纯全无过的人蒙耶和华喜爱。

义人的子孙必得拯救。

22女子貌美无内涵,

如同猪鼻挂金环。

23义人的愿望结出善果,

恶人的希望招致烈怒。

有人一毛不拔,反而越来越穷。

25慷慨好施的必得昌盛,

恩待他人的必蒙恩待。

乐意卖粮,必蒙祝福。

愚人必做智者的仆役。

智者深得人心。

31看啊!义人在世上尚且遭报11:31 义人在世上尚且遭报”七十士译本为“义人尚且难以得救”,参见彼得前书4:18

更何况罪人和恶人呢?

King James Version

Proverbs 11:1-31

1A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight.11.1 A false…: Heb. Balances of deceit11.1 just…: Heb. perfect stone 2When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom. 3The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them. 4Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.

5The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.11.5 direct: Heb. rectify 6The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them: but transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness. 7When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish: and the hope of unjust men perisheth. 8The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead. 9An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.

10When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting. 11By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

12He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.11.12 void…: Heb. destitute of heart 13A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.11.13 A talebearer: Heb. He that walketh, being a talebearer 14Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety. 15He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it: and he that hateth suretiship is sure.11.15 smart: Heb. be sore broken11.15 suretiship: Heb. those that strike hands 16A gracious woman retaineth honour: and strong men retain riches. 17The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh. 18The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward. 19As righteousness tendeth to life: so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death. 20They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the LORD: but such as are upright in their way are his delight. 21Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered. 22As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.11.22 is without: Heb. departeth from 23The desire of the righteous is only good: but the expectation of the wicked is wrath. 24There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty. 25The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.11.25 liberal…: Heb. soul of blessing 26He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: but blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it. 27He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him. 28He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch. 29He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart. 30The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.11.30 winneth: Heb. taketh 31Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner.
