7 A person who is full tramples on a honeycomb, but to a hungry person, any bitter thing is sweet.
9 Oil and incense bring joy to the heart, and the sweetness of a friend is better than self-counsel.
10 Don't abandon your friend or your father's friend, and don't go to your brother's house in your time of calamity; better a neighbor nearby than a brother far away.
13 Take his garment, for he has put up security for a stranger; get collateral if it is for foreigners.
14 If one blesses his neighbor with a loud voice early in the morning, it will be counted as a curse to him.
15 An endless dripping on a rainy day and a nagging wife are alike. 16 The one who controls her controls the wind and grasps oil with his right hand.
18 Whoever tends a fig tree will eat its fruit, and whoever looks after his master will be honored.
22 Though you grind a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with grain, you will not separate his foolishness from him.
23 Know well the condition of your flock, and pay attention to your herds, 24 for wealth is not forever; not even a crown lasts for all time. 25 When hay is removed and new growth appears and the grain from the hills is gathered in, 26 lambs will provide your clothing, and goats, the price of a field; 27 there will be enough goat's milk for your food- food for your household and nourishment for your servants.
