Chapter 11

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

 A hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbor: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.

10

 When the righteous prosper, 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 neighbor: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.

13

 A tale-bearer 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 counselors 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 honor: 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 who 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 favor: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come to 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 upon the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner.
