Proverbs 11:1-10 RSV

1 A false balance is an abomination to the LORD, but a just weight is his delight.
2 When pride comes, then comes disgrace; but with the humble is wisdom.
3 The integrity of the upright guides them, but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them.
4 Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death.
5 The righteousness of the blameless keeps his way straight, but the wicked falls by his own wickedness.
6 The righteousness of the upright delivers them, but the treacherous are taken captive by their lust.
7 When the wicked dies, his hope perishes, and the expectation of the godless comes to nought.
8 The righteous is delivered from trouble, and the wicked gets into it instead.
9 With his mouth the godless man would destroy his neighbor, but by knowledge the righteous are delivered.
10 When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices; and when the wicked perish there are shouts of gladness.
