Proverbs chapter 28

1
The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion.
2
Because of the transgression of a land, many [are] its princes; But by a man of understanding [and] knowledge Right will be prolonged.
3
A poor man who oppresses the poor [Is like] a driving rain which leaves no food.
4
Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, But such as keep the law contend with them.
5
Evil men do not understand justice, But those who seek the LORD understand all.
6
Better [is] the poor who walks in his integrity Than one perverse [in his] ways, though he [be] rich.
7
Whoever keeps the law [is] a discerning son, But a companion of gluttons shames his father.
8
One who increases his possessions by usury and extortion Gathers it for him who will pity the poor.
9
One who turns away his ear from hearing the law, Even his prayer [is] an abomination.
10
Whoever causes the upright to go astray in an evil way, He himself will fall into his own pit; But the blameless will inherit good.
11
The rich man [is] wise in his own eyes, But the poor who has understanding searches him out.
12
When the righteous rejoice, [there is] great glory; But when the wicked arise, men hide themselves.
13
He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes [them] will have mercy.
14
Happy [is] the man who is always reverent, But he who hardens his heart will fall into calamity.
15
[Like] a roaring lion and a charging bear [Is] a wicked ruler over poor people.
16
A ruler who lacks understanding [is] a great oppressor, [But] he who hates covetousness will prolong [his] days.
17
A man burdened with bloodshed will flee into a pit; Let no one help him.
18
Whoever walks blamelessly will be saved, But [he who is] perverse [in his] ways will suddenly fall.
19
He who tills his land will have plenty of bread, But he who follows frivolity will have poverty enough!
20
A faithful man will abound with blessings, But he who hastens to be rich will not go unpunished.
21
To show partiality [is] not good, Because for a piece of bread a man will transgress.
22
A man with an evil eye hastens after riches, And does not consider that poverty will come upon him.
23
He who rebukes a man will find more favor afterward Than he who flatters with the tongue.
24
Whoever robs his father or his mother, And says, "[It is] no transgression," The same [is] companion to a destroyer.
25
He who is of a proud heart stirs up strife, But he who trusts in the LORD will be prospered.
26
He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But whoever walks wisely will be delivered.
27
He who gives to the poor will not lack, But he who hides his eyes will have many curses.
28
When the wicked arise, men hide themselves; But when they perish, the righteous increase.

Proverbs chapter 29

1
He who is often rebuked, [and] hardens [his] neck, Will suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
2
When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked [man] rules, the people groan.
3
Whoever loves wisdom makes his father rejoice, But a companion of harlots wastes [his] wealth.
4
The king establishes the land by justice, But he who receives bribes overthrows it.
5
A man who flatters his neighbor Spreads a net for his feet.
6
By transgression an evil man is snared, But the righteous sings and rejoices.
7
The righteous considers the cause of the poor, [But] the wicked does not understand [such] knowledge.
8
Scoffers set a city aflame, But wise [men] turn away wrath.
9
[If] a wise man contends with a foolish man, Whether [the fool] rages or laughs, [there is] no peace.
10
The bloodthirsty hate the blameless, But the upright seek his well-being.
11
A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise [man] holds them back.
12
If a ruler pays attention to lies, All his servants [become] wicked.
13
The poor [man] and the oppressor have this in common: The LORD gives light to the eyes of both.
14
The king who judges the poor with truth, His throne will be established forever.
15
The rod and rebuke give wisdom, But a child left [to himself] brings shame to his mother.
16
When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increases; But the righteous will see their fall.
17
Correct your son, and he will give you rest; Yes, he will give delight to your soul.
18
Where [there is] no revelation, the people cast off restraint; But happy [is] he who keeps the law.
19
A servant will not be corrected by mere words; For though he understands, he will not respond.
20
Do you see a man hasty in his words? [There is] more hope for a fool than for him.
21
He who pampers his servant from childhood Will have him as a son in the end.
22
An angry man stirs up strife, And a furious man abounds in transgression.
23
A man's pride will bring him low, But the humble in spirit will retain honor.
24
Whoever is a partner with a thief hates his own life; He swears to tell the truth, but reveals nothing.
25
The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in the LORD shall be safe.
26
Many seek the ruler's favor, But justice for man [comes] from the LORD.
27
An unjust man [is] an abomination to the righteous, And [he who is] upright in the way [is] an abomination to the wicked.

