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.
