Proverbs 29:4-14 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
4 By justice a king gives a country stability,1 but one who is greedy for bribes tears it down. 5 Whoever flatters his neighbor is spreading a net for his feet.2 6 An evil man is snared by his own sin,3 but a righteous one can sing and be glad. 7 The righteous care about justice for the poor,4 but the wicked have no such concern. 8 Mockers stir up a city, but wise men turn away anger.5 9 If a wise man goes to court with a fool, the fool rages and scoffs, and there is no peace. 10 Bloodthirsty men hate a man of integrity and seek to kill the upright.6 11 A fool gives full vent to his anger,7 but a wise man keeps himself under control.8 12 If a ruler9 listens to lies, all his officials become wicked.10 13 The poor man and the oppressor have this in common: The LORD gives sight to the eyes of both.11 14 If a king judges the poor with fairness, his throne will always be secure.12
