2 Where no discretion is, there the soul is not well; and whoso is swift on foot, stumbleth hastily.
3 Foolishness maketh a man to go out of his way, and then is his heart impatient against the LORD.
7 As for the poor, he is hated among all his brethren; yea, his own friends forsake him, and he that giveth credence unto words, getteth nothing.
10 Delicate ease becometh not a fool; much more unseemly is it, a bond man to have the rule of princes.
12 The king's disfavor is like the roaring of a Lion, but his friendship is like the dew upon the grass.
13 An indiscreet son is the heaviness of his father; and a brawling wife is like the top of a house, wherethrough it is ever dropping.
14 House and riches may a man have by the heritage of his elders; but a discreet woman is the gift of the LORD.
16 Whoso keepeth the commandment, keepeth his own soul; but he that regardeth not his way, shall die.
17 He that hath pity upon the poor, lendeth unto the LORD; and look, what he layeth out, it shall be paid him again.
19 For great wrath bringeth harm; therefore let him go, and so mayest thou teach him more nurture.
20 O give ear unto good counsel, and be content to be reformed; that thou mayest be wise here after.
23 The fear of the LORD preserveth the life; yea it giveth plenteousness, without the visitation of any plague.
25 If thou smitest a scornful person, the ignorant shall take better heed; and if thou reprovest one that hath understanding, he will be the wiser.
27 My son, heareth no more the doctrine that leadeth thee away from the words of understanding.
28 A false witness laugheth judgement to scorn; and the mouth of the ungodly eateth up wickedness.
