Proverbs 29

Men - Righteous men are afraid to appear publickly. Judgment - By the free and impartial exercise of justice. Gifts - Bribes. Wrath - The wrath of God or of men, who were enraged against it. Whether - Whether he, the wise man, deal sharply with him, or mildly, there is no rest, no end or fruit of the debate. Seek - To preserve it. Left - Suffered to follow his own will without restraint and chastening. No vision - No prophecy; no publick preaching of God's word. A servant - Who is so not only in condition, but also in the temper of his mind, disingenuous, and stubborn. Words - By mere words. Tho' - Though he know thy mind, and his own duty. Hasty - Who is rash and heady in the management of his affairs. Delicately - Allowing him too much freedom, and familiarity. A son - Will find him at last grow insolent, and forgetful of his servile condition. Bewrayeth it not - Which he is bound to do for the publick good. A snare - Is an occasion of many sins. Judgment - The decision of his cause, and the success of all his endeavours.
