Proverbs 29:17-27 (Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible
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. 25 People are trapped by their fear of others; those who trust the LORD are secure. 26 Many seek access to the ruler, but justice comes from the LORD. 27 The unjust person is disgusting to the righteous; the straight path is disgusting to the wicked.
