2 Where pride is, there is shame also and confusion; but whereas is lowliness, there is wisdom.
3 The innocent dealing of the just shall lead them; but the unfaithfulness of the despisers shall be their own destruction.
5 The righteousness of the innocent ordereth his way; but the ungodly shall fall in his own wickedness.
6 The righteousness of the just shall deliver them; but the despisers shall be taken in their own ungodliness.
9 Through the mouth of the dissembler is his neighbour destroyed; but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.
10 When it goeth well with the righteous, the city is merry; and when the ungodly perish, there is gladness.
11 When the just are in wealth, the city prospereth; but when the ungodly have the rule, it decayeth.
13 A dissembling person will discover privy things; but he that is of a faithful heart, will keep counsel.
14 Where no good counsel is, there the people decay; but whereas are many that can give counsel, there is wealth.
15 He that is surety for a stranger, hurteth himself; but he that meddleth not with suretyship, is sure.
17 He that hath a gentle liberal stomach is merciful; but whoso hurteth his neighbour, is a tyrant.
18 The labour of the ungodly prospereth not; but he that showeth righteousness, shall receive a sure reward.
21 It shall not help the wicked, though they lay all their hands together; but the seed of the righteous shall be preserved.
24 Some man giveth out his goods, and is richer; but the niggard, having enough, will depart from nothing, and yet is ever in poverty.
25 He that is liberal in giving, shall have plenty; and he that watereth, shall be watered also himself.
26 Whoso hordeth up his corn, shall be cursed among the people; but blessing shall light upon his head that selleth it.
27 He that laboureth for honesty findeth his desire; but whoso seeketh after mischief, it shall happen unto him.
28 He that trusteth in his riches shall have a fall; but the righteous shall flourish as the green leaf.
29 Whoso maketh disquietness in his own house, he shall have wind for his heritage; and the fool shall be servant to the wise.
