Proverbs 28:1 The vngodly flyeth no man chasynge him, but the rightuous stondeth stiff as a lyon. Proverbs 28:2 Because of synne ye londe doth oft chaunge hir prynce: but thorow men of vnderstondinge & wysdome a realme endureth longe. Proverbs 28:3 One poore man oppressinge another by violence, is like a contynuall rayne that destroyeth ye frute. Proverbs 28:4 They that forsake the lawe, prayse ye vngodly; but soch as kepe the lawe, abhorre them. Proverbs 28:5 Wicked men discerne not the thinge yt is right, but they that seke after the LORDE, discusse all thinges. Proverbs 28:6 A poore man ledynge a godly life, is better then the riche that goeth in frowarde wayes. Proverbs 28:7 Whoso kepeth the lawe, is a childe of vnderstondinge: but he yt fedeth ryotous men, shameth his father. Proverbs 28:8 Who so increaseth his riches by vautage & wynnynge, let him gather them to helpe the poore withall.

Proverbs 28:10 Who so ledeth ye rightuous in to an euell waye, shal fall in to his owne pytt, but ye iust shal haue the good in possession. Proverbs 28:11 The rich man thynketh him self to be wyse, but the poore that hath vnderstondinge, ca perceaue him wel ynough. Proverbs 28:12 When rightuous men are in prosperite, the doth honoure florish: but when the vngodly come vp, ye state of men chaungeth. Proverbs 28:13 He that hydeth his synnes, shall not prospere: but who so knowlegeth them and forsaketh them, shall haue mercy. Proverbs 28:14 Well is him that stodeth allwaye in awe: as for him that hardeneth his herte, he shal fall in to mischefe. Proverbs 28:15 Like as a roaringe lyon and an hongrie beer, euen so is an vngodly prynce ouer the poore people. Proverbs 28:16 Where the prynce is without vnderstondinge, there is greate oppression & wronge: but yf he be soch one as hateth couetousnesse, he shal longe raigne. Proverbs 28:17 He that by violece sheddeth eny mans bloude, shal be a rennagate vnto his graue, and no man shal be able to sucor him.

Proverbs 28:19 He yt tylleth his londe, shal haue plenteousnesse of bred: but he that foloweth ydilnesse, shal haue pouerte ynough. Proverbs 28:20 A faithfull man is greatly to be commeded, but he that maketh to moch haist for to be riche, shal not be vngiltie. Proverbs 28:21 To haue respecte of personnes in iudgment is not good: And why? he will do wronge, yee euen for a pece of bred. Proverbs 28:22 He that will be rich all to soone, hath an euell eye, and considereth not, that pouerte shall come vpon him. Proverbs 28:23 He that rebuketh a man, shall fynde more fauoure at ye last, the he that flatreth him. Proverbs 28:24 Who so robbeth his father and mother, and sayeth it is no synne: the same is like vnto a mortherer. Proverbs 28:25 He that is of a proude stomacke, stereth vp strife: but he that putteth his trust in ye LORDE, shalbe well fedd. Proverbs 28:26 He that trusteth in his owne hert, is a foole: but he that dealeth wisely, shalbe safe. Proverbs 28:27 He that geueth vnto the poore, shal not wante: but he that turneth awaye his eyes from soch as be in necessite, shall suffre greate pouerte himself. Proverbs 28:28 Whan the vngodly are come vp, men are fayne to hyde them selues: but whe they perish, the rightuous increase.
