Chapter 29

1

 

 He who is often rebuked and stiffens his neck Will be destroyed suddenly, with no remedy. 

 

 


2

 

 When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; But when the wicked rule, the people groan. 

 

 


3

 

 Whoever loves wisdom brings joy to his father; But a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth. 

 

 


4

 

 The king by justice makes the land stable, But he who takes bribes tears it down. 

 

 


5

 

 A man who flatters his neighbor, Spreads a net for his feet. 

 

 


6

 

 An evil man is snared by his sin, But the righteous can sing and be glad. 

 

 


7

 

 The righteous care about justice for the poor. The wicked aren't concerned about knowledge. 

 

 


8

 

 Mockers stir up a city, But wise men turn away anger. 

 

 


9

 

 If a wise man goes to court with a foolish man, The fool rages or scoffs, and there is no peace. 

 

 


10

 

 The bloodthirsty hate a man of integrity; And they seek the life of the upright. 

 

 


11

 

 A fool vents all of his anger, But a wise man brings himself under control. 

 

 


12

 

 If a ruler listens to lies, All of his officials are wicked. 

 

 


13

 

 The poor man and the oppressor have this in common: Yahweh gives sight to the eyes of both. 

 

 


14

 

 The king who fairly judges the poor, His throne shall be established forever. 

 

 


15

 

 The rod of correction gives wisdom, But a child left to himself causes shame to his mother. 

 

 


16

 

 When the wicked increase, sin increases; But the righteous will see their downfall. 

 

 


17

 

 Correct your son, and he will give you peace; Yes, he will bring delight to your soul. 

 

 


18

 

 Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; But one who keeps the law is blessed. 

 

 


19

 

 A servant can't be corrected by words. Though he understands, yet he will not respond. 

 

 


20

 

 Do you see a man who is hasty in his words? There is more hope for a fool than for him. 

 

 


21

 

 He who pampers his servant from youth Will have him become a son in the end. 

 

 


22

 

 An angry man stirs up strife, And a wrathful man abounds in sin. 

 

 


23

 

 A man's pride brings him low, But one who is of a lowly spirit gains honor. 

 

 


24

 

 Whoever is an accomplice of a thief is an enemy of his own soul. He takes an oath, but dares not testify. 

 

 


25

 

 The fear of man proves to be a snare, But whoever puts his trust in Yahweh is kept safe. 

 

 


26

 

 Many seek the ruler's favor, But a man's justice comes from Yahweh. 

 

 


27

 

 A dishonest man detests the righteous, And the upright in their ways detest the wicked.
