4 The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.
5 To respect the person of the wicked so that the righteous loses that which is rightfully his is not good.
8 The words of a talebearer seem smooth, but they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
12 Before being broken, the heart of man is haughty, and before coming into honour, comes being brought to humility.
15 The heart of the man of understanding acquires wisdom, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
19 A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city, and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.
20 A man's belly shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth, and with the product of his lips shall he be filled.
