Proverbs 29:1-8 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
1 One who is often reproved, yet remains stubborn, will suddenly be broken beyond healing. 2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked rule, the people groan. 3 A child who loves wisdom makes a parent glad, but to keep company with prostitutes is to squander one's substance. 4 By justice a king gives stability to the land, but one who makes heavy exactions ruins it. 5 Whoever flatters a neighbor is spreading a net for the neighbor's feet. 6 In the transgression of the evil there is a snare, but the righteous sing and rejoice. 7 The righteous know the rights of the poor; the wicked have no such understanding. 8 Scoffers set a city aflame, but the wise turn away wrath.
