Proverbs 29

CHAPTER 29

Yielding upon The LORD

1Better a man of reproofs, than a man hard-necked; for suddenly [3blazing up 4for him 1there is no 2healing]. 2In the lauding of the just [2will be glad 1peoples]; [4the rule 1but 5of the impious 3moan over 2men]. 3A man fond of wisdom gladdens his father; but the one tending harlots destroys wealth. 4[2king 1A just] establishes regions; [3man 1but 2a lawbreaking] razes them. 5The one who makes preparations [2against 3the person 4of his own 5friend 1with a net] puts it around his own feet. 6[4sinning 3against a man 1A great 2snare is set]; but the just [2in 3joy 4and 5in 6gladness 1will be]. 7[2has knowledge 1A just man] to judge for the destitute; but the impious do not comprehend knowledge; and to the poor there does not exist the mind of an arbitrator. 8[2men 1Mischievous] burn away a city; but wise men turn away anger. 9[2man 1A wise] judges nations; [3man 1but 2a heedless], in provoking to anger, ridicules and is not struck with awe. 10Men [2in blood 1being partners] shall detest the sacred; but the upright will seek after his soul. 11[5entire 6rage 4his 3brings forth 1The 2fool]; but the wise stores his up in part. 12A king hearkening [2matter 1in an unjust] makes all the ones under him lawbreakers. 13A money-lender and debtor, when one another come together [4to oversee 3commits 5both 1the 2  lord]. 14A king [3in 4truth 1judging 2the poor], his throne [2for 3a good testimony 1shall be established]. 15Strokes and reproofs give wisdom; but a child wandering shames his parents. 16[2of many 1With the being] impious, many [2take place 1sins]; but with the just, at the falling of those, fear takes place. 17Correct your son, and he will cause you rest, and he will give a decoration to your soul. 18In no way should there exist an expositor [2nation 1to a lawbreaking]; but the one keeping the law is most blessed. 19[5by words 3will not be 4corrected 2domestic servant 1A recalcitrant]; for even if he comprehends he will not obey. 20If you should behold a man hasty in words, know that [4hope 3has 5rather than 1the 2fool] he! 21The one who lives wastefully from child hood will be a domestic servant; and at the end will grieve over himself. 22A man inclined to rage digs up altercation; and a man prone to anger gouges up sin. 23Insolence [2a man 1abases]; but the [3the humble-minded 2establishes 4in glory 1  lord]. 24The one who shares with a thief detests his own soul. And if an oath having been set before ones hearing, but they should not announce it, 25they, fearing and shaming men, shall be tripped up; but the one yielding upon the  lord shall be glad. Impiety in man makes a man trip; but the one yielding unto the master shall be preserved. 26Many attend to the persons of leaders; but by the  lord [2happens 1justice] to a man. 27[3is an abomination 1A just 2man 5man 4to an unjust]; and an abomination to the lawless one is a straight way.
