Proverbs Chapter 29 (Index)

001  He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

002  When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

003  Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance.

004  The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it.

005  A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feet.

006  In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice.

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

008  Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise men turn away wrath.

009  If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest.

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

011  A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.

012  If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked.

013  The poor and the deceitful man meet together: the LORD lighteneth both their eyes.

014  The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever.

015  The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.

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

017  Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.

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

019  A servant will not be corrected by words: for though he understand he will not answer.

020  Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? there is more hope of a fool than of him.

021  He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child shall have him become his son at the length.

022  An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.

023  A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.

024  Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth it not.

025  The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.

026  Many seek the ruler's favour; but every man's judgment cometh from the LORD.

027  An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.
