Proverbs 29:12-22 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
12 If a ruler honors liars, all his advisers will be wicked. 13 The poor and the oppressor have this in common -- the LORD gives light to the eyes of both. 14 A king who is fair to the poor will have a long reign. 15 To discipline and reprimand a child produces wisdom, but a mother is disgraced by an undisciplined child. 16 When the wicked are in authority, sin increases. But the godly will live to see the tyrant's downfall. 17 Discipline your children, and they will give you happiness and peace of mind. 18 When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild. But whoever obeys the law is happy. 19 For a servant, mere words are not enough -- discipline is needed. For the words may be understood, but they are not heeded. 20 There is more hope for a fool than for someone who speaks without thinking. 21 A servant who is pampered from childhood will later become a rebel. 22 A hot-tempered person starts fights and gets into all kinds of sin.
