Proverbs 22 AMPC
He who sows iniquity will reap calamity and futility, and the rod of his wrath with which he smites others will fail. [Pr 22:8]
Drive out the scoffer, and contention will go out; yes, strife and abuse will cease. [Pr 22:10]
[If contention, strife, and abuse still exist… then the scoffer is still there.
Ask yourself, who is the one common denominator that has always remained in this picture?]
The mouth of a loose woman is a deep pit for ensnaring wild animals; he with whom the Lord is indignant and who is abhorrent to Him will fall into it. [Pr 22:14]
Make no friendships with a man given to anger, and with a wrathful man do not associate, [Pr 22:24]
Lest you learn his ways and get yourself into a snare [Pr 22:25]
