Proverbs Chapter 11 Original 1611 Bible Scan


1A false ballance is abomination to the Lord: but a iust weight is his delight.1

2When pride commeth, then commeth shame: but with the lowly is wisedome.2

3The integritie of the vpright shall guide them: but the peruersenesse of transgressours shall destroy them.3

4Riches profite not in the day of wrath: but righteousnesse deliuereth from death.4

5The righteousnesse of the perfect shall direct his way: but the wicked shall fall by his owne wickednesse.5

6The righteousnesse of the vpright shall deliuer them: but transgressours shall be taken in their owne naughtinesse.6

7When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish: and the hope of vniust men perisheth.

8The righteous is deliuered out of trouble, and the wicked commeth in his stead.8

9An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the iust be deliuered.9

10When it goeth well with the righteous, the citie reioyceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.

11By the blessing of the vpright the citie is exalted; but it is ouerthrowen by the mouth of the wicked.

12He that is void of wisedome, despiseth his neighbour: but a man of vnderstanding holdeth his peace.12

13A tale-bearer reuealeth secrets: but hee that is of a faithfull spirit, concealeth the matter.13

14Where no counsell is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellers there is safetie.14

15Hee that is suretie for a stranger, shall smart for it: and hee that hateth suretiship, is sure.15

16A gracious woman retaineth honour: and strong men retaine riches.

17The mercifull man doeth good to his owne soule: but he that is cruell, troubleth his owne flesh.

18The wicked worketh a deceitfull worke: but to him that soweth righteousnesse, shall be a sure reward.

19As righteousnesse tendeth to life: so he that pursueth euill, pursueth it to his owne death.

20They that are of a froward heart, are abomination to the Lord: but such as are vpright in their way, are his delight.

21Though hand ioyne in hand, the wicked shall not be vnpunished: but the seede of the righteous shall be deliuered.

22As a iewell of golde in a swines snowt; so is a faire woman which is without discretion.22

23The desire of the righteous is onely good: but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.

24There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more then is meete, but it tendeth to pouertie.

25The liberall soule shalbe made fat: and he that watereth, shall be watered also himselfe.25

26Hee that withholdeth corne, the people shall curse him: but blessing shall be vpon the head of him that selleth it.

27He that diligently seeketh good, procureth fauour: but hee that seeketh mischiefe, it shall come vnto him.27

28He that trusteth in his riches, shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.28

29He that troubleth his owne house, shall inherite the winde: and the foole shall be seruant to the wise of heart.

30The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life: and hee that winneth soules, is wise.30

31Behold, the righteous shalbe recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner.31
