28:1 恶人虽无人追赶也逃跑,义人却胆壮像狮子。

The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.

28:2 邦国因有罪过,君王就多更换。因有聪明知识的人,国必长存。

For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.

28:3 穷人欺压贫民,好像暴雨冲没粮食。

A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.

28:4 违弃律法的,夸奖恶人。遵守律法的,却与恶人相争。

They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.

28:5 坏人不明白公义。惟有寻求耶和华的,无不明白。

Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things.

28:6 行为纯正的穷乏人,胜过行事乖僻的富足人。

Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.

28:7 谨守律法的是智慧之子。与贪食人作伴的,却羞辱其父。

Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.

28:8 人以厚利加增财物,是给那怜悯穷人者积蓄的。

He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.

28:9 转耳不听律法的,他的祈祷也为可憎。

He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.

28:10 诱惑正直人行恶道的,必掉在自己的坑里。惟有完全人,必承受福分。

Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: but the upright shall have good things in possession.

28:11 富足人自以为有智慧。但聪明的贫穷人,能将他查透。

The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out.

28:12 义人得志有大荣耀。恶人兴起人就躲藏。

When righteous men do rejoice, there is great glory: but when the wicked rise, a man is hidden.

28:13 遮掩自己罪过的,必不享通。承认离弃罪过的,必蒙怜恤。

He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

28:14 常存敬畏的,便为有福。心存刚硬的,必陷在祸患里。

Happy is the man that feareth alway: but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief.

28:15 暴虐的君王辖制贫民。好像吼叫的狮子,觅食的熊。

As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.

A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.

28:21 看人的情面,乃为不好。人因一块饼枉法,也为不好。

To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.

28:22 人有恶眼想要急速发财,却不知穷乏必临到他身。

He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.

28:23 责备人的,后来蒙人喜悦,多于那用舌头谄媚人的。

He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.

28:24 偷窃父母的,说,这不是罪。此人就是与强盗同类。

Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer.

When the wicked rise, men hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase.

箴言28参考

国家领袖对政局的影响不言而喻,老百姓的行为呢?
28:2 要想使一个政府或是团体、社会得以长存,就需要有聪明、有知识的领袖,然而这种人难得。“君王就多更换”,是指国家的政局非常不稳定。另一方面,各人的自私行为也会影响到别人甚至整个国家。自私的雇员在工作中偷懒,会影响那机构的生产力。自私的司机在驾车前醉酒,会使交通不安全。自私的配偶与别人通奸,就会破坏好几个家庭。只要多数人都只为自己而活,不理会自己的行为对别人的影响,道德的败坏就会污染整个国家,使社会动荡不安。你是造成问题的一分子,还是协助解决问题的一员呢?

事事都以神的公义为原则好像行不通吧?可以通融吗?
28:5 因为公义是神本质的一部分,所以信神的人必须以公义待人。公义的开端是关注别人所遇到的事。基督徒对人类的苦难要事事关心,因为神是爱世人的;我们绝不可用自私的商业惯例或不公平的政策,来造成人类的痛苦。你应竭力地追求公义,不要在道德底线上徘徊。

祷告不蒙垂听,会不会是我的行为……
28:9 如果我们祷告完毕后马上又去犯罪,神是不会回应这祷告的。但是只要我们愿意离弃罪而信从神,不管我们所犯的罪有多么重,他都愿意垂听。使他掩耳不听我们祷告的原因,并不是我们的罪有多深,而是想再犯罪的意图。

你□慕富人吗?你和富人比较,缺的是甚么呢?
28:11 富足人常常以为自己了不起,不需要倚靠别人,看自己所做的一切全是好的。其实那只是一种虚空的自负。穷人在艰苦奋斗时,藉著倚靠神,使灵命丰足,这是再多财富也买不到的。富人可能失去所有的物质财富,穷人的好品德却没有人能夺去。不要嫉妒富人,因为他们一生仅能拥有的只是金钱。

“我有错吗?是我的错吗?本来……其实……”停!
28:13 人类的本性都是想隐藏自己的罪或忽视本身的过错。只是若你不承认自己犯了过错,就不容易从错误中学习。若失败未能教导你长进的话,过错对你有甚么用处?要想从错误中学到教训,你就需要对它直认不讳,并加以分析、改正,使你不会再犯。人人都会犯错,只有愚昧人才会一犯再犯。

我知道自己错了,可是让我认错却……
28:13 我们常不承认自己的错误,这也是我们敬佩那些公开承认罪过的人的原因。这种人对自身有充分的评估,他们并不需辨明自己总是对的才心里舒服。要愿意承认自己的罪,在必要时改变自己的计划。请谨记,得蒙赦罪的第一步就是认罪。

我是“常存敬畏的”吗?
28:14 “常存敬畏的”,是指那些对神肃然起敬,尊崇他的人。

对有血债的人,神是如何对待的?你怎样看?
28:17-18 罪人的良心可令他深感罪咎而忏悔,如若他不肯忏悔则会逐渐丧失良知。减轻他的罪咎感并不是慈爱的表现;因为他愈感到罪咎,他就愈会寻求神而悔改。如果我们帮助他减轻罪咎感,只会令他更容易地继续犯罪。
“凭我的经验和本事,这事绝没问题!”结果呢?
28:26 许多人都将大胆行事的个人主义者看成英雄。我们也常佩服那些敢作敢为、自我奋斗的人。他们极力争取自己想要的东西,只信赖自己,既不给别人忠告,也不寻求别人的指点。但这与神的道完全不同。人不能预知未来,也不能肯定自己所选择的结果。所以完全信赖自己的人,注定要失败;智慧人却会倚靠神。

关怀穷困者是说说而已吗?你为他们做过些甚么?
28:27 神要我们关怀穷人,不可忽视他们。这节箴言的第二部分,可以改述为“睁开眼目顾惜贫穷者,必蒙神赐福”。如果我们帮助在患难中的人,他们必然会尽其所能来报答(参11:24-25)。保罗也曾讲过神必供给我们一切所需的(参腓4:19);他常是通过其他人来这样做。你现在如何为神向有需要的人提供援助呢?
