Provérbios 29

1 A man that hardeneth his necke when he is rebuked, shall suddenly be destroyed and can not be cured.

2 When the righteous are in authoritie, the people reioyce: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people sigh.

3 A man that loueth wisdome, reioyceth his father: but he that feedeth harlots, wasteth his substance.

4 A King by iudgement mainteineth ye countrey: but a man receiuing giftes, destroyeth it.

5 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 knoweth the cause of the poore: but the wicked regardeth not knowledge.

8 Scornefull men bring a citie into a snare: but wise men turne away wrath.

9 [If] a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rageth or laugheth, [there is] no rest.

10 Bloodie men hate him that is vpright: but the iust haue care of his soule.

11 A foole powreth out all his minde: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterward.

12 Of a prince that hearkeneth to lyes, all his seruants are wicked.

13 The poore and the vsurer meete together, and the Lord lighteneth both their eyes.

14 A King that iudgeth the poore in trueth, his throne shalbe established for euer.

15 The rodde and correction giue wisdome: but a childe set a libertie, maketh his mother ashamed.

16 When the wicked are increased, transgression increaseth: but ye righteous shall see their fall.

17 Correct thy sonne & he will giue thee rest, and will giue pleasures to thy soule.

18 Where [there is] no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy [is] he.

19 A servant will not be corrected by words: for though he understandeth he will not answer.

20 Seest thou a man hastie in his matters? there is more hope of a foole, then of him.

21 He that delicately bringeth vp his seruant from youth, at length he will be euen as his sone.

22 An angrie man stirreth vp strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.

23 The pride of a man shall bring him lowe: but the humble in spirit shall enioy glory.

24 He that is partner with a thiefe, hateth his owne soule: he heareth cursing, & declareth it not.

25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but he who putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.

26 Many seek the ruler's favour; but [every] man's judgment [cometh] from the LORD.

27 A wicked man is abomination to the iust, and he that is vpright in his way, is abomination to the wicked.
