The Proverbs - Chapter 14
The Proverbs Chapters
6 In vain the mocker looks for wisdom, knowledge comes easy to the intelligent.
7 Keep well clear of the fool, you will not find wise lips there.
8 With people of discretion, wisdom keeps a watch over their conduct, but the folly of fools leads them astray.
9 Fools mock at the sacrifice for sin, but favour resides among the honest.
15 The simpleton believes any message, a person of discretion treads a careful path.
16 The wise fears evil and avoids it, the fool is insolent and conceited.
17 A quick-tempered person commits rash acts, but a schemer is detestable.
18 Simpletons have folly for their portion, people of discretion knowledge for their crown.
19 The evil bow down before the good, the wicked, at the gates of the upright.
25 A truthful witness saves lives, whoever utters lies is a deceiver.
27 The fear of Yahweh is a life-giving spring for eluding the snares of death.
29 Mastery of temper is high proof of intelligence, a quick temper makes folly worse than ever.
34 Uprightness makes a nation great, by sin whole races are disgraced.
35 A king shows favour to a wise minister, but anger to one who shames him.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
