2 A servant who deals wisely shall have rule over a son who causes shame, and shall have part in the inheritance among the brothers.
5 He who mocks a poor man reproaches his maker. He who is glad at calamity shall not be unpunished.
9 He who covers a transgression seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates chief friends.
14 The beginning of strife is [like] letting out water. Therefore leave off contention, before there is quarrelling.
15 He who justifies a wicked man, and he who condemns a righteous man, both of them alike are an abomination to LORD.
18 A man void of understanding strikes hands, and becomes surety in the presence of his neighbor.
20 He who has a wayward heart finds no good, and he who has a perverse tongue falls into mischief.
24 Wisdom is before the face of him who has understanding, but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.
27 He who spares his words has knowledge, and he who is of a cool spirit is a man of understanding.
