3 A man shall not be established by wickedness, but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.
4 A worthy woman is the crown of her husband, but she who makes ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.
6 The words of the wicked lay in wait for blood, but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.
8 A man shall be commended according to his wisdom, but he who is of a perverse heart shall be despised.
9 Better is he who is lightly esteemed, and has a servant, than he who honors himself, and lacks bread.
10 A righteous man regards the life of his beast, but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.
11 He who tills his land shall have plenty of bread, but he who pursues vanities is void of understanding.
13 A wicked man is snared by the transgression of [his] lips, but the righteous shall come out of trouble.
14 A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth, and the actions of a man's hands shall be rendered to him.
18 There is he who speaks rashly like the piercings of a sword, but the tongue of the wise is health.
21 There shall no mischief happen to a righteous man, but the wicked shall be filled with evil.
27 The slothful man roasts not that which he took in hunting, but the substance of a diligent man [is] precious.
