5 Everyone proud in heart is hateful to Jehovah; though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
12 It is a hateful thing for kings to commit wickedness; for the throne is established by righteousness.
16 How much better it is to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is rather to be chosen than silver!
19 It is better to be of an humble spirit with the lowly than to divide the spoil with the proud.
20 He who handles a matter wisely shall find good, and whoever trusts in Jehovah, happy is he.
21 The wise in heart shall be called prudent, and the sweetness of the lips increases learning.
22 Understanding is a fountain of life to him who has it, but the instruction of fools is folly.
32 He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit is better than he who takes a city.
