    Contrast The Upright And The Wicked


    Proverbs Chapter 11 • Daily Reading by Pastor Chopper Ward


    Proverbs 11
    King James Version

    1
    A false balance is abomination to the Lord:
    but a just weight is his delight.​

    2
    When pride cometh, then cometh shame:
    but with the lowly is wisdom.​

    3
    The integrity of the upright shall guide them:
    but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.​
    4 Riches profit not in the day of wrath:
    but righteousness delivereth from death.​
    5 The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way:
    but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.​
    6 The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them:
    but transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness.​

    7
    When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish:
    and the hope of unjust men perisheth.​
    8 The righteous is delivered out of trouble,
    and the wicked cometh in his stead.​
    9 An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour:
    but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.​
    10 When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth:
    and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.​
    11 By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted:
    but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.​

    12
    He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour:
    but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.​

    13
    A talebearer revealeth secrets:
    but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.​

    14
    Where no counsel is, the people fall:
    but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.​

    15
    He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it:
    and he that hateth suretiship is sure.​

    16
    A gracious woman retaineth honour:
    and strong men retain riches.​
    17 The merciful man doeth good to his own soul:
    but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.​
    18 The wicked worketh a deceitful work:
    but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward.​
    19 As righteousness tendeth to life:
    so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death.​
    20 They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the Lord:
    but such as are upright in their way are his delight.​

    21
    Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished:
    but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.​

    22
    As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout,
    so is a fair woman which is without discretion.​

    23
    The desire of the righteous is only good:
    but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.​

    24
    There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth;
    and there is that withholdeth more than is meet,
    but it tendeth to poverty.​
    25 The liberal soul shall be made fat:
    and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.​
    26 He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him:
    but blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it.​

    27
    He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour:
    but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.​

    28
    He that trusteth in his riches shall fall;
    but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.​

    29
    He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind:
    and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart.​

    30
    The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life;
    and he that winneth souls is wise.​

    31
    Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth:
    much more the wicked and the sinner.

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
