1 Better is a poor man who walks in his integrity than he who is perverse in his lips and is a fool.
2 Also, that the soul be without knowledge is not good. And he who hastens with his feet sins.
6 Many will entreat the favor of a generous man, and every man is a friend to him who gives gifts.
7 All the brothers of a poor man hate him, how much more do his friends go far from him! He pursues [with] words, [but] they are gone.
10 Luxurious living is not fitting for a fool, much less for a servant to have rule over rulers.
11 The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger, and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.
13 A foolish son is the calamity of his father, and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.
19 A man of great wrath shall bear the penalty, for if thou deliver [him], thou must do it yet again.
22 That which makes a man to be desired is his kindness, and a poor man is better than a liar.
23 The fear of LORD is life to a man, and he shall abide satisfied. He shall not be visited with evil.
24 The sluggard buries his hand in the dish, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
25 Smite a scoffer, and a simple man will learn prudence. And reprove him who has understanding, [and] he will understand knowledge.
26 He who does violence to his father, and chases away his mother, is a son that causes shame and brings reproach.
