Proverbs 11:1-4 (ESV)

A false balance is an abomination to the Lord,

but a just weight is his delight.

When pride comes, then comes disgrace,

but with the humble is wisdom.

The integrity of the upright guides them,

but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them.

Riches do not profit in the day of wrath,

but righteousness delivers from death.

Proverbs 11:9 (ESV)

With his mouth the godless man would destroy his neighbor,

but by knowledge the righteous are delivered.

Proverbs 11:12–13 (ESV)

12  Whoever belittles his neighbor lacks sense,

but a man of understanding remains silent.

13  Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets,

but he who is trustworthy in spirit keeps a thing covered.

Proverbs 11:17 (ESV)

17  A man who is kind benefits himself,

but a cruel man hurts himself.


Proverbs 11:19 (ESV)

19  Whoever is steadfast in righteousness will live,

but he who pursues evil will die.

Proverbs 11:22 (ESV)

22  Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout

is a beautiful woman without discretion.

Proverbs 11:24-25 (ESV)

24  One gives freely, yet grows all the richer;

another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.

25  Whoever brings blessing will be enriched,

and one who waters will himself be watered.

Proverbs 11:29 (ESV)

29  Whoever troubles his own household will inherit the wind,

and the fool will be servant to the wise of heart.

Proverbs 11:31 (ESV)

31  If the righteous is repaid on earth,

how much more the wicked and the sinner!
