    Warnings And Instructions


    Proverbs Chapter 29 • Daily Reading by Pastor Chopper Ward


    Proverbs 29
    King James Version

    1
    He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck,
    shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.​

    2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice:
    but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.​

    3 Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father:
    but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance.​

    4 The king by judgment establisheth the land:
    but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it.​

    5 A man that flattereth his neighbour
    spreadeth a net for his feet.​

    6 In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare:
    but the righteous doth sing and rejoice.​

    7 The righteous considereth the cause of the poor:
    but the wicked regardeth not to know it.​

    8 Scornful men bring a city into a snare:
    but wise men turn away wrath.​

    9 If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man,
    whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest.​

    10 The bloodthirsty hate the upright:
    but the just seek his soul.​

    11 A fool uttereth all his mind:
    but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.​

    12 If a ruler hearken to lies,
    all his servants are wicked.​

    13 The poor and the deceitful man meet together:
    the Lord lighteneth both their eyes.​

    14 The king that faithfully judgeth the poor,
    his throne shall be established for ever.​

    15 The rod and reproof give wisdom:
    but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.​

    16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth:
    but the righteous shall see their fall.​

    17 Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest;
    yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.​

    18 Where there is no vision, the people perish:
    but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.​

    19 A servant will not be corrected by words:
    for though he understand he will not answer.​

    20 Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words?
    there is more hope of a fool than of him.​

    21 He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child
    shall have him become his son at the length.​

    22 An angry man stirreth up strife,
    and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.​

    23 A man's pride shall bring him low:
    but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.​

    24 Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul:
    he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth it not.​

    25 The fear of man bringeth a snare:
    but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.​

    26 Many seek the ruler's favour;
    but every man's judgment cometh from the Lord.​

    27 An unjust man is an abomination to the just:
    and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.

    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
