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

 Whoso 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 neighbour 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 rage or laugh, [there is] no rest. 

10

 The bloodthirsty 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 hearken to lies, all his servants [are] wicked. 

13

 The poor and the deceitful man meet together: the LORD lighteneth 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; yea, he shall give delight unto 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 understand 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 become [his] son at the length. 

22

 An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression. 

23

 A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit. 

24

 Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth [it] not. 

25

 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe. 

26

 Many seek the ruler's favour; 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.
