“They that forsake the law, praise the wicked: but such as keepe the Law, contend with them.”
King James Version (KJV)
1. The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bolde as a lyon. 2. For the transgression of a land, many are the princes thereof: but by a man of vnderstanding and knowledge the state thereof shall bee prolonged. 3. A poore man that oppresseth the poore, is like a sweeping raine which leaueth no food. 4. They that forsake the law, praise the wicked: but such as keepe the Law, contend with them. 5. Euill men vnderstand not iudgement: but they that seeke the Lord, vnderstand all things. 6. Better is the poore that walketh in his vprightnesse, then he that is peruerse in his wayes, though he be rich. 7. Whoso keepeth the law, is a wise sonne: but he that is a companion of riotous men, shameth his father.
