1 He that being often reproved hardeneth his neck Shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
2 When the righteous are increased, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man beareth rule, the people sigh.
3 Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father; But he that keepeth company with harlots wasteth his'substance.
6 In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare; But the righteous doth sing and rejoice.
7 The righteous taketh knowledge of the cause of the poor; The wicked hath not understanding to know it .
9 If a wise man hath a controversy with a foolish man, Whether he be angry or laugh, there will be no rest.
16 When the wicked are increased, transgression increaseth; But the righteous shall look upon their fall.
18 Where there is no vision, the people cast off restraint; But he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
21 He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child Shall have him become a son at the last.
24 Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul; He heareth the adjuration and uttereth nothing.
