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

| Proverbs 28 Text (Latin)
- Fugit impius, nemine persequente ; justus autem, quasi leo confidens, absque terrore erit.
- Propter peccata terræ multi principes ejus ; et propter hominis sapientiam, et horum scientiam quæ dicuntur, vita ducis longior erit.
- Vir pauper calumnians pauperes similis est imbri vehementi in quo paratur fames.
- Qui derelinquunt legem laudant impium ; qui custodiunt, succenduntur contra eum.
- Viri mali non cogitant judicium ; qui autem inquirunt Dominum animadvertunt omnia.
- Melior est pauper ambulans in simplicitate sua quam dives in pravis itineribus.
- Qui custodit legem filius sapiens est ; qui autem comessatores pascit confundit patrem suum.
- Qui coacervat divitias usuris et fœnore, liberali in pauperes congregat eas.
- Qui declinat aures suas ne audiat legem, oratio ejus erit execrabilis.
- Qui decipit justos in via mala, in interitu suo corruet, et simplices possidebunt bona ejus.
- Sapiens sibi videtur vir dives ; pauper autem prudens scrutabitur eum.
- In exsultatione justorum multa gloria est ; regnantibus impiis ruinæ hominum.
- Qui abscondit scelera sua non dirigetur ; qui autem confessus fuerit et reliquerit ea, misericordiam consequetur.
- Beatus homo qui semper est pavidus ; qui vero mentis est duræ corruet in malum.
- Leo rugiens et ursus esuriens, princeps impius super populum pauperem.
- Dux indigens prudentia multos opprimet per calumniam ; qui autem odit avaritiam, longi fient dies ejus.
- Hominem qui calumniatur animæ sanguinem, si usque ad lacum fugerit, nemo sustinet.
- Qui ambulat simpliciter salvus erit ; qui perversis graditur viis concidet semel.
- Qui operatur terram suam satiabitur panibus ; qui autem sectatur otium replebitur egestate.
- Vir fidelis multum laudabitur ; qui autem festinat ditari non erit innocens.
- Qui cognoscit in judicio faciem non bene facit ; iste et pro buccella panis deserit veritatem.
- Vir qui festinat ditari, et aliis invidet, ignorat quod egestas superveniet ei.
- Qui corripit hominem gratiam postea inveniet apud eum, magis quam ille qui per linguæ blandimenta decipit.
- Qui subtrahit aliquid a patre suo et a matre, et dicit hoc non esse peccatum, particeps homicidæ est.
- Qui se jactat et dilatat, jurgia concitat ; qui vero sperat in Domino sanabitur.
- Qui confidit in corde suo stultus est ; qui autem graditur sapienter, ipse salvabitur.
- Qui dat pauperi non indigebit ; qui despicit deprecantem sustinebit penuriam.
- Cum surrexerint impii, abscondentur homines ; cum illi perierint, multiplicabuntur justi.
| Proverbs 28 Text (KJV)
- The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.
- 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.
- A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.
- They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.
- Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things.
- Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
- Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.
- He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.
- He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.
- 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.
- The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out.
- When righteous men do rejoice, there is great glory: but when the wicked rise, a man is hidden.
- He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
- Happy is the man that feareth alway: but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief.
- As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.
- The prince that wanteth understanding is also a great oppressor: but he that hateth covetousness shall prolong his days.
- A man that doeth violence to the blood of any person shall flee to the pit; let no man stay him.
- Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved: but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.
- He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.
- A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.
- To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.
- He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.
- He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.
- Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer.
- He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made fat.
- He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.
- He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.
- When the wicked rise, men hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase.
