5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD; the covenant that he makes, shall not be without chastening.
12 It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness, for the throne is to be established with righteousness.
13 Righteous lips are the delight of kings, and they love him that speaks that which is right.
15 In the light of the king's countenance is life, and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.
16 How much better is it to acquire wisdom than gold! and to acquire understanding is worth more than silver!
17 The highway of the upright is to separate himself from evil; he that keeps his way preserves his soul.
20 He who has understanding in the word shall find good, and blessed is he who trusts in the LORD.
21 The wise in heart is called a man of understanding; and the sweetness of the lips shall increase doctrine.
22 Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that has it, but the instruction of fools is folly.
23 The heart of the wise causes his mouth to be prudent, and with his lips he shall increase doctrine.
32 He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he that rules his spirit than he that takes a city.
