Book 20 : PROVERBS - Chapter 028


For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged


A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food


They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them


Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things


Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich


Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father


He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor


He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination


Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: but the upright shall have good things in possession


The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out


When righteous men do rejoice, there is great glory: but when the wicked rise, a man is hidden


He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy


Happy is the man that feareth alway: but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief


As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people


The prince that wanteth understanding is also a great oppressor: but he that hateth covetousness shall prolong his days


A man that doeth violence to the blood of any person shall flee to the pit; let no man stay him


Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved: but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once


He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough


A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent


To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress


He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him


He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue


Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer


He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made fat


He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered


He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse


When the wicked rise, men hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase
