Proverbs 24:23-34 (Third Millennium Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
23 These sayings also belong to the wise: It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment. 24 He that saith unto the wicked, "Thou art righteous": him shall the people curse; nations shall abhor him. 25 But to them that rebuke him shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come upon them. 26 Every man that answereth right words, giveth a kiss on the lips. 27 Prepare thy work outside, and make ready the field for thyself; and afterwards build thine house. 28 Be not a witness against thy neighbor without cause, and deceive not with thy lips. 29 Say not: "I will do so to him as he hath done to me; I will render to the man according to his work." 30 I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding; 31 and lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down. 32 Then I saw and considered it well; I looked upon it, and received instruction: 33 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep-- 34 so shall thy poverty come as one that wandereth, and thy want as an armed man.
