Chapter 11

1


 

  A deceitful balance is an abomination before the Lord: and a just weight is his will.  

 

 


2


 

  Where pride is, there also shall be reproach: but where humility is, there also is wisdom.  

 

 


3


 

  The simplicity of the just shall guide them: and the deceitfulness of the wicked shall destroy them.  

 

 


4


 

  Riches shall not profit in the day of revenge: but justice shall deliver from death.  

 

 


5


 

  The justice of the upright shall make his way prosperous: and the wicked man shall fall by his own wickedness.  

 

 


6


 

  The justice of the righteous shall deliver them: and the unjust shall be caught in their own snares.  

 

 


7


 

  When the wicked man is dead, there shall be no hope any more: and the expectation of the solicitous shall perish.  

 

 


8


 

  The just is delivered out of distress: and the wicked shall be given up for him.  

 

 


9


 

  The dissembler with his mouth deceiveth his friend: but the just shall be delivered by knowledge.  

 

 


10


 

  When it goeth well with the just the city shall rejoice: and when the wicked perish there shall be praise.  

 

 


11


 

  By the blessing of the just the city shall be exalted: and by the mouth of the wicked it shall be overthrown.  

 

 


12


 

  He that despiseth his friend, is mean of heart: but the wise man will hold his peace.  

 

 


13


 

  He that walketh deceitfully, revealeth secrets: but he that is faithful, concealeth the thing committed to him by his friend.  

 

 


14


 

  Where there is no governor, the people shall fall: but there is safety where there is much counsel.  

 

 


15


 

  He shall be afflicted with evil, that is surety for a stranger: but he that is aware of the snares, shall be secure.  

 

 


16


 

  A gracious woman shall find glory: and the strong shall have riches.  

 

 


17


 

  A merciful man doth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel casteth off even his own kindred.  

 

 


18


 

  The wicked maketh an unsteady work: but to him that soweth justice, there is a faithful reward.  

 

 


19


 

  Clemency prepareth life: and the pursuing of evil things, death.  

 

 


20


 

  A perverse heart is abominable to the Lord: and his will is in them that walk sincerely.  

 

 


21


 

  Hand in hand the evil man shall not be innocent: but the seed of the just shall be saved.  

 

 


22


 

  A golden ring in a swine's snout, a woman fair and foolish.  

 

 


23


 

  The desire of the just is all good: the expectation of the wicked is indignation.  

 

 


24


 

  Some distribute their own goods, and grow richer: others take away what is not their own, and are always in want.  

 

 


25


 

  The soul which blesseth, shall be made fat: and he that inebriateth, shall be inebriated also himself.  

 

 


26


 

  He that hideth up corn, shall be cursed among the people: but a blessing upon the head of them that sell.  

 

 


27


 

  Well doth he rise early who seeketh good things; but he that seeketh after evil things shall be oppressed by them.  

 

 


28


 

  He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the just shall spring up as a green leaf.  

 

 


29


 

  He that troubleth his own house, shall inherit the winds: and the fool shall serve the wise.  

 

 


30


 

  The fruit of the just man is a tree of life: and he that gaineth souls, is wise.  

 

 


31


 

  If the just man receive in the earth, how much more the wicked and the sinner.
