Proverbs 29

29 1He that being often reproved hardeneth his neck

Shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

2When the righteous are increased, the people rejoice;

But when a wicked man beareth rule, the people sigh.

3Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father;

But he that keepeth company with harlots wasteth his substance.

4The king by justice establisheth the land;

But he that exacteth gifts overthroweth it.

5A man that flattereth his neighbor

Spreadeth a net for his steps.

6In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare;

But the righteous doth sing and rejoice.

7The righteous taketh knowledge of the cause of the poor;

The wicked hath not understanding to know it.

8Scoffers set a city in a flame;

But wise men turn away wrath.

9If a wise man hath a controversy with a foolish man,

Whether he be angry or laugh, there will be no rest.

10The bloodthirsty hate him that is perfect;

And as for the upright, they seek his life.

11A fool uttereth all his anger;

But a wise man keepeth it back and stilleth it.

12If a ruler hearkeneth to falsehood,

All his servants are wicked.

13The poor man and the oppressor meet together;

Jehovah lighteneth the eyes of them both.

14The king that faithfully judgeth the poor,

His throne shall be established for ever.

15The rod and reproof give wisdom;

But a child left to himself causeth shame to his mother.

16When the wicked are increased, transgression increaseth;

But the righteous shall look upon their fall.

17Correct thy son, and he will give thee rest;

Yea, he will give delight unto thy soul.

18Where there is no vision, the people cast off restraint;

But he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

19A servant will not be corrected by words;

For though he understand, he will not give heed.

20Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words?

There is more hope of a fool than of him.

21He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child

Shall have him become a son at the last.

22An angry man stirreth up strife,

And a wrathful man aboundeth in transgression.

23A man's pride shall bring him low;

But he that is of a lowly spirit shall obtain honor.

24Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul;

He heareth the adjuration and uttereth nothing.

25The fear of man bringeth a snare;

But whoso putteth his trust in Jehovah shall be safe.

26Many seek the ruler's favor;

But a man's judgment cometh from Jehovah.

27An unjust man is an abomination to the righteous;

And he that is upright in the way is an abomination to the wicked.
