Chapter 29

1


 

  He that being often reproved hardeneth his neck Shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.  

 

 


2


 

  When the righteous are increased, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man beareth rule, the people sigh.  

 

 


3


 

  Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father; But he that keepeth company with harlots wasteth [his] substance.  

 

 


4


 

  The king by justice establisheth the land; But he that exacteth gifts overthroweth it.  

 

 


5


 

  A man that flattereth his neighbor Spreadeth a net for his steps.  

 

 


6


 

  In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare; But the righteous doth sing and rejoice.  

 

 


7


 

  The righteous taketh knowledge of the cause of the poor; The wicked hath not understanding to know [it].  

 

 


8


 

  Scoffers set a city in a flame; But wise men turn away wrath.  

 

 


9


 

  If a wise man hath a controversy with a foolish man, Whether he be angry or laugh, there will be no rest.  

 

 


10


 

  The bloodthirsty hate him that is perfect; And as for the upright, they seek his life.  

 

 


11


 

  A fool uttereth all his anger; But a wise man keepeth it back and stilleth it.  

 

 


12


 

  If a ruler hearkeneth to falsehood, All his servants are wicked.  

 

 


13


 

  The poor man and the oppressor meet together; Jehovah lighteneth the eyes of them both.  

 

 


14


 

  The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, His throne shall be established for ever.  

 

 


15


 

  The rod and reproof give wisdom; But a child left to himself causeth shame to his mother.  

 

 


16


 

  When the wicked are increased, transgression increaseth; But the righteous shall look upon their fall.  

 

 


17


 

  Correct thy son, and he will give thee rest; Yea, he will give delight unto thy soul.  

 

 


18


 

  Where there is no vision, the people cast off restraint; But he that keepeth the law, happy is he.  

 

 


19


 

  A servant will not be corrected by words; For though he understand, he will not give heed.  

 

 


20


 

  Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? There is more hope of a fool than of him.  

 

 


21


 

  He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child Shall have him become a son at the last.  

 

 


22


 

  An angry man stirreth up strife, And a wrathful man aboundeth in transgression.  

 

 


23


 

  A man's pride shall bring him low; But he that is of a lowly spirit shall obtain honor.  

 

 


24


 

  Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul; He heareth the adjuration and uttereth nothing.  

 

 


25


 

  The fear of man bringeth a snare; But whoso putteth his trust in Jehovah shall be safe.  

 

 


26


 

  Many seek the ruler's favor; But a man's judgment [cometh] from Jehovah.  

 

 


27


 

  An unjust man is an abomination to the righteous; And he that is upright in the way is an abomination to the wicked.
