5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: 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 a 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 keepeth his way preserveth 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 handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoever trusteth in the LORD, 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 to him that hath it: but the instruction of fools is folly.
32 He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit, than he that taketh a city.
