Proverbs 28:4-14 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
4 Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, but those who keep the law resist them. 5 Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the LORD understand it fully. 6 Better a poor man whose walk is blameless than a rich man whose ways are perverse.1 7 He who keeps the law is a discerning son, but a companion of gluttons disgraces his father.2 8 He who increases his wealth by exorbitant interest3 amasses it for another,4 who will be kind to the poor.5 9 If anyone turns a deaf ear to the law, even his prayers are detestable.6 10 He who leads the upright along an evil path will fall into his own trap,7 but the blameless will receive a good inheritance. 11 A rich man may be wise in his own eyes, but a poor man who has discernment sees through him. 12 When the righteous triumph, there is great elation;8 but when the wicked rise to power, men go into hiding.9 13 He who conceals his sins10 does not prosper, but whoever confesses11 and renounces them finds mercy.12 14 Blessed is the man who always fears the LORD, but he who hardens his heart falls into trouble.
