2 A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors feeds on violence.
3 He that keeps his mouth keeps his life: but he that opens wide his lips shall have destruction.
4 The soul of the sluggard desires, and has nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.
7 There is one that makes himself rich, yet has nothing: there is one that makes himself poor, yet has 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 be destroyed: but he that fears the commandment shall be rewarded.
18 Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuses instruction: but he that regards reproof shall be honored.
19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil.
22 A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children: but the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.
23 Much food is in the fallow ground of the poor: but there is that is destroyed for lack of justice.
