The wicked flee1 when no man pursueth:6 but the righteous are bold4 as a lion.
For the transgression of a land many [are] the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding56 [and] knowledge6 the state [thereof] shall be prolonged.55
A poor6 man that oppresseth6 the poor [is like] a sweeping6 rain which leaveth no food.
They that forsake6 the law praise17 the wicked: but such as keep6 the law contend101 with them.
Evil men understand4 not judgment: but they that seek18 the LORD understand4 all [things].
Better [is] the poor6 that walketh6 in his uprightness, than [he that is] perverse [in his] ways, though he [be] rich.
Whoso keepeth6 the law [is] a wise56 son: but he that is a companion6 of riotous6 [men] shameth55 his father.
He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth56 his substance, he shall gather17 it for him that will pity6 the poor.
He that turneth away56 his ear from hearing2 the law, even his prayer [shall be] abomination.
Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray56 in an evil way, he shall fall4 himself into his own pit: but the upright shall have good [things] in possession.4
The rich man [is] wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding56 searcheth him out.4
When righteous [men] do rejoice,2 [there is] great glory: but when the wicked rise,2 a man is hidden.29
He that covereth18 his sins shall not prosper:55 but whoso confesseth56 and forsaketh6 [them] shall have mercy.29
Happy [is] the man that feareth18 alway: but he that hardeneth56 his heart shall fall4 into mischief.
[As] a roaring6 lion, and a ranging6 bear; [so is] a wicked ruler6 over the poor people.
The prince that wanteth understanding [is] also a great oppressor: [but] he that hateth6 covetousness shall prolong55 [his] days.
A man that doeth violence7 to the blood of [any] person shall flee4 to the pit; let no man stay4 him.
Whoso walketh6 uprightly shall be saved:11 but [he that is] perverse12 [in his] ways shall fall4 at once.
He that tilleth6 his land shall have plenty4 of bread: but he that followeth18 after vain [persons] shall have poverty enough.4
A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste5 to be rich53 shall not be innocent.11
To have respect53 of persons [is] not good: for for a piece of bread [that] man will transgress.4
He that hasteth12 to be rich [hath] an evil eye, and considereth4 not that poverty shall come4 upon him.
He that rebuketh56 a man afterwards shall find4 more favour than he that flattereth56 with the tongue.
Whoso robbeth6 his father or his mother, and saith,6 [It is] no transgression; the same [is] the companion of a destroyer. 7843 56
He that is of a proud heart stirreth up17 strife: but he that putteth his trust6 in the LORD shall be made fat.29
He that trusteth6 in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh6 wisely, he shall be delivered.11
He that giveth6 unto the poor6 shall not lack: but he that hideth56 his eyes shall have many a curse.
When the wicked rise,2 men hide11 themselves: but when they perish,2 the righteous increase.4
