Proverbs 13:3-5 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Guard your words and you’ll guard your life,
but if you don’t control your tongue,
it will ruin everything.
The slacker wants it all and ends up with nothing,
but the hard worker ends up with all that he longed for.
Lovers of God hate what is phony and false,
but the wicked are full of shame and behave shamefully.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. Proverbs 13:5 The Hebrew word used here literally means “to cause a stink” or “to emit an odor.” This is a figure of speech for what is shameful.
