Proverbs Chapter 28The Holy Bible, King James Version
28:1The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.
28:2For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.
28:3A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.
28:4They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.
28:5Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things.
28:6Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
28:7Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.
28:8He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.
28:9He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.
28:10Whoso 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.
28:11The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out.
28:12When righteous men do rejoice, there is great glory: but when the wicked rise, a man is hidden.
28:13He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
28:14Happy is the man that feareth alway: but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief.
28:15As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.
28:16The prince that wanteth understanding is also a great oppressor: but he that hateth covetousness shall prolong his days.
28:17A man that doeth violence to the blood of any person shall flee to the pit; let no man stay him.
28:18Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved: but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.
28:19He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.
28:20A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.
28:21To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.
28:22He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.
28:23He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.
28:24Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer.
28:25He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made fat.
28:26He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.
28:27He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.
28:28When the wicked rise, men hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase.
