Proverbs 11

YLT 1 Balances of deceit [are] an abomination to Jehovah, And a perfect weight [is] His delight. NIV 1 The LORD abhors dishonest scales, but accurate weights are his delight. YLT 2 Pride hath come, and shame cometh, And with the lowly [is] wisdom. NIV 2 When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. YLT 3 The integrity of the upright leadeth them, And the perverseness of the treacherous destroyeth them. NIV 3 The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity. YLT 4 Wealth profiteth not in a day of wrath, And righteousness delivereth from death. NIV 4 Wealth is worthless in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death. YLT 5 The righteousness of the perfect maketh right his way, And by his wickedness doth the wicked fall. NIV 5 The righteousness of the blameless makes a straight way for them, but the wicked are brought down by their own wickedness. YLT 6 The righteousness of the upright delivereth them, And in mischief the treacherous are captured. NIV 6 The righteousness of the upright delivers them, but the unfaithful are trapped by evil desires. YLT 7 In the death of a wicked man, hope perisheth, And the expectation of the iniquitous hath been lost. NIV 7 When a wicked man dies, his hope perishes; all he expected from his power comes to nothing. YLT 8 The righteous from distress is drawn out, And the wicked goeth in instead of him. NIV 8 The righteous man is rescued from trouble, and it comes on the wicked instead. YLT 9 With the mouth a hypocrite corrupteth his friend, And by knowledge the righteous are drawn out. NIV 9 With his mouth the godless destroys his neighbor, but through knowledge the righteous escape. YLT 10 In the good of the righteous a city exulteth, And in the destruction of the wicked [is] singing. NIV 10 When the righteous prosper, the city rejoices; when the wicked perish, there are shouts of joy. YLT 11 By the blessing of the upright is a city exalted, And by the mouth of the wicked thrown down. NIV 11 Through the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is destroyed. YLT 12 Whoso is despising his neighbour lacketh heart, And a man of understanding keepeth silence. NIV 12 A man who lacks judgment derides his neighbor, but a man of understanding holds his tongue. YLT 13 A busybody is revealing secret counsel, And the faithful of spirit is covering the matter. NIV 13 A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret. YLT 14 Without counsels do a people fall, And deliverance [is] in a multitude of counsellors. NIV 14 For lack of guidance a nation falls, but many advisers make victory sure. YLT 15 Evil [one] suffereth when he hath been surety [for] a stranger, And whoso is hating suretyship is confident. NIV 15 He who puts up security for another will surely suffer, but whoever refuses to strike hands in pledge is safe. YLT 16 A gracious woman retaineth honour, And terrible [men] retain riches. NIV 16 A kindhearted woman gains respect, but ruthless men gain only wealth. YLT 17 A kind man is rewarding his own soul, And the fierce is troubling his own flesh. NIV 17 A kind man benefits himself, but a cruel man brings trouble on himself. YLT 18 The wicked is getting a lying wage, And whoso is sowing righteousness -- a true reward. NIV 18 The wicked man earns deceptive wages, but he who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward. YLT 19 Rightly [is] righteousness for life, And whoso is pursuing evil -- for his own death. NIV 19 The truly righteous man attains life, but he who pursues evil goes to his death. YLT 20 An abomination to Jehovah [are] the perverse of heart, And the perfect of the way [are] His delight. NIV 20 The LORD detests men of perverse heart but he delights in those whose ways are blameless. YLT 21 Hand to hand, the wicked is not acquitted, And the seed of the righteous hath escaped. NIV 21 Be sure of this: The wicked will not go unpunished, but those who are righteous will go free. YLT 22 A ring of gold in the nose of a sow -- A fair woman and stubborn of behaviour. NIV 22 Like a gold ring in a pig's snout is a beautiful woman who shows no discretion. YLT 23 The desire of the righteous [is] only good, The hope of the wicked [is] transgression. NIV 23 The desire of the righteous ends only in good, but the hope of the wicked only in wrath. YLT 24 There is who is scattering, and yet is increased, And who is keeping back from uprightness, only to want. NIV 24 One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. YLT 25 A liberal soul is made fat, And whoso is watering, he also is watered. NIV 25 A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. YLT 26 Whoso is withholding corn, the people execrate him, And a blessing [is] for the head of him who is selling. NIV 26 People curse the man who hoards grain, but blessing crowns him who is willing to sell. YLT 27 Whoso is earnestly seeking good Seeketh a pleasing thing, And whoso is seeking evil -- it meeteth him. NIV 27 He who seeks good finds goodwill, but evil comes to him who searches for it. YLT 28 Whoso is confident in his wealth he falleth, And as a leaf, the righteous flourish. NIV 28 Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf.
