Proverbs 11:19-29

19 Whoever is steadfast in righteousness 1will live, but 2he who pursues evil will die.
20 Those of 3crooked heart are 4an abomination to the LORD, but those of 5blameless ways are 6his delight.
21 7Be assured, 8an evil person will not go unpunished, but 9the offspring of the righteous will be delivered.
22 Like 10a gold ring in a pig's snout is a beautiful woman without discretion.
23 The desire of the righteous ends only in good; 11the expectation of the wicked in wrath.
24 12One gives 13freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.
25 14Whoever brings blessing 15will be enriched, and 16one who waters will himself be watered.
26 17The people curse him who holds back grain, but 18a blessing is on the head of him who 19sells it.
27 Whoever diligently seeks good seeks favor,a but evil comes to 20him who searches for it.
28 Whoever 21trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will 22flourish like a green leaf.
29 Whoever 23troubles his own household will 24inherit the wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise of heart.
