Proverbs 29
1

He who is often rebuked and stiffens his neck
will be destroyed suddenly, with no remedy.

2
When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice;
but when the wicked rule, the people groan.

3
Whoever loves wisdom brings joy to his father;
but a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth.

4
The king by justice makes the land stable,
but he who takes bribes tears it down.

5
A man who flatters his neighbor
spreads a net for his feet.

6
An evil man is snared by his sin,
but the righteous can sing and be glad.

7
The righteous care about justice for the poor.
The wicked aren't concerned about knowledge.

8
Mockers stir up a city,
but wise men turn away anger.

9
If a wise man goes to court with a foolish man,
the fool rages or scoffs, and there is no peace.

10
The bloodthirsty hate a man of integrity;
and they seek the life of the upright.

11
A fool vents all of his anger,
but a wise man brings himself under control.

12
If a ruler listens to lies,
all of his officials are wicked.

13
The poor man and the oppressor have this in common:
Yahweh gives sight to the eyes of both.

14
The king who fairly judges the poor,
his throne shall be established forever.

15
The rod of correction gives wisdom,
but a child left to himself causes shame to his mother.

16
When the wicked increase, sin increases;
but the righteous will see their downfall.

17
Correct your son, and he will give you peace;
yes, he will bring delight to your soul.

18
Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint;
but one who keeps the law is blessed.

19
A servant can't be corrected by words.
Though he understands, yet he will not respond.

20
Do you see a man who is hasty in his words?
There is more hope for a fool than for him.

21
He who pampers his servant from youth
will have him become a son in the end.

22
An angry man stirs up strife,
and a wrathful man abounds in sin.

23
A man's pride brings him low,
but one of lowly spirit gains honor.

24
Whoever is an accomplice of a thief is an enemy of his own soul.
He takes an oath, but dares not testify.

25
The fear of man proves to be a snare,
but whoever puts his trust in Yahweh is kept safe.

26
Many seek the ruler's favor,
but a man's justice comes from Yahweh.

27
A dishonest man detests the righteous,
and the upright in their ways detest the wicked.
