1 Better is a dry piece of bread, and quietness with it, than a house full of sacrifices with fighting.
2 A wise servant shall have rule over a son who causes shame, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brothers.
5 Whoever scorns the poor reviles his Maker; he who is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.
8 A bribe is like a precious stone in the eyes of him who has it; wherever he turns, he is prudent.
14 The beginning of strife is like letting out water; therefore leave off fighting, before it breaks out.
15 He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the just, even both of them are hateful to Jehovah.
20 He who has a perverse heart finds no good, and he who has a crooked tongue falls into mischief.
24 Wisdom is before him who has understanding, but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.
