Prov. 29:10-18 NIV

Prov. 29:10-18

The bloodthirsty hate a person of integrity

and seek to kill the upright.

Fools give full vent to their rage,

but the wise bring calm in the end.

If a ruler listens to lies,

all his officials become wicked.

The poor and the oppressor have this in common:

The Lord gives sight to the eyes of both.

If a king judges the poor with fairness,

his throne will be established forever.

A rod and a reprimand impart wisdom,

but a child left undisciplined disgraces its mother.

When the wicked thrive, so does sin,

but the righteous will see their downfall.

Discipline your children, and they will give you peace;

they will bring you the delights you desire.

Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint;

but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction.
