Proverbs 11:1-11 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
1 A false balance is an abomination to the Lord, but an accurate weight is his delight. 2 When pride comes, then comes disgrace; but wisdom is with the humble. 3 The integrity of the upright guides them, but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them. 4 Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death. 5 The righteousness of the blameless keeps their ways straight, but the wicked fall by their own wickedness. 6 The righteousness of the upright saves them, but the treacherous are taken captive by their schemes. 7 When the wicked die, their hope perishes, and the expectation of the godless comes to nothing. 8 The righteous are delivered from trouble, and the wicked get into it instead. 9 With their mouths the godless would destroy their neighbors, but by knowledge the righteous are delivered. 10 When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices; and when the wicked perish, there is jubilation. 11 By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.
