2 A wise servant shall rule over a son that causeth shame, and shall have part in the inheritance among the brethren.
5 Whoso mocketh a poor man reproacheth his Maker; he that is glad at calamity shall not be held innocent.
8 A gift is a precious stone in the eyes of the possessor: whithersoever it turneth it prospereth.
9 He that covereth transgression seeketh love; but he that bringeth a matter up again separateth very friends.
10 A reproof entereth more deeply into him that hath understanding than a hundred stripes into a fool.
14 The beginning of contention is as when one letteth out water; therefore leave off strife before it become vehement.
15 He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the righteous, even they both are abomination to Jehovah.
16 To what purpose is there a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing he hath no sense?
19 He loveth transgression that loveth a quarrel; he that maketh high his gate seeketh destruction.
20 He that hath a perverse heart findeth no good; and he that shifteth about with his tongue falleth into evil.
24 Wisdom is before him that hath understanding; but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.
