Proverbs 29

29:1 A man often reproved, hardening the neck, Is suddenly broken, and there is no healing.  29:2 In the multiplying of the righteous the people rejoice, And in the ruling of the wicked the people sigh.  29:3 A man loving wisdom rejoiceth his father, And a friend of harlots destroyeth wealth.  29:4 A king by judgment establisheth a land, And one receiving gifts throweth it down.  29:5 A man taking a portion above his neighbour, Spreadeth a net for his own steps.  29:6 In the transgression of the evil [is] a snare, And the righteous doth sing and rejoice.  29:7 The righteous knoweth the plea of the poor, The wicked understandeth not knowledge.  29:8 Men of scorning ensnare a city, And the wise turn back anger.  29:9 A wise man is judged by the foolish man, And he hath been angry, And he hath laughed, and there is no rest.  29:10 Men of blood hate the perfect, And the upright seek his soul.  29:11 A fool bringeth out all his mind, And the wise till afterwards restraineth it.  29:12 A ruler who is attending to lying words, All his ministers [are] wicked.  29:13 The poor and the man of frauds have met together, Jehovah is enlightening the eyes of them both.  29:14 a king that is judging truly the poor, His throne for ever is established.  29:15 A rod and reproof give wisdom, And a youth let away is shaming his mother.  29:16 In the multiplying of the wicked transgression multiplieth, And the righteous on their fall do look.  29:17 Chastise thy son, and he giveth thee comfort, Yea, he giveth delights to thy soul.  29:18 Without a Vision is a people made naked, And whoso is keeping the law, O his happiness!  29:19 By words a servant is not instructed though he understand, And there is nothing answering.  29:20 Thou hast seen a man hasty in his words! More hope of a fool than of him.  29:21 Whoso is bringing up his servant delicately, from youth, [At] his latter end also he is continuator.  29:22 An angry man stirreth up contention, And a furious man is multiplying transgression.  29:23 The pride of man humbleth him, And humility of spirit upholdeth honour.  29:24 Whoso is sharing with a thief is hating his own soul, Execration he heareth, and telleth not.  29:25 Fear of man causeth a snare, And the confident in Jehovah is set on high.  29:26 Many are seeking the face of a ruler, And from Jehovah [is] the judgment of each.  29:27 An abomination to the righteous [is] the perverse man, And an abomination to the wicked [is] the upright in the way!
