Proverbs 29 (KJV)

1 He, that being often reproved (rebuked, corrected) 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.





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.





7 The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it.




10 The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul.





11 A fool uttereth (broadcasts) all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.






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.





16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall.




18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.




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 (abandons) 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 (curse) to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination (torture) to the wicked.
