Proverbs 19:1-3 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

19 Better is a poor man who walks in his integrity than a rich man who is perverse in his speech and is a [self-confident] fool.

Desire without knowledge is not good, and to be overhasty is to sin and miss the mark.

The foolishness of man subverts his way [ruins his affairs]; then his heart is resentful and frets against the Lord.

Proverbs 19:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

19 Better the poor whose walk is blameless
    than a fool whose lips are perverse.

Desire without knowledge is not good—
    how much more will hasty feet miss the way!

A person’s own folly leads to their ruin,
    yet their heart rages against the Lord.
