Book of Proverbs Chapter 28

PROVERBS 28:1 The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.

PROVERBS 28:2 For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.

PROVERBS 28:3 A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.

PROVERBS 28:4 They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.

PROVERBS 28:5 Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things.

PROVERBS 28:6 Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.

PROVERBS 28:7 Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.

PROVERBS 28:8 He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.

PROVERBS 28:9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.

PROVERBS 28:10 Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: but the upright shall have good things in possession.

PROVERBS 28:11 The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out.

PROVERBS 28:12 When righteous men do rejoice, there is great glory: but when the wicked rise, a man is hidden.

PROVERBS 28:13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

PROVERBS 28:14 Happy is the man that feareth alway: but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief.

PROVERBS 28:15 As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.

PROVERBS 28:16 The prince that wanteth understanding is also a great oppressor: but he that hateth covetousness shall prolong his days.

PROVERBS 28:17 A man that doeth violence to the blood of any person shall flee to the pit; let no man stay him.

PROVERBS 28:18 Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved: but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.

PROVERBS 28:19 He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.

PROVERBS 28:20 A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.

PROVERBS 28:21 To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.

PROVERBS 28:22 He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.

PROVERBS 28:23 He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.

PROVERBS 28:24 Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer.

PROVERBS 28:25 He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made fat.

PROVERBS 28:26 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.

PROVERBS 28:27 He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.

PROVERBS 28:28 When the wicked rise, men hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase.

History of the King James Bible

Meaning and pronunciation of Hebrew names in the Old Testament

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
