1 The king's heart is in the hand of Jehovah as the watercourses: He turneth it whithersoever he will.
5 The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; But every one that is hasty hasteth only to want.
6 The getting of treasures by a lying tongue Is a vapor driven to and fro by them that seek death.
8 The way of him that is laden with guilt is exceeding crooked; But as for the pure, his work is right.
9 It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, Than with a contentious woman in a wide house.
11 When the scoffer is punished, the simple is made wise; And when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.
12 The righteous man considereth the house of the wicked, How the wicked are overthrown to their ruin.
15 It is joy to the righteous to do justice; But it is a destruction to the workers of iniquity.
16 The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding Shall rest in the assembly of the dead.
17 He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: He that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.
18 The wicked is a ransom for the righteous; And the treacherous cometh in the stead of the upright.
20 There is precious treasure and oil in the dwelling of the wise; But a foolish man swalloweth it up.
22 A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, And bringeth down the strength of the confidence thereof.
26 There is that coveteth greedily all the day long; But the righteous giveth and withholdeth not.
27 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination: How much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind!
