2 The good man shall attain the favour of the LORD, but the man of wicked thoughts he will condemn.
3 Man shall not be established by wickedness, but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.
4 The virtuous woman is a crown to her husband, but she that makes ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.
6 The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood, but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.
7 God shall overthrow the wicked, and they shall not be any longer, but the house of the righteous shall remain.
8 A man shall be commended according to his wisdom, but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.
9 He that despises himself and becomes a slave is better than he that honours himself and lacks bread.
11 He that tills his land shall be satisfied with bread, but he that follows vain persons is void of understanding.
13 The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips, but the just shall come out of the tribulation.
14 Man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth, and the recompense of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him.
18 There are those that speak like the piercings of a sword, but the tongue of the wise is medicine.
20 Deceit is in the heart of those whose thoughts are evil, but joy in that of those whose thoughts are good.
26 The righteous causes his neighbour to consider: but the way of the wicked causes them to err.
27 The deceitful man does not even roast that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious.
