1 The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, like as are the rivers of water; he may turn it whithersoever he will.
5 The devices of one that is diligent, bring plenteousness; but he that is unadvised, cometh to poverty.
6 Whoso hordeth up riches with the deceitfulness of his tongue: he is a fool, and like unto them that seek their own death.
7 The robberies of the ungodly shall be their own destruction; for they would not do the thing that was right.
9 It is better to dwell in a corner under the housetop; than with a brawling woman in a wide house.
11 When the scornful is punished, the ignorant take the better heed; and when a wise man is warned, he will receive the more understanding.
12 The righteous man wisely considereth the house of the wicked; and for their wickedness, God overthroweth the ungodly.
15 The just delighteth in doing the thing that is right, but the workers of wickedness abhor the same.
16 The man that wandereth out of the way of wisdom, shall remain in the congregation of the dead.
17 He that hath pleasure in banquets, shall be a poor man; Whoso delighteth in wine and delicates, shall not be rich.
20 In a wise man's house there is great treasure and plenteousness; but a foolish body spendeth up all.
22 A wise man winneth the city of the mighty; and as for the strength that they trust in, he bringeth it down.
24 He that is proud and presumptuous, is called a scornful man, which in wrath dare work maliciously.
26 He coveteth and desireth all the day long; but the righteous is always giving and keepeth nothing back.
27 The sacrifice of the ungodly is abomination, for they offer the thing that is gotten with wickedness.
28 A false witness shall perish; but he that will be content to hear, shall always have power to speak himself.
