1 Better is the poor who walks in his integrity than he who is perverse in his lips and is a fool.
2 It isn't good to have zeal without knowledge; nor being hasty with one's feet and missing the way.
7 All the relatives of the poor shun him: how much more do his friends avoid him! He pursues them with pleas, but they are gone.
10 Delicate living is not appropriate for a fool, much less for a servant to have rule over princes.
16 He who keeps the commandment keeps his soul, but he who is contemptuous in his ways shall die.
23 The fear of Yahweh leads to life, then contentment; he rests and will not be touched by trouble.
24 The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
25 Flog a scoffer, and the simple will learn prudence; rebuke one who has understanding, and he will gain knowledge.
26 He who robs his father and drives away his mother, is a son who causes shame and brings reproach.
