5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to Jehovah: Though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
12 It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness; For the throne is established by righteousness.
15 In the light of the king's countenance is life; And his favor is as a cloud of the latter rain.
16 How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! Yea, to get understanding is rather to be chosen than silver.
17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: He that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.
19 Better it is to be of a lowly spirit with the poor, Than to divide the spoil with the proud.
20 He that giveth heed unto the word shall find good; And whoso trusteth in Jehovah, happy is he.
21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent; And the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.
22 Understanding is a well-spring of life unto him that hath it; But the correction of fools is their folly.
30 He that shutteth his eyes, it is to devise perverse things: He that compresseth his lips bringeth evil to pass.
32 He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; And he that ruleth his spirit, than he that taketh a city.
