Today’s Country: Republic of Yemen
He who is often rebuked, and hardens his neck,
Will suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
If a wise man contends with a foolish man,
Whether the fool rages or laughs, there is no peace.
A fool vents all his feelings,
But a wise man holds them back.
Correct your son, and he will give you rest;
Yes, he will give delight to your soul.
Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint;
But happy is he who keeps the law.
The fear of man brings a snare,
But whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe.
Many seek the ruler’s favor,
But justice for man comes from the Lord.
from Proverbs 29
