7 All the relatives of a poor person shun him how much more do his friends avoid him! Though he runs after them pleading, they aren't around.
10 It's not fitting for a fool to live in luxury; neither is it for a servant to rule over princes.
11 A person's discretion makes him slow to anger, and it is to his credit that he ignores an offence.
13 A father's ruin is a foolish son, and a wife's quarreling is like dripping water that never stops.
14 A house and self-sufficiency are a father's inheritance, but from the LORD comes an insightful wife.
16 Whoever obeys a commandment keeps himself safe, but someone who is contemptuous in conduct will die.
17 Whoever is kind to the poor is lending to the LORD the benefit of his gift will return to him in abundance.
19 The person who has great anger must pay the consequences, because if you rescue him, you will have to do it again.
23 The fear of the LORD leads to life; whoever is satisfied with it will rest, untouched by evil.
24 The lazy person buries his hand in his dish and doesn't bother to bring it back to his mouth.
25 If you scourge a scoffer, the simple person may learn to be discreet; rebuke a discerning man and he will gain understanding.
26 Whoever mistreats his father and alienates his mother is a son who brings both shame and disrespect.
27 My son, if you stop listening to instruction, you will stray from the principles of knowledge.
