Proverbs 29:7-17 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
7 The righteous care about justice for the poor,1 but the wicked have no such concern. 8 Mockers stir up a city, but wise men turn away anger.2 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.3 11 A fool gives full vent to his anger,4 but a wise man keeps himself under control.5 12 If a ruler6 listens to lies, all his officials become wicked.7 13 The poor man and the oppressor have this in common: The LORD gives sight to the eyes of both.8 14 If a king judges the poor with fairness, his throne will always be secure.9 15 The rod of correction imparts wisdom, but a child left to himself disgraces his mother.10 16 When the wicked thrive, so does sin, but the righteous will see their downfall.11 17 Discipline your son, and he will give you peace; he will bring delight to your soul.12
