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.
