CHAPTER 29.1 He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy. ▼
▼ He…: Heb. A man of reproofs2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. ▼
▼ in…: or, increased3 Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance. 4 The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it. ▼
▼ he…: Heb. a man of oblations5 A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feet. 6 In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice. 7 The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it. 8 Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise men turn away wrath. ▼
▼ bring…: or, set a city on fire9 If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest. 10 The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul. ▼
▼ The bloodthirsty: Heb. Men of blood11 A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards. 12 If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked. 13 The poor and the deceitful man meet together: the Lord lighteneth both their eyes. ▼
▼ the deceitful…: or, the usurer14 The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever. 15 The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame. 16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall. 17 Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul. 18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. ▼
▼ perish: or, is made naked19 A servant will not be corrected by words: for though he understand he will not answer. 20 Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? there is more hope of a fool than of him. ▼
▼ words: or, matters?21 He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child shall have him become his son at the length. 22 An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression. 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 it not. 25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe. ▼
▼ safe: Heb. set on high26 Many seek the ruler's favour; but every man's judgment cometh from the Lord. ▼
▼ the ruler's…: Heb. the face of a ruler27 An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.
