Proverbs 19

21 You can make many plans,
  but the LORD's purpose will prevail.

22 Loyalty makes a person attractive.
  It is better to be poor than dishonest.

23 Fear of the LORD leads to life,
  bringing security and protection from harm.

24 Lazy people take food in their hand
  but don't even lift it to their mouth.

25 If you punish a mocker, the simpleminded will learn a lesson;
  if you correct the wise, they will be all the wiser.

26 Children who mistreat their father or chase away their mother
  are an embarrassment and a public disgrace.

27 If you stop listening to instruction, my child,
  you will turn your back on knowledge.

28 A corrupt witness makes a mockery of justice;
  the mouth of the wicked gulps down evil.

29 Punishment is made for mockers,
  and the backs of fools are made to be beaten.

I recommend the NLT second edition because it is very clear and helpful. It has been a very useful tool in communicating Scriptural truths. I love the NLT!
