1 The preparations of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD.
5 Everyone that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though they join hand in hand, none shall 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! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!
17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keeps his way preserves his soul.
19 Better it is to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.
20 He that handles a matter wisely shall find good: and whosoever trusts in the LORD, happy is he.
21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increases learning.
22 Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that has it: but the instruction of fools is folly.
32 He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that rules his spirit than he that takes a city.
