Proverbs chapter 28

The ungodly flyeth no man chasing him, but the righteous stondeth stiff as a lion.
Because of sin the land doth oft change her prince: but thorow men of understanding and wisdom a realm endureth long.
One poor man oppressing another by violence, is like a continual rain that destroyeth the fruit.
They that forsake the law, praise the ungodly: but such as keep the law, abhor them.
Wicked men discern not the thing that is right, but they that seek after the LORD, discuss all things.
A poor man leading a godly life, is better than the rich that goeth in froward ways.
Whoso keepeth the law, is a child of understanding: but he that feedeth riotous men, shameth his father.
Who so increaseth his riches by vantage and winning, let him gather them to help the poor withal.
He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, his prayer shall be abhorred.
Who so leadeth the righteous in to an evil way, shall fall into his own pit, but the just shall have the good in possession.
The rich man thinketh himself to be wise, but the poor that hath understanding, can perceive him well enough.
When righteous men are in prosperity, then doth honour flourish: but when the ungodly come up, the state of men changeth.
He that hideth his sins, shall not prosper: but who so knowledgeth them and forsaketh them, shall have mercy.
Well is him that stondeth alway in awe: as for him that hardeneth his heart, he shall fall into mischief.
Like as a roaring lion and an hungry bear, even so is an ungodly prince over the poor people.
Where the prince is without understanding, there is great oppression and wrong: but if he be such one as hateth covetousness, he shall long reign.
He that by violence sheddeth any man's blood, shall be a runagate unto his grave, and no man shall be able to succor him.
Who so leadeth a godly and an innocent life, shall be safe: but he that goeth froward ways, shall once have a fall.
He that tilleth his land, shall have plenteousness of bread: but he that followeth idleness, shall have poverty enough.
A faithful man is greatly to be commended, but he that maketh too much haste for to be rich, shall not be unguilty.
To have respect of persons in judgement is not good: And why? he will do wrong, yea even for a piece of bread.
He that will be rich all too soon, hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.
He that rebuketh a man, shall find more favour at the last, than he that flattereth him.
Who so robbeth his father and mother, and sayeth it is no sin: the same is like unto a murderer.
He that is of a proud stomach, stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the LORD, shall be well fed.
He that trusteth in his own heart, is a fool: but he that dealeth wisely, shall be safe.
He that giveth unto the poor, shall not want: but he that turneth away his eyes from such as be in necessity, shall suffer great poverty himself.
When the ungodly are come up, men are fain to hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase.
