Proverbs 28
New Living Translation
28The wicked run away when no one is chasing them, but the godly are as bold as lions.H7563H5127H7291H6662H982H3715 2When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability.H6588H776H7227H8269H120H995H3045H3651H748 3A poor person who oppresses the poor is like a pounding rain that destroys the crops.H7326H1397H6231H1800H5502H4306H3899 4To reject the law is to praise the wicked; to obey the law is to fight them.H5800H8451H1984H7563H8104H8451H1624 5Evil people don’t understand justice, but those who follow the Lord understand completely.H7451H582H995H4941H1245H3068H995 6Better to be poor and honest than to be dishonest and rich.H2896H7326H1980H8537H6141H1870H6223 7Young people who obey the law are wise; those with wild friends bring shame to their parents.H5341H8451H995H1121H7462H2151H3637H1 8Income from charging high interest rates will end up in the pocket of someone who is kind to the poor.H5392H8636H7235H1952H6908H2603H1800 9God detests the prayers of a person who ignores the law.H5493H241H8085H8451H8605H8441 10Those who lead good people along an evil path will fall into their own trap, but the honest will inherit good things.H3477H7686H7451H1870H5307H7816H8549H2896H5157 11Rich people may think they are wise, but a poor person with discernment can see right through them.H6223H376H2450H5869H1800H995H2713 12When the godly succeed, everyone is glad. When the wicked take charge, people go into hiding.H6662H5970H7227H8597H7563H6965H120H2664 13People who conceal their sins will not prosper, but if they confess and turn from them, they will receive mercy.H3680H6588H6743H3034H5800H7355 14Blessed are those who fear to do wrong, but the stubborn are headed for serious trouble.H835H120H6342H8548H7185H3820H5307H7451 15A wicked ruler is as dangerous to the poor as a roaring lion or an attacking bear.H5098H738H8264H1677H7563H4910H1800H5971 16A ruler with no understanding will oppress his people, but one who hates corruption will have a long life.H5057H2638H8394H7227H4642H8130H1215H748H3117 17A murderer’s tormented conscience will drive him into the grave. Don’t protect him!H120H6231H1818H5315H5127H953H8551 18The blameless will be rescued from harm, but the crooked will be suddenly destroyed.H1980H8549H3467H6140H1870H5307H259 19A hard worker has plenty of food, but a person who chases fantasies ends up in poverty.H5647H127H7646H3899H7291H7386H7389 20The trustworthy person will get a rich reward, but a person who wants quick riches will get into trouble.H530H376H7227H1293H213H6238H5352 21Showing partiality is never good, yet some will do wrong for a mere piece of bread.H5234H6440H2896H6595H3899H1397H6586 22Greedy people try to get rich quick but don’t realize they’re headed for poverty.H376H926H1952H7451H5869H3045H2639H935 23In the end, people appreciate honest criticism far more than flattery.H3198H120H310H4672H2580H2505H3956 24Anyone who steals from his father and mother and says, “What’s wrong with that?” is no better than a murderer.H1497H1H517H559H6588H2270H376H7843 25Greed causes fighting; trusting the Lord leads to prosperity.H7342H5315H1624H4066H982H3068H1878 26Those who trust their own insight are foolish, but anyone who walks in wisdom is safe.H982H3820H3684H1980H2451H4422 27Whoever gives to the poor will lack nothing, but those who close their eyes to poverty will be cursed.H5414H7326H4270H5956H5869H7227H3994 28When the wicked take charge, people go into hiding. When the wicked meet disaster, the godly flourish.H7563H6965H120H5641H6H6662H7235
