Proverbs Chapter 28

- ; , . 1 The wicked flee when no man pursueth; but the righteous are secure as a young lion.
, ; , . 2 For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof; but by a man of understanding and knowledge established order shall long continue.
-, -- , . 3 A poor man that oppresseth the weak is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.
, ; , . 4 They that forsake the law praise the wicked; but such as keep the law contend with them.
-, - ; , . 5 Evil men understand not justice; but they that seek the LORD understand all things.
-, -- , . 6 Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
, ; , . 7 A wise son observeth the teaching; but he that is a companion of gluttonous men shameth his father.
, ()-- . 8 He that augmenteth his substance by interest and increase, gathereth it for him that is gracious to the poor.
, -- , . 9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination.
, -- -; , -. 10 Whoso causeth the upright to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit; but the whole-hearted shall inherit good. {P}
, ; . 11 The rich man is wise in his own eyes; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him through.
, ; , . 12 When the righteous exult, there is great glory; but when the wicked rise, men must be sought for.
, ; . 13 He that covereth his transgressions shall not prosper; but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall obtain mercy.
, ; , . 14 Happy is the man that feareth alway; but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into evil.
-, -- , -. 15 As a roaring lion, and a ravenous bear; so is a wicked ruler over a poor people.
-- , ; () , . 16 The prince that lacketh understanding is also a great oppressor; but he that hateth covetousness shall prolong his days. {P}
, --- - , --. 17 A man that is laden with the blood of any person shall hasten his steps unto the pit; none will support him.
, ; , . 18 Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved; but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.
, -; , -. 19 He that tilleth his ground shall have plenty of bread; but he that followeth after vain things shall have poverty enough.
, -; , . 20 A faithful man shall abound with blessings; but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be unpunished.
- -; --, -. 21 To have respect of persons is not good; for a man will transgress for a piece of bread.
--, ; -, - . 22 He that hath an evil eye hasteneth after riches, and knoweth not that want shall come upon him.
, -- . 23 He that rebuketh a man shall in the end find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.
, -- -: , . 24 Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith: 'It is no transgression', the same is the companion of a destroyer.
-, ; - . 25 He that is of a greedy spirit stirreth up strife; but he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be abundantly gratified.
, ; , . 26 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool; but whoso walketh wisely, he shall escape.
, ; , -. 27 He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack; but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.
, ; , . 28 When the wicked rise, men hide themselves; but when they perish, the righteous increase.
