Proverbs 28:15-25

NLT 15 A wicked ruler is as dangerous to the poor as a lion or bear attacking them. NIV 15 Like a roaring lion or a charging bear is a wicked man ruling over a helpless people. NLT 16 Only a stupid prince will oppress his people, but a king will have a long reign if he hates dishonesty and bribes. NIV 16 A tyrannical ruler lacks judgment, but he who hates ill-gotten gain will enjoy a long life. NLT 17 A murderer's tormented conscience will drive him into the grave. Don't protect him! NIV 17 A man tormented by the guilt of murder will be a fugitive till death; let no one support him. NLT 18 The honest will be rescued from harm, but those who are crooked will be destroyed. NIV 18 He whose walk is blameless is kept safe, but he whose ways are perverse will suddenly fall. NLT 19 Hard workers have plenty of food; playing around brings poverty. NIV 19 He who works his land will have abundant food, but the one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty. NLT 20 The trustworthy will get a rich reward. But the person who wants to get rich quick will only get into trouble. NIV 20 A faithful man will be richly blessed, but one eager to get rich will not go unpunished. NLT 21 Showing partiality is never good, yet some will do wrong for something as small as a piece of bread. NIV 21 To show partiality is not good-- yet a man will do wrong for a piece of bread. NLT 22 A greedy person tries to get rich quick, but it only leads to poverty. NIV 22 A stingy man is eager to get rich and is unaware that poverty awaits him. NLT 23 In the end, people appreciate frankness more than flattery. NIV 23 He who rebukes a man will in the end gain more favor than he who has a flattering tongue. NLT 24 Robbing your parents and then saying, "What's wrong with that?" is as serious as committing murder. NIV 24 He who robs his father or mother and says, "It's not wrong"-- he is partner to him who destroys. NLT 25 Greed causes fighting; trusting the LORD leads to prosperity. NIV 25 A greedy man stirs up dissension, but he who trusts in the LORD will prosper.
