Proverbs 29:19-27 NIV

Proverbs 29:19-27

Servants cannot be corrected by mere words;

though they understand, they will not respond.

Do you see someone who speaks in haste?

There is more hope for a fool than for them.

A servant pampered from youth

will turn out to be insolent.

An angry person stirs up conflict,

and a hot-tempered person commits many sins.

Pride brings a person low,

but the lowly in spirit gain honor.

The accomplices of thieves are their own enemies;

they are put under oath and dare not testify.

Fear of man will prove to be a snare,

but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.

Many seek an audience with a ruler,

but it is from the Lord that one gets justice.

The righteous detest the dishonest;

the wicked detest the upright.
