1 Better is a dry morsel in peace than the house of contention full of sacrifices for a feast.
2 A prudent slave shall have rule over a son that causes shame and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren.
5 Whosoever mocks the poor reproaches his Maker, and he that is glad regarding the calamity of someone else shall not go unpunished.
6 Children's children are the crown of old men, and the honour of the children are their fathers.
8 A bribe is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that has it; wherever it turns, it prospers.
9 He that covers a transgression seeks love, but he that repeats a matter separates very friends.
14 To release the waters (to speak rashly) is the beginning of contention; therefore, leave off strife before it gets started.
15 He that justifies the wicked and he that condemns the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.
16 Of what good is the price to buy wisdom in the hand of the fool, seeing he has no heart to understand?
18 A man void of understanding strikes hands and becomes surety in the presence of his friend.
20 He that has a perverse heart shall never find good, and he that stirs up trouble with his tongue shall fall into evil.
24 Wisdom appears upon the countenance of him that has understanding, but the eyes of a fool manifest his folly unto the ends of the earth.
26 It is certainly not good to condemn the just, nor to smite princes for doing that which is upright.
27 He who has knowledge spares his words, and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.
