KJV PRO28 with Strong's Hebrew/GreekPRO27.htm PRO29.htm
28:1 The wicked [H7563] flee [H5127] when no man pursueth [H7291] : but the righteous [H6662] are bold [H982] as a lion [H3715] .
28:2 For the transgression [H6588] of a land [H776] many [H7227] [are] the princes [H8269] thereof: but by a man [H120] of understanding [H995] [and] knowledge [H3045] the state [H3651] [thereof] shall be prolonged [H748] .(by: or, by men of understanding and wisdom shall they likewise be prolonged)
28:3 A poor [H7326] man [H1397] that oppresseth [H6231] the poor [H1800] [is like] a sweeping [H5502] rain [H4306] which leaveth no food [H3899] .(which: Heb. without food)
28:4 They that forsake [H5800] the law [H8451] praise [H1984] the wicked [H7563] : but such as keep [H8104] the law [H8451] contend [H1624] with them.
28:5 Evil [H7451] men [H582] understand [H995] not judgment [H4941] : but they that seek [H1245] the LORD [H3068] understand [H995] all [things].
28:6 Better [H2896] [is] the poor [H7326] that walketh [H1980] in his uprightness [H8537] , than [he that is] perverse [H6141] [in his] ways [H1870] , though he [be] rich [H6223] .
28:7 Whoso keepeth [H5341] the law [H8451] [is] a wise [H995] son [H1121] : but he that is a companion [H7462] of riotous [H2151] [men] shameth [H3637] his father [H1] .(is a companion: or, feedeth gluttons)
28:8 He that by usury [H5392] and unjust gain [H8636] increaseth [H7235] his substance [H1952] , he shall gather [H6908] it for him that will pity [H2603] the poor [H1800] .(unjust: Heb. by increase)
28:9 He that turneth away [H5493] his ear [H241] from hearing [H8085] the law [H8451] , even his prayer [H8605] [shall be] abomination [H8441] .
28:10 Whoso causeth the righteous [H3477] to go astray [H7686] in an evil [H7451] way [H1870] , he shall fall [H5307] himself into his own pit [H7816] : but the upright [H8549] shall have good [H2896] [things] in possession [H5157] .
28:11 The rich [H6223] man [H376] [is] wise [H2450] in his own conceit [H5869] ; but the poor [H1800] that hath understanding [H995] searcheth him out [H2713] .(own: Heb. eyes)
28:12 When righteous [H6662] [men] do rejoice [H5970] , [there is] great [H7227] glory [H8597] : but when the wicked [H7563] rise [H6965] , a man [H120] is hidden [H2664] .(hidden: or, sought for)
28:13 He that covereth [H3680] his sins [H6588] shall not prosper [H6743] : but whoso confesseth [H3034] and forsaketh [H5800] [them] shall have mercy [H7355] .
28:14 Happy [H835] [is] the man [H120] that feareth [H6342] alway [H8548] : but he that hardeneth [H7185] his heart [H3820] shall fall [H5307] into mischief [H7451] .
28:15 [As] a roaring [H5098] lion [H738] , and a ranging [H8264] bear [H1677] ; [so is] a wicked [H7563] ruler [H4910] over the poor [H1800] people [H5971] .
28:16 The prince [H5057] that wanteth [H2638] understanding [H8394] [is] also a great [H7227] oppressor [H4642] : [but] he that hateth [H8130] covetousness [H1215] shall prolong [H748] [his] days [H3117] .
28:17 A man [H120] that doeth violence [H6231] to the blood [H1818] of [any] person [H5315] shall flee [H5127] to the pit [H953] ; let no man stay [H8551] him.
28:18 Whoso walketh [H1980] uprightly [H8549] shall be saved [H3467] : but [he that is] perverse [H6140] [in his] ways [H1870] shall fall [H5307] at once [H259] .
28:19 He that tilleth [H5647] his land [H127] shall have plenty [H7646] of bread [H3899] : but he that followeth [H7291] after vain [H7386] [persons] shall have poverty enough [H7389] .
28:20 A faithful [H530] man [H376] shall abound [H7227] with blessings [H1293] : but he that maketh haste [H213] to be rich [H6238] shall not be innocent [H5352] .(innocent: or, unpunished)
28:21 To have respect [H5234] of persons [H6440] [is] not good [H2896] : for for a piece [H6595] of bread [H3899] [that] man [H1397] will transgress [H6586] .
28:22 He [H376] that hasteth [H926] to be rich [H1952] [hath] an evil [H7451] eye [H5869] , and considereth [H3045] not that poverty [H2639] shall come [H935] upon him.(hasteth: or, hath and evil eye hasteth to be rich)
28:23 He that rebuketh [H3198] a man [H120] afterwards [H310] shall find [H4672] more favour [H2580] than he that flattereth [H2505] with the tongue [H3956] .
28:24 Whoso robbeth [H1497] his father [H1] or his mother [H517] , and saith [H559] , [It is] no transgression [H6588] ; the same [is] the companion [H2270] of a destroyer [H376] [H7843] .(a destroyer: Heb. a man destroying)
28:25 He that is of a proud [H7342] heart [H5315] stirreth up [H1624] strife [H4066] : but he that putteth his trust [H982] in the LORD [H3068] shall be made fat [H1878] .
28:26 He that trusteth [H982] in his own heart [H3820] is a fool [H3684] : but whoso walketh [H1980] wisely [H2451] , he shall be delivered [H4422] .
28:27 He that giveth [H5414] unto the poor [H7326] shall not lack [H4270] : but he that hideth [H5956] his eyes [H5869] shall have many [H7227] a curse [H3994] .
28:28 When the wicked [H7563] rise [H6965] , men [H120] hide [H5641] themselves: but when they perish [H6] , the righteous [H6662] increase [H7235] .
