Proverbs 28: 11-28


11 The rich is wise in self-esteem,
   but an intelligent poor person sees through the pose.
12 When the righteous triumph, there is great glory,
   but when the wicked prevail, people go into hiding.
13 No one who conceals transgressions will prosper,
   but one who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.
14 Happy is the one who is never without fear,
   but one who is hard-hearted will fall into calamity.
15 Like a roaring lion or a charging bear
   is a wicked ruler over a poor people.
16 A ruler who lacks understanding is a cruel oppressor;
   but one who hates unjust gain will enjoy a long life.
17 If someone is burdened with the blood of another,
   let that killer be a fugitive until death;
   let no one offer assistance.
18 One who walks in integrity will be safe,
   but whoever follows crooked ways will fall into the Pit.*
19 Anyone who tills the land will have plenty of bread,
   but one who follows worthless pursuits will have plenty of poverty.
20 The faithful will abound with blessings,
   but one who is in a hurry to be rich will not go unpunished.
21 To show partiality is not good—
   yet for a piece of bread a person may do wrong.
22 The miser is in a hurry to get rich
   and does not know that loss is sure to come.
23 Whoever rebukes a person will afterwards find more favour
   than one who flatters with the tongue.
24 Anyone who robs father or mother
   and says, ‘That is no crime’,
   is partner to a thug.
25 The greedy person stirs up strife,
   but whoever trusts in the Lord will be enriched.
26 Those who trust in their own wits are fools;
   but those who walk in wisdom come through safely.
27 Whoever gives to the poor will lack nothing,
   but one who turns a blind eye will get many a curse.
28 When the wicked prevail, people go into hiding;
   but when they perish, the righteous increase.
