[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31]

28:1 The wicked flee when no man pursueth; but the righteous are bold as a lion.

28:2 By the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof; but by a man of understanding [and] of knowledge, [its] stability is prolonged.

28:3 A poor man who oppresseth the helpless is a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.

28:4 They that forsake the law praise the wicked; but such as keep the law contend with them.

28:5 Evil men understand not judgment; but they that seek Jehovah understand everything.

28:6 Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse, double in ways, though he be rich.

28:7 Whoso observeth the law is a son that hath understanding; but he that is a companion of profligates bringeth shame to his father.

28:8 He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance gathereth it for him that is gracious to the poor.

28:9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination.

28:10 Whoso causeth the upright to go astray in an evil way, shall himself fall into his own pit; but the perfect shall inherit good.

28:11 A rich man is wise in his own eyes; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out.

28:12 When the righteous triumph, there is great glory; but when the wicked rise, men conceal themselves.

28:13 He that covereth his transgressions shall not prosper; but whoso confesseth and forsaketh [them] shall obtain mercy.

28:14 Happy is the man that feareth always; but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into evil.

28:15 A roaring lion, and a ranging bear, is a wicked ruler over a poor people.

28:16 The prince void of intelligence is also a great oppressor: he that hateth covetousness shall prolong [his] days.

28:17 A man laden with the blood of [any] person, fleeth to the pit: let no man stay him.

28:18 Whoso walketh in integrity shall be saved; but he that is perverted in [his] double ways, shall fall in one [of them].

28:19 He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread; but he that followeth the worthless shall have poverty enough.

28:20 A faithful man aboundeth with blessings; but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.

28:21 To have respect of persons is not good; but for a piece of bread will a man transgress.

28:22 He that hath an evil eye hasteth after wealth, and knoweth not that poverty shall come upon him.

28:23 He that rebuketh a man shall afterwards find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.

28:24 Whoso robbeth his father and his mother, and saith, It is no transgression, the same is the companion of a destroyer.

28:25 He that is puffed up in soul exciteth contention; but he that relieth upon Jehovah shall be made fat.

28:26 He that confideth in his own heart is a fool; but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.

28:27 He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack; but he that withdraweth his eyes shall have many a curse.

28:28 When the wicked rise, men hide themselves; but when they perish, the righteous increase.
