Proverbs Chapter 11 (Index)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

009  An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.

010  When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.

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

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

013  A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.

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

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

016  A gracious woman retaineth honour: and strong men retain riches.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

027  He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.

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

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

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

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