New Living Translation
11The Lord detests the use of dishonest scales, but he delights in accurate weights.H4820H3976H8441H3068H8003H68H7522 2Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.H2087H935H935H7036H6800H2451 3Honesty guides good people; dishonesty destroys treacherous people.H8538H3477H5148H5558H898H7703H7703 4Riches won’t help on the day of judgment, but right living can save you from death.H1952H3276H3117H5678H6666H5337H4194 5The godly are directed by honesty; the wicked fall beneath their load of sin.H6666H8549H3474H1870H7563H5307H7564 6The godliness of good people rescues them; the ambition of treacherous people traps them.H6666H3477H5337H898H3920H1942 7When the wicked die, their hopes die with them, for they rely on their own feeble strength.H7563H120H4194H8615H6H8431H205H6 8The godly are rescued from trouble, and it falls on the wicked instead.H6662H2502H6869H7563H935 9With their words, the godless destroy their friends, but knowledge will rescue the righteous.H2611H6310H7843H7453H1847H6662H2502 10The whole city celebrates when the godly succeed; they shout for joy when the wicked die.H2898H6662H7151H5970H7563H6H7440 11Upright citizens are good for a city and make it prosper, but the talk of the wicked tears it apart.H1293H3477H7176H7311H2040H6310H7563 12It is foolish to belittle one’s neighbor; a sensible person keeps quiet.H2638H3820H936H7453H376H8394H2790 13A gossip goes around telling secrets, but those who are trustworthy can keep a confidence.H1980H7400H1540H5475H539H7307H3680H1697 14Without wise leadership, a nation falls; there is safety in having many advisers.H8458H5971H5307H7230H3289H8668 15There’s danger in putting up security for a stranger’s debt; it’s safer not to guarantee another person’s debt.H6148H2114H7321H7451H8130H8628H982 16A gracious woman gains respect, but ruthless men gain only wealth.H2580H802H8551H3519H6184H8551H6239 17Your kindness will reward you, but your cruelty will destroy you.H2617H376H1580H5315H394H5916H7607 18Evil people get rich for the moment, but the reward of the godly will last.H7563H6213H8267H6468H2232H6666H571H7938 19Godly people find life; evil people find death.H6666H2416H7291H7451H4194 20The Lord detests people with crooked hearts, but he delights in those with integrity.H6141H3820H8441H3068H8549H1870H7522 21Evil people will surely be punished, but the children of the godly will go free.H3027H3027H7451H5352H2233H6662H4422 22A beautiful woman who lacks discretion is like a gold ring in a pig’s snout.H5141H2091H2386H639H3303H802H5493H2940 23The godly can look forward to a reward, while the wicked can expect only judgment.H8378H6662H2896H8615H7563H5678 24Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything.H3426H6340H3254H2820H3476H4270 25The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.H1293H5315H1878H7301H3384 26People curse those who hoard their grain, but they bless the one who sells in time of need.H4513H1250H3816H5344H1293H7218H7666 27If you search for good, you will find favor; but if you search for evil, it will find you!H7836H2896H1245H7522H1875H7451H935 28Trust in your money and down you go! But the godly flourish like leaves in spring.H982H6239H5307H6662H6524H5929 29Those who bring trouble on their families inherit the wind. The fool will be a servant to the wise.H5916H1004H5157H7307H191H5650H2450H3820 30The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life; a wise person wins friends.H6529H6662H6086H2416H3947H5315H2450 31If the righteous are rewarded here on earth, what will happen to wicked sinners?H6662H7999H776H7563H2398
