Proverbs 29:1-27 KJV
He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

[2] When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

[3] Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance.

[4] The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it. [

5] A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feet. [

6] In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice.

[7] The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it .

[8] Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise men turn away wrath.

[9] If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest.

[10] The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul.

[11] A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.

[12] If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked.

[13] The poor and the deceitful man meet together: the Lord lighteneth both their eyes. [

14] The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever. [

15] The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.

[16] When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall. [

17] Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.

[18] Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. [

19] A servant will not be corrected by words: for though he understand he will not answer.

[20] Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? there is more hope of a fool than of him.

[21] He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child shall have him become his son at the length.

[22] An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression. [

23] A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.

[24] Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth it not.

[25] The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe. [

26] Many seek the ruler's favour; but every man's judgment cometh from the Lord .

[27] An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.
