall want.

Matthew Henry’s Concise Bible Commentary – v2, By our words we must be justified or condemned, Matthew 12:37.  v7, Some who are really poor trade and spend as if they were rich:  this is sin.  Some that are really rich, would be thought to be poor:  in this there is want of gratitude to God.  There are many fearing Christians, who are spiritually rich, yet think themselves poor; by their doubts and complaints.  v12, The delay of what is anxiously hoped for, is very painful to the mind.  But spiritual blessings are chiefly intended.
