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

 

 An hypocrite with [his] mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be 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 is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace. 

 

 


13

 

 A talebearer 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 counsellors [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 honour: 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 which 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 favour: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto 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 in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner.
