Proverbs 11


11:1 A false balance [is] abomination to the LORD: but a just
 weight [is] his delight.
11:2 [When] pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly
 [is] wisdom.
11:3 The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the
 perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.
11:4 Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness
 delivereth from death.
11:5 The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: but
 the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.
11:6 The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them: but
 transgressors shall be taken in [their own] naughtiness.
11:7 When a wicked man dieth, [his] expectation shall perish:
 and the hope of unjust [men] perisheth.
11:8 The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked
 cometh in his stead.
11:9 A hypocrite with [his] mouth destroyeth his neighbor: but
 through knowledge shall the just be delivered.
11:10 When the righteous prosper, the city rejoiceth: and when
 the wicked perish, [there is] shouting.
11:11 By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it
 is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.
11:12 He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbor: but a
 man of understanding holdeth his peace.
11:13 A tale-bearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a
 faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
11:14 Where no counsel [is], the people fall: but in the
 multitude of counselors [there is] safety.
11:15 He that is surety for a stranger shall smart [for it]: and
 he that hateth suretiship is sure.
11:16 A gracious woman retaineth honor: and strong [men] retain
 riches.
11:17 The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but [he that
 is] cruel troubleth his own flesh.
11:18 The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that
 soweth righteousness [shall be] a sure reward.
11:19 As righteousness [tendeth] to life: so he that pursueth
 evil [pursueth it] to his own death.
11:20 They that are of a froward heart [are] abomination to the
 LORD: but [such as are] upright in [their] way [are] his
 delight.
11:21 [Though] hand [join] in hand, the wicked shall not be
 unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
11:22 [As] a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, [so is] a fair
 woman who is without discretion.
11:23 The desire of the righteous [is] only good: [but] the
 expectation of the wicked [is] wrath.
11:24 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and [there
 is] that withholdeth more than is meet, but [it tendeth] to
 poverty.
11:25 The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth
 shall be watered also himself.
11:26 He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: but
 blessing [shall be] upon the head of him that selleth [it].
11:27 He that diligently seeketh good procureth favor: but he
 that seeketh mischief, it shall come to him.
11:28 He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the
 righteous shall flourish as a branch.
11:29 He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind:
 and the fool [shall be] servant to the wise of heart.
11:30 The fruit of the righteous [is] a tree of life; and he
 that winneth souls [is] wise.
11:31 Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed upon the earth:
 much more the wicked and the sinner.
