Proverbs 28 (asv)
But the righteous are bold as a lion.
28:2For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof;
But such as keep the law contend with them.
Than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
28:7Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son;
But he that is a companion of gluttons shameth his father.
28:8He that augmenteth his substance by interest and increase,
Gathereth it for him that hath pity on the poor.
Even his prayer is an abomination.
He shall fall himself into his own pit;
But the perfect shall inherit good.
28:11The rich man is wise in his own conceit;
28:12When the righteous triumph, there is great glory;
But when the wicked rise, men hide themselves.
28:13He that covereth his transgressions shall not prosper:
But whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall obtain mercy.
28:14Happy is the man that feareth alway;
28:16The prince that lacketh understanding is also a great oppressor;
But he that hateth covetousness shall prolong his days.
Shall flee unto the pit; let no man stay him.
28:18Whoso walketh uprightly shall be delivered;
But he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.
28:19He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread;
But he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.
28:20A faithful man shall abound with blessings;
But he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be unpunished.
28:21To have respect of persons is not good;
And knoweth not that want shall come upon him.
Than he that flattereth with the tongue.
The same is the companion of a destroyer.
28:25He that is of a greedy spirit stirreth up strife;
But he that putteth his trust in Jehovah shall be made fat.
28:26He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool;
But whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.
But he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.
28:28When the wicked rise, men hide themselves;
But when they perish, the righteous increase.
