The Ways Of Our World Noted Years Ago

If you read the words of this chapter and these verses, you will take note at how similar they are to the world in which we live. Think about it. Make the change necessary to avoid these things. Solomon the son of David was one of the wisest men to date. You 
think in wonderment, how could he have known these things? The answer is very simple, he was born of Gods hand chosen King.

Proverbs 14: 9-18

Fools mock at making amends for sin,
    but goodwill is found among the upright.
Each heart knows its own bitterness,
    and no one else can share its joy.
The house of the wicked will be destroyed,
    but the tent of the upright will flourish.
There is a way that appears to be right,
    but in the end it leads to death.
Even in laughter the heart may ache,
    and rejoicing may end in grief.
The faithless will be fully repaid for their ways,
    and the good rewarded for theirs.
The simple believe anything,
    but the prudent give thought to their steps.
The wise fear the Lord and shun evil,
    but a fool is hotheaded and yet feels secure.
A quick-tempered person does foolish things,
    and the one who devises evil schemes is hated.
The simple inherit folly,
    but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.
