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.
