020:028:001
The wicked flee when no man pursueth:
but the righteous are bold as a lion.


020:028:002
For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof:
but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.


020:028:003
A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.


020:028:004
They that forsake the law praise the wicked:
but such as keep the law contend with them.


020:028:005
Evil men understand not judgment:
but they that seek the LORD understand all things.


020:028:006
Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness,
than he that is perverse in his ways,
though he be rich.


020:028:007
Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son:
but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.


020:028:008
He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance,
he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.


020:028:009
He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law,
even his prayer shall be abomination.


020:028:010
Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way,
he shall fall himself into his own pit:
but the upright shall have good things in possession.


020:028:011
The rich man is wise in his own conceit;
but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out.


020:028:012
When righteous men do rejoice,
there is great glory:
but when the wicked rise,
a man is hidden.


020:028:013
He that covereth his sins shall not prosper:
but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.


020:028:014
Happy is the man that feareth alway:
but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief.


020:028:015
As a roaring lion,
and a ranging bear;
so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.


020:028:016
The prince that wanteth understanding is also a great oppressor:
but he that hateth covetousness shall prolong his days.


020:028:017
A man that doeth violence to the blood of any person shall flee to the pit;
let no man stay him.


020:028:018
Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved:
but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.


020:028:019
He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread:
but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.


020:028:020
A faithful man shall abound with blessings:
but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.


020:028:021
To have respect of persons is not good:
for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.


020:028:022
He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye,
and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.


020:028:023
He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.


020:028:024
Whoso robbeth his father or his mother,
and saith,
It is no transgression;
the same is the companion of a destroyer.


020:028:025
He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife:
but he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made fat.


020:028:026
He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool:
but whoso walketh wisely,
he shall be delivered.


020:028:027
He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack:
but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.


020:028:028
When the wicked rise,
men hide themselves:
but when they perish,
the righteous increase.
