Proverbs 29 (asv)
Shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
29:2When the righteous are increased, the people rejoice;
But he that keepeth company with harlots wasteth his substance.
But he that exacteth gifts overthroweth it.
Spreadeth a net for his steps.
But the righteous doth sing and rejoice.
The wicked hath not understanding to know it.
Whether he be angry or laugh, there will be no rest.
29:10The bloodthirsty hate him that is perfect;
And as for the upright, they seek his life.
29:11A fool uttereth all his anger;
But a wise man keepeth it back and stilleth it.
29:12If a ruler hearkeneth to falsehood,
All his servants are wicked.
Jehovah lighteneth the eyes of them both.
His throne shall be established for ever.
But a child left to himself causeth shame to his mother.
29:16When the wicked are increased, transgression increaseth;
But the righteous shall look upon their fall.
29:17Correct thy son, and he will give thee rest;
Yea, he will give delight unto thy soul.
But he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
29:19A servant will not be corrected by words;
For though he understand, he will not give heed.
29:20Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words?
There is more hope of a fool than of him.
29:21He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child
Shall have him become a son at the last.
29:22An angry man stirreth up strife,
29:23A man's pride shall bring him low;
But he that is of a lowly spirit shall obtain honor.
29:24Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul;
He heareth the adjuration and uttereth nothing.
But whoso putteth his trust in Jehovah shall be safe.
29:26Many seek the ruler's favor;
29:27An unjust man is an abomination to the righteous;
And he that is upright in the way is an abomination to the wicked.
