Proverbs 29

1  He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

2  When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

3  Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance.

4  The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it.

5  A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feet.

6  In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice.

7  The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it.

8  Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise men turn away wrath.

9  If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest.

10  The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul.
