5 The plans of the diligent surely lead to profit; and everyone who is hasty surely rushes to poverty.
9 It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than to share a house with a contentious woman.
11 When the mocker is punished, the simple gains wisdom. When the wise is instructed, he receives knowledge.
13 Whoever stops his ears at the cry of the poor, he will also cry out, but shall not be heard.
15 It is joy to the righteous to do justice; but it is a destruction to the workers of iniquity.
16 The man who wanders out of the way of understanding shall rest in the assembly of the dead.
20 There is precious treasure and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man swallows it up.
26 There are those who covet greedily all day long; but the righteous give and do not withhold.
27 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination: how much more, when he brings it with a wicked mind.
