1 Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
2 Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.
6 Many will entreat the favor of the prince: and every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts.
7 All the brethren of the poor do hate him: how much more do his friends go far from him? he pursueth them with words, yet they are wanting to him.
11 The discretion of a man deferreth his 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.
16 He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul; but he that despiseth his ways shall die.
17 He that hath pity upon the poor, lendeth to the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.
19 A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou deliver him, yet thou must do it again.
21 There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.
23 The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.
24 A slothful man hideth his hand in his bosom, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
25 Smite a scorner and the simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, and he will understand knowledge.
26 He that wasteth his father, and chaseth away his mother, is a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach.
