[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]

11:1 A false balance is an abomination to the LORD; but a perfect weight is His delight.

11:2 When pride cometh, then cometh shame; but with the lowly is wisdom.

11:3 The integrity of the upright shall guide them; but the perverseness of the faithless shall destroy them.

11:4 Riches profit not in the day of wrath; but righteousness delivereth from death.

11:5 The righteousness of the sincere shall make straight his way; but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.

11:6 The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them; but the faithless shall be trapped in their own crafty device.

11:7 When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish, and the hope of strength perisheth.

11:8 The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead.

11:9 With his mouth the impious man destroyeth his neighbour; but through knowledge shall the righteous be delivered.

11:10 When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth; and when the wicked perish, there is joy.

11:11 By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted; but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

11:12 He that despiseth his neighbour lacketh understanding; but a man of discernment holdeth his peace.

11:13 He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets; but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth a matter.

11:14 Where no wise direction is, a people falleth; but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.

11:15 He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it; but he that hateth them that strike hands is secure.

11:16 A gracious woman obtaineth honour; and strong men obtain riches.

11:17 The merciful man doeth good to his own soul; but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.

11:18 The wicked earneth deceitful wages; but he that soweth righteousness hath a sure reward.

11:19 Stedfast righteousness tendeth to life; but he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death.

11:20 They that are perverse in heart are an abomination to the LORD; but such as are upright in their way are His delight.

11:21 My hand upon it! the evil man shall not be unpunished; but the seed of the righteous shall escape.

11:22 As a ring of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman that turneth aside from discretion.

11:23 The desire of the righteous is only good; but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.

11:24 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth only to want.

11:25 The beneficent soul shall be made rich, and he that satisfieth abundantly shall be satisfied also himself.

11:26 He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him; but blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it.

11:27 He that diligently seeketh good seeketh favour; but he that searcheth for evil, it shall come unto him.

11:28 He that trusteth in his riches shall fall; but the righteous shall flourish as foliage.

11:29 He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind; and the foolish shall be servant to the wise of heart.

11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that is wise winneth souls.

11:31 Behold, the righteous shall be requited in the earth; how much more the wicked and the sinner!
