1 The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son makes a glad father; but a foolish son is the sorrow of his mother.
3 Jehovah will not allow the soul of the righteous to go hungry; but He casts away the desire of the wicked.
5 He who gathers in summer is a wise son; but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who causes shame.
11 The mouth of a righteous one is a well of life; but violence covers the mouth of the wicked.
13 In the lips of him who has understanding, wisdom is found; but a rod is for the back of him who is without understanding.
24 What the wicked fears shall come upon him; but the desire of the righteous shall be granted.
25 As the storm passes, so the wicked is no more; but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.
26 Like vinegar to the teeth, and like smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to those who send him.
