Proverbs 11:1-3 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

11 False [a]balances are an abomination unto the Lord: but a perfect [b]weight pleaseth him.

When pride cometh, then cometh [c]shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.

The uprightness of the just shall guide them: but the frowardness of the transgressors shall destroy them.


  1. Proverbs 11:1 Under this word he condemneth all false weights, measures and deceit.
  2. Proverbs 11:1 Hebrew, stone.
  3. Proverbs 11:2 When man so getteth himself, and thinketh to be exalted above his vocation, then God bringeth him to confusion.
