Geneva Study Bible
   1: The wicked have fled and there is no pursuer. And the righteous as a young lion is confident.
   2: By the transgression of a land many [are] its heads. And by an intelligent man, Who knoweth right -- it is prolonged.
   3: A man -- poor and oppressing the weak, [Is] a sweeping rain, and there is no bread.
   4: Those forsaking the law praise the wicked, Those keeping the law plead against them.
   5: Evil men understand not judgment, And those seeking Jehovah understand all.
   6: Better [is] the poor walking in his integrity, Than the perverse of ways who is rich.
   7: Whoso is keeping the law is an intelligent son, And a friend of gluttons, Doth cause his father to blush.
   8: Whoso is multiplying his wealth by biting and usury, For one favouring the poor doth gather it.
   9: Whoso is turning his ear from hearing the law, Even his prayer [is] an abomination.
   10: Whoso is causing the upright to err in an evil way, Into his own pit he doth fall, And the perfect do inherit good.
   11: A rich man is wise in his own eyes, And the intelligent poor searcheth him.
   12: In the exulting of the righteous the glory [is] abundant, And in the rising of the wicked man is apprehensive.
   13: Whoso is covering his transgressions prospereth not, And he who is confessing and forsaking hath mercy.
   14: O the happiness of a man fearing continually, And whoso is hardening his heart falleth into evil.
   15: A growling lion, and a ranging bear, [Is] the wicked ruler over a poor people.
   16: A leader lacking understanding multiplieth oppressions, Whoso is hating dishonest gain prolongeth days.
   17: A man oppressed with the blood of a soul, Unto the pit fleeth, none taketh hold on him.
   18: Whoso is walking uprightly is saved, And the perverted of ways falleth at once.
   19: Whoso is tilling his ground is satisfied [with] bread, And whoso is pursuing vanity, Is filled [with] poverty.
   20: A stedfast man hath multiplied blessings, And whoso is hasting to be rich is not acquitted.
   21: To discern faces is not good, And for a piece of bread doth a man transgress.
   22: Troubled for wealth [is] the man [with] an evil eye, And he knoweth not that want doth meet him.
   23: Whoso is reproving a man afterwards findeth grace, More than a flatterer with the tongue.
   24: Whoso is robbing his father, or his mother, And is saying, 'It is not transgression,' A companion he is to a destroyer.
   25: Whoso is proud in soul stirreth up contention, And whoso is trusting on Jehovah is made fat.
   26: Whoso is trusting in his heart is a fool, And whoso is walking in wisdom is delivered.
   27: Whoso is giving to the poor hath no lack, And whoso is hiding his eyes multiplied curses.
   28: In the rising of the wicked a man is hidden, And in their destruction the righteous multiply!
