Proverbs 29
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

The Flourishing of the Righteous

1A Man of reproofs hardening the neck, shall be suddenly broken, and no healing.

2In the increasing of the just the people will rejoice: and in the ruling of the unjust one the people will groan.

3A man loving wisdom will gladden his father: and he feeding harlots shall destroy riches.

4A king in judgment shall establish the land: and a man of presents shall overthrow it.

5A man making smooth against his neighbor spreads a net for his steps.

6In the transgression of an evil man is a snare: and the just one shall rejoice and be glad:

7The just one knew the judgment of the poor: the unjust one will not understand knowledge.

8Men of derision will kindle up a city: and the wise will turn away anger.

9A wise man contending with a foolish man and raging and laughing, and no rest.

10Men of bloods will hate the upright one: and the upright will seek his soul.

11The foolish one will bring forth all his spirit; and the wise one will restrain it back.

12A ruler listening to the word of falsehood, all serving him are unjust.

13The poor one and the man of oppressions met together: Jehovah enlightening the eyes of them both.

14The king judging the poor in truth, his throne shall be established for a testimony.

15The rod and reproofs will give wisdom: and the youth being left shames his mother.

16In increasing the unjust, transgressions will increase: and the just all look upon their fall.

17Correct thy son and he shall cause thee to rest, and he shall give delight to thy soul.

18In no vision the people shall be unruly: and he watching the law, happy is he.

19A servant will not be corrected by words: for he will understand and not answer.

20Thou sawest a man hasty in his words: hope to the foolish one more than to him.

21He bringing up his servant delicately from youth, and his latter state will be a child.

22A man of anger will excite strife, and the possessor of wrath increased transgression.

23A man's pride shall bring him low: and honor shall uphold him humble of spirit.

24He dividing with a thief, hates his soul: he shall hear cursing and shall not announce.

25The fear of man will give a snare: and he trusting in Jehovah shall be exalted.

26Many are seeking the face of the ruler, and from Jehovah a man's judgment.

27A man of iniquity is an abomination of the just; and the upright of way, an abomination of the unjust one.
