Geneva Study Bible
   1: The wicked flee when no one pursues; But the righteous are as bold as a lion.
   2: In rebellion, a land has many rulers, But order is maintained by a man of understanding and knowledge.
   3: A needy man who oppresses the poor Is like a driving rain which leaves no crops.
   4: Those who forsake the law praise the wicked; But those who keep the law contend with them.
   5: Evil men don't understand justice; But those who seek Yahweh understand it fully.
   6: Better is the poor who walks in his integrity, Than he who is perverse in his ways, and he is rich.
   7: Whoever keeps the law is a wise son; But he who is a companion of gluttons shames his father.
   8: He who increases his wealth by excessive interest Gathers it for one who has pity on the poor.
   9: He who turns away his ear from hearing the law, Even his prayer is an abomination.
   10: Whoever causes the upright to go astray in an evil way, He will fall into his own trap; But the blameless will inherit good.
   11: The rich man is wise in his own eyes; But the poor who has understanding sees through him.
   12: When the righteous triumph, there is great glory; But when the wicked rise, men hide themselves.
   13: He who conceals his sins doesn't prosper, But whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
   14: Blessed is the man who always fears; But one who hardens his heart falls into trouble.
   15: As a roaring lion or a charging bear, So is a wicked ruler over helpless people.
   16: The ruler who lacks judgment is a great tyrant. One who hates ill-gotten gain will have long days.
   17: A man who is tormented by life blood will be a fugitive until death; No one will support him.
   18: Whoever walks blamelessly is kept safe; But one with perverse ways will fall suddenly.
   19: One who works his land will have an abundance of food; But one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty.
   20: A faithful man is rich with blessings; But one who is eager to be rich will not go unpunished.
   21: To show partiality is not good; Yet a man will do wrong for a piece of bread.
   22: A stingy man hurries after riches, And doesn't know that poverty waits for him.
   23: One who rebukes a man will afterward find more favor Than one who flatters with the tongue.
   24: Whoever robs his father or his mother, and says, "It's not wrong." He is a partner with a destroyer.
   25: One who is greedy stirs up strife; But one who trusts in Yahweh will prosper.
   26: One who trusts in himself is a fool; But one who walks in wisdom, he is kept safe.
   27: One who gives to the poor has no lack; But one who closes his eyes will have many curses.
   28: When the wicked rise, men hide themselves; But when they perish, the righteous thrive.
