Be disciplined and take root – Proverbs 12:1-7, Proverbs 12:11, Proverbs 12:14

Proverbs 12:1-7

12 Whoso loveth instruction (discipline, correction) loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish (concretely stupid).

A good man (ish: a great man, a Godly man) of the Lord: but a man of wicked (lawless) devices will he condemn.

A man (adam) shall not be established (to be erect, stand perpendicular) by wickedness (lawlessness): but the root of the righteous (one’s) shall not be moved.

A virtuous (worthy) woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed (to pale in color; become dry, to be ashamed) is as rottenness in his bones.

The thoughts (plans) of the righteous are right (just): but the counsels (steering or direction) of the wicked (lawless) are deceit (deception).

The words (a spoken thing) of the wicked (lawless) are to lie in wait (lurk, ambush) for blood (that which causeth death, bloodshed) : but the mouth (the mouth (as a means of blowing)) of the upright (one’s) shall deliver (defend, escape) them.

The wicked are overthrown (to turn about or over, perverted), and are not (there is nothing left): but the house of the righteous shall stand (arise, continue, endure, establish).

Proverbs 12:11, Proverbs 12:14

11 He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding.

14 A man (ish: a great man, a Godly man) shall be satisfied (fill to satisfaction, have plenty) with good by the fruit (produce) of his mouth: and the recompence (reward) of a man’s hands shall be rendered unto him.
