1 Every, wise woman, buildeth up her house, but, a foolish one, with her own hands, would break it down.
2 He that walketh in his uprightness, is one who revereth Yahweh, but, he that is crooked in his way, is one who despiseth him.
3 In the mouth of the foolish, is a haughty rod, but, as for the lips of the wise, thou shalt give heed to them!
7 Get thee from the presence of a man that is a dullard, when thou perceivest not the lips of knowledge.
8 The wisdom of the prudent, is to understand his way, but, the folly of dullards, is a fraud.
11 The house of the lawless, shall be destroyed, but, the tent of the upright, shall flourish.
14 With his own ways, shall be filled the backslider in heart, and, from himself, shall a good man be satisfied .
21 He that sheweth contempt for his neighbour, sinneth, but, he that sheweth favour to the afflicted, how happy is he!
22 Shall they not, become vagrants, who devise evil? but, lovingkindness and faithfulness, be to them who devise good.
26 In the reverence of Yahweh, is strong security, and, his children, shall have a place of refuge.
27 The reverence of Yahweh, is a well-spring of life, that a man may avoid the snares of death.
28 In the multitude of a people, is the majesty of the king, but, in the ceasing of population, is the ruin of the prince.
31 The oppressor of the poor, hath reproached his Maker, but he that sheweth favour to the needy, is one who, holdeth Him in honour.
32 By his own wickedness, shall the lawless man, be thrust down, but the righteous, seeketh refuge in his integrity.
33 In the heart of the intelligent, reposeth wisdom, but, in the midst of dullards, it maketh itself known.
