Proverbs 28:19-28 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
19 The one who works his land will have plenty of food, but whoever chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty.a 20 A faithful man will have many blessings, but one in a hurry to get rich will not go unpunished.b 21 It is not good to show partialityc- yet a man may sin for a piece of bread. 22 A greedy mand is in a hurry for wealth; he doesn't know that poverty will come to him.e 23 One who rebukes a person will later find more favor than one who flattersf with his tongue.g 24 The one who robs his father or mother and says, "That's no sin," is a companion to a man who destroys. 25 A greedy person provokes conflict, but whoever trusts in the Lord will prosper.h 26 The one who trusts in himselfi is a fool, but one who walks in wisdom will be safe.j 27 The one who gives to the poor will not be in need, but one who turns his eyes awayk will receive many curses.l 28 When the wicked come to power, people hide, but when they are destroyed, the righteous flourish.m
