Bible Verses in Proverbs...

Proverbs 31 (A Wife of Noble Character):

Verse 17:
She is entergetic and strong, a hard worker.

Verse 26:
When she speaks, her words are wise, and kindness is the rule when she gives instructions.

Verse 30:
Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but the woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.

Proverbs 30 (I always thought these verses were neat):

25 Ants are creatures of little strength,
yet they store up their food in the summer;

26 coneys are creatures of little power,
yet they make their home in the crags;

27 locusts have no king,
yet they advance together in ranks;

28 a lizard can be caught with the hand,
yet it is found in kings’ palaces.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight

Proverbs 10:5
He who gathers crops in summer is a wise son,
but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son

Proverbs 10:19
When words are many, sin is not absent,
but he who holds his tongue is wise.

Proverbs 11:2
When pride comes, then comes disgrace,
but with humility comes wisdom.

A fool shows his annoyance at once,
but a prudent man overlooks an insult.

Proverbs 13:12
Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

Proverbs 16:3
Commit to the LORD whatever you do,
and your plans will succeed.

It is to a man’s honor to avoid strife,
but every fool is quick to quarrel.

He who guards his mouth and his tongue
keeps himself from calamity.

Do not withhold discipline from a child;
if you punish him with the rod, he will not die.
Punish him with the rod
and save his soul from death
