Chapter 29

1


 

  He who is often rebuked and stiffens his neck Will be destroyed suddenly, with no remedy.  

 

 


2


 

  When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; But when the wicked rule, the people groan.  

 

 


3


 

  Whoever loves wisdom brings joy to his father; But a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth.  

 

 


4


 

  The king by justice makes the land stable, But he who takes bribes tears it down.  

 

 


5


 

  A man who flatters his neighbor, Spreads a net for his feet.  

 

 


6


 

  An evil man is snared by his sin, But the righteous can sing and be glad.  

 

 


7


 

  The righteous care about justice for the poor. The wicked aren't concerned about knowledge.  

 

 


8


 

  Mockers stir up a city, But wise men turn away anger.  

 

 


9


 

  If a wise man goes to court with a foolish man, The fool rages or scoffs, and there is no peace.  

 

 


10


 

  The bloodthirsty hate a man of integrity; And they seek the life of the upright.  

 

 


11


 

  A fool vents all of his anger, But a wise man brings himself under control.  

 

 


12


 

  If a ruler listens to lies, All of his officials are wicked.  

 

 


13


 

  The poor man and the oppressor have this in common: Yahweh gives sight to the eyes of both.  

 

 


14


 

  The king who fairly judges the poor, His throne shall be established forever.  

 

 


15


 

  The rod of correction gives wisdom, But a child left to himself causes shame to his mother.  

 

 


16


 

  When the wicked increase, sin increases; But the righteous will see their downfall.  

 

 


17


 

  Correct your son, and he will give you peace; Yes, he will bring delight to your soul.  

 

 


18


 

  Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; But one who keeps the law is blessed.  

 

 


19


 

  A servant can't be corrected by words. Though he understands, yet he will not respond.  

 

 


20


 

  Do you see a man who is hasty in his words? There is more hope for a fool than for him.  

 

 


21


 

  He who pampers his servant from youth Will have him become a son in the end.  

 

 


22


 

  An angry man stirs up strife, And a wrathful man abounds in sin.  

 

 


23


 

  A man's pride brings him low, But one who is of a lowly spirit gains honor.  

 

 


24


 

  Whoever is an accomplice of a thief is an enemy of his own soul. He takes an oath, but dares not testify.  

 

 


25


 

  The fear of man proves to be a snare, But whoever puts his trust in Yahweh is kept safe.  

 

 


26


 

  Many seek the ruler's favor, But a man's justice comes from Yahweh.  

 

 


27


 

  A dishonest man detests the righteous, And the upright in their ways detest the wicked.
