The Book of Proverbs Chapter 29 – New King James Version (NKJV) – Audio Bible

Chapter 29 He who is often rebuked and hardens his Neck will suddenly be destroyed and that Without remedy When the righteous are in Authority the People rejoice But when a wicked man rules the people Groan Whoever loves wisdom makes his father Rejoice But a companion of harlots wastes his Wealth The King establishes The Land by Justice But he who receives bribes overthrows it A man who flatters his neighbor Spreads a net for his feet By transgression an evil man is snared But the righteous sings and rejoices The righteous considers the cause of the Poor but the wicked does not understand Such knowledge Scoffers set a city aflame But wise men turn away wroth If a wise man contends with a foolish Man whether the fool rages or laughs There is no peace The bloodthirsty hate the blameless but The upright seek his well-being A fool vents all his feelings but a wise Man holds them back If a ruler pays attention to lies all His servants become Wicked The poor man and the oppressor have this In common

The Lord gives light to the eyes of both The king who judges the poor with truth His throne will be established forever The rod and rebuke give wisdom but a Child Left to himself brings shame to His mother When the wicked are multiplied Transgression increases But the righteous will see their fall Correct your son and he will give you Rest yes he will give Delight to your Soul Where there is no Revelation the people Cast off restraint But happy is he who keeps the law A servant will not be corrected by mere Words For though he understands he will not Respond Do you see a man Hasty in his words There is more hope for a fool than for Him He who Pampers his servant from Childhood will have him as a son in the End An angry man stirs up strife and a Furious man abounds in transgression A man's Pride will bring him low But the humble in spirit will retain Honor Whoever is a partner with a thief hates His own life He swears to tell the truth but reveals Nothing

The fear of man brings a snare But whoever trusts in the Lord shall be Safe Many seek the rulers favor But Justice for man comes from the Lord An unjust man is an Abomination to the Righteous And he who is upright in the way is an Abomination to the wicked
