3 The perfection of the upright shall guide them in the way, but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.
5 The righteousness of the perfect shall straighten his way, but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.
6 The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them, but transgressors shall be imprisoned in their own sin.
9 The hypocrite with his mouth destroys his neighbour, but the just are delivered with wisdom.
10 When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices, and when the wicked perish, there are feasts.
11 By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted, but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.
12 He that is void of understanding despises his neighbour, but the intelligent man remains silent.
14 When intelligence is lacking, the people shall fall, but in the multitude of counsellors there is salvation.
15 With anxiety shall he that is surety for a stranger be afflicted, and he that hates suretiship shall live securely.
18 The wicked works a deceitful work, but to him that sows righteousness shall be a sure reward.
20 They that are of a perverse heart are an abomination to the LORD, but such as are perfect in their way are his delight.
21 No matter how many covenants he has made with death, the wicked shall not be absolved, but the seed of the righteous shall escape.
24 There are those who scatter, and more is added unto them; and there are those who withhold more than is just, but come to poverty.
25 The soul who is a blessing unto others shall be made fat, and he that fills shall be filled also himself.
26 He that withholds the grain, the people shall curse him, but blessing shall be upon the head of him that sells it.
27 He that seeks good early shall find favour, but unto him that seeks evil, it shall come upon him.
29 He that troubles his own house shall inherit the wind, and the fool shall be slave to the wise of heart.
