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 lead only to plenty; but of everyone that is hasty, only to want.
6 The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.
9 It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a contentious woman in a whole house.
11 When the scoffer is punished, the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receives knowledge.
12 The righteous man wisely considers the house of the wicked: but God overthrows the wicked for their wickedness.
13 Whosoever stops his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.
16 The man that wanders out of the way of understanding shall remain 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.
22 A wise man scales the city of the mighty, and casts down the stronghold in which they trust.
27 The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he brings it with a wicked mind?
