2 A wise servant 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 at calamity shall not be unpunished.
8 A bribe is as a magic stone in the eyes of him that gives it: wherever he turns, he prospers.
9 He that covers over a transgression seeks love; but he that repeats a matter separates close friends.
14 The beginning of strife is like releasing water: therefore leave off contention, before a quarrel starts.
15 He that justifies the wicked, and he that condemns the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.
18 A man void of understanding gives pledge, and becomes surety in the presence of his neighbor.
20 He that has a crooked heart finds no good: and he that has a perverse tongue falls into calamity.
24 Wisdom is before him that has understanding; but the eyes of a fool are on the ends of the earth.
27 He that has knowledge spares his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.
