1 A man may well purpose a thing in his heart; but the answer of the tongue cometh of the LORD.
4 The LORD doth all things for his own sake; yea, and when he keepeth the ungodly for the day of wrath.
5 The LORD abhorreth all presumptuous and proud hearts; there may neither strength nor power escape.
6 With loving mercy and faithfulness, sins be forgiven; and whoso searcheth the LORD eschewth evil.
12 It is a great abomination when kings are wicked; for a king's seat should be holden up with righteousness.
16 To have wisdom in possession is better than gold; and to get understanding is more worth than silver.
17 The path of the righteous escheweth evil; and whoso looketh well to his ways, keepeth his own soul.
19 Better it is to be of humble mind with the lowly, than to divide the spoils with the proud.
20 He that handleth a matter wisely, obtaineth good; and blessed is he, that putteth his trust in the LORD.
21 Whoso hath a wise understanding is called to counsel; but he that can speak fair, getteth more riches.
22 Understanding is a well of life unto him that hath it; as for the chastening of fools, it is but foolishness.
28 A froward body causeth strife; and he that is a babble of his tongue, maketh division among princes.
30 He that winketh with his eyes, imagineth mischief; and he that biteth his lips, will do some harm.
32 A patient man is better than one strong; and he that can rule himself, is more worth than he that winneth a city.
