Mishlei (Book of Proverbs), Chapter 11

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 A false balance is an abomination to HaShem; but a perfect weight is His delight.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 When pride cometh, then cometh shame; but with the lowly is wisdom.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 The integrity of the upright shall guide them; but the perverseness of the faithless shall destroy them.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 Riches profit not in the day of wrath; but righteousness delivereth from death.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 The righteousness of the sincere shall make straight his way; but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them; but the faithless shall be trapped in their own crafty device.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish, and the hope of strength perisheth.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 With his mouth the impious man destroyeth his neighbour; but through knowledge shall the righteous be delivered.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth; and when the wicked perish, there is joy.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted; but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 He that despiseth his neighbour lacketh understanding; but a man of discernment holdeth his peace.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets; but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth a matter.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 Where no wise direction is, a people falleth; but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it; but he that hateth them that strike hands is secure.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 A gracious woman obtaineth honour; and strong men obtain riches.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 The merciful man doeth good to his own soul; but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 The wicked earneth deceitful wages; but he that soweth righteousness hath a sure reward.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 Stedfast righteousness tendeth to life; but he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 They that are perverse in heart are an abomination to HaShem; but such as are upright in their way are His delight.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 My hand upon it! the evil man shall not be unpunished; but the seed of the righteous shall escape.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 As a ring of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman that turneth aside from discretion.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 The desire of the righteous is only good; but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'24 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth only to want.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000018-QINU`"'25 The beneficent soul shall be made rich, and he that satisfieth abundantly shall be satisfied also himself.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000019-QINU`"'26 He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him; but blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001A-QINU`"'27 He that diligently seeketh good seeketh favour; but he that searcheth for evil, it shall come unto him.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001B-QINU`"'28 He that trusteth in his riches shall fall; but the righteous shall flourish as foliage.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001C-QINU`"'29 He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind; and the foolish shall be servant to the wise of heart.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001D-QINU`"'30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that is wise winneth souls.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001E-QINU`"'31 Behold, the righteous shall be requited in the earth; how much more the wicked and the sinner!
