3 The integrity of the upright leadeth them, And the perverseness of the treacherous destroyeth them.
5 The righteousness of the perfect maketh right his way, And by his wickedness doth the wicked fall.
6 The righteousness of the upright delivereth them, And in mischief the treacherous are captured.
7 In the death of a wicked man, hope perisheth, And the expectation of the iniquitous hath been lost.
9 With the mouth a hypocrite corrupteth his friend, And by knowledge the righteous are drawn out.
10 In the good of the righteous a city exulteth, And in the destruction of the wicked is singing.
11 By the blessing of the upright is a city exalted, And by the mouth of the wicked thrown down.
12 Whoso is despising his neighbour lacketh heart, And a man of understanding keepeth silence.
15 Evil one suffereth when he hath been surety for a stranger, And whoso is hating suretyship is confident.
20 An abomination to Jehovah are the perverse of heart, And the perfect of the way are His delight.
24 There is who is scattering, and yet is increased, And who is keeping back from uprightness, only to want.
26 Whoso is withholding corn, the people execrate him, And a blessing is for the head of him who is selling.
27 Whoso is earnestly seeking good Seeketh a pleasing thing, And whoso is seeking evil -- it meeteth him.
29 Whoso is troubling his own house inheriteth wind, And a servant is the fool to the wise of heart.
