2 Of the fruit of his mouth man shall eat well: but the soul of the transgressors shall starve.
3 He that keeps his mouth keeps his life: but he that opens his lips often shall have calamity.
4 The soul of the sluggard desires, and attains nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
7 There are those that make themselves rich, yet have nothing: there are those that make themselves poor, yet have great riches.
12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick: but when the desire is fulfilled, it is a tree of life.
13 Whosoever despises the word shall perish by it: but he that fears the commandment shall be rewarded.
18 Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuses chastening: but he that regards reproof shall be honoured.
19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil.
22 A good man shall leave an inheritance to his children's children, and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.
