2 A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth; But the soul of the treacherous'shall eat violence.
3 He that guardeth his mouth keepeth his life; But he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.
4 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing; But the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
6 Righteousness guardeth him that is upright in the way; But wickedness overthroweth the sinner.
7 There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: There is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great wealth.
11 Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished; But he that gathereth by labor shall have increase.
13 Whoso despiseth the word bringeth destruction on himself; But he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.
18 Poverty and shame'shall be to him that refuseth correction; But he that regardeth reproof shall be honored.
19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul; But it is an abomination to fools to depart from evil.
22 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children; And the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the righteous.
23 Much food is in the tillage of the poor; But there is that is destroyed by reason of injustice.
