Proverbs 29

29:1 He that being often reproued, hardeneth his necke, shal suddenly be destroied, and that without remedy. 29:2 When the righteous are in authoritie, the people reioyce: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourne. 29:3 Whoso loueth wisedome, reioyceth his father: but hee that keepeth company with harlots, spendeth his substance. 29:4 The king by iudgement stablisheth the land: but he that receiueth gifts, ouerthroweth it. 29:5 A man that flattereth his neighbour, spreadeth a net for his feet. 29:6 In the transgression of an euill man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and reioyce. 29:7 The righteous considereth the cause of the poore: but the wicked regardeth not to know it. 29:8 Scornefull men bring a citie into a snare: but wise men turne away wrath. 29:9 If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether hee rage or laugh, there is no rest. 29:10 The bloodthirstie hate the vpright: but the iust seeke his soule. 29:11 A foole vttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards. 29:12 If a ruler hearken to lies, all his seruants are wicked. 29:13 The poore and the deceitful man meet together: the Lord lightneth both their eyes. 29:14 The King that faithfully iudgeth the poore, his throne shall be established for euer. 29:15 The rod and reproofe giue wisedome: but a child left to himselfe bringeth his mother to shame. 29:16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall. 29:17 Correct thy sonne, and hee shall giue thee rest: yea he shall giue delight vnto thy soule. 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the Law, happy is he. 29:19 A seruant will not be corrected by words: for though hee vnderstand, hee will not answere. 29:20 Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words there is more hope of a foole then of him. 29:21 He that delicately bringeth vp his seruant from a child, shall haue him become his sonne at the length. 29:22 An angry man stirreth vp strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression. 29:23 A mans pride shall bring him lowe: but honour shall vpholde the humble in spirit. 29:24 Who so is partner with a thiefe, hateth his owne soule: hee heareth cursing, and bewrayeth it not. 29:25 The feare of man bringeth a snare: but who so putteth his trust in the Lord, shall be safe. 29:26 Many seeke the rulers fauour, but euery mans iudgement commeth from the Lord. 29:27 An vniust man is an abomination to the iust: and he that is vpright in the way, is abomination to the wicked.
