Chapter 11

1


 

  A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight.  

 

 


2


 

  When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.  

 

 


3


 

  The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.  

 

 


4


 

  Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.  

 

 


5


 

  The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.  

 

 


6


 

  The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them: but transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness.  

 

 


7


 

  When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish: and the hope of unjust men perisheth.  

 

 


8


 

  The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead.  

 

 


9


 

  A hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbor: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.  

 

 


10


 

  When the righteous prosper, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.  

 

 


11


 

  By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.  

 

 


12


 

  He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbor: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.  

 

 


13


 

  A tale-bearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.  

 

 


14


 

  Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.  

 

 


15


 

  He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it: and he that hateth suretiship is sure.  

 

 


16


 

  A gracious woman retaineth honor: and strong men retain riches.  

 

 


17


 

  The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.  

 

 


18


 

  The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward.  

 

 


19


 

  As righteousness tendeth to life: so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death.  

 

 


20


 

  They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the LORD: but such as are upright in their way are his delight.  

 

 


21


 

  Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.  

 

 


22


 

  As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman who is without discretion.  

 

 


23


 

  The desire of the righteous is only good: but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.  

 

 


24


 

  There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.  

 

 


25


 

  The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.  

 

 


26


 

  He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: but blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it.  

 

 


27


 

  He that diligently seeketh good procureth favor: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come to him.  

 

 


28


 

  He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.  

 

 


29


 

  He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart.  

 

 


30


 

  The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.  

 

 


31


 

  Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed upon the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner.
