Chapter 11

1

 

  A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight. 

 

 


2

 

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

 

 


3

 

  The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them. 

 

 


4

 

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

 

 


5

 

  The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness. 

 

 


6

 

  The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them: but transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness. 

 

 


7

 

  When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish: and the hope of unjust men perisheth. 

 

 


8

 

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

 

 


9

 

  A hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbor: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered. 

 

 


10

 

  When the righteous prosper, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting. 

 

 


11

 

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

 

 


12

 

  He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbor: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace. 

 

 


13

 

  A tale-bearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter. 

 

 


14

 

  Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety. 

 

 


15

 

  He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it: and he that hateth suretiship is sure. 

 

 


16

 

  A gracious woman retaineth honor: and strong men retain riches. 

 

 


17

 

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

 

 


18

 

  The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward. 

 

 


19

 

  As righteousness tendeth to life: so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death. 

 

 


20

 

  They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the LORD: but such as are upright in their way are his delight. 

 

 


21

 

  Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered. 

 

 


22

 

  As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman who is without discretion. 

 

 


23

 

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

 

 


24

 

  There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty. 

 

 


25

 

  The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself. 

 

 


26

 

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

 

 


27

 

  He that diligently seeketh good procureth favor: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come to him. 

 

 


28

 

  He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch. 

 

 


29

 

  He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart. 

 

 


30

 

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

 

 


31

 

  Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed upon the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner.
