Proverbs 29
1He, that being often reproved hardens [his] neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
2When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked bears rule, the people mourn.
3Whoso loves wisdom rejoices his father: but he that keeps company with harlots spends [his] substance.
4The king by judgment establishes the land: but he that receives gifts overthrows it.
5A man that flatters his neighbour spreads a net for his feet.
6In the transgression of an evil man [there is] a snare: but the righteous does sing and rejoice.
7The righteous considers the cause of the poor: [but] the wicked regards not to know [it].
8Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise [men] turn away wrath.
9 [If] a wise man contends with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, [there is] no rest.
10The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul.
11A fool utters all his mind: but a wise [man] keeps it in till afterwards.
12If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants [are] wicked.
13The poor and the deceitful man meet together: the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] lightens both their eyes.
14The king that faithfully the poor, his throne shall be established forever.
15The rod and reproof (rebuke; scolding) give wisdom: but a child left [to himself] brings his mother to shame.
16When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increases: but the righteous shall see their fall.
17Correct youi son, and he shall give youi rest; yea, he shall give delight unto youi soul.
18Where [there is] no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, happy [is] he.
19A servant will not be corrected by words: for though he understand he will not answer.
20See youi a man [that is] hasty in his words? [there is] more hope of a fool than of him.
21He that delicately brings up his servant from a child shall have him become [his] son at the length.
22An angry man stirs up strife, and a furious man abounds in transgression.
23A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.
24Whoso is partner with a thief hates his own soul: he hears cursing, and betrays [it] not.
25The fear of man brings a snare: but whoso puts his trust in the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] shall be safe.
26Many seek the ruler’s favour; but [every] man’s judgment [cometh] from the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate].
27An unjust man [is] an abomination to the just: and [he that is] upright in the way [is] abomination to the wicked.