Proverbs chapter 30

1
The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, [his] utterance. This man declared to Ithiel -- to Ithiel and Ucal:
2
Surely I [am] more stupid than [any] man, And do not have the understanding of a man.
3
I neither learned wisdom Nor have knowledge of the Holy One.
4
Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What [is] His name, and what [is] His Son's name, If you know?
5
Every word of God [is] pure; He [is] a shield to those who put their trust in Him.
6
Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.
7
Two [things] I request of You (Deprive me not before I die):
8
Remove falsehood and lies far from me; Give me neither poverty nor riches -- Feed me with the food allotted to me;
9
Lest I be full and deny [You,] And say, "Who [is] the LORD?" Or lest I be poor and steal, And profane the name of my God.
10
Do not malign a servant to his master, Lest he curse you, and you be found guilty.
11
[There is] a generation [that] curses its father, And does not bless its mother.
12
[There is] a generation [that is] pure in its own eyes, [Yet] is not washed from its filthiness.
13
[There is] a generation -- oh, how lofty are their eyes! And their eyelids are lifted up.
14
[There is] a generation whose teeth [are like] swords, And whose fangs [are like] knives, To devour the poor from off the earth, And the needy from [among] men.
15
The leech has two daughters -- Give [and] Give! There are three [things that] are never satisfied, Four never say, "Enough!":
16
The grave, The barren womb, The earth [that] is not satisfied with water -- And the fire never says, "Enough!"
17
The eye [that] mocks [his] father, And scorns obedience to [his] mother, The ravens of the valley will pick it out, And the young eagles will eat it.
18
There are three [things which] are too wonderful for me, Yes, four [which] I do not understand:
19
The way of an eagle in the air, The way of a serpent on a rock, The way of a ship in the midst of the sea, And the way of a man with a virgin.
20
This [is] the way of an adulterous woman: She eats and wipes her mouth, And says, "I have done no wickedness."
21
For three [things] the earth is perturbed, Yes, for four it cannot bear up:
22
For a servant when he reigns, A fool when he is filled with food,
23
A hateful [woman] when she is married, And a maidservant who succeeds her mistress.
24
There are four [things which] are little on the earth, But they [are] exceedingly wise:
25
The ants [are] a people not strong, Yet they prepare their food in the summer;
26
The rock badgers are a feeble folk, Yet they make their homes in the crags;
27
The locusts have no king, Yet they all advance in ranks;
28
The spider skillfully grasps with its hands, And it is in kings' palaces.
29
There are three [things which] are majestic in pace, Yes, four [which] are stately in walk:
30
A lion, [which is] mighty among beasts And does not turn away from any;
31
A greyhound, A male goat also, And a king [whose] troops [are] with him.
32
If you have been foolish in exalting yourself, Or if you have devised evil, [put your] hand on [your] mouth.
33
For [as] the churning of milk produces butter, And wringing the nose produces blood, So the forcing of wrath produces strife.

Proverbs chapter 31

1
The words of King Lemuel, the utterance which his mother taught him:
2
What, my son? And what, son of my womb? And what, son of my vows?
3
Do not give your strength to women, Nor your ways to that which destroys kings.
4
[It is] not for kings, O Lemuel, [It is] not for kings to drink wine, Nor for princes intoxicating drink;
5
Lest they drink and forget the law, And pervert the justice of all the afflicted.
6
Give strong drink to him who is perishing, And wine to those who are bitter of heart.
7
Let him drink and forget his poverty, And remember his misery no more.
8
Open your mouth for the speechless, In the cause of all [who are] appointed to die.
9
Open your mouth, judge righteously, And plead the cause of the poor and needy.
10
Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth [is] far above rubies.
11
The heart of her husband safely trusts her; So he will have no lack of gain.
12
She does him good and not evil All the days of her life.
13
She seeks wool and flax, And willingly works with her hands.
14
She is like the merchant ships, She brings her food from afar.
15
She also rises while it is yet night, And provides food for her household, And a portion for her maidservants.
16
She considers a field and buys it; From her profits she plants a vineyard.
17
She girds herself with strength, And strengthens her arms.
18
She perceives that her merchandise [is] good, And her lamp does not go out by night.
19
She stretches out her hands to the distaff, And her hand holds the spindle.
20
She extends her hand to the poor, Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.
21
She is not afraid of snow for her household, For all her household [is] clothed with scarlet.
22
She makes tapestry for herself; Her clothing [is] fine linen and purple.
23
Her husband is known in the gates, When he sits among the elders of the land.
24
She makes linen garments and sells [them,] And supplies sashes for the merchants.
25
Strength and honor [are] her clothing; She shall rejoice in time to come.
26
She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue [is] the law of kindness.
27
She watches over the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness.
28
Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband [also,] and he praises her:
29
"Many daughters have done well, But you excel them all."
30
Charm [is] deceitful and beauty [is] passing, But a woman [who] fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
31
Give her of the fruit of her hands, And let her own works praise her in the gates.
