Context
The Stiff-Necked Will Be Destroyed

1He, that being often reproved hardens his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy. 2When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked bears rule, the people mourn. 3Whoever loves wisdom rejoices his father: but he that keeps company with harlots spends his substance. 4The king by judgment establishes the land: but he that receives gifts overthrows it. 5A man that flatters his neighbor spreads a net for his feet. 6In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous does sing and rejoice. 7The righteous considers the cause of the poor: but the wicked regards not to know it. 8Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise men turn away wrath. 9If a wise man contends with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest. 10The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul. 11A fool utters all his mind: but a wise man keeps it in till afterwards. 12If a ruler listen to lies, all his servants are wicked. 13The poor and the deceitful man meet together: the LORD lightens both their eyes. 14The king that faithfully judges the poor, his throne shall be established for ever. 15The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself brings his mother to shame. 16When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increases: but the righteous shall see their fall. 17Correct your son, and he shall give you rest; yes, he shall give delight to your soul. 18Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, happy is he. 19A servant will not be corrected by words: for though he understand he will not answer. 20See you a man that is hasty in his words? there is more hope of a fool than of him. 21He that delicately brings up his servant from a child shall have him become his son at the length. 22An angry man stirs up strife, and a furious man abounds in transgression. 23A man's pride shall bring him low: but honor shall uphold the humble in spirit. 24Whoever is partner with a thief hates his own soul: he hears cursing, and denudes it not. 25The fear of man brings a snare: but whoever puts his trust in the LORD shall be safe. 26Many seek the ruler's favor; but every man's judgment comes from the LORD. 27An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.
