Proverbs 10:1 – 10:32

  1 The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son [is] the heaviness of his mother.
  2 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.
  3 The Lord will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked.
  4 He becometh poor that dealeth [with] a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
  5 He that gathereth in summer [is] a wise son: [but] he that sleepeth in harvest [is] a son that causeth shame.
  6 Blessings [are] upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
  7 The memory of the just [is] blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.
  8 The wise in heart will receive commandments: but a prating fool shall fall.
  9 He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.
  10 He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a prating fool shall fall.
  11 The mouth of a righteous [man is] a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
  12 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.
  13 In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod [is] for the back of him that is void of understanding.
  14 Wise [men] lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish [is] near destruction.
  15 The rich man’s wealth [is] his strong city: the destruction of the poor [is] their poverty.
  16 The labour of the righteous [tendeth] to life: the fruit of the wicked to sin.
  17 He [is in] the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth.
  18 He that hideth hatred [with] lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, [is] a fool.
  19 In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips [is] wise.
  20 The tongue of the just [is as] choice silver: the heart of the wicked [is] little worth.
  21 The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom.
  22 The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.
  23 [It is] as sport to a fool to do mischief: but a man of understanding hath wisdom.
  24 The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him: but the desire of the righteous shall be granted.
  25 As the whirlwind passeth, so [is] the wicked no [more]: but the righteous [is] an everlasting foundation.
  26 As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so [is] the sluggard to them that send him.
  27 The fear of the Lord prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened.
  28 The hope of the righteous [shall be] gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
  29 The way of the Lord [is] strength to the upright: but destruction [shall be] to the workers of iniquity.
  30 The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.
  31 The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be cut out.
  32 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked [speaketh] frowardness.

STATEMENT OF FAITH
We Believe…

In one God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;

In the absolute deity and full humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, God the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary and atoning death for all through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory to judge the living and the dead;

In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is empowered to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ;

In the divine inspiration of all 66 books of the Old and New Testaments as originally given, guaranteeing their infallibility, entire trustworthiness, and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct;

That all people are sinners and cannot save themselves. Salvation is received as a free gift of God’s grace, apart from works, through repentance and personal faith in the redemptive work of Christ and the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit;

In the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the eternal blessedness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost;

In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ who are thus members of His Body, the Church, whose work is the worship of God, perfecting the saints, and evangelization of the world.
