Proverbs 11:1-7 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible
1 Balances of deceit [are] an abomination of Yahweh, but {an accurate weight}a delights him. 2 Pride comes, then disgrace comes, but wisdom [is] with the humble. 3 The integrity of the upright guides them, but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them. 4 Wealth does not profit on the day of wrath, but righteousness will deliver from death. 5 The righteousness of the blameless will keep his ways straight, but the wicked will fall by his wickedness. 6 The righteousness of the upright will save them, but by a scheme the treacherous will be taken captive. 7 With the death of a wicked person, hope will die, and the expectation of the godless perishes.
