Chapter 29

1


 

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

 

 


2


 

  When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.  

 

 


3


 

  He that loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance.  

 

 


4


 

  The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it.  

 

 


5


 

  A man that flattereth his neighbor spreadeth a net for his feet.  

 

 


6


 

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

 

 


7


 

  The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it.  

 

 


8


 

  Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise men turn away wrath.  

 

 


9


 

  If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rageth or laugheth, there is no rest.  

 

 


10


 

  The blood-thirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul.  

 

 


11


 

  A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.  

 

 


12


 

  If a ruler hearkeneth to lies, all his servants are wicked.  

 

 


13


 

  The poor and the deceitful man meet together: the LORD enlighteneth both their eyes.  

 

 


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 bringeth his mother to shame.  

 

 


16


 

  When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall.  

 

 


17


 

  Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yes, he shall give delight to thy soul.  

 

 


18


 

  Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.  

 

 


19


 

  A servant will not be corrected by words: for though he understandeth, he will not answer.  

 

 


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 at length become his son.  

 

 


22


 

  An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.  

 

 


23


 

  A man's pride shall bring him low: but honor shall uphold the humble in spirit.  

 

 


24


 

  Whoever is partner with a thief, hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and discloseth it not.  

 

 


25


 

  The fear of man bringeth a snare: but he who putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.  

 

 


26


 

  Many seek the ruler's favor; but every man's judgment cometh from the LORD.  

 

 


27


 

  An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.
