6 In kindness and truth pardoned is iniquity, And in the fear of Jehovah Turn thou aside from evil.
16 To get wisdom -- how much better than gold, And to get understanding to be chosen than silver!
17 A highway of the upright is, 'Turn from evil,' Whoso is preserving his soul is watching his way.
23 The heart of the wise causeth his mouth to act wisely, And by his lips he increaseth learning,
32 Better is the slow to anger than the mighty, And the ruler over his spirit than he who is taking a city.
