1 The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son makes a glad father: but a foolish son is the grief of his mother.
3 The LORD will not allow the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casts away the desire of the wicked.
5 He that gathers in summer is a wise son: but he that sleeps in harvest is a son that causes shame.
11 The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covers the mouth of the wicked.
13 In the lips of him that has understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.
24 The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him: but the desire of the righteous shall be granted.
25 As the whirlwind passes, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.
26 As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that send him.
28 The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
29 The way of the LORD is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.
