Proverbs 29

29:1 He, that being often reproved hardeneth [his] neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy. 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. 29:3 He that loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth [his] substance. 29:4 The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it. 29:5 A man that flattereth his neighbor spreadeth a net for his feet. 29:6 In the transgression of an evil man [there is] a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice. 29:7 The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: [but] the wicked regardeth not to know [it]. 29:8 Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise [men] turn away wrath. 29:9 [If] a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rageth or laugheth, [there is] no rest. 29:10 The blood-thirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul. 29:11 A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise [man] keepeth it in till afterwards. 29:12 If a ruler hearkeneth to lies, all his servants [are] wicked. 29:13 The poor and the deceitful man meet together: the LORD enlighteneth both their eyes. 29:14 The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever. 29:15 The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left [to himself] 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 son, and he shall give thee rest; yes, he shall give delight to thy soul. 29:18 Where [there is] no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy [is] he. 29:19 A servant will not be corrected by words: for though he understandeth, he will not answer. 29:20 Seest thou a man [that is] hasty in his words? [there is] more hope of a fool than of him. 29:21 He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child shall have him at length become [his] son. 29:22 An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression. 29:23 A man's pride shall bring him low: but honor shall uphold the humble in spirit. 29:24 Whoever is partner with a thief, hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and discloseth [it] not. 29:25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but he who putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe. 29:26 Many seek the ruler's favor; but [every] man's judgment [cometh] from the LORD. 29:27 An unjust man [is] an abomination to the just: and [he that is] upright in the way [is] abomination to the wicked.
