Proverbs 29:5-15 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
5 A man who 1flatters his neighbor Is spreading a net for his steps. 6 By transgression an evil man is 2ensnared, But the righteous 3sings and rejoices. 7 The 4righteous ais concerned for the rights of the poor, The wicked does not understand such bconcern. 8 Scorners 5set a city aflame, But 6wise men turn away anger. 9 When a wise man has a controversy with a foolish man, cThe foolish man either rages or laughs, and there is no rest. 10 Men of 7bloodshed hate the blameless, But the upright dare concerned for his life. 11 A 8fool ealways loses his temper, But a 9wise man holds it back. 12 If a 10ruler pays attention to falsehood, All his ministers become wicked. 13 The 11poor man and the oppressor fhave this in common: The LORD gives 12light to the eyes of both. 14 If a 13king judges the poor with truth, His 14throne will be established forever. 15 The 15rod and reproof give wisdom, But a child gwho gets his own way 16brings shame to his mother.
