Mishlei (Book of Proverbs), Chapter 28

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 The wicked flee when no man pursueth; but the righteous are secure as a young lion.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof; but by a man of understanding and knowledge established order shall long continue.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 A poor man that oppresseth the weak is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 They that forsake the law praise the wicked; but such as keep the law contend with them.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 Evil men understand not justice; but they that seek HaShem understand all things.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 A wise son observeth the teaching; but he that is a companion of gluttonous men shameth his father.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 He that augmenteth his substance by interest and increase, gathereth it for him that is gracious to the poor.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 Whoso causeth the upright to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit; but the whole-hearted shall inherit good.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 The rich man is wise in his own eyes; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him through.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 When the righteous exult, there is great glory; but when the wicked rise, men must be sought for.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 He that covereth his transgressions shall not prosper; but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall obtain mercy.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 Happy is the man that feareth alway; but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into evil.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 As a roaring lion, and a ravenous bear; so is a wicked ruler over a poor people.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 The prince that lacketh understanding is also a great oppressor; but he that hateth covetousness shall prolong his days.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 A man that is laden with the blood of any person shall hasten his steps unto the pit; none will support him.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved; but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 He that tilleth his ground shall have plenty of bread; but he that followeth after vain things shall have poverty enough.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 A faithful man shall abound with blessings; but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be unpunished.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 To have respect of persons is not good; for a man will transgress for a piece of bread.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 He that hath an evil eye hasteneth after riches, and knoweth not that want shall come upon him.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 He that rebuketh a man shall in the end find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'24 Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith: 'It is no transgression', the same is the companion of a destroyer.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000018-QINU`"'25 He that is of a greedy spirit stirreth up strife; but he that putteth his trust in HaShem shall be abundantly gratified.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000019-QINU`"'26 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool; but whoso walketh wisely, he shall escape.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001A-QINU`"'27 He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack; but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001B-QINU`"'28 When the wicked rise, men hide themselves; but when they perish, the righteous increase.
