Proverbs 29:14-24 (Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
14 If a king judges the poor honestly, his throne will be established forever. 15 The rod and correction lead to wisdom, but children out of control shame their mothers. 16 When the wicked become numerous, so do crimes; the righteous will see their downfall. 17 Instruct your children; they will give you peace of mind and bring delight into your life. 18 When there's no vision, the people get out of control, but whoever obeys instruction is happy. 19 Servants aren't disciplined by words; they might understand, but they don't respond. 20 Do you see people who are quick to speak? There is more hope for fools than for them. 21 Pamper servants from a young age, and later on there will be trouble. 22 Angry people stir up conflict; hotheads cause much offense. 23 Pride lays people low, but those of humble spirit gain honor. 24 Those who share plunder with thieves hate themselves; even under oath, they don't testify.
