Proverbs Scripture Reading - Proverbs 11:16-21

Proverbs 11:16-21 New King James Version (NKJV)

16 A gracious woman retains honor,
But ruthless men retain riches.
17 The merciful man does good for his own soul,
But he who is cruel troubles his own flesh.
18 The wicked man does deceptive work,
But he who sows righteousness will have a sure reward.
19 As righteousness leads to life,
So he who pursues evil pursues it to his own death.
20 Those who are of a perverse heart are an abomination to the Lord,
But the blameless in their ways are His delight.
21 Though they join [a]forces, the wicked will not go unpunished;
But the posterity of the righteous will be delivered.
