Proverbs 19

Proverbs 19:11
19:11 A man’s wisdom [insight; comes from a consistent and careful study of God’s Word] gives him patience; it is to his [the patient and wise person] glory to overlook [this is not our natural inclination] an offense.

Proverbs 19:14
19:14 Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent [sensible, understanding, insightful, prudent] wife is from the LORD […and far greater than material inheritance].

Proverbs 19:17-18


19:17 He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD [cf. Matt. 25:31-40], and he will reward him for what he has done.

19:18 Discipline your son, for in that [while there is hope; hope has a deadline] there is hope; do not be a willing party [through the neglect of discipline] to his death.
