箴言 29

1屡教不改、顽固不化者,
    必突然灭亡,无可挽救。
义人增多,万众欢腾;
    恶人得势,万民叹息。
爱慕智慧的使父亲欢欣,
    结交妓女的必耗尽钱财。
君王秉公行义,国家安定;
    他若收受贿赂,国必倾倒。
奉承邻舍,等于设网罗绊他。
恶人被自己的罪缠住,
    义人却常常欢喜歌唱。
义人关心穷人的冤屈,
    恶人对此漠不关心。
狂徒煽动全城,
    智者平息众怒。
智者跟愚人对簿公堂,
    愚人会怒骂嬉笑不止。
10 嗜杀之徒憎恶纯全无过的人,
    但正直的人保护他们[a]
11 愚人尽发其怒,
    智者忍气含怒。
12 君王若听谗言,
    臣仆必成奸徒。
13 贫穷人和欺压者有共同点:
    他们的眼睛都是耶和华所赐。
14 君王若秉公审判穷人,
    他的王位必永远坚立。
15 管教之杖使孩子得智慧,
    放纵的子女让母亲蒙羞。
16 恶人当道,罪恶泛滥;
    义人必得见他们败亡。
17 好好管教儿子,
    他会带给你平安和喜乐。
18 百姓无神谕便任意妄为,
    但遵守律法的人必蒙福。
19 管教仆人不能单靠言语,
    因为他虽明白却不服从。
20 言语急躁的人,
    还不如愚人有希望。
21 主人若从小就娇惯仆人,
    他终必成为主人的麻烦。
22 愤怒的人挑起纷争,
    暴躁的人多有过犯。
23 骄傲的人必遭贬抑,
    谦卑的人必得尊荣。
24 与盗贼为伍是憎恶自己,
    他即使发誓也不敢作证。
25 惧怕人的必自陷网罗,
    信靠耶和华的必安稳。
26 许多人讨君王的欢心,
    但正义伸张靠耶和华。
27 为非作歹,义人厌恶;
    行为正直,恶人憎恨。

Proverbs 29

Warnings and Instructions

1A man who hardens his neck after much reproof
Will suddenly be broken [a]beyond remedy.
When the righteous [b]increase, the people rejoice,
But when a wicked man rules, people groan.
A man who loves wisdom makes his father glad,
But he who keeps company with harlots wastes his wealth.
The king gives stability to the land by justice,
But a man who takes bribes overthrows it.
A man who flatters his neighbor
Is spreading a net for his steps.
By transgression an evil man is ensnared,
But the righteous sings and rejoices.
The righteous [c]is concerned for the rights of the poor,
The wicked does not understand such [d]concern.
Scorners set a city aflame,
But wise men turn away anger.
When a wise man has a controversy with a foolish man,
[e]The foolish man either rages or laughs, and there is no rest.
10 Men of bloodshed hate the blameless,
But the upright [f]are concerned for his life.
11 A fool [g]always loses his temper,
But a wise man holds it back.
12 If a ruler pays attention to falsehood,
All his ministers become wicked.
13 The poor man and the oppressor [h]have this in common:
The Lord gives light to the eyes of both.
14 If a king judges the poor with truth,
His throne will be established forever.
15 The rod and reproof give wisdom,
But a child [i]who gets his own way brings shame to his mother.
16 When the wicked [j]increase, transgression increases;
But the righteous will see their fall.
17 Correct your son, and he will give you comfort;
He will also [k]delight your soul.
18 Where there is no [l]vision, the people are unrestrained,
But happy is he who keeps the law.
19 A slave will not be instructed by words alone;
For though he understands, there will be no response.
20 Do you see a man who is hasty in his words?
There is more hope for a fool than for him.
21 He who pampers his slave from childhood
Will in the end find him to be a son.
22 An angry man stirs up strife,
And a hot-tempered man abounds in transgression.
23 A man’s pride will bring him low,
But a humble spirit will obtain honor.
24 He who is a partner with a thief hates his own life;
He hears the oath but tells nothing.
25 The fear of man [m]brings a snare,
But he who trusts in the Lord will be exalted.
26 Many seek the ruler’s [n]favor,
But justice for man comes from the Lord.
27 An unjust man is abominable to the righteous,
And he who is upright in the way is abominable to the wicked.
