The Proverbs - Chapter 28
The Proverbs Chapters
2 A country in revolt throws up many leaders: with one person wise and experienced, you have stability.
6 Better someone poor living an honest life than someone of devious ways however rich.
9 Whoever refuses to listen to the Law, such a one's very prayer is an abomination.
11 The rich may think himself wise, but the intelligent poor will unmask him.
16 An unenlightened ruler is rich in rapacity, one who hates greed will lengthen his days.
23 Anyone who reproves another will enjoy more favour in the end than the flatterer.
26 Whoever trusts his own wit is a fool, anyone whose ways are wise will be safe.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
