Proverbs 29:6-16 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
6 An evil man is snared by his own sin,1 but a righteous one can sing and be glad. 7 The righteous care about justice for the poor,2 but the wicked have no such concern. 8 Mockers stir up a city, but wise men turn away anger.3 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.4 11 A fool gives full vent to his anger,5 but a wise man keeps himself under control.6 12 If a ruler7 listens to lies, all his officials become wicked.8 13 The poor man and the oppressor have this in common: The LORD gives sight to the eyes of both.9 14 If a king judges the poor with fairness, his throne will always be secure.10 15 The rod of correction imparts wisdom, but a child left to himself disgraces his mother.11 16 When the wicked thrive, so does sin, but the righteous will see their downfall.12
