The Proverbs

Chapter 11

1

 A false balance is an abomination to Jehovah; 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 guideth them; but the crookedness of the unfaithful destroyeth them. 

4

 Wealth profiteth not in the day of wrath; but righteousness delivereth from death. 

5

 The righteousness of the perfect maketh plain his way; but the wicked falleth by his own wickedness. 

6

 The righteousness of the upright delivereth them; but the treacherous are taken in their own craving. 

7

 When a wicked man dieth, [his] expectation shall perish; and the hope of evil [men] perisheth. 

8

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

9

 With his mouth a hypocrite destroyeth his neighbour; but through knowledge are the righteous delivered. 

10

 When it goeth well with the righteous, 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 despiseth his neighbour is void of heart; but a man of understanding holdeth his peace. 

13

 He that goeth about talebearing revealeth secrets; but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter. 

14

 Where no advice is, the people fall; but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety. 

15

 It goeth ill with him that is surety for another; but he that hateth suretyship is secure. 

16

 A gracious woman retaineth honour; and the violent retain riches. 

17

 The merciful man doeth good to his own soul; but the cruel troubleth his own flesh. 

18

 The wicked worketh a deceitful work; but he that soweth righteousness hath a sure reward. 

19

 As righteousness [tendeth] to life, so he that pursueth evil [doeth it] to his own death. 

20

 The perverse in heart are abomination to Jehovah; but they that are perfect in [their] way are his delight. 

21

 Hand for hand! an evil [man] shall not be held innocent; but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered. 

22

 A fair woman who is without discretion, is [as] a gold ring in a swine's snout. 

23

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

24

 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is right, but [it tendeth] only to want. 

25

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

26

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

27

 He that is earnest after good seeketh favour; but he that searcheth for mischief, it shall come upon him. 

28

 He that trusteth in his riches shall fall; but the righteous shall flourish as a leaf. 

29

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

30

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

31

 Behold, the righteous shall be requited on the earth: how much more the wicked and the sinner.
