1 The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water, he turns it wherever he will.
5 The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness, but of every one that is too hasty, only to want.
6 The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of those that seek death.
9 It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop than with a brawling woman in a wide house.
11 When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise, and by instructing the wise, he receives wisdom.
12 The righteous man wisely considers the house of the wicked, how God overthrows the wicked for their evil.
13 Whosoever stops his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself but shall not be heard.
15 It is joy to the just to do judgment, but it shall be destruction to the workers of iniquity.
16 The man that wanders out of the way of wisdom shall end up in the congregation of the dead.
20 There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spends it up.
26 There is one who covets greedily all day long, but the righteous gives and keeps on giving.
27 The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination; how much more, when he brings it with lewdness?
