5 The righteousness of the blameless clears his path, but the wicked person will fall because of his wickedness.
6 The righteousness of the upright rescues them, but the treacherous are trapped by their own desires.
9 With his mouth the ungodly destroys his neighbor, but through knowledge the righteous are rescued.
10 When the righteous thrive, a city rejoices, and when the wicked die, there is joyful shouting.
11 A city is built up by the blessing of the upright, but it is torn down by the mouth of the wicked.
12 Whoever shows contempt for his neighbor lacks sense, but a man with understanding keeps silent.
15 If someone puts up security for a stranger, he will suffer for it, but the one who hates such agreements is protected.
20 Those with twisted minds are detestable to the Lord, but those with blameless conduct are His delight.
21 Be assured that the wicked will not go unpunished, but the offspring of the righteous will escape.
24 One person gives freely, yet gains more; another withholds what is right, only to become poor.
25 A generous person will be enriched, and the one who gives a drink of water will receive water.
26 People will curse anyone who hoards grain, but a blessing will come to the one who sells it.
27 The one who searches for what is good finds favor, but if someone looks for trouble, it will come to him.
29 The one who brings ruin on his household will inherit the wind, and a fool will be a slave to someone whose heart is wise.
