Proverbs 29
New Living Translation
29Whoever stubbornly refuses to accept criticism will suddenly be destroyed beyond recovery.H376H8433H7185H6203H6621H7665H4832 2When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice. But when the wicked are in power, they groan.H6662H7235H5971H8055H7563H4910H5971H584 3The man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father, but if he hangs around with prostitutes, his wealth is wasted.H376H157H2451H8055H1H7462H2181H6H1952 4A just king gives stability to his nation, but one who demands bribes destroys it.H4428H4941H5975H776H376H8641H2040 5To flatter friends is to lay a trap for their feet.H1397H2505H7453H6566H7568H6471 6Evil people are trapped by sin, but the righteous escape, shouting for joy.H6588H7451H376H4170H6662H7442H8056 7The godly care about the rights of the poor; the wicked don’t care at all.H6662H3045H1779H1800H7563H995H1847 8Mockers can get a whole town agitated, but the wise will calm anger.H3944H582H6315H7151H6315H2450H7725H639 9If a wise person takes a fool to court, there will be ranting and ridicule but no satisfaction.H2450H376H8199H191H376H7264H7832H5183 10The bloodthirsty hate blameless people, but the upright seek to help them.H582H1818H8130H8535H3477H1245H5315 11Fools vent their anger, but the wise quietly hold it back.H3684H3318H7307H2450H7623H268 12If a ruler pays attention to liars, all his advisers will be wicked.H4910H7181H1697H8267H8334H7563 13The poor and the oppressor have this in common—the Lord gives sight to the eyes of both.H7326H8501H376H6298H3068H215H8147H5869 14If a king judges the poor fairly, his throne will last forever.H4428H571H8199H1800H3678H3559H5703 15To discipline a child produces wisdom, but a mother is disgraced by an undisciplined child.H7626H8433H5414H2451H5288H7971H517H954 16When the wicked are in authority, sin flourishes, but the godly will live to see their downfall.H7563H7235H6588H7235H6662H7200H4658 17Discipline your children, and they will give you peace of mind and will make your heart glad.H3256H1121H5117H5414H4574H5315 18When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild. But whoever obeys the law is joyful.H2377H5971H6544H8104H8451H835 19Words alone will not discipline a servant; the words may be understood, but they are not heeded.H5650H3256H1697H995H4617 20There is more hope for a fool than for someone who speaks without thinking.H2372H376H213H1697H8615H3684 21A servant pampered from childhood will become a rebel.H6445H5650H5290H4497H319 22An angry person starts fights; a hot-tempered person commits all kinds of sin.H639H376H1624H4066H2534H1167H7227H6588 23Pride ends in humiliation, while humility brings honor.H120H1346H8213H3519H8551H8217H7307 24If you assist a thief, you only hurt yourself. You are sworn to tell the truth, but you dare not testify.H2505H1590H8130H5315H8085H423H5046 25Fearing people is a dangerous trap, but trusting the Lord means safety.H2731H120H5414H4170H982H3068H7682 26Many seek the ruler’s favor, but justice comes from the Lord.H7227H1245H4910H6440H376H4941H3068 27The righteous despise the unjust; the wicked despise the godly.H5766H376H8441H6662H3477H1870H8441H7563
