Proverbs 11 (asv)
But a just weight is his delight.
11:2When pride cometh, then cometh shame;
But with the lowly is wisdom.
11:3The integrity of the upright shall guide them;
But the perverseness of the treacherous shall destroy them.
But the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.
11:6The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them;
But the treacherous shall be taken in their own iniquity.
And the hope of iniquity perisheth.
11:8The righteous is delivered out of trouble,
And the wicked cometh in his stead.
But through knowledge shall the righteous be delivered.
And when the wicked perish, there is shouting.
But it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.
11:13He that goeth about as a tale-bearer revealeth secrets;
But in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.
11:15He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it;
But he that hateth suretyship is secure.
11:16A gracious woman obtaineth honor;
And violent men obtain riches.
But he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.
11:18The wicked earneth deceitful wages;
But he that soweth righteousness hath a sure reward.
But such as are perfect in their way are his delight.
But the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
11:22As a ring of gold in a swine's snout,
So is a fair woman that is without discretion.
11:24There is that scattereth, and increaseth yet more;
And there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth only to want.
11:25The liberal soul shall be made fat;
And he that watereth shall be watered also himself.
But he that searcheth after evil, it shall come unto him.
11:28He that trusteth in his riches shall fall;
But the righteous shall flourish as the green leaf.
And the foolish shall be servant to the wise of heart.
And he that is wise winneth souls.
11:31Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth:
How much more the wicked and the sinner!
